Deadpool. My favouroite character in all the Marvel universe. A character I honestly never thought would ever get a 18-rated action movie in a million years. But it is; and I couldn’t be more excited! Forget the abomination that was the Deadpool of X-Men Origins: Wolverine (also played by Ryan Reynolds), This is the Deadpool that audiences deserve, the comics fans want…
For those unaware of the character, here’s his bio:
Deadpool is a disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary with the superhuman ability of an accelerated healing factor. He is known as the “Merc with a Mouth” because of his talkative nature and tendency to break the fourth wall, which is used by writers to humorous effect. Deadpool was depicted as a supervillain when he made his first appearance in The New Mutants and later in issues of X-Force, but has since evolved into the role of an antihero. »

Following three gorgeous new images for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Empire is also debuting three never-before-seen photos from Deadpool. One of the photos arrived yesterday, which shows Wade Wilson ready for a sword fight. Today, we get a high-res look at his Katanas Bea and Arthur. Also along for the ride are Brianna Hildebrand as X-Men character Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Morena Baccarin as the Merc's love interest Copycat.
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.
Just before Comic-Con started last week, Entertainment Weekly debuted new photos from Deadpool, which gave us a look at the title character himself (Ryan Reynolds), Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Copycat (Morena Baccarin), Weasel (T.J. Miller), Ajax (Ed Skrein) and Angel Dust (Gina Carano). Now that the Con has come and gone, 20th Century Fox has released high-resolution versions of these images. The panel and the trailer that was released last week was one of the big hits of the con, with Deadpool riding a wave of positive buzz that should carry it forward to the February 12, 2016 release.

After some footage of Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool shooting thugs, cracking jokes, and doing a little dance to Gwen Stefani’s “Hollaback Girl” leaked at last year’s San Diego Comic Con, fan anticipation has increased for Deadpool, which got an official release date and a supporting cast in the past year.
For those not in the know, Deadpool is a mercenary character created by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld in an New Mutants issue as a villainous parody of DC Comics’ Deathstroke. (Wade Wilson, Slade Wilson, see what they did there.) Over the past two decades, Deadpool has become a fan favorite character thanks to work by writers like Joe Kelly, Gail Simone, Daniel Way, and most recently Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn, who gave him a daughter and an even sadder backstory in the 2013 “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” arc. He has picked up a wide variety »

Ryan Reynolds's Deadpool is the film we never thought we'd see. 20th Century Fox kept the X-Men spinoff in limbo for years, and after his less than auspicious on-screen debut (more on that below), things didn't look good for Marvel Comics' 'Merc with a Mouth'.
More fool us. And when the first trailer debuted at San Diego Comic-Con 2015, it was so well received that they played it twice.
Guess where I'm hiding the chimichanga, and win!

We live in hope, and until it arrives next year, here's everything we know about the former Green Lantern's comic book movie:
Deadpool will be released on February 12, 2016.
X-Men: Origins will be swept under the carpet
As we mentioned, part of the problem with bringing Deadpool to the big screen was the royal mess Fox made of his first appearance. »
If you didn’t attend this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, that means you missed out on all the cool new trailers for tomorrow’s hottest cinematic properties (mostly from DC Comics this year). This also means you’re probably searching YouTube for leaked versions of all the awesomeness you didn’t get to experience yourself, squinting intently just to make out every blurry detail some dude’s iPhone couldn’t capture.
Well, if that’s a case, here’s another leaked trailer worth your strained vision!
The cast and crew of Deadpool took to San Diego this year to promote their upcoming superhero flick, and brought a Badass first trailer that hit the West Coast so hard, tremors could be felt up and down California (unconfirmed). But if you’ve somehow avoided all the Deadpool frenzy these last few years, here’s a quick recap: Ryan Reynolds is playing the Merc With A Mouth, »

Heading into Comic-Con this week, there were several clues that the 20th Century Fox Hall H panel would include Deadpool. Rob Liefeld, who created the comic book series, revealed on his social media platforms that he was holding a scavenger hunt, hiding original sketches of The Merc With the Mouth all around San Diego. And just a few days ago, Ryan Reynolds himself posted a photo of Deadpool trying to hitch a ride to Sdcc. Sure enough, Deadpool was featured as the fourth movie in 20th Century Fox's five-film presentation, which also included The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Victor Frankenstein, Fantastic Four and the closing presentation X-Men: Apocalypse. After a hilarious opening sequence, Ryan Reynolds took the stage, starting off by addressing the fact that the footage leaked from Hall H last year is largely what got the movie green lit.

