Will we ever get to see Ryan Reynolds in a hard-R rated Deadpool movie? It’s a question fans have been asking literally for years. The script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick leaked online some time ago, and everyone involved is so proud of it, they subtly encourage fans to download, read and champion it. Even so, the film is far from a safe bet for 20th Century Fox, which owns the character. So even though a ton of directors have been attached — Tim Miller is the current one — the film seems to remain as far away from production as ever.
Or, maybe not. In a new interview, Reynolds teased fans by saying, in recent weeks, the film has taken some “very, very small tiptoes forward.” What could that mean? Read the quotes and discuss below. Read More »

Every few weeks we hear the same thing about the hypothetical Deadpool movie. We hear the script is great, but incredibly hard-R, and no one is willing to move ahead because of that. The script in question is the work of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, writers who exploded on the scene with the 2009 film Zombieland and penned this week’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation. We spoke to the duo about G.I. Joe earlier this week, so check back for that, but I also had to bring up Deadpool.
Reese and Wernick confirmed that star Ryan Reynolds and director Tim Miller are both still on board, the test footage is amazing, they’ve discussed the project with 20th Century Fox’s Marvel mastermind Mark Millar and casually mentioned that the script can be found online, almost inviting fans to read it and tell executives they want to see the movie.
Read their quotes below and check back later this week to hear about death, rewrites and main characters in G.I. Joe Retaliation. Read More »

It seems like just about every hot young star these days gets to tackle a superhero franchise, but Ryan Reynolds is the rare actor who has three under his belt. Unfortunately, none of them have quite worked out for him. Blade: Trinity didn’t have any successive sequels, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, in which he played Wade Wilson a.k.a. Deadpool, was a critically panned box office disappointment, and Green Lantern fared even worse on both fronts.
Nevertheless, Reynolds remains enthusiastic about the upcoming Deadpool movie, which he reveals will actually acknowledge how terrible X-Men Origins: Wolverine was. He seems somewhat less excited, however, about the impending Justice League film, in which he says he has “very little interest.” Hit the jump to read his comments.

Newly anointed 20th Century Fox Marvel guru Mark Millar has had that job for less than a month and in that time he’s already proved his worth in quotes. As is usually with the boisterous comic book creator, he’s had no problem talking about the three main Marvel properties currently in different stages of development at Fox: The Wolverine directed by James Mangold, Fantastic Four directed by Josh Trank and X-Men: Days of Future Past, directed by Matthew Vaughn. And while the first film is already shooting and the second is still a ways off, the sequel to X-Men: First Class should be the next one to go into production.
Millar spoke to SFX Magazine about the film and called it “X-Men” meets “The Terminator,” confirming that it has robots in it. Can you say Sentinels? Also, another Marvel property in development at Fox, Deadpool, gets a brief update from its director, Tim Miller. Read about all of this after the jump. Read More »
