Subtle X-Men Origins: Wolverine Nod Spotted In New Deadpool 2 Trailer

One of Deadpool‘s strongest superpowers is his ability to regenerate from practically any injury. But even Wade Wilson struggled to recover from what was done to him in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine – in which they took the Merc with a Mouth, famed for his wisecracks and jokes and uh, sealed up his mouth.

It was like putting Spider-Man in your film and amputating his arms, or giving Bruce Banner a heavyweight dose of valium. Unsurprisingly, Deadpool went out of its way to poke fun at the character’s shoddy treatment in that movie and it’s looking like the sequel is going to be no different.

That said, this new Easter Egg, found in the latest trailer, required eagle eyes to spot, so full credit to the aptly named @4EyedRaven on Twitter for being able to pick it out:

Jeff Wadlow Reveals Why His ‘X-Force’ Movie Didn’t Happen; Talks ‘Masters of the Universe’ Plans

In Hollywood, major projects can sometimes go through multiple rounds of development. A movie like X-Men: First Class, for example, didn’t begin and end with filmmaker Matthew Vaughn. Its origins date back to a Magneto prequel movie that was in development, whose script was then mashed together with an early draft for a First Class movie by Josh Schwartz, and then the film ultimately went through even more evolution once Vaughn signed on. This is kind of par for the course, especially when it comes to big IP, and that’s certainly the case with the X-Men

Red Sonja Remake Revs Back Up with X-Men: First Class Writer

Millennium Films is making another push to bring a new Red Sonja movie to the big screen, nearly a decade after it first started developing the remake. The production company has enlisted Ashley Miller (X-Men: First Class) to write the screenplay, although no director is attached at this time. Millennium Films' Avi Lerner is putting this on the fast track to production, after the massive success of Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman, which over performed at the box office last summer taking in $412.5 million domestic and $821.8 million worldwide. Here's what Miller had to say in a statement about coming aboard to write Red Sonja.

"It's an exciting opportunity to faithfully adapt the amazing Hyborean world Robert E. Howard created, and inject it with Sonja's intelligence, ferocity, and fearless humanity. I want people to love Sonja the way I love her, and walk out of the theater understanding why she's so popular and enduring.

The Predator Brings in Captain America: Civil War Composer

The Predator Brings in Captain America: Civil War Composer
Henry Jackman is going to compose the score for Shane Black's The Predator. Black, who starred alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in the original Predator, has been hard at work on the reboot/sequel for a while now, but the project is coming together and will be released in theaters this fall. One of the final pieces of the puzzle has been put into place, as the Captain America: Civil War composer has been tapped to score the original soundtrack for The Predator.

As far as composers in the modern landscape of cinema, Henry Jackman may not be the flashiest name, but he's very capable and prolific. Aside from Captain America: Civil War, some of his credits include Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Kong: Skull Island, Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, Captain Phillips and Disney's upcoming Wreck-It Ralph sequel, Ralph Breaks the Internet. He's also worked in the video game world,

DC Entertainment is Still Developing a Booster Gold Movie

It's been a couple years since we've had any updated on Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment's feature film adaptation of Booster Gold. I wasn't sure if the movie was even still going to happen, especially after there was that big shake-up in DC film leadership at the studio.

Well, if you're a fan of Booster Gold, you'll be happy to learn that Greg Berlanti (Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow) is still developing it. While talking to The Wrap during an interview Berlanti said:

“It’s still in development with DC. They’re trying to figure out both the distance that we still have to travel and how we want to execute it.”

The studio is also still trying to figure out “how it’s going to fit into their greater landscape” which means the rest of the DC film slate, which they are also still trying to figure out. He

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Set Photo Reveals Team’s New Costumes

The team of X-Men have brand new costumes in a new set photo from X-Men: Dark Phoenix. Over the last 18 years of Fox’s X-Men universe, there’s been several iterations of the team. Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine led the first, but upon a clever reboot in X-Men: First Class, younger versions of pre-established characters took over. That team didn’t last long, which led Professor X to form a new team by the end of X-Men: Apocalypse.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Needs To Kill One Of The First Class Team

X-Men: Dark Phoenix will be the 4th outing featuring the cast of First Class – and it’s time for at least one of the major characters to die. It might be hard to remember now, but the franchise was in rough shape when X-Men: First Class arrived in 2011. The series had started strong with the first two movies, with the original X-Men being credited alongside Blade and Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man will kicking off the comic book movie craze. While the first two entries are a touch dated now, they had great casts, exciting setpieces, and – most importantly – treated the source material with respect.

