Solo: A Star Wars Story is about a young man lured into a life of smuggling and thievery. Deadpool 2 stars an actual murderer. Why do we admire heroes who commit crimes? On the latest episode of That Looks Familiar, Beth Elderkin shares the stories of real-life “Lovable Rogues” from history and looks at what happens…
My favorite gag in the Deadpool movies is that he just really, really enjoys The Golden Girls. And who can blame him? It’s a charming, wholesome show.
Marvel Studios’ parent company Disney would very much like to get its hands on all of the sweet, juicy, profitable comic book IP that Fox smartly secured back in the ‘90s, but the House of Mouse’s tentative $52.4 billion offer might no longer be enough to seal the deal.
Deadpool 2 revels in pointing out many of the overused narrative beats that other comic book movies tend to rely on when the writers decide to phone it in. Interestingly, the film’s shadiest dig is also one of its most progressive messages.
Deadpool 2 had a weird marketing campaign. One of its earliest salvos was an odd trailer that featured Deadpool playing out the role of Bob Ross. The trailer, which was full of Easter Eggs and gags, spawned a host of fan theories about the final film. And the film’s credits contain a nod to one of the biggest.
Deadpool, as a character and a film franchise, often goes to dark places to get laughs. But some jokes are too dark even for the Merc with a Mouth, and this is probably one of them.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly roundup of the neatest toys around. This week, Hot Toys gives us a Deadpool with killer footwear, the incredible Batman Ninja gets an equally worthy action figure, and more Harry Potter Lego than you can shake a whomping willow at. Check it out!
If you’ve already seen Deadpool 2, then some congratulations are in order. Congratulations! Now get in here where it’s safe to talk about the damned film safely before the hordes of anti-spoiler purists catch your scent on the wind and hunt you down.
Deadpool 2 is upon us, in which the Merc with a Mouth has to form a team of his own to fight off Cable—the X-Force. The team has an important history in the comics, and although Deadpool 2's version is a little different, it’s still packed with new faces that have some Marvel Comics history. Here’s what you should…
Ten years. Some really bad decisions by Ryan Reynolds. Two movies. And several low-level X-Men. Is that enough for Deadpool to pat himself on the back as if he’d, say, spent the last 10 decades pumping out movies like Marvel? You bet it is.
The end credits scene of Deadpool 2 is one of the most memorable in superhero history. And, don’t worry, we aren’t going to spoil it. But the film’s writers recently spoke about two other scenes they imagined for the credits that didn’t make it into the film—and they’re just as outrageous, if not more so.
Deadpool 2 is a family movie. We know that because, very early on, Deadpool himself says it. Of course, that’s an odd thing for a character known for excessive violence, naughty language, and occasional nudity to announce. But Deadpool, the writers, and the director spend the bulk of the film trying to live up to that…
Deadpool 2 is just days away, and what better way to wait for the film than to dig into the Merc with a Mouth’s comic book backlog? We’ve got some suggestions, but with a twist—these aren’t the hilarious, bizarre adventures that usually star the quirky antihero. These are the stories that explore why Wade Wilson is…
He’s played Deadpool, but can he play Deadpool?
J.J. Abrams is teaming up with the director behind Overlord again for a superhero thriller. Spamalot could be heading to the big screen. Ryan Reynolds is still holding out hope for a Deadpool/Wolverine team up with Hugh Jackman. Plus, what’s to come on Supernatural and more. May the spoilers be with you, always!
Part of what made the first Deadpool’s blockbuster success so amazing was that the film’s budget was surprisingly lean, leading to creative choices being born from the restriction of, well, not having as much cash to throw around. If there’s ever to be a third Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds wants that sort of restriction…
Deadpool 2 may not be in theaters for another few weeks, but fans are already toasting their favorite Merc with a Mouth at Sister Margaret’s School for Wayward Girls. Fox partnered with Mike’s Harder to open up a pop-up bar in Brooklyn in celebration of the upcoming film (with a sister bar in Los Angeles), and io9 was…
In 1991, Deadpool premiered in New Mutants #98, drawn by Rob Liefeld. Now, art from that landmark comic book is up for auction, and it can be yours if you’re willing to shell out the cash.
The latest and final trailer for Deadpool 2 added a new member to the X-Force: Peter. He doesn’t have any powers, he just responded to the ad. And, as it turns out, he’s also got a dad-tastic Twitter presence.
The last trailer for Deadpool 2 namedropped the infamous black ops X-Team, X-Force. Now, we get to meet the actual members of the team as Wade Wilson goes on a mission against his longtime time-hopping frenemy.
