Channing Tatum Would Like To Play Gambit

Gambit. The one X-Men spinoff that seems to be having trouble finding a director. After losing two of its directors in the past two years, it looked like Gore Verbinski (A Cure For Wellness) may have been the director to finally make the Ragin’ Cajun film happen.

However, you can now add him to the growing list of directors who could not commit to the project, as Verbinski has departed the project. Find out what made the split happen in the full story below.

Avengers and X-Men

When there was word that Disney was entertaining the idea of buying out the 20th Century Fox film and TV properties, fans got excited at the idea that X-Men and Fantastic Four could finally come into the MCU fold. Avatar land made more sense, too. And the idea that Disney could possibly release more mature material under the Fox banner became a possibility. But as soon as that news broke, the deal was off.

Now it appears that the deal may not be as dead as we first thought. There are reports that X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner is becoming one of the key players to make this deal happen. More on the story below.

Drew Goddard

Following the success of Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds teased the idea of getting an X-Force film off the ground. The film would follow a black-ops team of mutants, led by the time-traveling Cable, that would take a more proactive stance against threats to mutantkind. Recently, it was confirmed that Joe Carnahan (Smokin’ Aces) would pen the script. But that still left the film without a director.

Now there’s word that Fox has tapped Drew Goddard, writer of films like Cloverfield and Deadpool 2, to write and direct X-Force. More on the story below.

The Gifted

In addition to the recent FX series Legion, which was recently renewed for a second season, FOX has also been developing another X-Men spinoff TV series from Burn Notice and The Comedians creator Matt Nix.

Some of the things we’ve known about it up to this point include that it would be set in the X-Men universe with mutants, that FOX had ordered a pilot episode set to be directed by longtime X-Men movie director Bryan Singer, and that Jamie Chung would star as Blink.

A handful of months after ordering the pilot, FOX has now given a full series order to the show along with an official title: The Gifted. They’ve also released a brief teaser, which can be found below along with more details on the story and cast.

X-Men

In just a couple of weeks Fox will air their quasi-X-Men spinoff TV series, Legion. The show, starring Dan Stevens and Aubrey Plaza, does not take place in the same universe as the one seen in the film franchise.

However, the one being created by Matt Nix (Burn Notice) does. The untitled show will center on a world where people hate mutants and sentinels exist. Now it’s been announced that a pilot for that show has been ordered, and more details are coming out about it along with confirmation that longtime X-Men film director Bryan Singer will helm the pilot. Check it out below.

FX's X-Men Spinoff TV Series Legion

Unlike their Marvel Cinematic Universe competitors, Fox’s X-Men film universe is a bit limited. This is due to the fact that they do not have access to any of the Marvel characters other than their own. However, that hasn’t stopped them from expanding it with reboots, spinoffs, and TV series.

Legion, Fox’s first new X-Men series, will premiere in just a couple of weeks. Many have speculated that it will take place some time after the events of the X-Men film universe. With that formula working so well for Disney and Marvel, it only makes sense that Fox try to replicate it. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case. In fact, it will not take place in the film universe at all, according to producer Lauren Shuler Donner. A different X-Men TV series, however, will. Find out what Donner had to say about the show and its place within the film universe below.

Deadpool Pops The Big Question

Usually we don’t share every single piece of promotional material for an upcoming movie, because in most cases a lot of the short TV spots and clips that are released show the same or similar content to what we’ve seen in the past. Deadpool is not most cases. While we have seen a lot of the same footage from the actual movie shown in previous related goodies we’ve seen, the marketing campaign has also been jam-packed with plenty of creative and hilarious promos.

In the latest clip Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) pops the big question to his lady friend Vanessa Carlysle (Morena Baccarin), though it probably doesn’t go quite like they had imagined it in their heads. You can watch the new clip below.

Deadpool and Negasonic Teenage Warhead

If you couldn’t shake the fear that—despite everything that we’ve seen and heard regarding Deadpool being as faithfully gory and graphic as fans of the comic book have always demanded the movie be—20th Century Fox might try to pull a fast one and ultimately reveal it to actually be rated PG-13 shortly before release, worry not my friends.

Though your fears were understandable (why, if we’ve all known for a long time now that star Ryan Reynolds and director Tim Miller had been given permission to make an R-rated flick and we’ve seen with our own eyeballs the ultra violent red band trailers, would promos released as early as this week still say “This Film Is Not Yet Rated”?), Deadpool has been officially awarded that badge of honor R-rating from the Motion Picture Association of America. Continue reading to find out what exactly the movie has been given that R rating for.

Deadpool trailer header

A trio of new Deadpool TV spots have been released, with a tip of the hat to football, which is pretty popular right now with the NFL playoffs in full swing, and Pretty Little Liars included.

In addition to the two new TV spots, some Valentine’s Day friendly ads have also been released. As you already know the movie is set to be released just before the holiday for lovers on February 12th, and so it only makes sense to have a couple of the promo materials for the movie be more fitting to the holiday…and perhaps help a gentleman or two to convince their significant other to go and see this new Ryan Reynolds romantic comedy for their V-Day date night.

You can check out the TV spots and ads below.
