'Deadpool 2' Will Introduce This Fan Favorite Mutant

10 February 2016 4:52 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 »

Marvelous DA7E: Deadpool and Cable and the Soul Stone

10 February 2016 12:50 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This week, Deadpool will be unleashed on the masses (that are old enough to get into an R-rated movie) after what seems like an awful long time in development.

For more details on how X-Men: Origins Wolverine and the terrible, horrible mess it made of the Wade Wilson character, I point you to the inaugural Los Fanboys Latino-Review podcast which has a great interview with Rob Liefeld and a discussion about Deadpool (as well as hot takes on the week’s most recent movie news, as you’ve come to expect).

Until Deadpool is something everyone’s gotten to see, best to not spoil the nitty gritty, the call backs or discuss the mystery of something called Feige’s Pizzeria appearing in the movie. Seeing as how Marvel Studios had nothing to do with it. I guess it’s now fair game to poke at the other megafranchise, which »

A 'Deadpool' Sequel, Featuring Cable, Is Now Being Written

10 February 2016 6:02 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you leave a "Deadpool" showing this weekend, begging for more Merc with a Mouth, you are in luck. Insiders told The Hollywood Reporter that studio 20th Century Fox has already given the green light to a "Deadpool" sequel, with a script now being written by the same screenwriters, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

THR said "Deadpool" director Tim Miller hasn't signed on (yet) to direct this sequel, but Fox wants to keep the original band together. Obviously that would have to include Ryan Reynolds -- who is promoting this movie like his life depends on it. It seems like he's invested in this character for the long haul, although it has to be exhausting to be "on" as much as he has been in the past few months.

Back in September, producer Simon Kinberg told Collider they were already hopeful that there would be another "Deadpool":

'Deadpool 2' Is Happening, Original Team Expected to Return

9 February 2016 6:31 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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: Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick interview

9 February 2016 2:21 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




The screenwriters and executive producers of Deadpool take us through the fight to bring the movie to the screen....

It took more than six years of development for Fox’s X-Men spin-off movie Deadpool to make it to the big screen. Along the way, multiple script drafts were written and manifold Marvel Comics characters were dropped in and out. It was only when that much-talked-about test footage did the rounds to much online applause that movie finally set a release date and became a tangible reality.

Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick – the writers who’ve been on board the R-rated Ryan Reynolds superhero movie since the start – spoke to us on the phone just before the movie’s release. We spoke about all sorts, covering X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Zombieland 2 and, of course, the Merc With The Mouth himself…

Ryan Reynolds on Deadpool’s Open Sexuality: A Boyfriend ‘Would Be Great’

9 February 2016 12:10 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

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 »

‘Deadpool’ Writers on Mocking Ryan Reynolds, the Joy of Leaked Footage

9 February 2016 11:18 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When “Deadpool” opens in movie theaters this week, the film’s writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick plan on being part of the paid audience. “It’s like Christmas to watch it with people,” says Wernick. “It’s been a difficult journey, one filled with a ton of heartache, so to see it come to fruition is a career highlight.”

Based on the irreverent comic created by writer Fabian Nicieza and artist-writer Rob Liefeld, “Deadpool” offers a different take on your traditional comic lead, a foul-mouthed, fourth-wall breaking smart ass who balks at the label of superhero. Ryan Reynolds played the character in the 2009 film “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and since then has been trying to spin off the character into his own franchise. As the screenwriters of the hit “Zombieland,” Reese and Wernick are a perfect match for the material and have been working on drafts since 2009. They have also »

Simon Kinberg on the X-men Universe Continuity, and Where Deadpool and Gambit Fall

5 February 2016 9:30 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The X-men movie franchise is definitely one muddled beast. It started off pretty straight forward with X-men all the way through X-men: The Last Stand. Things get a little bit weird with X-men Origins: Wolverine, a film that is still technically canon, but is largely ignored in the grand scheme of things. The timeline gets more interesting with X-men: First Class. It's a period piece, and as such, logically takes place before any of the other X-men films (with the potential exception of X-men Origins: Wolverine, which takes place throughout time--but again, the less said about that film, the better). The Wolverine takes place after all the X-men films.

So while it's all over the place, it's not terribly confusing by this point. But then we have X-men: Days Of Future Past, a film that holds as both a sequel to X-men: The Last Stand, The Wolverine, and X-men: First Class, »
