The New Year is just now starting to feel for real. Folks are remembering to write 2016 on the check they sign and, who knows, maybe even starting to pay attention to the upcoming election season. Well, maybe. But before we get too serious about life let us savor some silliness. Deadpool is a film about a seriously messed up dude named Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds). He was a soldier. Then he was a mercenary. Eventually he becomes the superhero called Deadpool – beloved by geekdom the world over. This film is his origin story.
Deadpool was written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, best known for Zombieland (2009), so they know the funny. It is based on the popular comic character work created by Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicleza. Tim Miller makes his feature film directorial debut here.

How did Deadpool screenwriters and producers cut $7 million from the budget in 48 hours? Is there a chance that Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick could tackle an X-Force movie? What does Betty White think of Deadpool? Are there any stories in here that aren’t tied to Deadpool? All that and more in this edition […]

Armed with a fairly limited budget (for a superhero blockbusters, anyway), Deadpool is a rather small scaled film, but it does provide some serious antagonists for its titular character in the form of Ed Skrein.s Ajax and Gina Carano.s Angel Dust. Together they are a formidable force to face against for the Merc With The Mouth, but there were actually early drafts of the scripts that had a larger crew of baddies . including the trio of Wyre, Garrison Kane, and Sluggo. I learned about this special triumvirate while recently interviewing Deadpool screenwriters/producers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Discussing a need to make the script tighter both for the story and due to the budget, the filmmakers explained that Ajax originally had a much bigger crew than what we see in the finished cut of the movie. Said Reese, We consolidated, in the first draft, Ajax has really »
Deadpool hits theaters tomorrow (this evening in some areas), but the Merc with the Mouth's big screen follow-up is already being planned. Earlier this week, it was reported that 20th Century Fox greenlit Deadpool 2. No details have been provided about what the sequel will be about (though Cable is rumored to appear), but if the early reviews of the first movie are any indication, then it will be most welcomed. Conversely, Fox.s Fantastic Four reboot failed to impress last year, resulting in the studio taking away Fantastic Four 2.s 2017 release date. Does that mean Deadpool 2 might take that coveted spot? Not if the writers have their way. Deadpool scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are returning to pen the sequel, but when asked by HeyUGuys whether the sequel might take Fantastic Four 2.s place on June 9, 2017, Reese said they.d like as much time to work on it as »
Deadpool is not even out yet and according to The Hollywood Reporter Fox are already working on the sequel. Here’s what we might know so far. According to the same The Hollywood Reporter, Fox hired Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to write Deadpool 2, these being the same guys behind Zombieland and Deadpool. While THR might say […]

Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool opened in seven international markets yesterday and debuted to the impressive tune of $12 million. Reynolds previously commented on the budget for Deadpool, stating that Tim Miller made the film on what would be considered the 'c#c@i%e budget' for the bigger superhero films. Case in point, Exhibitor Relations is reporting that Deadpool had a production budget of $58 million. Opening tomorrow, Deadpool is on track for a $55+ million weekened in the U.S. Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life. The film is directed by Tim Miller, with a »
Between confirmation of a sequel hatching over at Fox and Ryan Reynold’s labelling X-Force a priority, it’s been a busy fortnight in the Deadpool universe – and that’s before the Merc With a Mouth has his theatrical bow in North America tomorrow.
In fact, had things panned out differently before Tim Miller arrived at a final cut, Kane of X-Force may have featured in the director’s standalone flick. But rather than ruminating on what could have been, screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are keen to push ahead and expand the scope of Fox’s budding new universe.

Word comes by way of HeyUGuys, where Reese and Wernick reaffirmed plans to include Cable in the Deadpool sequel.
“Yes, absolutely. I think those are characters who are near and dear to Deadpool fan’s hearts and characters we would like to explore down »

Ryan Reynolds knows a thing or two about comic book movies. His first flirtation with the medium was Blade: Trinity in 2004, by which point the Canadian actor had established himself as movie star thanks to a breakthrough turn in National Lampoon’s Van Wilder.
It was his role in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine that first put Deadpool on his docket. The Marvel Comics character, created in 1991 by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld, made an appearance at that film’s finale that was supposed to set up a standalone movie, but given his comic book alter ego was dubbed “The Merc with a Mouth,” it was a surprise to fans that his mouth was sewn shut for his climactic battle with Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine.

"Deadpool" is looking like it'll be a big smash hit this weekend, to the point that 20th Century Fox has already greenlit a sequel. And while the movie is positioned as the anti-superhero movie that stands apart from the crowd, there's a strong part of it that wants to be part of the X-Men world, and the screenwriters of "Deadpool" and the sequel, Rhett Reese and Paul Werick, suggest as much in their chat with Yahoo. "We haven’t seen 'X-Men: Apocalypse.' We don’t know what’s coming. [Simon Kinberg] knows what’s coming, and he also knows what’s the plan after 'Apocalypse.' It’s much easier for us to figure out how to plug X-Men into Deadpool’s universe than to figure out how to plug Deadpool into other universes. And that will be something that probably collectively, if we succeed, we’ll all come together on, »

Judao.com from Brazil confirms reports from various outlets that there is a second post-credits scene for "Deadpool." There's the one that Mario and Kellvin were treated to when they saw the film last week and refuse to spoil for us, and there's another which will serve as an indication that a sequel is on the way. We've already heard that there'll be "Deadpool 2" with actor Ryan Reynolds, screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick and director Tim Miller all expected to return, and the alternate teaser will seemingly make that clear for folks who don't read sites like this one.
Screenwriters Rheese and Wernick were recently interviewed by HeyUGuys about the prospect of fast-tracking a sequel in which Wernick said, "Look, »

