‘Deadpool’ Production Begins; Vanessa and Weasel Confirmed as Characters

deadpool-ryan-reynolds-630x4201

For a long time it seemed like the Deadpool movie could never happen. The character's first appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine completely mis-read Deadpool's appeal despite the seemingly perfect casing of Ryan Reynolds. When Reynolds made his DC with the Green Lantern movie for Warner Bros., it seemed unlikely that Deadpool would ever get back in track.

The canny decision to leak some test footage back in July of last year for a Deadpool movie treatment that relies heavily on CGI to embrace the character's Looney Tunes cartoonishness caused enough of a stir that Deadpool was suddenly alive again, with Reynolds still attached to star. Now we have evidence from the cast that the movie has entered into production, which means it is really, actually happening.

The Great Super-Costume Poll: The 1990s Called…

supercostumes14

Costume design is one of the great strengths of the superhero genre, a way to establish distinctive visual shorthand for a character and reveal key details about concept, purpose, and personality. But which is the best superhero costume of all time? This month, we're asking you to decide, by voting up your favorites and voting down the rest. When we have your votes, we'll compile a list of the greatest super-costumes of all time.

This week we're looking at some quintessential costume designs decade-by-decade. Today it's five costumes from the 1990s, the era of the Image artist, the bad girl, big knives, big guns, big shoulder pads, leather jackets and lots and lots of pockets. We've picked out just a few costumes to represent some of these trends.

‘Deadpool’ Needs A New Colossus: We Choo-Choo-Choose ‘Choo-Choo’ From ‘Justified’

choolossus

Actor Daniel Cudmore, who played Colossus in the X-Men movies, took to Twitter to tell his fans that he won't reprise the role. A physically imposing figure, Cudmore may not have the range that Deadpool requires. Playing the straight man in a comedy is a demanding job for any actor, and calls for an actor with excellent comedy timing.

Fortunately, an unknown but similarly-sized actor recently made his debut in the TV show Justified. With a vacancy for a new Colossus now open, the man they call "Choo-Choo" may be perfect for the job.

‘Deadpool’ Adds Gina Carano and Colossus to Cast

Gina Carano Haywire
Relativity

Former mixed martial artist Gina Carano made a major splash in Hollywood with her debut film, Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire, where she was cast as a butt-kicking spy in a stripped-down, throwback action flick. The movie was cool and she was great in it, but it didn’t really launch her in the way Haywire fans wanted. Carano should be mixing it up with Jason Statham or Scott Adkins — heck, she should be the next Jason Statham or Scott Adkins — but it just hasn’t happened yet. She did have a small role in Fast & Furious 6, and she’s supposed to be in the new Kickboxer remake/reboot/rewhatever but she hasn’t come close to topping Haywire yet, where she beat the holy hell out of Michael Fassbender and choked out Ewan McGregor and was generally 110 percent awesome.

Ryan Reynolds Teases His ‘Deadpool’ Costume

20th Century Fox
20th Century Fox

Ryan Reynolds has been trying to get a proper Deadpool movie off the ground ever since he helped botch the character in the deplorable X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Yeah, he says he has a genuine affinity for the character, but he also has to appease the ever-fickle movie gods, who punished him for his earlier comic book movie transgressions by putting him in Green Lantern. Making a Deadpool movie is how he restores order to the universe. Anyway, Reynolds took to Twitter to share our first glimpse of the Merc With a Mouth’s costume and even in this early state, it’s a significant improvement over the previous big screen version of the character.

Time To Beret The Dead: Deadpool Fights Ultimatum & Ultimatumly Dies In ‘Deadpool’ #250 (AKA ‘Deadpool’ #45)

Deadpool_45_200hed

The death of Deadpool has been a long time coming. He's a popular character, and nothing says "popular" like a specially renumbered epic death event. Also, Marvel's sales head David Gabriel already told ComicBook.com months ago that Marvel was planning to kill off the character (or "a character with the word Dead in his name", but we didn't think it was going to be Dead Girl again), so the writing was on the wall for ol' Wade Wilson.

Now Marvel has confirmed to Nerdist that Deadpool will meet his end in Deadpool #250 (actually Deadpool #45) in April, in an issue that places the mercenary with a mouthcenary in a final confrontation with the jaunty beret-wearing goons of Ultimatum. The issue will be the last in the current series.
