When it comes to Deadpool 2, there were a lot of ideas that never came to fruition for one reason or another. For example, one idea featured Chris Evans reprising his role as Human Torch from 20th Century Fox’s 2005 adaptation of Marvel’s first family during the X-Force interview process. But it turns out that when Tim Miller was still attached to Deadpool 2, there was some kind of idea involving the entire Fantastic Four team, but not the version featuring Chris Evans.
Concept artist Alexander Lozano has posted some art from the early days of development on Deadpool 2 before director David Leitch took over the production. The art in question involves a new look for each member of the Fantastic Four from the most recent, failed 2015 adaptation from director Josh Trank.

In terms of superhero movies, does it get any better than Michelle Pfeiffer‘s performance as Selina Kyle/Catwoman in Batman Returns? And do superhero movies get any worse than 2004’s Catwoman, the laughable solo film starring Halle Berry in the title role? Those are rhetorical questions, by the way – the answer to both is clearly “no.”
In a parallel universe, the Halle Berry version movie never happened. Warner Bros. was considering making a Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman solo film in the late 1990s, and screenwriter John August (Go, Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) pitched the studio an idea. August just found his old notes for the pitch, and shared them on Twitter to give us a sense of what that movie could have been like. Read More »
Update: HBO has officially picked up Damon Lindelof’s new take on Watchmen, which isn’t an adaptation or a sequel as much as a remix of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ iconic comic book series.
