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.

Now, in Shocking Tales of Internet Malfeasance, Gilberto Sanchez, the guy who uploaded a workprint of X-Men Origins: Wolverine back in 2009, has pleaded guilty to felony copyright infringement. He won’t be sentenced until September 19, so we’ll have to wait to see if he does time or only has to pay a fine. The penalty is up to three years in jail and a $250,000 fine.
Meanwhile, while the film was leaked out of a post-production facility and ended up sold in bootleg form on New York City streets — which is how Gilberto Sanchez got his copy — we still don’t know who actually leaked the film, or from where. Fox probably knows and isn’t saying. Because while it sucks for Fox that the film was illegally uploaded to the internet, admitting that the post-production process is rife with leaks and chances for theft would just be embarrassing.

Read that below. Read More »
