One of the Deadpool movie’s best elements was how the movie brought his mask to life. This might shock you to learn, but there was an astounding amount of work involved in making a mask that could be as expressive as it is in the comics, but that Ryan Reynolds’ could still see and talk out of.
Hello again! Sorry for last week’s absence, but you sure gave me a bunch of excellent letters, so it technically worked out for all of us. This week: Is Rey in danger from Episode IX director Colin Trevorrow? When is a time travel movie not a time travel movie? And most importantly, is Batfleck a Batcoholic?
Fox have announced the details of Deadpool’s home release on May 10th—including a commentary with co-creator Rob Liefeld. Liefeld is joined by director Tim Miller on the track, one of two included. As always with Deadpool, there’s a cute, fourth-wall-breaking image detailing all the content that you can see below.
Originality is difficult. Try to come up with an original concept and odds are, you’re just taking bits and pieces from your previous experiences to give something old a new spin. That’s the theme of Icons Unmasked, an amazing new art show by artist Alex Solis.
Usually, this sort of talk would be passed off as wild dreams that could never happen. But apparently the teams behind Deadpool and the X-Men movies have already started laying out the groundwork for this classic comics team-up to happen on the big screen.
It’s turning out to be a very good day for films everybody assumed would never happen! Tim Miller, best known for turning a foul-mouthed superhero into an R-rated blockbuster, said that the adaptation of Eric Powell’s unbelievably great comic may actually still be made, and it’s likely thanks to Deadpool’s success.
Tim Miller’s Deadpool movie is so good and so true to the character, it’s hopefully wiped out most memories you had about his first incarnation as a gooey ninja who couldn’t speak at the end of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Now the director of that film, Gavin Hood, has explained why his version was so bad and the new one…
This weekend, Deadpool earned $746 million to become the highest grossing R-rated film of all-time. But the top-grossing R-rated film in the U.S. is still Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ, which grossed $370.8 million domestically. Comparatively, Deadpool has earned $349.5 million in the U.S. ...so far.
Good day to you, one and all! (But especially the one. You know who you are.) The week you guys asked if The 100 will fix its own stupid mistake, whether the Netflix shows are too dark for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and when to tell your kid that Darth Vader is actually Luke’s father. Let’s mail it in, shall we?
Swapping in a stunt double for an actor in a superhero movie is especially easy, since masks usually hide the character’s face. But the super-human abilities of most Marvel heroes are beyond the reach of even the most talented stunt performers. That’s where digital dopplegangers come in handy.
Deadpool has been a huge success, but honestly, the most fascinating thing about it is how it’s changed the conversation about superhero movie ratings. Case in point? Suicide Squad producer Charles Roven has had defend the fact that his movie is targeting a PG-13 rating.
Greetings, pre-apocalyptic pen pals! Today we’re discussing when people will finally get sick of Star Wars, why the Legends of Tomorrow are so spectacularly bad at time travel, and the strangely awkward situation that may ensue when the Deadpool movie gets someone you love into comics.
Negasonic Teenage Warhead was put in Deadpool basically by virtue of a) being a character that wasn’t vital to the X-Men movies and b) having a really cool name. So it’s no surprise that she could have looked like pretty much anything.
For almost seven years, 20th Century Fox sat on the script for Deadpool, scared that it wouldn’t make any money. Now, two weekends after the film’s release, it’s already the highest grossing X-Men movie ever, in terms of domestic, non-adjusted box office—which is the metric everybody uses when they’re talking about…
We’re not sure what it is about this day, but bunch of different places decided to release some simply beautiful pop culture art. There’s Star Wars, Harry Potter, Mad Max, Friday the 13th, Deadpool, G.I. Joe, and more. So we’re just gonna drop it all on you at once.
Greetings and salutations, my friends! I’m back, and I couldn’t be more delighted to be back. I have a lot to catch up on, so let’s get right to it—I’ve received questions about a certain Star Wars couple, how the Deadpool movie will change the industry, why Talking Dead even exists, and the mystery of what made Leia…
The final act of Deadpool may have left out a ton of superhero stuff that proved too expensive—but there was one ginormous Marvel Universe easter egg that made it in. And we’ve got some concept art for it, exclusively at io9. Spoilers ahead, maybe?
Deadpool is a comic book movie that was a passion project for everyone involved. This meant making a superhero movie on a very small budget—and one slashed at the last second at that. A bunch of characters and scenes got the ax for budgetary reasons, but know we know everything that almost made it into the movie.
In this cool video interview, Deadpool’s soudtrack composer Tom Holkenborg explains he had a very specific vision for the film’s score: use the glorious sounds of the synth to give Ryan Reynolds’ wise-ass character an ‘80s revival canvas on which to paint his mayhem.
