‘Deadpool 2’ Now Courting Michael Shannon To Play Cable
eelyajekiM   |  

Michael Shannon might join Deadpool 2

The search for the actor to play Cable in Deadpool 2 is still on. Apparently, the list that the title character gave during the end credits wasn’t good enough. Based on previous reports, the actors currently being eyed are just as good. A couple of weeks ago, David Harbour tested for the role, while Kyle Chandler was rumored. Stephen Lang threw his own name into the hat. Michael Shannon (Zod in Man Of Steel) was also being looked at, but scheduling issues would prevent him from taking the role. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case any longer.

According to new reports, Shannon is now one of the frontrunners to play Cable. More on the story below.

Deadpool Movie Review

The rumors are very true, there is a teaser attached to the front of Logan (check out our review here), Fox’s new Wolverine film. Of course, since it is an X-Men movie the teaser has to be related to the X-Men universe. Assuming that you haven’t seen Logan yet, the teaser (it’s really more of a short) is for Deadpool 2. So, to avoid spoilers, this is your only warning, check out the video here below.

Drew Goddard is currently working with Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to put the finishing touches on the Deadpool 2 script, which promises to add new mutants Cable and Domino. While the three write the script, director David Leitch and star/producer Ryan Reynolds have yet to cast both roles.

There have been many names thrown around, and now there is a new name being added to the list. A report says that Stranger Things star David Harbour is now one of the frontrunners for the role of Cable. Check out the full report below.

The success of Deadpool proved that R-rated comic book movies could work. So in light of its success, Fox is following it up with Logan and a Deadpool sequel. The former is set to hit theaters next week, while the latter is still in the early stages of writing.

But one film Ryan Reynolds would very much like to see happen is X-Force. The actor has spoken about his interest in bringing the title to the big screen in the past. Now it’s being reported that Joe Carnahan is writing the script, so it looks like we are that much closer to it being a reality. More on the story below.

‘Deadpool 2’ Writers Confirm Return Of Colossus and Negasonic; Talk About Cable

Deadpool

It really wouldn’t be much of a Deadpool movie without the Merc with a Mouth mocking his fellow castmates, both on screen and off. But as the title character pointed out in the first film, there wasn’t much of a budget for a lot of X-Men characters. With Deadpool being a box office smash, fans are expecting the sequel to be bigger and better. That means they’ll have to introduce new characters for even more hilarious mockery and insults.

We’re expecting to see Cable and Domino in the film, but their roles have not been cast yet. However, in a new interview with screenwriters Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, it’s confirmed that Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead will also be making a return. The two scribes also spoke about how they will work Cable into the film, despite his rather confusing timeline. Check out what they had to say below.

Deadpool Among WGA Awards Nominees

Specific guild nominations are very telling of what films and television shows are up for major awards. Take SAG (Screen Actors Guild). A lot of the times the nominations from those awards are a precursor to which actors will most likely be nominated for Academy Awards. That is really no different from the Writers Guild of America (WGA).

Today, WGA have announced their Writers Guild Awards nominees for the best in original and adaptive screenplay. You may recognize a few like Arrival or La La Land, heard of their critical acclaim like Moonlight, and may be even surprised by a few like Deadpool. That’s right, Deadpool got a nomination. Check out the list of nominated films below.

Hugh Jackman May Be Rethinking Wolverine Retirement

Logan

Hugh Jackman has made it no secret that he intends to put away his adamantium claws for good after Logan, the third installment of the Wolverine X-Men spinoff franchise. The actor has played the character in a total of nine films over the past seventeen years. That’s some major dedication. So while the end is inevitable, there was some hope that he would reconsider, especially since there was a rumor that Deadpool was going to cameo in Logan. Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds and Logan director James Mangold were quick to shoot those rumors down, but Reynolds and Jackman have enjoyed throwing social media jabs at each other, that the two sharing the same screen would make for a great movie.

Now new interviews with the actors reveal that there is a very slim chance that it could happen. Check out what Reynolds and Jackman had to say below.

Empress Eve’s Top 10 Favorite Movies Of 2016

Top 10 Favorite Movies of 2016

Now that 2016 is behind us, it’s time for me to reveal my favorite Movies of 2016. On a global level, the year 2016 will go down in history as a difficult one, where we lost a lot of talented people and there seemed to be an overall negativity in the air (thanks in part to the general election here in the U.S). On a personal level, 2016 was not only difficult, but sorrowful, as I lost my father to cancer. My dad loved movies, and every time we got together, we would discuss the films we had recently seen. Dad got sick early in the year, so we didn’t get to have our usual movie pow-wows.

My top movies are always of the blockbuster, superhero, scifi/fantasy variety, with some comedies sprinkled in, because I like to rewatch movies, so I tend to pick more uplifting titles as “favorites” — therefore, I’m not saying my list is of the “best” movies, they are just the ones I enjoyed the most and will likely rewatch to my heart’s content.

WHAM! Deadpool Rumored To Be Making A Cameo In ‘Logan’

Deadpool Testicular Cancer PSA

There’s no arguing that Deadpool was the breath of life that the X-Men film franchise so desperately needed. The self-depreciating humor and the constant jabs at the inconsistencies within the universe made us all laugh. So a cameo appearance from the Merc with the Mouth in a future X-Men film is practically inevitable.

Of course, if there had to be a film that Deadpool would like to appear in, it would obviously have to be Logan. And according to a new report, it looks like he may be getting his wish. A new report says that Ryan Reynolds will be making an appearance as Deadpool in the next Wolverine movie. But the actor and director James Mangold may have something else to say. Check out the full report below.
