Ryan Reynolds Is Ready for a Deadpool and Mickey Mouse Team-Up

Ryan Reynolds Is Ready for a Deadpool and Mickey Mouse Team-Up
Scary but true, Deadpool 2 could arrive under the Disney banner. But we doubt a lick of it will be changed. Ryan Reynolds has channeled his inner Wade Wilson while weighing in on this possible merger between Disney and Twentieth Century Fox. Speculation about the merger has reached fever pitch, with many insiders predicting that the deal can be finalized as early as next week. This has prompted some excitement and fear among the hardcore Marvel fans. On one hand, we could possibly see some X-Men crossover in the McU, which fans have wanted to see since the inception of the true Marvel movie universe. On the other hand, many are concerned that Disney would try and sanitize characters like Deadpool.

Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter to poke some fun at the idea of the possibly pending merger by contrasting the difference between Deadpool and Disney's mascot. Reynolds retweeted a story

Pink Explains Why She's Raising Daughter Willow as Gender Neutral

Pink Explains Why She's Raising Daughter Willow as Gender Neutral
Pink is opening up about her "very label-less household."

In a new interview with The Sunday People, the "What About Us" singer gets candid about life at home with her husband, Carey Hart, and their two children, daughter Willow, 6, and Jameson, 11 months. She reveals that she's raising their kids as gender neutral.

"I was in a school and the bathroom outside the kindergarten said, 'Gender Neutral – anybody,' and it was a drawing of many different shapes," the 38-year-old singer recalls. "I took a picture of it and I wrote, 'Progress.' I thought that was awesome. I love that kids are having this conversation."

Pink continues on, telling the outlet she and Willow have already had plenty of their own conversations on gender neutrality. In fact, Pink says she sees herself as a pre-teen boy.

"I do bake sales and lemonade stands. I take my kid to school and try to get there on time," she says

Subtle Trump Shade? Obama Says He Has More Twitter Followers Than 'Other People Who Use It More Often'

Subtle Trump Shade? Obama Says He Has More Twitter Followers Than 'Other People Who Use It More Often'
President Donald Trump has always taken pride in his Twitter following of more than 40 million people. But now, former President Barack Obama is here to remind you that he has more than double the followers.

Without naming any names, Obama appeared to subtly shade his Twitter-obsessed successor during a leadership forum in New Delhi, India, on Friday, where he noted: “I’ve got 100 million Twitter followers. I actually have more than other people who use it more often.”

(For the record, Obama has around 97 million Twitter followers while Trump has 44 million.)

Obama also touched on his Twitter habits, which read

Mayor Taylor Swift? Newly Published List Reveals Surprising Celebrity Write-Ins for N.Y.C. Mayor
New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio won a second term a few weeks ago — despite, as it turns out, having some pretty famous competition.

A list of all the people who received votes in the 2017 N.Y.C. mayoral election was released by the city’s Board of Elections on Wednesday, and it has a few familiar names on it. Quite a few, in fact: Though there was a lighter turnout for this year’s mayoral election than in years past, The New York Times reported that there were more write-in votes than ever.

And it turns out there are

1944: The Three Caballeros

by Tim Brayton

We're celebrating the cinema 1944 right now at the Film Experience, and as the resident animation lover, how could I pass up the chance to take a look at that year's most wonderfully bizarre cartoon? I'm referring to Disney's The Three Caballeros, the studio's second feature-length contribution to the United States government's Good Neighbor policy during World War II. That program involved goodwill tours and films tailor-made for Latin American audiences, and in Disney's case, a combination of both: a research trip to South America with Walt Disney and several of his most important artists result in the creation of 1942's Saludos Amigos, in which international icons Donald Duck and Goofy had fun visiting Brazil and Argentina, respectively, and learning all about the locals.

Saludos Amigos is a charming, slight movie (at 42 minutes, it severely tests the definition of the term "feature film"), and exactly what you'd anticipate from the description "the U.

