Fans became a little concerned about the future of Deadpool 2 when director Tim Miller, an integral part of the success of the first movie, departed the sequel following creative differences with star and producer Ryan Reynolds.

With Ryan Reynolds recently being named Entertainment Weekly’s Entertainer of the Year, the actor sat down with the magazine to discuss the sequel, his excitement for the new director, and a resistance to making the follow-up bigger than the first.

After spending much of Deadpool trying to find Francis, it looks like the Merc’s next job will be to track down a new director for Deadpool 2. Tim Miller, who helmed the first film and was expected to return for the sequel, has dropped out due to creative differences with star Ryan Reynolds. Read More »
It’s crazy to think that we now live in a time where an R-rated Deadpool movie is now one of the most successful movies of the year. It took years to get the character who was so grossly mistreated in X-Men Origins: Wolverine into his own movie, but the dedication of Ryan Reynolds, writers Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick and director Tim Miller kept it alive. However, the fans also had a key part in convincing 20th Century Fox to finally take a chance on an R-rated superhero.
Thankfully, the gamble paid off, and one of the main reasons for that success is the unique marketing onslaught that Deadpool brought everywhere. The Merc with a Mouth’s traditional breaking of the fourth wall allowed for some of the most unique advertising we’ve seen from a blockbuster in recent memory, so much that it’s been nominated for a Clio Award, which recognizes innovation and creative excellence in advertising, design and communication.
In traditional Deadpool fashion, the nomination is being accepted by Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, praising the movie marketing for no less than five minutes. But beware, because the video is very much NSFW, just like the movie Read More »
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.

Everyone here in the United States got to see Deadpool back in February, and even if you didn’t catch it in theaters, it’s been available on home video for about a month now. But over in Japan, audiences just got to see the Merc with a Mouth on the big screen when it arrived on June 1. In addition, they’re also still waiting to see X-Men: Apocalypse when it arrives on August 11.
What’s cool is that despite the long wait to see these movies after they’ve hit the US, our friends in Japan get to see some fun cross-promotional marketing featuring Deadpool popping up after the new X-Men: Apocalypse trailer. Even more amusing is that the Merc with a Mouth actually throws some shade on 20th Century Fox.

There may not be a film as surprisingly satisfying that exceeds so many expectations as Deadpool. The movie took 11 years to get off the ground after the character was thrown onto the screen carelessly in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and for fans who wanted to see the real Merc with a Mouth on the big screen, it was well worth the wait.
Now that Deadpool has hit Blu-Ray and DVD as of yesterday, it’s time for Honest Trailers to step in and do some mocking of their own. But as we’ve seen, Deadpool doesn’t follow anybody’s rules, he invades his own Honest Trailer to mock himself. And yes, Ryan Reynolds really stepped in to do some voiceover for the Deadpool Honest Trailer, complete with his own movie trailer voice.
