The Deadpool sequel is going to be bigger than its predecessor, but not too much bigger. Star Ryan Reynolds and screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have stressed the importance of not forgetting what makes the first movie work — character. Thinking about Deadpool, the set pieces aren’t what immediately come to mind; it’s the foul-mouth, flawed hero and the small group of people he surrounds himself with. It’s a superhero movie with plenty of interior scenes and only a handful of main characters. With the sequel, Deadpool is going to have to make a little more room for “a lot of characters.”
Below, learn more about the Deadpool sequel, Cable, and Reese and Wernick’s thoughts on an X-Men crossover.

One of the big surprises of this awards season so far has been Deadpool‘s emergence as the scrappy little superhero movie that could. While its Golden Globe nomination wasn’t entirely unexpected, its Writers Guild nomination raised a few eyebrows. And now the Merc’s managed to wrangle himself a Producers Guild nomination as well.
Otherwise, it’s business as usual for the PGA nominations, which also went to favorites like La La Land and Moonlight. See the full list of 2017 PGA nominations below. Read More »

By this point in the season, we’ve got a rough idea of how the awards race is shaping up. La La Land, Moonlight, and Manchester by the Sea are already looking like Oscar frontrunners despite the fact that the actual Oscar nominations won’t be announced for another few weeks, and films with that kind of momentum tend to rack up a whole bunch of other prizes on the way. So of course all three have been nominated for the Writers Guild Awards, along with some of the other usual suspects like Fences and Arrival.
But every once in a while, the universe likes to throw us for a loop. Today, a big surprise has come bursting in through the fourth wall to curse up a storm. Yup, Deadpool has managed to snag a Best Adapted Screenplay nom at the WGAs, beating out more expected contenders like Silence, Sully, and Hacksaw Ridge. Find the full list of 2017 WGA nominations below. Read More »
