First Full Look At Ryan Reynolds In Costume As Deadpool

27 March 2015 9:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Taking to his personal Twitter account earlier this morning, Ryan Reynolds lifted the curtain on the first official look at his Deadpool costume in typical fashion.

Posing in a way that would make Rose DeWitt Bukater proud, the photo sees Reynolds don the superhero guise for a rather intimate still. Here’s what the actor had to share.

For the film, Reynolds will play the part of Wade Wilson, Marvel’s idiosyncratic anti-hero that earns his title as the Merc with a Mouth for his quirky one-liners and devastating physical abilities. The project has flirted with development for some time, particularly after the actor’s cameo in the otherwise poor X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but it was the tidal wave of support that rose to the fore following the release of last year’s excellent test footage. »

X-Men: Apocalypse To Be Jennifer Lawrence’s Last Film As Mystique

23 March 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We’ve long heard that next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse will round out the prequel trilogy that began with First Class in 2011, and now we’re starting to see some signs that that may very well be the case.

Following Nicholas Hoult’s comments that Apocalypse may be his last turn as Hank McCoy/Beast (unless he extends his contract), Jennifer Lawrence has announced that 2016 will mark the last time she dons the blue body makeup of shape-shifting femme fatale Mystique.

Lawrence broke the news to MTV recently during the red carpet premiere for her new film Serena, saying:

“It is my last one, actually.”

X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner once expressed interest in giving Mystique – who’s appeared in five of the seven installments – her own spinoff film, but with Lawrence’s departure from the role, I think it’s safe to assume that that’s not going to happen anytime soon. »

‘Sons of Soldiers’ Football Movie in the Works with Richard Donner (Exclusive)

20 February 2015 7:05 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Richard Donner, Derek Hoffman, Bobby Sabelhaus and John Zaozirny are developing drama “Sons of Soldiers,” centering on a high school football team at Fort Campbell, Ky., and the impact of the players’ parents serving in the military.

“For us, this is a project that goes beyond the traditional sports drama, to explore the sacrifices that not only soldiers make, but also their spouses and children,” Sabelhaus told Variety.

“This is about the wives and children who are on the other end of all those phone calls we see in films like ‘American Sniper,'” he added. “Though they’re not on a battlefield, they make massive sacrifices as well, going weeks without knowing where their father or mother, husband or wife are.”

The producers have obtained the life rights to Shawn Berner, who successfully coached the Fort Campbell Falcons for more than a decade. They have also hired screenwriter Robert Eisele, »

Gina Carano Joins Ryan Reynolds For Deadpool

13 February 2015 1:25 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Is it just us, or is Fox’s Deadpool standalone movie turning into a pretty star-studded affair? Alongside leading man Ryan Reynolds, comedy sidekick T.J. Miller and potential villain Ed Skrein, we’re now hearing that Haywire star Gina Carano has joined the movie.

The former Mma star is slated to play Angel Dust. In the Marvel comic storylines, the outlet reports that she “was part of an underground mutant group known as the Morlocks.” While she’s not a household name comic book staple, she might be by this time next year. With Carano in her stride at the moment, her transition to a comic caper ought to be a sight to behold and will no doubt make a solid impression.

How Marvel went from bankruptcy to billions

12 February 2015 9:17 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In less than 20 years, Marvel has risen from bankruptcy to multi-billion-dollar business. Ryan charts its rise and rise...

Just about every great comic book story has a darkest hour moment: a point in the tale where all seems lost. The heroes are on their knees, the city's a smouldering ruin and the villains are closing in for the kill. For Marvel, its darkest hour came in the winter of 1996.

A company that had grown in stature throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s thanks to the often stunning art and storytelling in such comics as Fantastic Four and The Amazing Spider-Man, Marvel's financial success had reached a peak by the early 90s. But then a series of bursting financial bubbles and questionable business deals saw Marvel's stock value collapse; shares once worth $35.75 each in 1993 had sunk to $2.375 three years later. An ugly fight between a group of very rich investors followed, »

'Deadpool' Will Shoot in Vancouver This March

19 January 2015 10:12 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, 20th Century Fox finalized their deal with actor Ryan Reynolds to return as Deadpool, reprising his role from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, with shooting scheduled to begin this March. Today, GlobeNews.ca reports that the production will shoot in Ryan Reynolds' hometown of Vancouver starting in late March. The movie has booked two months at Vancouver's North Shore Studios, although it isn't known if the production will shoot in any other locations around the city. Just one month after Deadpool starts shooting, the studio's other upcoming superhero adventure, X-Men: Apocalypse, will begin production on the other side of Canada, in Montreal.

After years of speculation, 20th Century Fox finally announced in September that they are moving forward with Deadpool, handing out a February 12, 2016 release date for the comic book adaptation. That news came just a few months after test footage leaked earlier that summer, which was received positively by the fans. »
