Last week when we heard Colossus would show up in Deadpool (not exactly a surprise, as he’s in the script that the screenwriters encouraged people to read months ago) we wondered if Daniel Cudmore would return for the role. He’s played the character a few times already, in films like X-Men 2, X-Men: The Last Stand, and X-Men: Days of Future Past. But now Cudmore himself says he’s not doing the gig.
Which leads us to wonder: with Colossus recast, does this mean we’ll see the character in new or different form in X-Men: Apocalypse? Read More »
The Deadpool movie will basically ignore the existence of the first solo Wolverine movie, but the new film won’t forget the character’s roots in Marvel Comics stories featuring mutant characters. Ryan Reynolds is again playing Deadpool, and now he’ll be joined by Gina Carano, who’ll turn up in the film as Angel Dust, a mutant character who has been part of the Morlocks in Marvel Comics stories. In addition, a major X-Men supporting character will have a part in the story as well. Read More »
This Valentine’s Day weekend, you can choose between BDSM and spies. Next year, it’s a wisecracking superhero in a skin tight costume. Deadpool, directed by Tim Miller and based on the ultra popular mutant Marvel character, hits theaters one year from Thursday, February 12, 2016. Ryan Reynolds will play the character, a deadly assassin with superhuman healing abilities and a penchant for breaking the fourth wall. To tease fans on this milestone, Reynolds put up a photo from pre-production on the film and the charcter’s creator, Rob Liefeld, offered up a few teases too.

Talk of a Deadpool movie has been around since before the turn of the decade. In 2009, rumors began to circulate that writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were going to pen a script for the film. They did, and the character even appeared on screen that year in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But for years after that, very little happened with the movie. Director Tim Miller was hired, we heard rumblings here and there, but it felt dead. It got to a point where Reese and Wernick were openly hinting to people that they should read the script, which had leaked online.
Then, almost out of the blue, the Deadpool movie got a greenlight and a February 12, 2016 release date. What was the change? Was it a tamer rating? A lower budget? Maybe, but star Ryan Reynolds says the main reason is fan reaction to the leaked test footage. Read more about the Deadpool movie below.
Update: There’s now a list of women who are testing for a key role in the film; we’ve got that below along with Reynolds’ comments.
