Ryan Reynolds' new Deadpool costume revealed

27 March 2015 11:53 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Leave it to Vancouver funnyman Ryan Reynolds to have the most ridiculous and charming superhero suit reveal.

This isn’t the first time Reynolds has played a superhero – he played Green Lantern, after all – but it’s also not the first time he’s played Deadpool, the "merc with a mouth." In X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Reynold’s Wade Wilson was more of a 2000s bro with some samurai swords.

For Deadpool’s standalone film, the filmmakers are pushing the cargo pants aside. There's a brand new look for Deadpool, and you can almost hear Reynolds's character whispering, “Draw me like one of your French girls.”

Deadpool also stars Haywire’s Gina Carano and Morena Baccarin of “Firefly,” Serenity, and probably other things that aren’t “Firefly” and Serenity, but those aren’t nearly as important because they're not “Firefly” and Serenity. The film is currently filming in Vancouver, and set »

Deadpool Gets A New Logo And Synopsis

27 March 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

On top of this morning’s exciting (and eerily saucy) reveal of Ryan Reynolds in costume as Deadpool, 20th Century Fox has kickstarted what appears to be the beginning of the marketing campaign for the film, which includes the launch of the movie’s official Twitter account and website, along with the first logo and synopsis.

The logo itself is pretty straightforward, and what we’ve come to expect from a comic book adaptation. The synopsis is the real gem here, as it gives us the overall story for the film and confirms that the Merc with a Mouth will indeed have his trademark sense of dark humor when he finally gets the solo outing we’ve been waiting for:

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 »

First Full Look At Ryan Reynolds In Costume As Deadpool

27 March 2015 9:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Taking to his personal Twitter account earlier this morning, Ryan Reynolds lifted the curtain on the first official look at his Deadpool costume in typical fashion.

Posing in a way that would make Rose DeWitt Bukater proud, the photo sees Reynolds don the superhero guise for a rather intimate still. Here’s what the actor had to share.

With great power, comes great irresponsibility. #deadpool#officialsuit@deadpoolmoviepic.twitter.com/MPM89bYz1B

Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 27, 2015

For the film, Reynolds will play the part of Wade Wilson, Marvel’s idiosyncratic anti-hero that earns his title as the Merc with a Mouth for his quirky one-liners and devastating physical abilities. The project has flirted with development for some time, particularly after the actor’s cameo in the otherwise poor X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but it was the tidal wave of support that rose to the fore following the release of last year’s excellent test footage. »

Exclusive Interview: Alan Tudyk Talks ‘Con Man’ And ‘Firefly’

25 March 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It is a well-known fact here at Thn that I’m somewhat a fan of Firefly. The sci-fi western starring Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk combined a great world, intriguing narrative and some utterly brilliant characters with a typically snappy Joss Whedon script. What’s not to love? Who knows, but Firefly was cancelled after a limited run in 2002, despite its Browncoat army of fans protests.

Since the show’s farewell movie Serenity, Joss Whedon has successfully assembled The Avengers on the silver screen already and is overseeing the upcoming sequel Avengers: Age Of Ultron, while it’s cast has been busy on films like I, Robot, Dodgeball and Wreck-it Ralph, not to mention starring in hit shows Castle, Suits and Homeland. Had everybody moved on and forgotten their love of Firefly and its cast? Of course not!

The TV Casts We ‘Adopt’

14 March 2015 6:52 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

This week, Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion teamed up to raise funds for an IndieGoGo campaign. The idea is Tudyk’s, and he wants to make a web series called “Con Man” about an actor from a “killed too soon” sci-fi TV show where he piloted a ship, and Nathan Fillion plays the actor who played the captain. Naturally, since these are Firefly actors and this is essentially a concept that marries Firefly itself with Galaxy Quest, it struck a chord with fans. Tudyk was asking for $425,000 to fund the first batch of episodes, and by the end of the day he’d tripled that with $1.2M in donations. This is, of course, no surprise. You only had to watch the intro video (which also co-starred Seth Green, Gina Torres, Felicia Day, and James Gunn, who are all involved with the project) to know that it would be funded. Why? »

‘Con Man’ celebrates web series funding record by releasing sneak peak

13 March 2015 6:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Never underestimate the collective power of Firefly fans. On Wednesday, we reported that Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion, two of the show’s former cast members, were launching an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for their new comedic web series Con Man. The duo hoped to raise $425,000 for the project, but donations from a rabid swarm of Firefly fans shot above $1.5 million within 48 hours. With 28 days of funding left to go, EW reports that the project has already become the highest-funded web series in history.

Tudyk and Fillion have enough coin to produce ten episodes of Con Man, which revolves around the humorously weird experiences of a former cult sci-fi series actor as he makes his way around the convention circuit. Tudyk stars as Wray Nealy, the brave conventioneer, while Fillion plays Wray’s friend and former co-star Jack Moore, who has since catapulted to major movie stardom.

To thank those who donated to the project, »

If the series reaches its ultimate goal of $1.75 million, two more episodes will be produced, bringing Season 1 to 13 episodes, one of which will be a complete episode of the sci-fi "show-within-a-show" entitled Spectrum.

Firefly’s Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion Surpass Their Goal for ‘Con Man’ Campaign

12 March 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Firefly co-stars Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion have launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.com in order to produce the first three episodes of their new web series, Con Man, which is described as a light-hearted take on the personalities, luminaries, and characters in the sci-­fi community both actors are part of.

Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion's new project passes crowd-funding goal in a day

11 March 2015 4:19 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Joss Whedon's space western Firefly has one of the most passionate fandoms out there, because it's, well, the best show ever. As such, its untimely cancellation (and the network's handling of it leading up to that) is considered to be one of the most unjust treatments of a TV show ever. Joss Whedon and the cast returned for the big-screen continuation Serenity, and there have been a few comic book stories, but fans still clamour for more Firefly.

While Firefly itself may not return to our screens any time soon, due to a number of real-world factors, this new project is probably the closest we'll get for a while. Called Con Man, and created by Alan Tudyk (Wash from Firefly) and produced by Nathan Fillion (Mal from Firefly), it's a web series about the world of conventions and fandom, comprising several 10-minute episodes.

The initial goal was for three episodes, »

The Firefly tv series has long been accepted into the group of shows whose cult following has far exceeded their commercial run, as the show’s single season of 14 episodes has seen an enduring popularity that has kept it in the pop culture conversation over a decade after the series went off the air.

Now, two castmembers are joining together to make a webseries about their convention experiences, called Con Man, and are lookign to the public to raise funds for the project, via indiegogo.

The show, which is billed as a comedy, will revolve around the various personalities that can be seen behind the scenes at numerous conventions, something the duo have plenty of experience in. Nathan Fillion, who played Mal Reynolds in Firefly and can »
