Cameras are still rolling on “Deadpool 2,” but that isn’t keeping Ryan Reynolds off social media.

It’s been a decade since we stopped hearing the words coming out of the mouths of Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in the “Rush Hour” franchise. The series was popular, but I didn’t realize it was still a reference point, but apparently “Deadpool 2” will rolling with that kind of vibe. “Deadpool” creator Rob Liefeld had a chat with Comic Book at San Diego Comic Con about the upcoming sequel.

While San Diego Comic Con didn’t bring any previews for next summer’s “Deadpool 2,” it’s not going to take much to get fans into theaters. 20th Century Fox‘s breakout superhero hit changed the landscape, proving that spandex flicks could take R-rated risks.

Now that Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy are officially back in the “X-Men” universe, 20th Century Fox are getting aggressive with their slate of Marvel movies. Today, the studio announced placeholder dates for six untitled Marvel films. This is on top of the three upcoming X-Men movies scheduled for 2018 we already know are coming: “New Mutants,” “Deadpool 2” and “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” (there is a fourth Untitled Marvel project on Fox’s schedule for February 2019, but it’s unclear if that date still stands) What could these films be?

While “Deadpool” made big piles of money, and was declared the proof of concept that you could step well outside the superhero sandbox, take a risk, and have it pay off handsomely, let’s just say the movie wasn’t for me. I have very little interest in the follow-up, but now Ryan Reynolds and co. have provided one reason I might watch the sequel one day, even if it’s on an airplane.

Looks like someone was logging some overtime this weekend. 20th Century Fox has been busy this morning announcing future dates for their 2018 roster. First it was FOUR (yes, four) “Avatar” films starting in 2020 (about five years or so behind schedule), now the studio has revealed the near future of its “X-Men” universe. While all dates were previously just “Untitled Fox / Marvel Film” placeholders, each one has been revealed. Continue reading ‘Deadpool 2’ & Two More ‘X-Men’ Films Dated For 2018 at The Playlist.

As per usual, the internet was once again wrong about the casting for “Deadpool 2.” While reports surfaced a couple weeks back that Michael Shannon was the frontrunner to play Cable, with “Stranger Things” star David Harbour also in the mix (and overtures made to Brad Pitt and Russell Crowe), none of those names have landed the gig. Continue reading Josh Brolin Is Cable In ‘Deadpool 2’ at The Playlist.

Just like any other major A-list, Brad Pitt is very, very choosy, but unlike Tom Cruise and Will Smith, he doesn’t take on blockbusters very often. Prior to “World War Z” (which turned into fiasco, which likely only strengthened his resolve to be careful in selecting such projects), you’d probably have to go back to the “Ocean’s Eleven” movies for his last major franchise (not counting his handful of animated voice roles).  Continue reading Brad Pitt Reportedly Considered Playing Cable In ‘Deadpool 2’ at The Playlist.
