Deadpool Takes A Break: Here’s Why Ryan Reynolds Won’t Be Performing His Own Stunts On ‘Deadpool 2’

'Deadpool' [Credit: 20th Century Fox]One of the biggest draws of the Valentines’ Day hit Deadpool were the action scenes that showed off the titular mercenary’s brutal combat skills. Whether it was a gun or a katana in his hands, Wade Wilson a.k.a. Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) was more than capable of taking down anyone with ease. But the reality behind filming these awesome fights is a lot harsher than some may think, and this is why Reynolds will not be able to perform his character’s stunts for the highly anticipated Deadpool 2.

In an interview with Empire, Reynolds revealed that he had no choice but to delegate his character’s stunts in the sequel due to his health.

Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster in THOR: RAGNAROK is The Collector’s Brother

There was one other fun piece of new revealed at Comic-Con this past weekend that I wanted to share. During the Thor: Ragnarok panel, Jeff Goldblum revealed an interesting piece of information regarding his character The Grandmaster.

He shared that The Grandmaster is the brother of The Collector (Benicio Del Toro) in Guardians of the Galaxy, which is a cool little connection that I wasn’t expecting. They aren’t brothers in the comics, but I like that they’ve done it for the MCU, it just adds a nice little dynamic. Goldblum went on to explain and threw in a bit more interesting information:

“We’re elders of the universe. We came about shortly after the Big Bang. We’re the oldest living creatures in the universe. Grandmaster and my brother, Collector. I rule on this planet Sakaar and I put together games. I put together the great, great match between Hulk and the new Thor. “

Marvel has tweaked a few things with The Grandmaster in the MCU, but from what I’ve seen everything works, and I’m totally fine with any changes they’ve made. I love how the different corners of the MCU are connecting to each other and I’m sure there are more connections to come as we move closer to the fourth Avengers film.

I have no idea if we’ll ever see The Grandmaster and The Collector together on the big screen in the MCU, but I hope it eventually happens!

CAPTAIN MARVEL Will Be Set in the 1990s and Nick Fury Will Be Back… with Two Eyes

During the Marvel panel at Comic-Con today, Kevin Feige revealed a few cool new details regarding Captain Marvel! On top of showing off some concept art of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, which you can see below, he also announced that the film would be set in the early 1990s!

This means the whole story will have taken place long before the events of Iron Man and I absolutely love that direction! This is certainly going to be an interesting period piece. I loved the 90s. Feige also confirmed that Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury would be back and since the story is set in the 90s… he’ll have both of his eyes, which is pretty fun.

I should probably also mention that The Skrulls will be in the movie! Yep, you read that correctly… The Skrulls! The Skrulls are a villainous alien race with shape-shifting abilities and they are hell bent on invading Earth and engaged in a prolonged war with the extraterrestrial Kree. You can check out some concept art of them below!

Feige didn’t go into any details on the story, but I love what I’m hearing about it and seeing from it so far! That’s all the info we have right, but we’ll fill you in on more details as they become avilable.

Sony’s SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Producer Says Spider-Man and Venom Will Exist in the Same Universe

It seems like Marvel and Sony need to get on the same page about Spider-Man’s place in the MCU and his connection to Venom, Black Cat, and Silver Sable.

Last week, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that there were no plans to include Venom in the MCU. He clarified that it was a Sony project.

Carnage Confirmed to Appear in Tom Hardy’s VENOM and Kraven and Mysterio Will Get Standalone Films

Some interesting new information regarding the Spider-Man cinematic universe that Sony Pictures is developing. As you’ve probably already heard by now, Spider-Man: Homecoming producer Amy Pascal said that Tom Holland‘s version of Spider-Man will exist in that cinematic universe that will launch with Venom. That will be followed by a Black Cat and Silver Sable movie.

It was confirmed in a recent report from THR that “Holland is only contractually obligated to Spider-Man 2 and 3, but the intention is to bring him into the spinoffs and possibly other Marvel films.” So we will eventually see Spider-Man in this separate universe that Sony is developing.

VENOM Film Will Reportedly Feature Ann Weying a.k.a. She-Venom and New Details on Venom’s Suit

about. Ann Weying. I had no idea who that was. I mean, sure, I do now, but it’s rare to be introduced to a character from comics that I haven’t heard of that might be featured in a Marvel film. But here we are, and she’s a big one.

Ann Weying is a successful lawyer and Eddie Brock’s ex-wife in the comics. She was shot by some dude and later became She-Venom. Classy title. While there isn’t any news that the character will turn into She-Venom in the film, it has recently revealed by The Hashtag Show that Sony is looking for actresses ages 25 to 32 to play the role in the upcoming Venom film.

New Kid Friendly FANTASTIC FOUR Movie Possibly in the Works at Fox

Dammit, Fox. Just stop it. You have some of the coolest Marvel villains all under the Fantastic Four rights and instead of just admitting defeat and letting those rights roll over, you gotta pull this shit.

So, Bleeding Cool is reporting that Fox has started working on another Fantastic Four movie with the help of Seth Grahame-Smith. Grahame-Smith is an author who created the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies book by mixing the original literature with his own zombified twist. He also was involved in helping with the last Fantastic Four movie script. And by help, I mean, trying to fix what was left of the train wreck of a script that existed.

Scarlett Johansson Reveals The Crazy Number of Characters That are in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

We figured Avengers: Infinity War was gonna have a lot of characters in it. After all, it’s Marvel’s penultimate film for what is the Marvel Universe’s Avengers smackdown. But I don’t think anyone had thought that it would have more than 50 characters let alone 60.

In a recent late night show visit with Stephen Colbert, Scarlett Johansson revealed that the amount of Marvel characters in the film would be around 61 or 62. When pressed if that is just in one scene, she clarified that there is about 32 in one specific scene. 61? 32? What sort of madman makes a film like that!?

Now, just how she defines a Marvel character could be interesting. Maybe there’s an extra in the film who plays a specific Marvel character that none of us know about. Off the top of my head, I can only even think of like 30 characters who have even been officially announced to be IN Avengers: Infinity War, let alone 60.

Granted, maybe she was just exaggerating in her interview, but then again 61 or 62 seems like a rather specific number to pull out of the air. She could have just said around 50 or something, but she said 61 or 62. This movie looks like it’s going to be CRAZY packed with Marvel characters. I’m excited to see it just for the fact that this many big stars are in one movie that isn’t revolving around a holiday. In fact, it almost seems like there might be… Too many Cooks…..

Chris Hemsworth Says Marvel Actors Have A Contract Prohibiting Them From Appearing In DC Films

Marvel actors are not allowed to appear in DC films according to Chris Hemsworth. Comicbook writes that Hemsworth told fans at the Supanova convention in Australia that it’s “illegal,” for stars of Marvel films to appear in any DC property. The move is unsurprising, and I wouldn’t be surprised if DC had a contract with its actors that states the exact same thing.

While DC seems to be a no-go, it appears that appearing in a Sony film is cool as evidenced by Tom Holland jumping between the two as Spider-Man and Josh Brolin appearing as Thanos in Avengers as well as Cable in Deadpool 2. At the rate these companies are producing movies, Marvel and DC will begin to run out of big names to cast if they keep locking down actors for roles! Do you think the move is good, or is it a bit silly to force the actors into an exclusive hero deal?
