We’ve known what Ryan Reynolds would look like as Deadpool for quite a while — since the leak of the test footage that ultimately helped green light the film, and pushed away the image of the character from X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But it’s only now cameras are rolling on Deadpool that we’re getting to see some of the other colorful characters who populate his world.
Now we have the first official look at the delightfully named Negasonic Teenage Warhead, played by newcomer Brianna Hildebrand. Meanwhile, set photos have surfaced of Colossus, which is interesting because no actor has been announced for the role as of yet. Click through for the Deadpool Negasonic pics and more. Read More »

As those who’ve been following our coverage know, Deadpool is now shooting in Vancouver with Ryan Reynolds in the title role. He’s playing the smart-assed and red-suited mercenary created by Fabian Nicieza and artist Rob Liefeld — a character who gets a second chance on the big screen after his fairly dismal first outing in the first Wolverine film. A number Deadpool set photos, drawn from today’s shoot, have gone online thanks to various social media outlets. Through them you can see how this second cinematic take for the character looks. (Hint: pretty great.) Read More »
Early Wednesday morning, one of the news stories I assumed was an April Fools joke was over on JoBlo.com. Their article said they exclusively confirmed the Deadpool movie was going to be PG-13. My thought was, “The movie is still filming. How could they possibly have a rating already?” Sure, maybe they could aim for a PG-13 but they couldn’t guarantee that until the MPAA saw a final cut of the movie. A believable, but obvious, April Fools Joke.
Well, it turns out not only was that story was a joke, it was officially orchestrated by 20th Century Fox to prove the opposite. A video has now made it online that looks like an Extra interview with Ryan Reynolds from the set of Deadpool but isn’t what it seems. At the end, you’ll know for sure Deadpool will be rated R.

OK, Ryan Reynolds, you got me. The actor shared the first official image of his Deadpool costume today, and it’s a shot that Burt Reynolds would really approve of. So naturally we love it, too. The shot really lets you see the details of the Deadpool movie costume, and also the attitude of Reynolds’ so-called “Merc With a Mouth.” It’s pretty much the perfect single-image intro to the character.

Mark it on your calendar, Deadpool fans. March 19, 2015 is the day we saw the first images from the set of a Deadpool movie. Stars Ryan Reynolds and Morena Baccarin both tweeted out images of their set chairs with a makeshift, paint-splattered logo marking the start of production.
It’s been a long road for the film, which was first announced in 2009 and sat in development hell until the test footage shot for the then head of 20th Century Fox leaked online. Fox then saw the fan desire for the film and put it on the fast track.
Deadpool will be released February 12, 2016 and below you can see the Deadpool movie filming images. Read More »

Ryan Reynolds has seen first-hand the backlash against the poor on-screen handling of a fan-favorite character. Reynolds played a version of Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine that was not much at all like the core version of Deadpool, and fans were quick to blast the film’s character revisions. For the new Deadpool film, which begins shooting soon with Reynolds again playing the character, the actor says hard-core Deadpool fans should be able to embrace the new vision of the merc with a mouth.

Tuesday morning, 200 journalists got LG phones delivered to their front doors. On them, text messages teased a future where human beings can transfer their consciousness into a younger body. Eventually, those teases lead to a video link. The trailer to a movie. It is Self/Less, the latest film from Tarsem Singh.
In the film, Ben Kingsley plays a dying man who transfers his consciousness into the body of Ryan Reynolds. However, Kingsley’s mind begins to realize the truth about where Reynolds body came from and the sci-fi action and suspense begins. Watch the first Self/Less trailer below.

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. Check out the Ryan Reynolds Deadpool tweet and more below. Read More »
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.