DuckTales revival: the comics to read before you watch

Paul Bullock Nov 7, 2017

With a preview of the new DuckTales arriving in the UK this month, we look at the comics to read as background...

The return of DuckTales (a wooo-oooo!) has brought about renewed interest in the adventures of Scrooge McDuck, his n’er-do-well nephew Donald and the world’s most famous Junior Woodchucks Huey, Dewey and Louie. It may still be in its first season over in the Us, but the new series has already received high praise, with critics citing as a major positive the reverence it has towards legendary comics writer and artist Carl Barks.

Don’T Torture A Duckling – The Blu Review

Review by Roger Carpenter

While Lucio Fulci made his reputation with a series of graphically violent horror movies like Zombie (Aka Zombi 2), City of the Living Dead (Aka The Gates of Hell), The House by the Cemetery, The Beyond, and The New York Ripper, his early career was a hodgepodge of film genres including comedies, spaghetti westerns, and poliziotteschi. However, many critics argue that his greatest films were his early gialli films like A Lizard in a Woman’s Skin and Don’t Torture a Duckling. Fulci was handicapped by terribly low budgets for most of his career but some of his earlier works were actually well-funded, allowing his cinematic craftsmanship to be on full display. Such was the case with Don’t Torture a Duckling.

As was the case with many gialli of the time period, the film titles were influenced by Argento’s first three gialli, collectively known as the “Animal Trilogy.

Who is Gladstone Gander on DuckTales?

Gladstone Gander is a character from the Donald Duck comics. Like his name suggests, he is a goose rather than a duck, but in spite of this fact, he is stated to be Donald’s cousin and one of Scrooge’s nephews. Since this makes Gladstone one of Scrooge’s potential heirs, this makes him Donald’s rival, though there are other factors that have contributed to make him so. For example, Gladstone is lucky, so much so that he can get whatever he wants without having to spend time and effort on the matter. Something that must be an enormous source of frustration

Catherine Tate reunites with David Tennant on Disney’s DuckTales

Disney has announced that Doctor Who alum Catherine Tate reunites with her former co-star David Tennant (voice of Scrooge McDuck) when she joins the cast of DuckTales as iconic villain Magica De Spell, Scrooge McDuck’s oldest, bitterest enemy in the new Disney Channel series DuckTales.

Magica De Spell made her first appearance in the 1961 comic book Uncle Scrooge #36. Obsessed with exacting her cruel (and needlessly elaborate) revenge, the malevolent Sorceress of the Shadows plans to infiltrate Scrooge’s family with the help of her niece Lena, voiced by Kimiko Glenn (Orange Is the New Black).

Ed Catto: One Man’s Treasure

  • Comicmix
You know the old saying: One’s man’s trash is another man’s treasure. That applies to me and my pals so often.

Now, I realize I’m very blessed: I have a great bunch of friends. I share interests and/or a long history with each them. I guess that’s part of the definition of a friend. But we don’t all love the same stuff. And when it comes to Geek Culture, a bunch of my friends just aren’t that into it.

I pity those fools as I flip through the latest PaperGirls.

Freddie P is that type of friend. He’s a long-time pal. We grew up in the same small town, kept in touch through college and lived near another in those wild just-a-few-years-outta-college days. After that, we always stayed in touch. We’ve watched each other’s families grow up. We laughed

Q&A: Liesl Ahlers on Bringing Out Both Sides of Marina in Friend Request

  • DailyDead
You'd think it would be difficult to empathize with someone who uses Facebook to destroy people's lives in gruesome ways, but Liesl Ahlers absolutely pulls it off in Friend Request. With the new horror film coming out in Us theaters this Friday from Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures (the same studio behind the recent Us theatrical release of 47 Meters Down), I had the great pleasure of catching up with actress Liesl Ahlers, who plays Marina, the social outcast who blends witchcraft and social media to haunt her college classmate Laura (Alycia Debnam-Carey) and her friends. During the Q&A, Ahlers discusses how she brought out both the humanity and the vengeful side of Marina, learning to walk on stilts for the demonic version of the character, which member of The Breakfast Club she thinks Marina shares similarities with, and much more.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us,

Mike Gold: How Are You Getting Your Marvel Stories?

