It's probably time to take a long, hard look in the mirror when people are telling you that your physique might be a shade too girthy for you to play a morbidly obese supervillain.
After an international search, the final New Mutant has been found. Blu Hunt, a relative newcomer who appeared in a handful of episodes of The Originals, has nabbed the lead role of Danielle Moonstar, the Native American telepath, in Josh Boone’s X-Men spinoff, New Mutants. The Fox movie has been casting up in recent weeks with the roll call including The Witch and Split star Anya Taylor-Joy, Game of Thrones‘ Maisie Williams, and Stranger Things star Charlie Heaton.
“Stranger Things” star Charlie Heaton is in negotiations to join X-Men spinoff “New Mutants” for Fox and Marvel as Sam Guthrie, a.k.a. Cannonball. “New Mutants” is in pre-production and has been set for an April 13, 2018, opening. “The Fault in Our Stars” director Josh Boone is helming “New Mutants” from a script he co-wrote...

Spoof movie series on YouTube takes crack at 'Logan,' finds it not so easy to skewer, calls in Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds — who can't add much snark
An Indonesian artist has admitted hiding secret protest messages in a new volume of the X-Men comics, protesting Jakarta's Christian governor.
Thus, the film’s in-production sequel has plenty to live up to in the combat department, which may help explain why Fox hired stuntman-turned-director David Leitch — he of John Wick fame — to helm the highly anticipated follow-up. For those not in the know, 87Eleven Action Design is the gym/stuntwork studio/production company hybrid founded by Leitch and fellow John Wick co-director Chad Stahelski (who just directed John Wick 2).
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).
Spoilers! Major, huge spoilers for ‘Logan’ follow, so be warned and turned back if you’re yet to see the critically acclaimed superhero drama. ‘Logan’ director James Mangold has confirmed that he sowed the seeds for the new film’s heart-rending ending four years in his first X-Men spin-off ‘The Wolverine’.
Exec for Fox wing of Marvel movies says Deadpool and Cable will be part of movie that will launch X-Men offshoot X-Force — but won't say if he'll direct it
When you think of films with empowering female characters you might focus on the likes of ‘Erin Brockovich’, ‘Wild’ or ‘The Blind Side’ but in reality the role of women on screen was revolutionised, far before any of these pictures existed, with what started on the pages of a comic book. Despite being portrayed as a man in the comic books for over 50 years, Hollywood broke gender stereotypes casting the brilliant Tilda Swinton as a female version of the character.
Obviously it’s now hard to imagine anyone other than Sir Patrick Stewart playing Professor Charles Francis Xavier. Writer David Hayter – who penned the first ‘X-Men’ movie in 2000, then ‘X2’ and later Zack Snyder’s adaptation of ‘Watchmen’ – has spilled the beans on those who came close, but failed to snatch Logan’s cigar. “Michael Jackson came in because he wanted to play Professor X. It was amazing.