Arriving in cinemas next February is the long, long-mooted X-Men spin-off Deadpool, which sees Ryan Reynolds reprising the role he took on in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Tim Miller is directing the film, and the movie also features Ed Skrein, Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano and Brianna Hildebrand.
Deadpool is expected to be unveiled to some degree at San Diego Comic-Con, but ahead of that, 20th Century Fox has firstly released a new image from the film. Let's start with that...
Furthermore, the film's producer, Simon Kinberg, has removed any residual doubt over just what kind of rating the Deadpool team are targeting. "Deadpool is hard R", he told EW. "It's graphic. Nothing is taboo. You either commit to a truly outrageous boundary-pushing kind of movie or you don't". Tim Miller added the film was "far away »
Not to be outdone by his costumed comic book counterparts appearing all over the net today, Deadpool stars front and center in a new image from the Ryan Reynolds-starrer. It finds the Merc with a Mouth standing amidst some general chaos - a flipped car, a flailing pedestrian, Deadpool poised with guns drawn. It's a pretty standard action shot as far as these movies go, and lacks the humorous touch of what has been an excellent marketing campaign for the mercenary movie so far. That being said, Comic-Con is almost upon us and this image is likely to be just the tip of the iceberg for the 20th Century Fox property's push as it rolls out over the next six months or so. And if the film's rating was still in question, Deadpool producer Simon Kinberg answers it beautifully: “Deadpool is a hard R. It’s graphic. Nothing is taboo. »

Not even a movie as bad as X-Men Origins: Wolverine could tarnish fans love for Marvel Comic’s Deadpool, and the fact that only Ryan Reynolds could bring the wonderfully irreverent Merc with a Mouth. After an insanely long time in Development Hell, production finally began in March, and Reynolds has been keeping us up to speed, through the medium of Twitter, on the production. Now, filming has come to an end, and Reynolds has again marked the occasion, this time with a great callback to The Shawshank Redemption. #Deadpool has been a privilege to make. And we got to make this film because of you. Gonna eat a samich now. #wrapped pic.twitter.com/AMW68HD2BI — Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) May 29, 2015 With director Tim Miller working from a script by Zombieland scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, Deadpool hits cinemas February 12th 2016. »

I’ve been following Deadpool’s development for so long that part of me still has trouble believing it exists, and exists with the team we wanted: Ryan Reynolds, director Tim Miller, and from a screenplay by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Filming has now wrapped on Deadpool, and Reynolds has sent out a tweet to mark the occasion with this image: [caption id="attachment_465463" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Image via Ryan Reynolds[/caption] It would be very Deadpool to put “Brooks Was Here…So was Deadpool”, but I’m willing to meet the character halfway on his graffiti. Reynolds has been sharing photos throughout filming, and I’ll be curious to see if he keeps checking in with fans, or if he’ll be too busy with other projects. Usually, I don’t care for being inundated with marketing, but I’m willing to make an exception for Deadpool. Deadpool opens February 12, 2016, and »

The image below (which we've had to split into two unfortunately) is featured in this month's edition of Empire Magazine, and as you can see, it gives us yet another great look at Ryan Reynolds in costume as Deadpool. This hopefully means Empire will have a cover story on the movie in an upcoming issue as we still don't know a huge amount about the movie despite a ton of set photos finding their way online recently. Ant-Man took this month's cover, and you can see that Here. Written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, Deadpool is directed by Tim Miller and set to be released on February 12th, 2016.

