This Is Why The Deadpool Movie Is The One Marvel Fans Want. And NEED.

With the recent record breaking performance by Guardians of the Galaxy at the box office, some people are wondering what is next for the Marvel movie franchise. If Marvel knows what is good for them, they’ll start working on the movie fans have been craving since X-Men Origins: Wolverine came out…The Deadpool movie.

Who is Deadpool you ask? Deadpool is one of the most fun characters in all of comic books. He was a part of the Weapon X program that made Wolverine the ferocious mutant that he is today. What makes Deadpool unique is the hilarious dialogue that is employed in his comic books. While most superheroes are brooding and dark with a lot of pain, Deadpool is a funny mercenary who even breaks the fourth wall, as seen here.

 

Ryan Reynolds played the character in the Wolverine movie back in 2009 and did such a marvelous job that rumors immediately started circulating about a separate Deadpool movie. Unfortunately, to this day those rumors have yet to come to fruition.

 

But recently, test footage from the planned movie has surfaced and people are starting to get giddy again. Rumor has it, the test footage was released to gauge interest in the film to see if it will be the box office smash that studios hope it will be. Well, based on the amount of views on the video and the buzz that it created, fans are SUPER INTERESTED!

One of the problems people find with the movie is that most summer blockbusters come with a PG-13 rating and a Deadpool movie would need to be rated R for it to be an authentic Deadpool movie, as Deadpool has quite a potty mouth and is known to be a quite gory comic book as compared to many of the other comics.

 

But that’s what makes it awesome and unique! It’s a funny, different take on being a superhero (or anti-hero as Deadpool is often classified). We’ve all seen the super heroes go through their struggles with hardly any kind of humor. Sure, there are funny throwaway lines in some Spider Man movies and Robert Downey Jr. has perfected the character, Tony Stark with his witticisms, but there is no hero quite like Deadpool. His movie would keep fans laughing and interested all while providing the action that would be necessary for a superhero movie.

 

So this is my plea to Marvel, Fox, Sony, whoever has the rights to the Deadpool movie (I’m not quite sure) – PLEASE MAKE THIS MOVIE. It will be awesome and you will make a lot of fans’ dreams come true. Honestly, before the movie came out, The Guardians of the Galaxy were a relatively unknown Marvel commodity. Deadpool has a cult following and would certainly bring in just as much, if not more interest and money as Guardians. That is…if it is done right.

 

Deadpool has such a cult following that he is one of the fan favorite cosplay heroes at Comic Cons across the country. And these people know how to do it right.

 

The Deadpool movie would have to be equal parts funny and action-y. But I have faith in the big guns in Hollywood to take care of this. I beleive in Deadpool and I believe in the Deadpool Movie! SO MAKE IT ALREADY!

‘Same name, new body parts’: Marvel’s Thor to become a woman

http://twitter.com/#!/toddstarnes/status/489123106469203968

Marvel Comics has announced that Norse God Thor (in the comics at least, if not the movies) is now a woman.

“The inscription on Thor’s hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.’ Well it’s time to update that inscription,” said Marvel editor Wil Moss in a statement. “The new Thor continues Marvel’s proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute – she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!”

Reaction on Twitter was about a snarky as expected.

I'm OK with making Thor a woman, as long as Mjolnir becomes a rolling pin.

This Is The Perfect Reaction To Bradley Cooper’s Oscars Snub

“The more I think about it, the more upset I am that Bradley Cooper was snubbed at The Oscars on Sunday.”

On Sunday night, Bradley Cooper didn’t win an Oscar for Best Actor, losing to Eddie Redmayne for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything.

Reddit user Andrew Bloom has really eloquently summed up how we’re all probably feeling about this grave injustice.

Hear me out. I know Cooper did not portray the kind of character or take on the kind of role that the snobs in Hollywood typically care for–it didn’t fit the traditional “Best Actor” mold. There was lots of violence in the film; he spent most of the movie brandishing a gun, and yes, the character was portrayed as something of a superhero in a situation with much bigger political issues at play that the movie only grazed.

