It’s time to put down the chimichangas and get back to work. Ryan Reynolds and his merry band of mutants are looking to recapture the bleepin’ magic in Deadpool 2. After getting off to a bumpy start with the firing of director Tim Miller, the sequel to the 2016 blockbuster is humming along under the stewardship of new helmer David Leitch (John Wick). In addition to the returning players, the new film, due out June 1, 2018, adds fan-favorite character Cable (Josh Brolin), among others. ...
Screenwriting duo Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick had a very good 2016. For their next act, Reese and Wernick (whose other credits include Zombieland and G.I.

The Merc with a Mouth will have plenty of crime-fighting company in Deadpool 2. Star Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter today to announce that Zazie Beetz, who plays Donald Glover’s ex-girlfriend/baby-mama on the hit FX comedy Atlanta, has joined the cast as fellow mutant mercenary Domino. Domino first popped up in Marvel comic books in the early 1990s.
Ryan Reynolds tweeted a short “For Your Consideration” video for Deadpool on Thursday evening following nominations for the film from the WGA, PGA and DGA in recent weeks. The film has been racking up nominations, shocking many, including a Best Comedy or Musical nomination from the Golden Globes last weekend as well as a Best Actor nom for Reynolds. It lost both to La La Land, as Ryan Gosling’s jazz pianist beat out Reynold’s merc with a mouth.
At last, Hugh Jackman has returned the burn he got courtesy of Ryan Reynolds in ‘Deadpool’. Jackman chose the occasion of Reynolds receiving his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to deliver his dazzling comeback.

A raft of thespians really made the effort to become unrecognisable for roles in 2016, whether through over-eating (McConaughey), heavy prosthetics (Downton’s Dan Stevens for ‘Beauty and the Beast’) or simply just bad eyebrows (John Travolta in ‘The People Vs O.J. Simpson). Here are a few more of the best.

It’s a running joke throughout the none-more-meta superhero comedy that budget and contracts prevent Deadpool from interacting with his more A-list Marvel stablemates – Deadpool himself frequently references X-Men that Fox didn’t allow us to see. Yes, the same turbine-powered mobile aircraft carrier as used by the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D.. Fox weren’t allowed to reference the carrier by name, and the design had to be tweaked a little, but ‘Deadpool’ visual artist Emmanuel Shiu confirmed the connection.
Ryan Reynolds has revealed that ‘Deadpool’s’ editing was beset with “scary fights” as the creative team tried to get the film just right. Reynolds made this admission to GQ after he was named the magazine’s 2016 Man Of The Year, which is mostly down to how ‘Deadpool’ stormed the box office when it was released earlier this year. It was the most passionate group of individuals I’ve ever worked with in my life,” Reynolds admitted.
There have been a lot of problems with ‘Deadpool 2’ over the last few weeks. Not just that, but it’s also been reported that the third solo instalment for the character will see him pair up with another team from the ‘X-Men’ franchise, X-Force. The X-Force are a more aggressive and militant version of the X-Men, and their ensemble has in the past included Psylocke, who was played by Olivia Munn in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’, as well as Deadpool, Domino and Cable, both of whom are already confirmed for ‘Deadpool 2’.
Just when we thought the future of ‘Deadpool’ was looking rosy, its director Tim Miller has left the project. Deadline have revealed that due to creative differences Miller has left the project, which comes as quite a blow to the beginning of what was shaping to be a lucrative franchise. Having directed the 2015 hit, Miller was on board to helm the sequel which would see Ryan Reynolds return as the foul-mouthed, quick talking merc, Deadpool, but it appears their working relationship is now over.
Deadpool has been incessantly shooting off his trap — as Deadpool is wont to do — over the past few weeks in the ramp up to his titular movie, out Feb. 12. Among the most notable targets of Ryan Reynolds’s mouthy alter ego: Wolverine. Specifically, the 2009 movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine, where the Marvel mercernary made his first big-screen appearance alongside Hugh Jackman’s hirsute hero.
Ryan Reynolds may have cried tears of joy when he saw the suit his character uses for the movie Deadpool, but it needs one small change. In a press conference in Taipei on Friday (22 Jan), the 39-year-old actor said it had initially taken him 45 minutes to get in and out of the costume, although towards the end of filming he had cut that time down to 10 with “some shortcuts”. “If we ever do a sequel, which I hope we do, the first thing I’m going to say… is ‘you have to find a way to let me pee quickly’,” Reynolds said with a laugh.
Ryan Reynolds is on a hot streak. After big-budget bombs like The Green Lantern and R.I.P.D., the 38-year-old Canadian has a string of promising new movies on the way: His gambling drama Mississippi Grind was a hit at the Sundance Film Festival, he’s got a well-reviewed dark comedy called The Voices coming out on Friday, and he’s going to star in a 2016 standalone Deadpool movie, hoisting the katana swords again as his mouthy mercenary from X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Reynolds recently spoke to Yahoo Movies about all the voices in The Voices, the resurrection of Deadpool, and the lessons he’s learned from his big-budget busts.
