That a new Millar book would be immediately optioned is so obvious that the latest Millar comic Chrononauts, which was released just this week, featured a letter in the “letters to the editors” pages speculating about the possible feature film adaptation. And days later we learn a movie is indeed in the works at Universal. More details on the Chrononauts movie adaptation after the jump.

Mark it on your calendar, Deadpool fans. March 19, 2015 is the day we saw the first images from the set of a Deadpool movie. Stars Ryan Reynolds and Morena Baccarin both tweeted out images of their set chairs with a makeshift, paint-splattered logo marking the start of production.

Deadpool will be released February 12, 2016 and below you can see the Deadpool movie filming images. Read More »
