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.

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, »

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 »
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. Starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein, Gina Carano, and Brianna Hildebrand, Deadpool is set to be released on February 12th, 2016. Are you looking forward to it? »

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 »

Ryan Reynolds‘ antihero in “Deadpool” isn’t the only character in the new film who kills comic book stereotypes: Morena Baccarin‘s Vanessa is a prostitute, strip-club waitress, and different kind of subversive hero. Women have come a long way in Marvel films, from the early days of Kirsten Dunst‘s distressed starlet Mary Jane in “Spider-Man” to Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Stark Industries CEO Pepper Potts in the “Iron Man” franchise. Baccarin, star of “Gotham” and earlier seasons of “Homeland,” is Deadpool’s partner in a surprisingly tender love story, playing a sex worker who isn’t a broken woman. »

Mostly ignored in the first film, it looks like the upcoming sequel to "Deadpool" could incorporate a clearer nod to the comedic character's pansexuality.
Variety has spoken with both writer Rhett Reese and actor Ryan Reynolds who indicate that they are open to exploring the character's flexible sexuality - a well-known element of the character in the comics - in the sequels.
Asked about the possibility of the character getting an onscreen male love interest or fling, Reynolds says: "I love that about Deadpool. I love that he can break any boundary. In the future, I hope we get to do that more. I certainly wouldn't be the guy standing in the way of that. That would be great."
In the first film a few references are made to it, from several amusing moments in a sex montage to a joke at a certain clawed mutant's expense, but otherwise it »

It may just be opening in cinemas this week, but Zavvi is already taking pre-orders on an exclusive, limited edition steelbook for Deadpool. It’s limited to just 4000 copies, so if you want one, you had best move fast…

It looks like Fox is confident that it has a hit on its hands with Deadpool, as The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that the studio has tapped screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to start working on a script for a sequel, which already has the green light.
Directed Tim Miller is yet to officially sign on for the sequel, although THR is suggesting that Fox is keen to keep the creative team intact for Ryan Reynolds’ second solo outing as the Merc with a Mouth.

Meanwhile, Comic Book has wasted no time in confirming that Cable will feature in the sequel. Given the timing of the report I’m inclined to chalk it down to an ‘Educated Guess‘ rather than actual confirmation; Miller did tell Empire back in July that, “If we don’t put Cable in Deadpool 2 I think we »

With just days remaining until 20th Century Fox unleashed Deadpool in theaters, the studio is already doubling down by putting a sequel into development. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the studio has already given the green light for Deadpool 2 to move forward, with original Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick already working on the script. While director Tim Miller hasn't officially signed on for the follow-up, this report claims the studio wants to keep the original creative team intact.
Way back in August, a report surfaced that 20th Century Fox was considering dropping a sequel to the much-maligned Fantastic Four in favor of Deadpool 2, but the studio didn't confirm that report. Then just a month later, producer Simon Kinberg teased that talks for the follow-up were already under way with 20th Century Fox, while hinting that Cable, the iconic leader of the X-Force comic book series, may make an »
Deadpool is expected to do big business (especially for an R-rated superhero movie) when it hits theaters this weekend, and analysts have predicted a very successful box office run overall – so it was probably only a matter of time before we got word on a sequel. And according to THR, that time is now.
The trade reports that the film’s writing team of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are currently at work on the script for the sequel, and though director Tim Miller hasn’t officially signed on to return just yet, the studio is “intent on keeping the creative team together.”

That means, of course, that Ryan Reynolds is also expected to reprise the lead role of the Merc With a Mouth. He did recently say that he’d happily play the character forever, after all, so there’s no reason to think »

Morena Baccarin is ready to give birth. Like. Right. Now. "My water could break right now," the actress told E! News last night at a special fan screening of her new flick Deadpool in New York City. In fact, walking a red carpet wasn't her idea of fun. Baccarin admitted she felt "like crap" at the event. "I want to sleep all day and not be in a dress and heels," she said. Baccarin is expecting her first child with boyfriend Benjamin McKenzie, who was by her side for Deadpool screening. No word on what McKenzie thinks of Baccarin's very naughty sex sequence in the movie with hot as heck Ryan Reynolds. "It was a sex montage. We banged »
With Deadpool set to open in the UK tomorrow and in the States on Friday, Ryan Reynolds is out on the press tour for the film, and during an interview with Filmstarts, the actor was asked about trivia on IMDb claiming that the film’s incarnation of the Merc with a Mouth differs from X-Men Origins: Wolverine due to the reset of X-Men: Days of Future Past.
“I really don’t think this has anything to do with Days of Future Past or its timeline,” replied Reynolds. “If it were Deadpool, he could tell Days of Future Past to take its timeline and go fuck itself. We make fun of the timelines in the movie but no, Deadpool is not affected by that at all. Deadpool I think is just his own thing, his own universe and anytime the other X-Men interact with Deadpool in his universe they do so »