In a chat with Hey U Guys, the writers of Fox's upcoming X-Men Universe film, Deadpool, opened up a bit about their work on the hotly anticipated flick. It opens on Friday, but that's after nearly seven years of work on it to make it a reality. The early buzz for the film is very strong, and it looks like those years may have led to a movie that's going to bear a lot of fruit in the way of sequels and even an X-force movie. While everyone's very excited about the project now, the writers spoke candidly about how they walked into the project without even having heard of Deadpool before.
Here are comments, related to that, from both writers:

While Deadpool hasn.t even been released yet, the reviews have been overwhelmingly positive and excitement for the film is bubbling over among fans. The sequel has already been greenlit because success is virtually guaranteed. So what are the writers going to do to top the first film? Apparently, what they really want to do is have somebody beat the crap out of Deadpool. It likely won.t work however, as there are things that even the merc with a mouth.s swords can.t cut through. In this case, those things are studio contracts and red tape. The men behind the screenplay for Deadpool, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, sat down with HeyUGuys and talked about who they would love to pull out of the Marvel catalog to pair up with Deadpool. Reese has an idea that we would love to see, unfortunately it doesn.t work because the »

Last week, the first critics screenings were held for 20th Century Fox's Deadpool, which included one post-credit scene. Earlier this week, it was confirmed that there are actually two post-credits scenes, with the second one held back for the general release on February 12. Today we have a new report from Comic Book Movie, which claims to have details about the second post-credits scene. There will be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
This report claims that the scene sets up Cable, the iconic leader of the X-Force team, who will be featured in the upcoming sequel. 20th Century Fox has already green lit Deadpool 2, with producer Simon Kinberg teasing last year that Cable may be included in the follow-up. This latest report comes just days after original Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were confirmed to already be working on the new script. While director »
It’s fair to say that Fox’s latest Marvel endeavour Deadpool, is a real writer’s production. Where other films in the McU rely on big set pieces and remarkable special effects, with this comedic, irreverent picture, it’s all about the screenplay, as a film that ridicules and parodies the archetypal comic book production. So needless to

HeyUGuys recently had the chance to catch up with Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to talk about the movie, and they managed to get some very interesting details on the sequel. Unfortunately, the interview took place before the news of a follow-up hit, but it doesn't sound as if they'll be able to get the screenplay finished in time for it to be released in the slot currently held by Fantastic Four 2. "We hope that it doesn’t take Fantastic Four’s release date because that’s awfully, awfully soon," Reese confessed. "We like to take our time, we’re lazy screenwriters." Wernick however added that they're at least open to the idea, but next June definitely feels like a rush. "Look, that’s entirely above our heads, but we’ll write the very best screenplay we can write if we’re fortunate enough to get that sequel, »
Join Oli and Luke for this very special Deadpool episode – featuring an interview with the movie’s writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick and a review of the movie, which is out in cinemas now. Was the movie any good? How do the chaps think it’ll perform at the box office? And, most importantly, what was the post-credits sequence?! (Spoilers for that last one, obviously).
All that, and the incredibly short new segment Scooperhero News (recording equipment troubles meant that 40 minutes of chat have disappeared into the ether) breaking down the Superbowl commercial spot for Captain America: Civil War.
There was more but, like we said, Damn Recording Equipment.

As we specifically wrote about earlier this week, part of the charm in director Tim Miller's Deadpool is the fact that it rights some previous wrongs of the X-Men franchise, specifically by making characters like the titular Merc With The Mouth and Colossus much more like their comic book counterparts. What's notable, however, is that the film also simultaneously introduces a brand new mutant, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and completely changes her power set. Before you raise your pitchforks and torches in anger, however, know that writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick had some very good reasons for the choice: specifically that her new abilities are much more in-sync with her name, and the fact that she has a general lack of presence in Marvel Comics history. I had the chance to chat with the screenwriters late last week, and it was while discussing Negasonic Teenage Warhead as a »
When I saw Deadpool at a press screening last week, I was expecting to like it. What I wasn’t expecting was to absolutely love it, wholly and fully. Deadpool is a character I’m indifferent to, but the way he was brought to the screen just made me fall in love with the so called Merc with a Mouth. The antihero is finally getting his own film after star Ryan Reynolds and fans of the character basically demanded it, along with test footage leaking and starting a bit of a frenzy. Well, the end result is an absolute blast. Not only is it easily the best film of the year so far, it’s also one of the best comic book adaptation/superhero movies to date. It opens on Friday and it’s an absolute must see. Trust me folks, you’ve never seen anything like it. The flick »

Deadpool has been a long time coming, but with so much anticipation surrounding this long delayed adaptation, it's always been hard to say whether or not the movie would be able to live up to the hype and its A+ marketing campaign. Well, it most definitely does, and thanks to Ryan Reynolds, Tim Miller, Rhett Reese, and Paul Wernick, the Merc With the Mouth finally gets the movie he deserves. That doesn't mean Deadpool is a perfect comic book adaptation of course. All in all, it delivers a fairly standard superhero origin story which, in fairness, does stick to the source material (making it hard to complain too much about that when so many others movies have gone in a different direction and completely botched their respective superhero's early days). However, the movie also approaches the way it's told in a unique enough way to keep you interested and you'll »
