Ron Pearlman wants to play Cable 

I think it’s a safe bet that most of us are eagerly anticipating Deadpool 2. Until then, we just have to make do with whatever scrap piece of news gets thrown out way. 

We all know that Cable will feature in the sequel, to the highest grossing R-rated movie of all time, but an actor has yet to be cast. Some names have been thrown around, which include; Jon Hamm, Stephen Lang, Liam Neeson, and Dolph Lundgren. Now it seems that Ron Perlman wants to throw his hat into the rink. He took to Facebook, to post a couple pictures with the comments “I’m the only one with Cable’s friggin hair!”, he has a point.

There’s no doubt in my mind, that he would make an awesome Cable. But I think he may be slightly older than they’re looking for. 

Deadpool 2 is due for release in 2017. 

Disney remove Inhumans from schedule 

Disney have officially removed Inhumans from their schedule. It had been due for release on 12th July, 2019. It currently has no release date.
This isn’t the first time the film’s release date has been changed. It was originally slated for release on 2nd November, 2018 before it was moved to the July. 

It’s entirely possible that Inhumans was removed because of the recently announced Indiana Jones 5. That’s scheduled for release on 19th July, 2019, which is just a week after Inhumans. It would make any business sense to put two Disney movies up against each other. 
Marvel’s head honcho Kevin Feige said the recent Spider-Man deal with Sony, also plays a factor in the re-shuffle. When asked about the Inhumans movie, he said:

“Since we made our initial phase three announcement, we added Spider-Man, which was a big, joyous coup for us. We added Ant-Man and the Wasp, which was a big, fun continuation of that story for us. Walt Disney Company has announced an Indiana Jones film for right around that same time. So I think it will shuffle off the current date that it’s on right now. How far down it shuffles, I’m not sure yet.”

Speculation has been rife online, that Fox and Marvel may be about to make a deal, to incorporate either the X-Men, or Fantastic Four into the MCU. Personally, I think a deal with the Fantastic Four is more likely. Fox just don’t need Marvel’s help with the X-Men and Marvel don’t need the X-Men, when they have Inhumans. The past three X-Men based films have been received well critically and, have done well at the Box Office. Deadpool is currently the highest grossing movie of all time.  

With the Fantastic Four, Fox find themselves in a similar position to Sony with Spider-Man. Do they push a head with a sequel to a film, that was poorly received. Independently reboot it for a third time, or accept a co-production deal with Marvel and reboot it into the MCU?
These posts were taken off Faceboook. They seem to be between a fan and an employee at Marvel. 

Relationships between Fox and Marvel are historically bad. Fox haven’t been allowed to sell X-Men toys since 2003 and, Marvel have mostly reduced the X-Men to background characters in the comics. 

Whatever happens, I’m sure Marvel will release a Inhumans movie at some point.  

Gambit removed from 2016 schedule

Deadpool is currently shattering box office records, it’s made over $600 Million worldwide. Fox also have X-Men: Apocalypse out this summer. However they were due to have three Marvel titles out this year, with Channing Tatum-starring as the Gajun superhero, Gambit.

Gambit was originally scheduled to be released in October this year. But the production has entered a sort of “development hell” phase. The original director Rupert Wyatt walked away last September, which caused a delay in production. In January, it was reported that production would begin in March, with Live die repeat’s Doug Liman now directing.  Alien: Covenant will now move into Gambit’s original slot.

Personally, I can’t see this movie ever happening. Fox were seeking someone with a big draw to step into Hugh Jackman’s place. They now have Deadpool and, ryan Reynolds.

Fox also revealed the release dates for two unnamed Marvel projects, October 6, 2017 and January 12, 2018. I suspect the 2018 date will be Deadpool 2.

Ryan Reynolds interviews Hugh Jackman

Hugh Jackman is currently doing the press rounds for the upcoming sports drama, Eddie the Eagle. On one of those junkets he was surprised to find Ryan Reynolds in the interview chair. Reynolds crashed the junket and asked Jackman a bunch of questions, most of which were sly digs at X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Reynolds shared the video on his YouTube channel, which you can view below.

Wolverine 3 to be R-rated?

Well, that didn’t take long. After not wanting to make the film, it looks like 20th Century Fox is set to embrace the publics desire for R-rated superheroes. Following the box office success of Deadpool; it seems the studio has confirmed that Hugh Jackman’s last adventure as Logan, in Wolverine 3 will follow the example set by Deadpool. Here’s a leaflet handed out at a Toy Fair, which reveals the rating they’re aiming for. 
It’ll be interesting to see if this actually happens, there are many superheroes that could benefit from an R-rating. Wolverine is certainly one of those. 

Stephen Lang wants to play Cable

Deadpool has been box office smash, it’s shattered records with a worldwide opening weekend of $300million. Which is more than double its $58 million budget.
After the end credits, Deadpool confirmed a sequel-which will feature iconic X-men member, Cable.
Avatar villain Stephen Lang took to Twitter today, to campaign for the role, and. He’s pretty much a perfect choice.

The release date of deadpool 2 is currently unkown, but it’s thought the studio want it to replace the original date set for Fantastic Four 2 will.
Fox have a busy schedule for their X-Men Universe, this May sees the release X-Men: Apocalypse. With the rumoured R-rated Wolverine 3 (a sequel to two films which no longer exsist) arriving in March 2017.
The studio is also developing, Gambit, The New Mutants, X-Men 7 and, two TV series set in the universe.

Film review-Deadpool 

The new Fox/Marvel superhero movie is loud, obnoxious, sarcastic, violent and sexually graphic. It’s also a tremendous lot of fun, at least for the fans. 

This has been a passion project for Ryan Reynolds for the past eleven years. But Fox never had enough confidence in the project to green light a movie. They put the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, in an attempt to garner popularity and spin the character off. However they mishandled him terribly and the project looked dead. At some point in 2014, test footage for a solo movie leaked online. It was a huge internet sensation and this movie received the green light the next day. 

The director Tim Miller’s background is in visual effects and it shows here, the opening credits fuse great action with sublime visual effects. Instead of the normal list of actors’ names, we get a tongue in cheek poke at the superhero/action movie clitches (“A Hot Chick. The comic relief. A British Villain. Directed by an overpaid douche bag”). 

Shortly after, the Merc with a Mouth breaks the fourth wall and assures the audience that this is no ordinary superhero movie, “I may be super, but I’m no hero”.

Deadpool is looney toons, but with a face full of scars and a couple of swords. It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but it will probably be your shot of Jack Daniel’s. 

New Deadpool poster

Fox have released a new poster for the upcoming Deadpool movie.
They posted it on Twitter along with this note:

“Finally, a hero with worthwhile assets.”

Deadpool stars Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein, Gina Carano, and Brianna Hildebrand and is directed by first timer-Tim Miller.

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.

Deadpool is set to be released on February 4th, 2016. 


20th Centuray Fox have released the full trailer for Deadpool, it’s just as amazing as we were hoping.
Like Ryan Reynolds, we all wanted a Deadpool that was done right, and it looks like it has been done right.
This has been a passion project for Reynolds for the past eleven years.
I’ve watched this trailer twice already, stop reading and watch.

Deadpool is set for release in February, 2016.
