Ryan Reynolds has proven himself to be an adept fighter on the big screen, from an early appearance in Blade: Trinity all the way through the years to Deadpool (above). He's also proving to be a worthy warrior on social media. During production on Deadpool, Reynolds shared a slew of clever promotional images and he's continued that pattern now that Deadpool 2 is in production. Recently, for example, he shared a first-look photo of himself as Deadpool together with Zazie Beetz as Domino, a mutant mercenary.

At one point in time Wesley Snipes was one of the biggest action stars in the United States, as shown by his roles in Demolition Man, Passenger 57, and the Blade franchise. However, his career suffered a slowdown following Blade: Trinity in 2004, which was not helped by his conviction for tax fraud. Said career did not come to a complete stop, seeing as how Snipes continued to make direct-to-dvd movies, but it was clear that he was no longer at the top. Since that time, Snipes has had some minor roles in movies released in the movie theaters, with

Despite the seemingly eternal rival between the two largest comic book brands, some big actors have been in films from both Marvel and DC. The animosity between Marvel and DC goes back decades in the comics world, but it’s still burgeoning in Hollywood. And it turns out a bunch of actors have switched sides in that corporate war over the years — and some are making that move even now.

When it comes to Blade's return to the big screen, it might be a matter of 'when' not 'if'...
Before Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man, before Chris Evans' Captain America, before the McU as we know it...there was Blade. The fearless daywalking vampire hunter was played to perfection by Wesley Snipes in two box office hits, before a tumultuous third instalment in the franchise - Blade: Trinity - pumped the brakes on Blade's cinematic story.

Since then, there's been a dodgy TV series adaptation that replaced Snipes with rapper Sticky Fingaz, and then silence (bar a few hopeful mutterings that Blade could resurface or be rebooted for the big screen once more).
Is Blade the vampire hunter set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Not that we can expect to see a reboot in the near future, but don't be surprised if the character shows up in the McU at some point soon. Marvel Studios' head honcho Kevin Feige is in charge and, if he has his way, it will happen someday. Unless someone else gets his job, he more or less will get his way, so this is pretty good news for Blade fans.
Kevin Feige has been making the press rounds for Spider-Man: Homecoming and took some time to chat with JoBlo. During the conversation, the subject of Blade 4 came up and the possibility of the character having a future in the McU. Kevin Feige's answer was very positive, saying that the folks in charge think it would be cool, but the time isn't right just yet. Here's »
Damn, dude! Simon says that Wesley Snipes looks fantastic for a 54-year-old badass. Honestly, I don't think I've seen him act in anything since the 2004 release of Blade: Trinity. That being said, Snipes has been keeping himself busy while appearing in some under-the-radar flicks like The Marksman, The Detonator, The Contractor, and Hard Luck. Beyond that, he's also lent his talents to films like... Read More »

More news on the big screen reboot of Masters Of The Universe, that Sony is finally pressing ahead with. Yesterday, it was revealed that the movie now has a release date, with the studio earmarking it for a December 18th 2019 unveiling. It was also thought that McG, who has been attached as director since early last year, was still on board to call the shots.
But not so. We now learn that McG and He-Man have parted company, and that Sony is on the lookout for a new director to take on the project. Meetings have been taking place with potential candidates. In the meantime, David S Goyer, a comic book movie regular (The Dark Knight trilogy, Man Of Steel, Blade: Trinity) is working on a new screenplay for the film. »
Exactly one week ago, after months of speculation, it was finally confirmed that Josh Brolin has signed on to play the iconic Marvel character Cable in Deadpool 2. Today we have new artwork from Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, who shares a hand-drawn pencil sketch of Josh Brolin as Cable, along with new artwork from celebrated artist BossLogic that brings the sequel's cast together, and even a few behind-the-scenes images from Josh Brolin himself. While these photos doesn't show what he looks like as Cable just yet, he did share the first step in the long process to becoming the time traveling mutant.
Rob Liefeld took to Instagram yesterday to showcase his own artwork, which highlights the iconic scars over Cable's right eye. By the time we finally get to see what Cable looks like on the big screen, he could look vastly different than this depiction, but it's still interesting »
Even though Ryan Reynolds has proven his bona fides in the “being able to swear and sound good doing it” department, thanks to movies like Deadpool and Blade: Trinity (not a good film, admittedly, but Reynolds is good in it), he’s about to face his toughest opponent, someone who makes swearing sound as natural as breathing. In the trailer for The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Reynolds’ protection agent—one of the best in the world, we’re told—is assigned to a legendary hitman, played by Samuel L. Jackson in full-on “don’t give a fuck” mode. Reynolds does his best to guard his murderous ward, as they stave off attacks by an Eastern European dictator played by Gary Oldman.
This is the kind of high-concept comedy that can easily go astray, though the trailer manages to sell it pretty well, in large part thanks to Reynolds’ affable charm. Jackson »