Jennifer Lawrence: Her best performances so far

There are few brighter stars in Hollywood than Jennifer Lawrence. Ever since she broke through with her Academy Award nominated performance in Winter’s Bone, and especially once she starred in The Hunger Games, the A-list was a foregone conclusion for her. Lawrence is young, ambitious, talented, and a refreshingly honest presence in the industry. With a new starring role in Red Sparrow hitting this week, now is the perfect time to remind ourselves of just how good she really is. Below you’ll find her best performances, at least in my humble opinion, with a little bit about how she became the toast of tinseltown. Suffice to say, Lawrence is an icon, plain and simple. We can jump right off with her ten best performances to date: 10. House at the End of the Street 9. Red Sparrow 8. Passengers 7. Like Crazy 6. Joy 5. The Beaver 4. American Hustle 3. Winter’s Bone 2. mother! 1. Silver

Henry Cavill reportedly wants to extend his Superman contract with Warner and DC

While the reception to Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League has been mixed, it’s fair to say that actor Henry Cavill has made the most of the material he’s been given with his role as Superman in the DC Extended Universe. And, if a report from Revenge of the Fans is to be believed, we could be seeing plenty more of Cavill’s Man of Steel over the next few years.

According to the site, both Warner Bros. and Cavill are keen to push ahead with the long-rumoured Man of Steel 2, but is “all a matter of contractual logistics.” Cavill apparently has one movie remaining on his original deal, which the studio would like to fill with a new solo film, whereas Cavill wants his reported – and yet-to-be-confirmed – Shazam! cameo to count as his final appearance before signing a new deal, beginning

Movie Review: Game Night

It wasn’t so long ago that hard R-rated comedies were coming out every week. The Hangover (2009) seemed to come out of nowhere and rejuvenate the genre to blockbuster heights. In the years following we got the likes of Bad Teacher (2011), Hot Tub Time Machine (2010), This is the End (2013), two more incredibly unfunny Hangover sequels (2011/2013), and Horrible Bosses (2011). There were many more of course, but it’s that last one that draws a tie to the latest hard R-rated comedy attempting to hit the zeitgeist. Horrible Bosses came out in the summer of 2011 when we were bombarded with blockbusters like Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, X-Men: First Class, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The comedy was a huge success for the studio as it entertained audiences without over-sensitizing them.

Flash forward almost seven years later and you’ll notice Warner Bros.

Which Marvel Film Has Made the Most Money? Here's the Whole List

Marvel Comics is one of the biggest production companies in the film industry at the moment, and with its new release of Black Panther, it is only going to continue to make more money - and rightfully so. Black Panther is already making history at the Us box office, raking in $242 million domestically over the three-day weekend. That total puts it in second place for the highest four-day opening of all time, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which took in $288 million. When you look at worldwide numbers, Black Panther is even more impressive. The movie has already earned $426.6 million across the globe! That gigantic number got us wondering just how much money all of the Marvel films have made over the years. There are so many films to choose from, and a lot of them have been popular, but when all is said and done, how much money have they actually earned?

The Last Word on ‘Wonder Woman’

Okay, before I get to everything else, what the hell is with these superhero movies like “Wonder Woman” rewriting history? Like-, c’mon- okay, alternative future, fine, I get that. Alternative parallel present world where now superheroes exists, okay, that I can get behind, but now both Marvel and DC, multiple times, are now taking superheroes into the past, and placing them in history. That is stupid. I don’t care how well it’s pulled off, the whole point of superheroes is that we’re imagining a fictional world in which there are now a group of people greater than humans exist in the world that are capable of amazing feats, that we can only imagine. When you put those characters in the past, we can’t imagine ’cause now they’re there and history would then be changed. Why would there be a world where World War II happened,

Spring For the Large Popcorn; Black Panther Is Freakin' Long

  • BuzzSugar
Have your popcorn and soda ready for the Black Panther movie! Like its siblings, Marvel's latest installment is one of this year's lengthier blockbusters. Within the Marvel universe, Black Panther is in a league of its own. In addition to having an enormously stacked cast (seriously, we're in love with Chadwick Boseman), the movie will give us a closer look at Wakanda's society, which means there will be plenty of time devoted to worldbuilding. Not that we even mind, since seeing all of the sleek action sequences and cool gizmos will be worth keeping our theater seats warm. Clocking in at two hours and 14 minutes, Black Panther isn't the longest Marvel movie (though it's pretty darn close) - The Avengers takes the cake with a running time of two hours and 23 minutes. It is, however, the longest Marvel solo debut. According to IMDb, it ties with X-Men 2 in terms of length,

Rose Byrne’s Moira MacTaggert won’t be in X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Just as she did with X-Men: Days of Future Past, it seems that X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Apocalypse star Rose Byrne will be sitting out the next – and possibly final – instalment of 20th Century Fox’s main X-Men series, X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

“Unfortunately, Moira MacTaggert is not showing up,” Byrne told CinemaBlend . “I wish she was. I had such fun on X-Men: Apocalypse. I love that cast. It is a really fun, what do you call it? Superhero film… ensemble exactly. I can’t wait to see what [Jessica Chastain] does, cause I’m such a fan.”

Moira MacTaggert may be absent, but writer-director Simon Kinberg has previously revealed that the movie will have a heavy focus on its female characters, which includes Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey, Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique, and Jessica Chastain’s mystery villain, referred to in the first look photos as ‘Smith’.