There are very, very few times we would ever even consider posting anything from "Extra", but this is one of those times. "Extra" host Mario Lopez traveled up to Vancouver to visit the set of the Deadpool movie, which is currently filming, and sat down for a one-on-one chat with star Ryan Reynolds. Yes, this sounds cheesy, but because it's Deadpool and he breaks the fourth wall and messes around with everyone, there's some fun elements to this otherwise bland "Extra" segment. It's also cool to see Ryan so excited to be talking about finally making an R-rated Deadpool movie. I'm glad they're embracing the character in all his glory. Deadpool is directed by visual effects veteran Tim Miller, making his feature directing debut, with a script from Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Ryan Reynolds reprises the titular character he originated in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a disfigured and »

Ryan Reynolds has taken to Instagram to reveal a brand new image from Deadpool. It doesn't reveal too much about the movie and is a little less humurous than previous efforts, but that makes it no less awesome! The photo was clearly taken when they were shooting on that overpass in Vancouver, and this is a really fantastic shot of the popular Marvel character in action. Stuck the landing. With my mouth.

Ryan Reynolds is still in his hometown of Vancouver shooting his superhero adaptation Deadpool, which is currently slated for release on February 12, 2016. Unlike the first few weeks of shooting, we haven't seen too many photos and videos from the set lately, but for those craving a new look at the Merc With the Mouth, Ryan Reynolds has you covered. The actor tweeted out a new photo in celebration of today's Mother's Day holiday, where Deadpool is seen actually delivering a baby. Is there anything this superhero can't do?

Remember New Coke? If you do, the ’80s called and they want their jokes back. But as a reminder, in April of 1985, just over 30 years ago this week, Coca-Cola, one of the longest surviving American companies who had successfully dominated the market with a time-tested product, had decided that to stave off the rise of Pepsi in the Cola wars, they would rebrand their classic fizzy drink to New Coke. New Coke hit the shelves April 23, and though the sweeter flavor won out in blind taste tests, human psychology practically dictates that it’s not the product that’s inside the can but the label that’s outside the can that most determines a person’s liking. The product rollout was a huge blunder, and Coca-Cola eventually reverted to Coke Classic.
If you thought that sounds like it could make a fascinating documentary, or perhaps an interesting comedy, then you’re in luck. »

Deadpool writers have already lined up their next project. Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, the genius scribes behind the highly anticipated Deadpool, have recently signed up to write a movie about the disastrous story of New Coke. According to Deadline, writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese are moving from the X-Men spin-off movie Deadpool to the upcoming movie based on the story of Coca-Cola.s New Coke flop. They also will put their own money behind the film. The movie, which will be based on Thomas Oliver's book The Real Coke, The Real Story, will reportedly be a period piece set during the .80s and explore the perceived threat that No. 2 rival Pepsi presented after a successful marketing campaign called the "Pepsi Challenge," particularly Coca-Cola.s reaction. Thomas Oliver is the business reporter from the Atlanta Journal Constitution who covered the introduction of New Coke into the market and »
The Real Coke
"Zombieland" and "Deadpool" scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese are reportedly penning a feature about the disastrous launch of New Coke thirty years ago. The drink attempted to adjust classic Coke's secret formula for a younger generation - it performed so badly it threatened the original soft drink's market leadership.
The scribes have optioned the Thomas Oliver book "The Real Coke, The Real Story" and will pen this 1980s period piece which will also deal with how No. 2 rival Pepsi launched the 'Pepsi Challenge' that led to corporate panic at Coke. [Source: Deadline]
The Dukes Of Oxy
Angel Elgort is being lined up to star in a film version about the Rolling Stone article "Dukes Of Oxy" at New Line. The article deals with a pair of teen high school wrestlers from Florida who built a multimillion-dollar business smuggling OxyContin and other painkillers.

The writers of the fan favourite Zombieland and the now-shooting Deadpool are to tackle something completely different for their next project. Duo Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick will pen a movie that revolves around the Coca-Cola launch of ‘New Coke’ in the 1980s.
The planned project will revolved around the famous drinks company’s attempt to relaunch the brand in 1985 with a brand new, improved taste ‘for a new generation,’ rather than stick to its market leading secret formula that it produced since its launch nearly 100 years before. It’s safe to say said new launch didn’t go down well with Coke drinkers.
According to Deadline, Wernick and Reese have used their own cash to option Thomas Oliver’s book The Real Coke, The Real Story, the property on which their screenplay will be based.
The announcement comes just days after the 30th anniversary of the disasterous marketing event. »
