Creating superpowered characters – heroes and villains – for the X-Men universe of comic books has always had one clear advantage over the same process for other Marvel titles: there’s no need to take the trouble to invent an origin story.
Mutants, you see, come with their own one-size-fits-all origin. It was Marvel legend Stan Lee’s idea: to streamline the creative process and cut down on the storytelling necessary to introduce brand new characters, something that came in extraordinarily handy in the film adaptations of the franchise that began in 2000. However, once something becomes too easy, the danger of complacency begins to creep in. That’s certainly something the X-Universe Marvel titles have illustrated. There’s a casual laziness to the invention of the new in the mutant books that doesn’t seem to exist in the same way in the rest of the Marvel universe: the concept of »

Today the comic book legend was on BBC Radio 4 Today and the presenter informed him that Iceman had come out of the closet, much to his surprise. “You telling me that, is the first I’ve heard that Iceman is gay, is Iceman really gay?” he asks before the presenter informs him that it was a big story in the New York Times. “I don’t read the magazines anymore because my eyesight isn’t that good and the print is so small. As I said this is the first time I learned that Iceman is gay.”
“Wow! I never knew that,” he adds. “I don’t care what happens as long as they tell good stories.”

Though his place at the helm is yet to be formally confirmed, Liman has struck up a financially-sound working relationship with Fox in recent times, with Mr. & Mrs. Smith and Jumper earning sizeable chunks at the box office. Moreover, the filmmaker clearly has the support of Channing Tatum – still attached to topline the feature as the card-throwing mutant, despite production setbacks – who reportedly courted Liman for the gig a mere few weeks ago. »

Deadpool is one of the most anticipated movies of 2016, and in a surprising turn of events, the cast and filmmakers behind the movie haven't been shy about sharing its secrets. Still, at that, it's easy to assume that this entire movie takes place on a bridge. Today, we get two new photos and a ton of story details that dispute that. As it turns out, offering up plenty of behind-the-scenes details to satiate fans has actually enabled the director and his cast to keep quite a bit of the movie shrouded in mystery.
The latest two photos show Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson both in and out of his iconic Deadpool costume. The first image has Wade about to go on the operating table under the watchful eye of Gina Carano's Angel Dust and Ed Skrein's Ajax. While the second photo shows the leading man having a deep »
Time to finally dig out that mouldy Lycra cosplay outfit: after over 10 years in the making, a real, actual Deadpool film will finally arrive in 2016.
Better still, Ryan Reynolds will reprise his role as Wade Wilson - while simultaneously trying to forget his earlier X-Men Origins: Wolverine appearance. The story will revolve around his birth through the top secret Weapon X military programme, and a conflict with fellow Weapon X-er Ajax. But the real star of the show? Guns, bad puns, and Deadpool breaking the fourth wall like a boss.
1. Reynolds was exactly as surprised as you were when Deadpool was finally given the go-ahead. "It was the weirdest green light I've ever heard of, because they didn't tell us, they just dated the movie, »

Stan Lee created pretty much every major superhero in the Marvel Universe today. His name is attached to X-Men, Spider-Man, and The Incredible Hulk just to name a few. His history of creating great characters has already made him the industry's greatest icon. However, if you thought he was simply resting on his laurels, you would be incorrect. Stan Lee just created another new comic hero, and in a win for diversity, this hero is a Chinese woman. The Hollywood Reporter has the information about a new film, entitled Realm which is based on an original idea by Lee. The godfather of Marvel seems genuinely excited by this new opportunity to create something different in the superhero space. He says: What a kick it has been to create our first Chinese female superhero, and an empowering one at that. It has been such a fun experience bringing to life an »
Plot details are under wraps for “Realm,” which has a script by “Predators” writer Alex Litvak. The story is based on an original idea from Lee, the co-creator of Spider-Man, the Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor and the X-Men.
Li Bingbing will also produce alongside Gill Champion from Stan Lee Global Entertainment and Gregory Ouanhon of Fundamental, who will oversee production on behalf of their companies. Fundamental’s Gary Glushon will also executive produce.
“What a kick it has been to create our first Chinese female superhero, and an empowering one at that,” said Lee. “It has been such a fun experience bringing to life an international woman character, and the ability to do so has been different from anything we’ve ever done! I am thoroughly enjoying every minute of it. »

Now that comic book scribe Mark Millar can claim responsibility for the glittering success of both the Kick-Ass series and Kingsman: The Secret Service – itself on the path to becoming a franchise – you can understand the writer taking a break from the movie scene. How and ever, not one to rest on his laurels, Millar has teed up another comic-to-film property in Huck, and now the talent has vouched for Channing Tatum to land the title role.
Created alongside artist Rafael Albuquerque (American Vampire), Huck is a 6-issue miniseries that recently stumbled onto a path to the silver screen when Jeff Robinov’s Studio 8 picked up the rights earlier this month. While it’s still incubating in the early stages, Millar believes Tatum would make a perfect fit for the “Forest Gump/Captain America” style of character – a decision swayed by the Jump Street actor rushing to Stan Lee »

If all goes according to plan, 20th Century Fox will release three vastly different movies set within the X-Men universe next year, Deadpool (February 12, 2016), X-Men: Apocalypse (May 27, 2016) and Gambit (October 7, 2016). Both Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse are in post-production, but Gambit hasn't started shooting yet, since director Rupert Wyatt backed out of the project last month. Today we have a new report from Heroic Hollywood, which claims the studio has three contenders to replace Rupert Wyatt, Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow), Shane Black (Iron Man 3) and Joe Cornish (Attack the Block).
Of this trio of contenders, only Shane Black has experience directing in the superhero movie genre, having helmed Marvel's Iron Man 3. Joe Cornish did receive a story and screenplay credit for Marvel's Ant-Man, and he has been up for a number of high-profile directorial gigs such as Kong: Skull Island, but he hasn't directed a feature since his critically-acclaimed debut, »
