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.

Frank Miller Announces SUPERMAN: YEAR ONE, Giving Him a Real Meaningful Crack at Superman

Comic book writer and artist Frank Miller redefined Batman with Batman: Year One and The Dark Knight Returns just announced he’s developing Superman: Year One. Like his Batman comics, I imagine this could redefine the character Superman, which is actually kind of fascinating.

During a recent interview with Vulture, Miller opened up a little bit about his new project and reveals that he will retell the Superman origin story… in his own way, of course.

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!

Warner Bros. Announces They Are Making FLASHPOINT!!!

With the Warner Bros. always in direct competition with Marvel on Saturday at Comic-con, they are forced to bring out their big guns.

This was the case when they brought out the DC properties. During the panel the studio announced their upcoming slate of superhero movies in a video persentation. They went over the previously announced movies like Green Lantern Corps, Justice League Dark, Aquaman and Wonder Woman 2; they hit us with the title of the upcoming Flash movie. Freaking FLASHPOINT!

That’s right folks, the creative minds at DC are giving The Flash the most complicated/entertaining storyline in all of The Flash‘s history. Flashpoint revolves around The Flash’s power to run so fast that he can manipulate time and the consequences that come with it.

If they stick with the comic arc then it will be in a world where Barry Allen (The Flash) wakes up and the world has changed. Wonder Woman and Aquaman are in a battle for world dominance. A world where Captain Cold is considered a hero and Bruce Wayne is dead.

Barry Allen is forced to find out how the world was changed and how he can bring it back to normal.

If they stick with the original storyline, this should be a massive movie. It can also give DC a chance to solve some problems they have had in the DCEU. Flashpoint was a way of clearing the slate in the DC comic book world. Why couldn’t it do the same in the DCEU?

Ben Affleck Confirms He’s Not Leaving The Batman Role and He’s Excited to Work with Matt Reeves

Yesterday a rumor surfaced that Ben Affleck‘s Batman would be gracefully ushered out of the DCEU. Well, that rumor is false. Affleck confirmed today during the Justice League panel at Comic-Con that he is not leaving the Batman role. In fact, he’s thrilled to be a part of it and he’s excited to work with director Matt Reeves on The Batman. He said:

“I am the luckiest guy in the world. Batman is the coolest part in any universe, Marvel DC, anything–I’m so thrilled to do it. Its fucking amazing. I still can’t believe it. Everyone at the studio tells me I’m their Batman and I believe it. And Matt Reeves? I’d be an ape on the ground for Matt Reeves. Im blown away and its an exciting time in the DC Universe. I’m excited to be Batman.”

That doesn’t sound like the kind of guy who plans on leaving the role of Batman anytime soon. He’s stoked to be a part it! I’m glad he’s not leaving. I actually really enjoy Affleck in the role of Batman and it’s great to know that this iteration of the character will continue to be explored in future films.

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.

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…..

THE BATMAN Director Matt Reeves Says The Film Will Be Influenced By Alfred Hitchcock

Ever since Matt Reeves stepped into the director’s chair for The Batman, there’s been no concrete information on what we can expect from the film. Today, however, we learned from the director that his film will be influenced and inspired by the films of the great Alfred Hitchcock. If any comic book film could fit in with Hitchcock’s filmmaking style, it’s Batman!