But his sensitive portrayal of the scars his character endured–both physical and emotional–brought an unexpected pathos to a character who could otherwise have easily just been a cartoon character. Yes, he used a firearm. Yes, his partner was a little wooden. Yes, the accent was a little distracting at times. But none of those things should have disqualified Cooper from gaining the well-deserved recognition for breathing such life into a character that enthralled us all.

You know it. I know it. Deep down in their hearts, the Oscar voters know it. This year’s best performance was Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon.

Disney CEO: We Could Stream Star Wars, Marvel, And ESPN (But Won’t Anytime Soon)

Bob Iger said today that charging online viewers directly for some of its most popular programming is a possibility, but cautioned “we do not believe that there is any reason for us” to do it right now.

Disney chief executive Bob Iger said today on a call with analysts to discuss the company’s earnings that the it could potentially offer some of its most popular video content — ESPN, Star Wars, and Marvel — over the internet directly to consumers. Iger said that the company “may have an opportunity to bring out a Marvel-type product and possibly even Star Wars.”

Iger said that Disney could do this to boost its own profits “by taking out the middle man” and to “create a closer relationship with the a consumer that can be mined for other revenue generating purposes.” But none of this is just around the corner — Iger also stressed that for now, the cable bundle system is working just fine for the company and its bottom line.

Marvel Entertainment and Lucasfilm are both subsidiaries of Disney and, in addition to new Star Wars and Avengers movies being produced and distributed by Disney, Marvel’s Agents of Shield and Agent Carter air on Disney-owned ABC.

ESPN, ESPN 2 and the Disney Channel are already available on Dish Network’s broadband Sling TV product and Disney makes ESPN content available to cable subscribers through Watch ESPN. In its latest nine year contract with the NBA, ESPN won the rights to air some basketball games directly over the web. ESPN’s programming has never been more popular, especially the recent inaugural college football playoff.

The national championship game between Oregon and Ohio State drew the highest rating in cable history, averaging over 33 million viewers, with the two semifinal games drawing over 28 million viewers each, making them the second and third most viewed cable broadcasts. ESPN generates billions of dollars of revenue just from payments from cable companies and costs about four times as much per viewer as the next-most-expensive cable channel, TNT.

Iger said that there are 12 million broadband-only subscribers who don’t have cable, and “that’s the subscriber that we’re trying to reach with the Sling package,” although he also noted that “it’s a worthwhile experiment…to try to convince young people or younger people to sign up to cable when they either wouldn’t have signed up for it at all or they might have waited.”

But don’t get too excited about watching the Avengers, Skywalkers, and Crimson Tide directly to your TV without a cable subscription. “We also are mindful of the value of the expanded basic bundle to this company” Iger said. “We do not believe that there is any reason for us to attempt to take out some of this product — particularly ESPN — quickly or right now.”

Robert Downey Jr. Is Basically Tony Stark – And The Best Person Ever.

It’s getting more and more difficult to tell Robert Downey Jr. apart from his avenging superhero alter-ego Tony Stark. With his recent appearances in San Diego at Comic-Con, the lines between real life and fiction have all but disappeared. Where does the character end and the actor begin? Did the role bring out his latent Tony aspects, or is Robert hiding a secret glowing heart of his own?

Okay, obviously the actual Iron Man aspect is completely fictional… Probably. But everything else adds up to a curious case of who’s who with Dr. Stark and Mr. Downey.

He’s definitely got the charisma.

This is how he entered Comic Con this year…

And he definitely has the same Stark-level confidence.

Like, a lot of confidence.

Seriously. Off the charts, Tony-level confidence.

Pretty much impossible to tell them apart.

Who knows if he’s already invented his own iron suit.

Robert Downey Jr. is Tony Stark.

Even he gets confused:

Either way, there’s no denying the man is awesome. Just look at how much he loves to surprise his littlest fans:

Please share with your friends to see if we can finally get to the bottom of this confusing conundrum. Or at least so we can all bask in the amazingness together.
