8 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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.

Interview: Ryan Reynolds for ‘Deadpool’

13 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

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.

Reynolds’ love for Deadpool never abated, though. Indeed, doing the character right meant having a chance to atone for mistakes of the past: Deadpool is unique »

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":

Let's Talk 'X-force' And A 'Deadpool' Budget Casualty

9 February 2016 7:58 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Deadpool is coming on Friday (you should see it!), and it represents a few interesting things for 20th Century Fox. For starters, it's a risky proposition in that it's a profane, violent R-rated caper set in the same universe as their cash cow X-men movies. It's also another attempt by Fox to expand its X-men series as it hopes to launch a cinematic universe on par with what Marvel Studios has created.

Something Fox did to counteract the risk they're taking- one that they were so adamant about avoiding that they shot down a Deadpool movie for years- is by keeping the budget low. Up until now, specific examples of how the tighter budget restricted director Tim Miller have been scant. But now, thanks to some comments from Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld (have you checked out our podcast with Rob yet?), we've got ourselves an example of where Miller had to tighten his belt. »

Deadpool Almost Featured Kane From X-Force, According To Rob Liefeld

9 February 2016 6:56 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

20th Century Fox’s Deadpool is yet to officially hit theaters in North America and already the internet is bowled over with the possibility of an X-Force movie easing into development.

It’s an X-Men spinoff that has quickly caught the eye of Ryan Reynolds himself, who was recently quoted as saying: “In the future I think, if we’re doing a bunch more Deadpool movies, we’re really going to explore the X-Men a lot, and maybe X-Force. X-Force is really my priority.” But had the situation panned out differently for Tim Miller and Fox’s standalone feature, one member of the X-Force could have been introduced ahead of schedule.

That’s according to Rob Liefeld, the creator behind X-Force and the Merc With a Mouth, who noted in an interview with Movies.com that plans were in place for Kane to make an »

Meet the Crazy 'X-Force' Character That Almost Appeared in 'Deadpool'

8 February 2016 9:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

One of the greatest aspects of Deadpool is that the film somehow exists in both the X-Men universe and our universe. It's unique in that way (and in a whole lotta other ways), and it's wild to see a superhero movie completely rip on other superhero movies while also being very much a part of that same system.  And sure, Deadpool is in Deadpool, but there are other popular comics characters too, like Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (and plenty of jokes about the other X-Men), but another celebrated character almost joined them and was unfortunately cut at the last minute: Garrison Kane. We spoke about Kane and how he would've been used in the movie with Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld in a wide-ranging interview that'll run throughout the week leading up...

Stan Lee tries his luck

8 February 2016 8:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although he’s created many iconic comic-book characters such as Spider-Man and the X-Men, Stan Lee is certainly showing no signs of slowing down as he recently delivered his first UK television creation in the form of Stan Lee’s Lucky Man.

The ten-part series gave the 93-year-old comic book writer the chance to explore familiar themes of an individual blessed with supernatural powers that he must use for the forces of good or evil.

And whilst it may be yet another superhero-styled creation, it does provide a welcome bonus for any comic book fans who’ve ever wanted to visit a casino or even head to an online site like Betway.

Stan Lee’s Lucky Man premiered on Sky 1 in late January 2016, and quickly introduced the central character of a detective inspector played by James Nesbitt whose wife has recently left him and also faces some crippling gambling debts. »

Will 'X-Force' Arrive Before 'Deadpool 2'?

8 February 2016 6:14 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Deadpool hitting theaters this weekend, Ryan Reynolds was been making the press rounds over the weekend to promote this superhero adventure. The movie has already been tracking well at the box office, with analysts predicting it could make between $55 million and $60 million on opening weekend. While most are expecting an official announcement for Deadpool 2 in the near future, Ryan Reynolds revealed in an interview with FilmStarts that his "priority" now is to bring the Merc With the Mouth into 20th Century Fox's X-Force movie. Here's what the actor had to say below, when asked about the future of his character.

"There's so much material to mine in just the X-Men universe. In the future, if we're doing a bunch more Deadpool movies, we're really going to explore the X-Men a lot. We'll see. And maybe X-Force - X-Force is my priority. I really want to get that in."

'Deadpool' Vs Psylocke in 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Viral Video

8 February 2016 1:03 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During the Super Bowl last night, 20th Century Fox released new trailers for two of its most highly-anticipated movies, this weekend's Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse, which hits theaters on May 27. We know that Deadpool is fully established within the X-Men movie universe, but it still remains to be seen how the Merc With the Mouth will be used in future movies. Over the weekend, X-Men: Apocalypse star Olivia Munn shared a new video through her Instagram page, featuring the actress showing off her Psylocke swordplay skills, along with a surprise guest, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds.

We know that Deadpool held its press day in San Francisco over Super Bowl weekend, and it seems that Olivia Munn was also doing press for X-Men: Apocalypse there as well, according to several posts on her Twitter and Instagram pages. This explains why both stars were seen together in this video, but some have »

'Deadpool' Has 2 Post-Credit Scenes

7 February 2016 4:58 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the past few days, the first critics screenings for Deadpool took place, and now that the reviews are in, this superhero adventure is already a critical hit. I personally had the pleasure of seeing this movie early, and while I can confirm that there is a post-credits scene at the very, very end of the movie, it seems that there is yet another scene that wasn't included in critics screenings. During an interview with Cinemablend, screenwriter Rhett Reese confirmed that a second "coda" was held back from early screenings, reserved for the theatrical release.