  • Comicmix
In this very space last week, I suggested there was a reason Marvel’s sales are off that is in addition to the negative reader reaction to such events as Civil War 2 and Secret Empire.

Let’s spread some numbers around. Buying into these mega-events is expensive. Each consists of dozens and dozens of comics — mini-series, tie-ins, one-shots, and so on. Each event takes about 50 or 60 hours to read in their entirety. The post-event comics come out after that, and you might be compelled to check out a few of the ongoing titles where the event changed the characters therein, although Marvel usually abandons those changes around the time the next relevant movie comes out. That’s more money and more time.

The whole thing takes the better part of a year to unfold; longer, as these days each Marvel event tends to segue into the next. You’ve got

This video looks to give some clarity and share some history in regards to that question, and if you got time to kill today watching a DuckTales video...it's worth your time.

Why Comedic ‘SNL’ and ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ Dominate the Original Music and Lyrics Emmy Race

Why Comedic ‘SNL’ and ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ Dominate the Original Music and Lyrics Emmy Race
The mood got decidedly funnier and edgier in this year’s Emmy race for Original Music and Lyrics. It was a badly needed tonic for the country. Most notably, Tina Fey joined the musical fray for the first time, looking for her 10th Emmy with the hilarious “Hell No,” a tribute to Beyonce’s “Lemonade” (featuring an enraged Tituss Burgess) from “Unbreakable Kimmie Schmidt.”

But, given the current zeitgeist, it’s not surprising that Chance the Rapper was nominated for his Run-d.M.C.–inspired rap tribute to Obama, “Last Christmas,” from “Saturday Night Live,” or that Rachel Bloom was back again with the raunchy “We Tapped That Ass” from “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.” There was even room for the excruciatingly uncomfortable “The Ballad of Claus Jorstad (Devil Stool)” from “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” and and the animated burlesque of “Jing-a-Ling-a-Ling” from “Duck the Halls: A Mickey Mouse Christmas Special.”

Apart from comedy, there’s

Review: First Episode of The Ducktales Revival! Woo-oo!

I'll start out by saying I've never been a huge fan of television series' that anthropomorphize its characters. I've just always thought that people should be people and animals should be animals. You don't mix the two. But Ducktales has always been enjoyable because of its focus on the fun adventures that the characters find themselves in. I was skeptical when I first heard Disney was making a new series, but all my skeptical thoughts disappeared as I watched the first episode/hour long movie that opened the series. 

The characters are all so interesting and full. Starting with Huey, Dewey, and Louie, you get a cool feel for them right off the bat. I like that each of these characters are different from each other. They are all troublemakers in their own right, and I was worried that they would change them up so one of them would be the troublemaker,

‘DuckTales’ Review: Nostalgic, Adventure-Filled Reboot Is All It’s Quacked Up to Be

‘DuckTales’ Review: Nostalgic, Adventure-Filled Reboot Is All It’s Quacked Up to Be
DuckTales” makes its triumphant return to TV in a Disney Xd movie, titled “Woo-Oo!,” on Saturday that sets the bar high during this age of reboots and revivals.

In the TV landscape filled with comic book adaptations featuring superheroes, zombies or spies, it’s easy to forget that the much-beloved “DuckTales” also hailed from ink and paper. It’s this source material, however, that gave the series its storytelling heft and visual vibrancy, an irresistible combination that has contributed to the original series’ success and nostalgic longevity. This was not some treacly, preachy after-school fare, but rather zippy escapism that built in serialized installments.

Fortunately, the reboot of the series keeps all of those important original hallmarks. “American Idol” alum Felicia Barton re-recorded the signature theme song but keeps its sense of fun and excitement intact. The animation
