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

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

The X-Men film franchise may look bleak now, but that hasn’t stopped Fox from moving forward with its lucrative Marvel titles. Rumor is that they are prepping to shoot New Mutants as early as next year in Montreal, where they previously shot X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse. There’s also the release of Logan, which apparently got rave reviews today when the studio screened the first act of the film to a select group of journalists. Fans can also rest easy knowing that Deadpool 2 is finally moving forward now that the Tim Miller controversy is behind them.

We know that David Leitch (co-director of John Wick) will helm the sequel, and it seems that Ryan Reynolds, who plays the title character, couldn’t be more excited that the filmmaker is behind the lens. Check out what he had to say below.

Deadpool Movie

Last weekend, Deadpool fans got some pretty shocking news as it was announced that Tim Miller would no longer be directing Deadpool 2 due to creative differences with the film’s star Ryan Reynolds. Since then fans have been petitioning for Quentin Tarantino to direct the film, which will most likely blow over as soon as Fox finds another director who shares Reynold’s vision for the sequel.

Now new details are emerging as what made the two part ways. Check out the full story below.

‘Deadpool’ Writers Say They Don’t Want “$150 Million” For The Sequel

Deadpool Testicular Cancer PSA

Fox had already given the green light for a Deadpool sequel long before the film was even released. And now that the film has grossed over $250 million worldwide in its four-day weekend opening, the studio has much more confidence that an R-rated comic book comedy could work. When a film performs that well, it’s easy to see why the studio might give a little bit more money to the budget for Deadpool 2. With Deadpool being made on a $58 million budget – after it had been cut by $7 million – one would think that the production budget for the next film would grow. But that doesn’t appear to be the case.

Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick says that they didn’t mind being limited to such a small budget, and they don’t want “$150 million to go make the next movie.” More on the story below.

‘Deadpool’ Sequel Gets The Greenlight From 20th Century Fox

Deadpool

As if you didn’t see this one coming. Deadpool 2 is happening. Fans and critics have expressed overwhelmingly positive opinions on the film, and that kind of support only gives more of a reason for 20th Century Fox to give the greenlight for a sequel to happen.

THR confirms that Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who wrote Deadpool, are writing the script for a sequel. This kind of news shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. The film has a strong show of support from fans and critics alike and is on track to gross an estimated $65 to $70 million at the box office during this four-day weekend. That is pretty huge for an R-rated comedy. While Ryan Reynolds, director Tim Miller, Reese, and Wernick, fought hard to get this film to happen, much of the reason this film is happening is because of that concept video that was leaked last year. Whether or not that came from a fan or someone within the creative team camp is unclear, but Deadpool is on its way, and we are at the point that we are talking about a sequel. Of course, if the film doesn’t perform well at the box office, the studio could pull the plug on the sequel.

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.