"They held back one particular, basically a second coda. They wanted to hold it back until February 11th, until the actual official movie is in the movies - so you can tease audiences that there's two codas and you haven't seen one of them."

'Deadpool' Super Bowl Commercial Changes the Superhero Game

7 February 2016 3:31 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, we reported that 20th Century Fox was planning a number of events for Deadpool during Super Bowl 50 weekend. For those in the San Francisco area during the big game, you may have noticed star Ryan Reynolds running a food truck and handing out the Merc's favorite food, chimichangas on Friday night, and on Saturday night, the studio took over a local bar near the stadium, which will be renamed Sister Margaret's Bar after the watering hole in the movie. For Deadpool fans all over the world, though, the studio debuted a new TV spot during the game which includes plenty of new footage.

Deadpool will go up against Warner Bros. romantic comedy How to Be Single and Paramount's comedy sequel Zoolander 2 on February 12. Box office analysts started tracking the superhero adventure last week, with some even claiming that it could hit north of $60 million in its opening frame. »

Film Review: ‘Deadpool’

6 February 2016 9:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At this point, a movie studio would have to torch its headquarters, donate its merchandising revenues to charity, and produce a seven-hour art film performed in Ukrainian sign language to do something that truly qualified as a subversive gesture. Until then, viewers should gladly submit to the gleefully self-skewering pleasures of “Deadpool,” a scabrously funny big-screen showcase for the snarkiest of Marvel’s comic-book creations — a disfigured and disreputable mercenary who likes to crack wise, bust heads and generally lay waste to the idea that he’s anyone’s hero. As a vehicle for the impudent comic stylings of Ryan Reynolds, this cheerfully demented origin story is many, many cuts above “Green Lantern,” and as a sly demolition job on the superhero movie, it sure as hell beats “Kick-Ass.” And given the resurgence of fanboy interest following a well-received trailer at last year’s Comic-Con (plus the benefit of Imax »

Review: 'Deadpool' is the world's most violent and vulgar Bugs Bunny cartoon

6 February 2016 9:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

To be honest, I can't believe this movie even exists. It's not like Deadpool is some impossible to decipher art film, or like the plot is impossible to follow. It's more a case of "Fox has never been this loose or this adventurous with any of their franchise superhero properties, and I'm not sure how anyone convinced them to do this," and if for no other reason, I salute the studio for taking this particular chance. And while superhero films are enormously popular and the X-Men franchise in general has been a steady performer for the studio, make no mistake: Deadpool represents a genuine roll of the dice. Aside from the R-rating, a first for this franchise, it's also just plain weird. Structurally, I can't think of another film quite like it. It's two scenes as well as some flashbacks and connective tissue. That's it. In one scene, Deadpool attacks »

[Review] Deadpool

6 February 2016 8:59 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

As Hollywood struggles to reinvent their array of superheroes with each iteration, it’s no surprise that audiences would become hungry for something off the beaten path. While it’s not the first post-modern comic-book adaptation, Deadpool is billed as ushering in a new direction: a fan-spurred, self-aware tentpole that’s R-rated to its core, featuring a wise-ass character (don’t call him a superhero) who’s fully cognizant of his outsider status in both the world he inhabits and Hollywood’s comic-book sandbox writ large. Despite the excess of fourth-wall-breaking continually reminding us of both, Tim Miller‘s directorial debut ultimately ends up feeling like another similarly structured, monotonous origin story, albeit with a more vulgar veneer.

Scripted by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese (Zombieland), and based on Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld‘s original comic series, Deadpool stars Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson, a former special ops soldier with a 40+ kill streak. »

'Deadpool' Wishes Everyone a Happy Valentine's Day

6 February 2016 1:22 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Deadpool is set to have the biggest Valentine's Day opening at the box office ever. And because of that, the superhero epic has not been shy about showing off its sexier, more romantic side. Today, the Merc with the Mouth has released two special Valentine's Day themed videos, hoping you'll call him for a date. About finding that perfect someone, he reaches out with these sultry words.

"Hello there ladies, and some gentlemen. People. Let's go with people. With Valentine's Day fast approaching, I thought maybe you and I could, you know, (bleep). But only in (bleep). Sure, I know what you're thinking. He sounds real sexy. But what's under that red suit? Just imagine the body of Ryan Reynolds with the face of Ryan Reynolds' inbred cousin who burnt his face in a bizarre marshmallow roasting accident. But to compensate for that, what else, super penis! Hmm. Call me. »

Disney Sues Stan Lee Media, Finds Bank Accounts Empty

5 February 2016 2:31 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in 1998, comic book legend Stan Lee formed a startup company entitled Stan Lee Media, to manage a growing list of new characters that were being created. Shortly thereafter, Stan Lee himself cut ties with the company, before it went bankrupt in 2000. While that would normally be the end for a company like this, the defunct Stan Lee Media went ahead and sued Disney several times, starting in 2007, claiming they owned the rights to superhero characters created by Stan Lee, such as Spider-Man. Disney won every time, but now, according to Pirated Thoughts, the studio is now suing Slm, over nearly a half million dollars in unpaid legal fees.

Stan Lee Media never claimed that they owned the rights to several characters until the bankrupt company started filing lawsuits against Disney in 2007, at least six of them. The lawsuits claimed that Stan Lee transferred the rights to beloved characters like Spider-Man, »