In 2004, Ryan Reynolds talked to Entertainment Weekly about filming Blade: Trinity—by far the shittiest of the three Blade movies and Reynolds’ very first attempt to get himself a superhero franchise. Reynolds and Wesley Snipes, the man who played Blade, apparently didn’t get along. Addressing rumors of on-set tensions, Reynolds would say only this: “I’ve never met Wesley Snipes. I’ve only met Blade.” To this, anyone with any sense would only feel vast, painful envy. Who wouldn’t want to meet Blade? I would give everything I own to meet Blade.
Snipes’ Blade is, to my mind, one of the greatest cinematic creations of the late ’90s, even if ...

For those unfamiliar with the character, his real name is Jefferson Pierce and he was one of “DC’s first high profile African-American superheroes – who arrived on the pages of DC comic books in 1977, created by Tony Isabella and Trevor Von Eeden.” An Olympic athlete, Pierce returns home only to find his neighbourhood terrorized by a gang called The 100. Using his metahuman abilities, which include manipulating bio-electric fields, he fights to save the people he knows and loves.

The goal of any movie franchise is to build upon what came before while addressing its audience's expectations. In a film like last year's unconventional (and record-breaking) Deadpool, which kicked the superhero genre squarely in its collective cojones, this poses a real dilemma. Deadpool was successful precisely because it broke with convention and sought to be different; however, the concept of "sequel" generally implies formula.
The simple answer: play to your strengths! Deadpool was primarily interested in exploring its characters. Sure, every movie is about characters, but unlike most of the recent superhero films, which thrive on plot and spectacle, Deadpool shoved action and narrative aside to more deeply focus upon its characters and their relationships. I think we can all agree, »

I think many of us can agree that Blade has been sitting on the bench for far too long. Not only did the vampire hunter prove that R-rated comic book movies could earn serious dough at the box office, but he also managed to beat the likes of X-Men and Spider-Man to the punch when it came to big screen Marvel adaptations that could be taken seriously.
But after Blade: Trinity debuted to mixed reactions back in 2004, the character has yet to headline any other cinematic outings, instead being relegated to television, first in a live action series on Spike that folded after only one season and then in an anime on G4. Although the latter seemed to resonate more with fans, there are those of us who are eagerly awaiting a film franchise reboot.
Another person who seems to be in the same boat is Anthony Mackie, whom followers »

Back in January it was revealed that David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) had signed on to produce Warner Bros.’ Green Lantern Corps, as well as co-writing the script with Justin Rhodes (Grassroots, Contract Killers).
Well, if Jeff Sneider on Meet the Movie Press is to be believed, Goyer “could very well wind up directing Green Lantern Corps himself.” The report follows Sneider’s claims that The Shallows director Jaume Collet-Serra is also in contention to direct another DC Films project, Suicide Squad 2.
In addition to his extensive comic book movie screenwriting experience, Goyer has directed Blade: Trinity, along with episodes of Da Vinci’s Demons and Flashforward.
Green Lantern Corps has been described as ‘Lethal Weapon in space’, and will focus on John Stewart’s Green Lantern training under Hal Jordan. It is slated for release in 2020, although there has been rumours that »

When Warner Bros. initially announced planned release dates for their DC Extended Universe, one title was noticeably absent, a Green Lantern film. Aside from rumors, Green Lantern is absent from all Justice League materials thus far, seeming to indicate that WB is looking to put off Green Lantern as long as possible following the sub-par 2011 film. Yet, earlier this year WB announced Green Lantern Corps would be written by Davis Goyer (Batman Begins, Man of Steel, Batman V Superman) and newcomer Justin Rhodes , based on a story by Goyer and Geoff Johns. It would feature two Lanterns, Hal Jordan and Jon Stewart, in what was described as "Lethal Weapon in space."
Today, the rumor broke that Goyer may actually be directing Green Lantern Corps. Batman News first reported this story with information from an interview with reporter Jeff Sneider on the Meet The Movie Press podacst. Batman News acknowledges this »

But those two shows are far from the only ones to depict bloodsuckers (to use a pejorative term) on screen, and IndieWire has dusted off the TV crypt to unearth a ranker of our favorite fangs.
Yes, we know there’s a lot at stake here.
