Tony-winning actress and fan favorite will reprise her role as roommate to Wade Wilson (a.k.a., Deadpool) in sequel to blockbuster hit
Superstar actors swear up a storm in high-octane first trailer for upcoming action comedy, in cinemas August.
‘Life’, the ‘Alien’-inspired sci-fi thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds, may get the sequel treatment, if its writers have anything to do with it. There are certainly doubts over ‘Life’s franchise potential, but wrtier Rhett Reese still has an idea about how the story could continue. At the end of the film, surviving astronauts David (Gyllenhaal) and Miranda (Rebecca Ferguson) try and fail to contain and destroy the alien beastie that’s killed their friends and trashed the International Space Station.
From his days on 'Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place' to 'Deadpool' last year and now the space thriller, track his evolution to 40 year-old father-of-two
‘Life’, Sony Pictures’ genuinely terrifying new sci-fi thriller, hits cinemas today and to celebrate we’ve got two brand new videos to share with you. First is a new featurette – above – that explains the threat posed by the alien creature brought on board the International Space Station by the crew. The space craft receives the cellular organism from a Mars rover, but things quickly go south when the crew bring the creature to life through experimentation.
It looks as though the cast for ‘Deadpool 2’ is one step closer to being confirmed, because just a few days after it was announced that ‘Atlanta’s’ Zazie Beetz has been cast as Domino it has now emerged that Michael Shannon is the frontrunner to play Cable. Both The Hollywood Reporter and Variety have alleged that the Academy Award nominated actor is currently leading the shortlist for the role, which also includes ‘Stranger Things’s’ David Harbour. The casting of Cable in ‘Deadpool 2’ has been quite a contentious issue.
Reynolds and Gyllenhaal have spent the last few weeks conducting numerous interviews to support the sci-fi horror film. Just look at the recent interview they conducted with Fox 5, which saw Reynolds and Gyllenhaal handed ‘Deadpool’ pins, only for the latter to immediately throw his away in disgust.
2016 was an eventful year for comic book movies, with an array of successes, disappointments, and downright disasters. ‘Deadpool’ was one 2016’s success stories. While the first film’s writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were talking to Comicbook.com about their new sci-fi-horror ‘Life’, the pair commented on how ‘Deadpool 2’ would be cast imminently.
‘Deadpool 2’ may be getting off the ground somewhat slower than initially expected, but it looks like we have the first confirmed new casting for the offbeat superhero sequel. The man himself, Ryan Reynolds, put an end to months of rumour and speculation on Thursday, by taking to Twitter and revealing the name of the actress set to portray Domino. Yes, this means that Zazie Beetz has been cast as Domino, emerging victorious against such stiff competition as Lizzy Caplan, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Sienna Miller (although apparently not Janelle Monáe, rumoured to have been in the running earlier this week).
The immensely pleasing mock-rivalry between Ryan Reynolds – aka Deadpool – and Hugh Jackman – aka Wolverine – continues apace. And with Jackman out on the road promoting his latest X-Men outing ‘Logan’, it’s provided Reynolds with a bit of an open goal. Jackman dropped a few snaps over the weekend of the movie’s premiere in Beijing, picturing him with fans.

According to Collider, it looks as though ‘Daredevil’ creator Drew Goddard has been working on the ‘Deadpool 2’ script… but the original writers are still in the driving seat. “Over the past few months, the original Deadpool writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, have been hard at work trying to craft the sequel,” they explained. “From what I’ve been told, Reese and Wernick are still extremely involved in the script,” they added.
Traditionally a very light-hearted event – famously when Helen Mirren was named Woman of the Year in 2014, the national treasure was persuaded to twerk on stage – it’s small wonder that Reynolds, still hot in Hollywood after the success of ‘Deadpool,’ would also get into the spirit of things. As such, the 40-year old Canadian actor happily accepted his award whilst wearing a custom made Deadpool bra – over his tuxedo, alas.
‘Deadpool’ screenwriters Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese have confirmed that, contrary to recent rumours, we definitely won’t be seeing Ryan Reynolds as the merc with the mouth in the upcoming ‘Logan’ – but they don’t rule out a Deadpool/Wolverine crossover in the future. Speaking to The Playlist, Reese firmly states the rumoured ‘Logan’ cameo is “not happening. The tones are just too different.
Ryan Reynolds has reacted to his superhero hit ‘Deadpool’ receiving no love from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences when the organisation announced the 2017 Oscar nominations earlier today (24 January). The effervescent R-Rated X-Men spin-off was building up some steam in the run-up to the announcement following nominations at the Golden Globes.
Tom Cruise may be up for the role of the Green Lantern. According to The Wrap, the 54-year-old megastar is at the top of DC’s shortlist for the role of Hal Jordan in their upcoming ‘Green Lantern Corps’ movie. “Tom Cruise, Joel McHale, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds, Armie Hammer, and Jake Gyllenhaal are on the shortlist of actors DC Entertainment is considering pursuing for the role of Hal Jordan in ‘Green Lantern Corps’,” they revealed.
‘Deadpool 2’ writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have divulged some new details about the upcoming superhero sequel, discussing the process of writing the sequel and major new character Cable. Collider asked how that has affected the writing process.
If you enjoyed the giant metal Russian and the sullen adolescent Sinead O’Connor/Ripley from ‘Alien³’ lookalike in 2016’s ‘Deadpool,’ you’ll be glad to hear they’ll be joining the Merc with a Mouth in the sequel.
Ryan Reynolds tweeted a short “For Your Consideration” video for Deadpool on Thursday evening following nominations for the film from the WGA, PGA and DGA in recent weeks. The film has been racking up nominations, shocking many, including a Best Comedy or Musical nomination from the Golden Globes last weekend as well as a Best Actor nom for Reynolds. It lost both to La La Land, as Ryan Gosling’s jazz pianist beat out Reynold’s merc with a mouth.
Andrew Garfield and Ryan Reynolds’ kiss was easily the highlight of the entire Golden Globes ceremony, as both actors took solace in each other after missing out in their respective Best Actor categories. After the Golden Globes had finally come to an end, Reynolds and Garfield’s smooch was the talk of Tinseltown.
Spider-Man and Deadpool made out at the Golden Globes last night. As Ryan Gosling made his way to the stage to collect his award for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical for his role in ‘La La Land’, the camera panned past the table where Ryan Reynolds was seated next to Andrew Garfield. Reynolds, also nominated for ‘Deadpool’ in the best category, consoled himself by planting a huge smacker on the lips of former ‘Spider-Man’ star Andrew Garfield.