Box office analysts are expecting big things for Deadpool this weekend, and the R-Rated superhero movie is going to be helped in a big way by the plethora of positive reviews which have been doing the rounds (you can check out our own thoughts by clicking here).
Now, 20th Century Fox has released the first critics TV spot for the movie, and it features some awesome new scenes as we see the Merc with a Mouth break the fourth wall and make great use of slow motion.
Speculation is already running rampant about what the studio has planned for the Deadpool franchise, and some fans believe we’ll get the sequel as soon as next year. That seems unlikely in all honesty, as they’d need to get the script written and shooting started within the next few months. Stranger things have happened, though, so we’ll just have to »

In Flickering Myth’s interview with the writers of Deadpool – which will be unveiled in full in the new episode of the Flickering Myth Podcast tomorrow (head to SoundCloud to subscribe) – Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Zombieland) discuss how Marvel’s character right complications factored into the movie.
As a bit of context, Marvel sold off the movie rights to many of their characters in the mid-90s to avoid bankruptcy. That’s why the X-Men and Avengers occupy both separate Universes and studios (20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios, respectively).
This directly affected what Rhett and Paul originally had planned for Deadpool’s final scene – where Deadpool confronts super-villain Ajax on an aircraft carrier. It turns out that, once upon a time, the carrier was meant to be something a little more Marvel-branded.
“We wanted the carrier to be a Helicarrier,” said Reese of the concluding fight scene’s setting, »

"Deadpool" is intended to be the eighth installment in the "X-Men" film series, directed by Tim Miller, with a screenplay by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T. J. Miller, Gina Carano, Brianna Hildebrand, Stefan Kapičić, and Leslie Uggams:
"...in an effort to cure his terminal disease, former special forces operative 'Wade Wilson' is subjected to an experiment that enables him with accelerated healing powers, disfigured skin, an unstable mind, and a twisted sense of humor.
"Armed with new abilities and a new identity, Wilson hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life..."

In the comic-books, Deadpool is an equal opportunity smart aleck — and flirt. That’s a sensibility that the producers of the new 20th Century Fox superhero movie, starring Ryan Reynolds, tried to recreate for the upcoming tentpole.
But while the big-screen version of Deadpool earns a R-rating with graphic violence, profanity and sexual content, you won’t see this masked-hero sharing a bed with another man.
That could change, particularly if the film — which is expected to dominate the box office this weekend — spawns sequels. On the red carpet at a New York screening for “Deadpool” on Monday, alongside hundreds of fans decked in red tights and masks, Reynolds said he’s aware that Deadpool identifies as pansexual.
“I love that about Deadpool,” said Reynolds. “I love that he can break any boundary. In the future, I hope we get to do that more,” he said, alluding to his character »

Callous, crass, unpleasantly smug. Supposes it’s being edgy because its protagonist swears a lot, but it’s like a child saying bad words just to be naughty. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): nothing

The more I think about this movie, the more I dislike it. And I only just saw it last night, less than 24 hours ago. Gimme a few more days, and who knows how much I’ll hate it. Maybe this is the sort of movie people are referring to when they say you need to switch your brain off to enjoy it. “Don’t think about Deadpool too much! You’ll ruin it for yourself.”
This is not the sort of recommendation I will ever give a film.
The opening credits of Deadpool are pretty darn brilliant, and you don’t »

In the past few years, February has gone from a month that rarely features any box office hits, to a viable frame to open big blockbusters. Recent hits like The Lego Movie, Fifty Shades of Grey and Kingsman: The Secret Service have proved that fans will brave the elements and head to the theaters in droves for the right movie, and this year is no different, with three new releases arriving this weekend, all of which are slated to take in more than $20 million, according to the projections at Pro.BoxOffice.com. The big runaway winner, though, is expected to be the superhero adaptation Deadpool, which could come close to making box office history, although Zoolander 2 and How to Be Single are expected to perform well also.
Last month, analysts started tracking this blockbuster-to-be, predicting that its opening weekend could be anywhere between $55 million and $60 million. The movie has »
