Bad Ass. Smart Ass. Great Ass. Wade Wilson shows his better side in a new international poster for Deadpool. Even with a mask on, Ryan Reynolds manages to pull a smug, coy face as he parades around in his little girly pink and black backpack, on his way to murder the bad guys. If you always wanted a better look at the Merc with a Mouth's fine assetts, here's your front row view.
Last week, Ryan Reynolds released a hilarious viral video announcing his appearance this week at the Sao Paulo Comic Con. The 20th Century Fox panel happens on Friday, December 4. It isn't known what 20th Century Fox plans to show fans, but it could be a new trailer. Producer Simon Kinberg revealed earlier in November that a new Deadpool trailer is arriving this month. The trailer may debut in Brazil first, before arriving online. Simon Kinberg described the new footage as "pretty awesome, »
Simon Kinberg, the producer and writer of the most recent X-Men movies, including the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, has given an update on Hugh Jackman‘s final Wolverine film, which is set to get going in 2016 (for a 2017 release) under the watchful eye of director James Mangold.
The film will heavily feature Patrick Stewart‘s Professor X, and Kinberg has been spilling the beans to Collider about the state of the project over at 20th Century Fox.
Here’s what he had to say:
“We’re pretty close to a script that everyone’s excited about, and I don’t know when the start date is, but we won’t start until it’s ready to shoot. What Hugh said to you »
- Paul Heath
With X-Men: Apocalypse set to wrap up that particular trilogy and Hugh Jackman looking set to bid farewell to Wolverine, Fox are looking for different ways to keep the franchise going. That obviously includes solo outings for characters like Deadpool and Gambit, but looking ahead a little further than that, Josh Boone’s New Mutants is also on the way.
We have no idea about the approach being taken for that release, but producer Simon Kinberg did offer an update on where things currently stand with it in a recent interview:
“I don’t know what the production plan is. Like with all of these things, we have to get the script right. That’s the most important part of it, and they’re just working on the first draft now, but the hope is that we’ll shoot it soon. And Josh has been game with this and gave »

Once Rupert Wyatt vacated the director’s chair a couple of months back, it left 20th Century Fox scrambling to find a suitable replacement for its long-gestating X-Men offshoot Gambit, and today The Hollywood Reporter has revealed who will be taking the reins.

Though his place at the helm is yet to be formally confirmed, Liman has struck up a financially-sound working relationship with Fox in recent times, with Mr. & Mrs. Smith and Jumper earning sizeable chunks at the box office. Moreover, the filmmaker clearly has the support of Channing Tatum – still attached to topline the feature as the card-throwing mutant, despite production setbacks – who reportedly courted Liman for the gig a mere few weeks ago. »

Tatum will play the fan-favorite Marvel Comics character, a New Orleans-born mutant who can manipulate kinetic energy. Lea Seydoux is also onboard as the female lead - the guild of assassins leader Bella Donna Boudreaux.
The film opens in cinemas October 7th next year.

If all goes according to plan, 20th Century Fox will release three vastly different movies set within the X-Men universe next year, Deadpool (February 12, 2016), X-Men: Apocalypse (May 27, 2016) and Gambit (October 7, 2016). Both Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse are in post-production, but Gambit hasn't started shooting yet, since director Rupert Wyatt backed out of the project last month. Today we have a new report from Heroic Hollywood, which claims the studio has three contenders to replace Rupert Wyatt, Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow), Shane Black (Iron Man 3) and Joe Cornish (Attack the Block).
Of this trio of contenders, only Shane Black has experience directing in the superhero movie genre, having helmed Marvel's Iron Man 3. Joe Cornish did receive a story and screenplay credit for Marvel's Ant-Man, and he has been up for a number of high-profile directorial gigs such as Kong: Skull Island, but he hasn't directed a feature since his critically-acclaimed debut, »
Last week's reveal of not one but two "X-Men" related live-action TV series in the works - Fox's "Hellfire" and FX's "Legion" - caught many off guard. A new interview by TV Insider with "Fargo" series producer Noah Hawley, who is also an executive producer on "Legion," has now revealed some more details about that series.
Hawley says plans for the show have been in the works for some time and were held up due to legal issues: "Fox has rights to make movies and sort of tacitly the rights to do TV, but they've never done it before so they had to work out all the details."
Hawley confirms that "X-Men" film series producers Bryan Singer and Lauren Shuler Donner were the ones who pitched the idea for the series to Fox Networks Group chairman/CEO Peter Rice. According to Hawley, it sounds like he essentially has a Lot »

Last week, Marvel announced two new TV shows that have roots in the X-Men comics, FX's Legion and Fox's Hellfire. Surprisingly, the official announcements did not make any reference to X-Men, even though both shows will be produced by Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner, who have spearheaded the beloved mutant movie franchise. TV Insider caught up with Legion series creator Noah Hawley, who confirmed that his show will not be immediately connected to the beloved movie universe.
"It's conceived more as a standalone. I don't want to say too much more about it on that level, but certainly it's not constructed as a back-door anything. It's more just that there's a story that I want to explore that has to fit into that larger universe, which is exciting. It's interesting; I do think that the show needs to stand on its own two feet. The people who »
Earlier this week it was announced that Fox has partnered up with Marvel Television for two X-Men-themed TV series in Legion and Hellfire, and now producer Noah Hawley (Fargo) has been speaking to TV Insider about the former, revealing how the deal came about, and what appeals to him about the project.
“It’s been in the works for a long time,” states Hawley. “Some of that was Marvel dealmaking process. Fox has rights to make movies and sort of tacitly the rights to do TV, but they’ve never done it before so they had to work out all the details. The reality is it was literally between Season 1 and Season 2 of Fargo that we came up with it. It’s been this whole time of trying to work all of that other stuff out. It came out of FX and [Fox Networks Group chairman/CEO] Peter Rice, who had greenlit the first X-Men »

20th Century Fox Television, FX Networks, & Marvel Entertainment made headlines earlier this week when they announced the production of two X-Men universe television series: Legion, which will introduce David Haller, & Hellfire, which will be set in the 1960s and follow The Hellfire Club. Immediately following the announcement, a variety of rumors began to circulate about how/why Marvel and Fox were striking up this particular deal, but nothing fruitful was produced (although it should probably be noted that Marvel Studios' current president Kevin Feige received his start in the movie business from Lauren Shuler Donner on the first X-Men film) and shortly therafter, every rumor was debunked when both studios came out and denied any ulterior motive behind their new partnership. A new interview with Noah Hawley, who will write the pilot episode for Legion and will also serve as one of the show's executive producers, has seemingly confirmed the fact. »
Earlier today Marvel announced some pretty big news. They are working with two television networks to bring us Legion and Hellfire (working title).
FX ordered a pilot episode of Legion to be produced on their network. I would have hoped that they would have ordered a full season knowing how well Marvel has done on both TV and in film but hey, it’s a start.
The Legion pilot will be introducing David Haller who the doctors have diagnosed with schizophrenia but these voices and visions may be more real than first thought.
Legion is just the sort of ambitious story that Noah excels at. His adaption of Fargo for television was one of the most acclaimed television events in recent memory. It’s also an honor to partner with Marvel on »

This marks Marvel’s second huge rights negotiation this year, after they previously announced that Sony had finally decided to share the cinematic rights to Spider-Man.
