Ryan Reynolds Shares Photos From When Make-A-Wish and Children’s Wish Visited The Set of DEADPOOL 2

One of the many things that I love about Ryan Reynolds is that the guy has a heart and he took time during his busy schedule to hang out with a bunch of kids on the set of Deadpool 2. The actor recently shared some photos on social media of when the production welcomed Make-A-Wish America and Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada to the set. Reynolds said:

“One of the best parts of playing the Big Red Jackass is welcoming Make-A-Wish America and Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada onto set. Deadpool kicked Cancer in the taint, but these kids do it for real every day. These foundations make dreams come true for a lot of of super-brave kids. They also make dreams come true for parents, who just wanna see their kid smile. HUGE thanks to our Prop Master, Dan Sissons, for making sure every kid left with his/her own sword. (Bamboo versions. Not stabby-stabby versions.)”

Kevin Feige Says That BLACK PANTHER is the Best Marvel Movie Ever Made, Do You Agree?

Black Panther is a fun film. I liked how it turned out. It told a great complex story with dramatic layers and it was also fun. But… is it the best Marvel movie ever made? Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige says it is! During an interview with ABC, that you can watch below, Feige said:

“The movie finished, and I looked over at Ryan [Coogler], I said, ‘that’s the best movie we’ve ever made.'”

That’s quite a bold statement from Kevin Feige, but… I have to respectfully disagree. Everyone is going to have their own opinion on this matter because everyone has different tastes. There’s really no right or wrong answer to this.

After watching Black Panther I went back and watched The Winter Soldier and Civil War, and those films are still so amazing. Those along with Iron Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy films I think are better Marvel films than Black Panther. That’s just my opinion, though.

Ryan Coogler Wanted Kraven The Hunter To Appear in BLACK PANTHER

Marvel’s Black Panther movie is a visual feast of awesomeness and fans are going to freakin’ love it! As you’d expect the film is filled with all kinds of comic book references and characters that are associated with Wakanda and other elements of the MCU. However, there was one character from the comics that director Ryan Coogler really wanted to use, but unfortunately, he wasn’t able to. That character is Kraven the Hunter! During an interview with Yahoo!, the director said:

“Being a Marvel fan, you want to grab all the characters. You realise there’s contractual things. You don’t have that character. There was a Christopher Priest run that was pretty heavy, there’s a big scene where Panther’s fighting Kraven, Kraven the Hunter.

“I’ve always loved Kraven the Hunter in almost every iteration. So there was a moment – ‘Can I grab Kraven?’ – and they were ‘Nah, you don’t have Kraven.’ He was one where I thought ‘Oh, man.’ But I don’t even know if he would have worked in the movie we ended up with, this was the early days.”

X-Men Comics Writer Believes X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX Will Be The CASINO ROYALE Of The Franchise

After 18 years of films, people have grown conditioned to have zero expectations for an upcoming X-Men film. Most people anyway, as famed comic book writer Chris Claremont is really setting himself up here as he recently proclaimed X-Men: Dark Phoenix will be to the franchise what Casino Royale was for James Bond. Claremont must’ve raised an eyebrow or two in his interview, because he immediately offered justification in his quote (via Screen Rant):

Wesley Snipes Is Interested In Making BLADE 4 Or Being Another Character In The MCU

Wesley Snipes is up to return to the silver screen as Blade…or really anybody in the MCU for that matter. The actor recently spoke to THR and said he’s down for whatever Marvel may want to do with him, be it reprising his old character or casting him as a new one:

I am very much open to all of the possibilities. If Blade 4 comes along, that is a conversation we can have. And there are other characters in the Marvel universe that, if they want to invite me to play around with, I am with that too. I think the fans have a hunger for me to revision the Blade character, so that could limit where they could place me as another character in that universe.

Ever since Disney bought Fox and we learned that Marvel would be getting the rights to the X-Men and The Fantastic Four back, fans have been wondering, talking about, and speculating what Marvel plans on doing with these characters and when they will actually start to play with them.

During a recent interview with Vulture, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige shed some light on where he stands on all of this at the moment. After claiming that he found out about the big deal in the press like the rest of us saying, “These are big deals” and they are above his pay grade, he explained:

“The truth of the matter as I understand it is the deal has to be figured out. There’s been no communication. We’re not thinking about it. We’re focusing on everything we’ve already announced. If and when the deal actually happens, we’ll start to think more about it. Until then, we have a lot to do.”

New Study Explains Why Fans Prefer Marvel Films Over DC Films

new-study-explains-why-fans-prefer-marvel-films-over-dc-films-social.jpg

That’s right! An official study was conducted to try and explain why more fans prefer Marvel films over DC films. The study was done by an automated market research tech provider named ZappiStore. They say that the success of Marvel can be linked to the viewer’s emotional engagement with the superheroes while watching movie trailers.

What ZappiStore did was test a viewer’s emotional engagement with a series of Marvel and DC movie trailers by using a facial coding and emotion recognition platform called Affectiva. According to ADWEEK:

The respondents participating in the Marvel/DC study, and others like it, only need internet connectivity and a standard web camera. As viewers watch stimulus, Affectiva can measure their moment-by-moment facial expressions of emotions. The results for this study were aggregated and displayed in a dashboard.

They tested these people using a number of DC and Marvel movie trailers to measure viewer emotional engagement to find out which elements of the trailers impacted them most.

Hans Zimmer to Score X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Hans Zimmer to Score X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Hans Zimmer to score X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Following 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, fan-favorite composter Hans Zimmer called it quits when it came to tights and capes. After composing the score for all three of Christopher Nolan’s Batman films, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, and co-scoring BvS with Junkie XL, he decided to hang up his cowl.

Now, however, it would seem that he’s breaking out the mask one more time and will provide the score for the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix. While speaking on the Happy Sad Confused podcast (via Collider), star Evan Peters revealed the information (before realizing he perhaps should not have revealed it), saying:

“I think the film is gonna be incredible. Hans Zimmer’s scoring it—I don’t know if I was supposed to say that or not. Simon has surrounded himself with incredible people, and Simon knows this world better than anybody, so it was just cool to see him—he’s so happy and in his element in that world, and also being able to direct and guide everybody in this way. I was very happy for him and I think it’s gonna be great.”
