Deadpool will be part of X-Men movie continuity

3 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Deadpool will sit as part of the X-Men movie universe, that producer Simon Kinberg admits is influenced by Marvel's success...

There's still a degree of pinching ourselves over the news that the long-mooted Deadpool movie is actually going to happen. The film is set to be directed by Tim Miller, and it's on the schedules for release in February 2016. Ryan Reynolds is expected to take on the title tole. There's also been some discussion over whether it'll target an R-rating or a PG-13, but we've heard no more about that.

What we do know now, however, is that Deadpool will be part of the X-Men movie universe continuity that's being built, and won't sit as a standalone project.

Chatting to ComicBook.com, producer Simon Kinberg - who's also been on script duties for Fantastic Four, X-Men: Days Of Future Past and the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse - said that "there’s »

Deadpool Will Fit Into Overall 'X-Men' Universe

17 October 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The X-Men film series has certainly regained momentum in recent years after being considered all but finished with X-Men 3: The Last Stand. Now it seems like those behind the X-Men film franchise are trying to capitalize on this momentum by creating an X-Men shared film universe, much in the same vein that Marvel Films has done.

Comicbook.com recently interviewed Simon Kinberg (writer of X-Men: Days of Future Past and the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot) and he was quick to mention one X-Men character who will see his own spin-off film:

There’s definitely a sort of overall plan that we’ve all been talking about for the X-Men universe now, and Deadpool obviously fits into that.

So the upcoming Deadpool movie will somehow tie into the overall X-Men Universe, whether that means little cameos or an overarching storyline is unknown at the time. Deadpool was last seen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. »

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Interview with Shawn Ashmore

14 October 2014 7:23 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Almost 15 years ago, X-Men helped bring the superhero genre to life with a blockbuster adventure that showed comic book characters could bring in big crowds at the box office. After hit sequels X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand, 20th Century Fox returned to the past with 2011's X-Men: First Class, which took the action back to the 1960s. While many thought the original trilogy characters' time was over, those many were quite wrong, with both the past and present coming together in the summer blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past, now available on Deluxe Edition Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD.

I recently had the chance to speak with one of the original trilogy cast members Shawn Ashmore, who returns as Bobby "Iceman" Drake in director Bryan Singer's hit superhero adventure, which took in nearly $750 million worldwide during its theatrical run this summer. Take a look at our conversation below, »

Why is Hollywood building so many cinematic universes?

10 October 2014 4:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Marvel to Star Wars and Universal's monsters, Hollywood's become obsessed with universe building. Mark takes a closer look...

It feels weird to open with a spoiler warning for a medical drama from the 1980s, but if you're particularly sensitive to plot details from St. Elsewhere, you might wish to skip to the first sub-heading.

The infamous season finale placed all of the characters and events that had preceded it in the imagination of one of the doctors' autistic sons, Tommy Westphall, who dreamt it all up while staring into a snow globe that contained a replica of the hospital where it all took place. The funny thing is, St. Elsewhere had crossed over with other American TV shows, including Homicide: Life On The Street and Cheers, meaning they also potentially took place in Tommy's imagination.

James Earl Jones Returns as Darth Vader in Star Wars Rebels

9 October 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I couldn't be more excited to report that James Earl Jones is reprising his role as Darth Vader in Star Wars Rebels! How freakin' awesome is that?? I'm beside myself with excitement! Okay, that's enough exclamation points. 

Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion was a fantastic start to the new series. The kids and I had a great time watching it, and it's only going to get better from here. The movie episode is currently making the rounds on iTunes, Amazon streaming, and Disney Xd. It was also announced that ABC will broadcast an alternate version of Spark of Rebellion on Sunday, October 26th.  

The coolest part about this ABC broadcast is that it will include a scene with Darth Vader, and that is when we will be able to hear the magically menacing voice of Jones as the villainous character again.

Here's the full press release with all »

Living Pictures on the Small Screen #1

8 October 2014 11:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Introduction

Welcome to the first installment of “Living Pictures on the Small Screen,” a weekly column dedicated to animated programming on television. Cultural commentary inevitably comes with bias, and I wanted to create this column in appreciation of the people and shows that helped me overcome my own bias regarding animation. Like most kids in my socioeconomic sphere, I grew up watching cartoons. Some of them were legitimately good (Batman: The Animated Series and Rocko’s Modern Life) and some of them were simply there when I turned the TV on after school (Inspector Gadget and Cow and Chicken). Once I started taking film and television more seriously as an adult, it was hard not to associate animation with childhood. It was even harder to appreciate animated films and series–which I had to view from a distance, since I wasn’t witnessing real people on the screen–alongside things »

Marvelous Da7e 66: Best and Worst Possible Outcomes

8 October 2014 9:54 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome To Issue 66!

If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie/TV news, rumors, and speculation. 

This Week: Let's not talk about TV for a week, because a ton of stuff happened. I'm going to break the best bits down for you using a trusty gimmick of hypothesizing the best and the worst case scenarios as a fan of these properties.

Whoo-boy! What a week for speculation about the future of Marvel properties. You think with Gone Girl being out we would have got a bit more Batman leakage, but apparently that’s not as fun to talk about as the movings of different superhero mega-franchises.

Sony’s Spidey-Verse, Marvel’s McU and Fox’s Marvel Properties all had rumored major motions this last week and it’s shaking up the long view for each franchise. Each one of »

Why X-Men and The Fantastic Four should not share the same universe

8 October 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach on why X-Men and The Fantastic Four should not share the same universe…

Mark Millar spoke months ago about X-Men and The Fantastic Four sharing the same universe and fans were not happy. Millar later stated that this did not mean they would show up in each others films or anything simply that there may be references to them co-existing. Although writer-producer Simon Kinberg said back in May that the charac ters would “live in discrete universes”, he has now said that a crossover between the X-Men and the Fantastic Four is “not out of the realm of possibility.”

Whereas the Marvel Cinematic Universe planned ahead with building their universe, it seems Fox is just trying to copy that formular. Maybe I am wrong and there may have been plans to have X-Men and the Fantastic Four share the same universe for some time, but I doubt it. »

How will Deadpool be integrated into the X-Men universe?

7 October 2014 9:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach on how Deadpool will be integrated into the X-Men movie universe…

Simon Kinberg has announced that Deadpool will share the same cinematic universe as the X-Men, which is no surprise. The X-Men universe has been somewhat reset with X-Men: Days of Future Past and with a new Deadpool movie set for February 12th, 2016, fans are surely excited to see how he will fit into what has already be done at Fox.

Frankly, despite this being an unsurprising move, it may in fact be a mistake. As Deadpool is so different to the X-Men characters despite featuring prominently in some of the comic stories, it would make more sense to keep the character on his own.

If you enjoyed X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past you may understand why Deadpool interacting with some of these characters would be bad. I would say that the X-Men reset »
