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. Continue reading ‘Deadpool 2’ Adds ‘Hunt For The Wilderpeople’ Star Julian Dennison at The Playlist.
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.
It’s been a long, sometimes rocky road to “Deadpool 2,” but it looks like things are starting to roll more smoothly. Fans got a very early teaser/short sketch film to hold them over for now, and the movie has finally found a Domino in Zazie Beetz. However, Cable remains another big character to cast, and a new name has entered the mix for the role.

After months of speculation, rumors, frontrunners, shortlists and lots of guesswork, Domino has finally been cast in “Deadpool 2.” But naturally, it’s a name that was on nobody’s radar. Ryan Reynolds himself revealed that Zazie Beetz has joined the blockbuster sequel, in what is easily her most high profile role to date. The actress is perhaps best known as Van on the hit FX series “Atlanta,” but you also might’ve seen in her in a couple of episodes of Joe Swanberg‘s Netflix series “Easy.” Either way, she’s about to see a huge leap in attention and she’ll be taking quite a ride on the comic book train. Continue reading ‘Deadpool 2’ Finally Casts Domino at The Playlist.
The secret is out, and unless you’ve managed to stay away from internet, you probably know that in North America at least, fans heading into cinemas for “Logan” are getting a bonus treat with a “surprise” teaser for “Deadpool 2.” Of course, it didn’t take long for crappy mobile phone rips to start floating around the web, but the official version has now landed. Since the sequel is still casting and hasn’t started filming, this is not a trailer, but a bonus scene of sorts, with Deadpool attempting to save a man from being mugged, but being foiled by taking far too long to change into his costume Superman-style in a phone booth. Continue reading Ryan Reynolds Does No Good Deed In First Teaser For ‘Deadpool 2’ at The Playlist.
It took more than a decade of grinding it out both on television and at the movies, but David Harbour finally got the due he deserved and a helluva a role in last year’s breakout Netflix hit, “Stranger Things.” As a result, more doors are likely opening for the actor, though he’s no stranger to blockbusters, having popped up in “Suicide Squad,” “The Green Hornet,” “Quantum Of Solace,” and “The Equalizer.” Still, none of those projects are “Deadpool 2.” READ MORE: What Will Be The Biggest Box Office Blockbuster Of 2017?
