Deadpool writers

Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick cared deeply about Deadpool. The two screenwriters behind Zombieland spent six years on the project, on and (mostly) off. Even when the odds of the comic book movie getting made appeared dire, they stuck with it, firmly believing in the character and director Tim Miller‘s vision. Once 20th Century Fox gave the project the greenlight, they wouldn’t pay to have “the real heroes” of Deadpool to be on set, but the film’s star and producer, Ryan Reynolds, was more than willing to pay them himself.

Natalie Portman Star Wars prequels

Since starring in the Star Wars prequels, Natalie Portman has given birth to a son who’s now really into Star Wars. You might think that’d make her kid the one Star Wars fan who really digs the prequels — at least he’s pre-disposed to like one of the main characters, which is more than a lot of fans can say — but according to Portman that’s not the case. In fact, she said, she hasn’t allowed her son to even watch them. Find out why below.  Read More »

John Oliver superhero movie

At this point, even the most devoted comic book fan might be getting tired of DC and Marvel movies. This month’s Suicide Squad was the fifth such film this year, following X-Men: ApocalypseCaptain America: Civil WarBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Deadpool, and we’ve still got Doctor Strange coming this fall. Fortunately, John Oliver is here to help.

In a web exclusive video for Last Week Tonight, Oliver empathizes with your exhaustion and suggests the solution might be… another superhero movie. Specifically, his own superhero movie, Johnny Strong, based on a character he created in fifth grade. I’m not sure this is actually the best way to combat superhero movie fatigue, but not gonna lie, I would watch the crap out of a superhero movie starring John Oliver. Watch the John Oliver superhero movie pitch below.  Read More »
