Deadpool 2 Hope Summers

We’re still in the dark about what Ryan Reynolds‘ motor-mouthed mercenary will be up to in Deadpool 2, but there may be a clue buried in the new photos of some of his fellow mutants. We know Atlanta’s Zazie Beetz is playing an assassin named Domino, and Josh Brolin (Avengers: Infinity War) is suiting up as the time-traveling badass Cable, but the recently-released first look photos of Cable just might hint at an aspect of the story we could see play out, and it involves Cable’s surrogate daughter, Hope Summers.

The Dark Tower Trailer Breakdown 20

(Welcome to Movie Mixtape, where we find cinematic relatives and seek out interesting connections between new releases and older movies that allow us to rethink and enjoy what’s in our theaters as well as the favorites on our shelf. In this edition: The Dark Tower.)

The Dark Tower is a mystery. It’s an adaptation/kinda sequel to a series of Stephen King books that act as an expansive corpus of multi-world fantasy that has the epitome of a cult following. There are thirty years between the first and last published books, and it’s been ten years of development to bring this to theaters – enough time to take us from J.J. Abrams with Javier Bardem and Viggo Mortensen to Nikolaj Arcel with Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba.

There’s no telling what this thing is gonna be like. Even the trailers only offer a glimpse that’s shoot-out heavy and suggests that our world is at stake if the tower falls. To be blunt, they make the movie seem generic, and the books are anything but.

So what do you pair with something like that? Let’s stick with the fantastical, the adventurous, and the bullet-riddled, but I’d love to hear your suggestions in the comments section.
