Zazie Beetz, who stars in FX’s Atlanta and made a big impact in theaters earlier this year as the lucky superhero Domino in Deadpool 2, attended ACE Comic Con in Chicago this past weekend. During a Q&A session, the actress revealed that before she snagged the role of Domino, she auditioned to play Storm in X-Men: Apocalypse. Read Beetz’s full quote below. Read More »
Before the weekend kicked off, the surprise news came from 20th Century Fox that an Untitled Deadpool Movie would suddenly be dropping into the December 21, 2018 release date that was once occupied by Alita: Battle Angel. Word on the street is that instead of being an entirely new Deadpool movie, this will be a PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2, and a photo posted online by Ryan Reynolds would seem to indicate how that’s going to work, and it involves Fred Savage reprising his role from The Princess Bride.

Since the character of Deadpool already makes fun of himself and is self-referential enough to take the wind out of the sails of a movie mocking web series like Honest Trailers (not to mention appearing in his own Honest Trailer for the first movie), there’s only one thing to do: bring in Deadpool to make fun of Honest Trailers.

It’s actually pretty clever. Read More »
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. Check out the Deadpool 2 Fantastic Four concept art below. Read More »

Terry Crews was on a Television Critics Association panel for Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which was rescued by NBC after being cancelled by Fox. He’s also had a big summer with roles in the indie darling Sorry to Bother You and the mega Blockbuster Deadpool 2.
Both movie roles are sort of cameos. In Sorry, he plays the uncle in whose garage Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) is living. In Deadpool 2, Crews played Bedlam, a member of the X-Force that Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) recruits. Spoilers for Deadpool 2 follow, but we found out whether Bedlam can return and why Crews feels a little guilty for his role in the film’s deceptive (but hilarious) marketing.

Normally superheroes movies take themselves seriously enough that they’re easy targets for cracking jokes from the people behind How It Should Have Ended. But when you’re dealing with a wise-cracking, fourth wall-breaking, self-aware character liker Deadpool, you’ve gotta raise the bar a little bit. Thankfully, even though the jokes don’t land as well as those in Deadpool 2, the imagined scenes that might have made things a little easier on all our characters keep it from being a dud. Read More »
