Josh Brolin in Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2 Teaser #3 (2018) *Meet Cable*

The insanity that is Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool will be back for more in May, but this time with his partner: bounty hunter for the future and perpetual crankypants – Cable.  Josh Brolin is pulling heavy superhero duty between Deadpool 2 and Avengers: Infinity War in May.  The marketing for this film has been utter nonsense, which is just what it should be as nothing says total absurdity quite like Deadpool or a world in which a Deadpool franchise is a huge success.  FOX (presumably with Disney’s permission) has jumped Deadpool 2 from opening the week after Solo: A Star Wars Story to now opening May 18, 2018 (the week before Solo and two weeks after Avengers….why does no one ever release films in August….WE WILL STILL GO!!!).  Given the pedigrees of the films, the fan base reactions, and the timing….I’m not sure Deadpool 2 won’t open bigger.  Discuss.

*from Coming Soon
Ryan Reynolds is reprising his role as the Merc with a Mouth alongside Zazie Beetz as the luck-manipulating mutant Domino and Josh Brolin as Cable, the time-traveling son of the X-Men’s Cyclops. Jack Kesy (The Strain, Baywatch) is attached to play the film’s central villain, which, while unconfirmed, is rumored to be Irish mutant Black Tom Cassidy. Japanese actress Shioli Kutsuna and Julian Dennison (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) have also joined the film in mystery roles.

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

Other stars returning from the first Deadpool include Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Stefan Kapicic as the voice of Colossus.

  1. Oh so many choices of bad-ass movies. 😀 … remember when there were … well, not ‘none’ but close to it. 😀

    I wonder if they’re betting Solo won’t go the distance and the Merc will steamroller right over the top of him? … still a short-sighted decision … unless … gasp … no, they wouldn’t … it can’t be! … I wonder …


  2. If Solo has been a normal production, and Disney thought they had a dud on thier hands, then sure, I could see them cutting thier losses. But the cost overruns on Solo have got to be in the astronomical range. I have to believe they want to recoup as much money as possible. Maybe they think it all came together, and they really have something? Maybe the safe-to-the-point-of-being-boring trailer was just an overreaction to complaints that TLJ did not feel like SW?

    Or perhaps Solo is SO bad that it needs to be swept under the rug lest it drag down the whole franchise? That it needs to be buried, at whatever monetary cost to the studio? Hey, everyone! Look over here! Deadpool! Avengers! Yeah!


    1. Unfortunately I suspect it’s the latter because the business sense isn’t there to support a sure fire hit. Moving Deadpool 2 up shows huge confidence in that film. Im going in with no hopes or expectations. My analysis is that it will be the lowest grossing film in franchise history.


  3. Rush is not great, but it’s probably the best of the Howard films of the last 10 years. Most of the films you mentioned are over 10 years old that are really good. In the Heart of the Sea was not good. At all. Kasdan said that the original script was his best SW script, so that’s all the hope I have to hang my hat on, but Disney is not treating this as anything special. Wrinkle in Time is getting more hype and consideration than this. Especially in light of the fact the own Fox, allowing Deadpool 2 to possibly prevent Solo from even winning its opening weekend, just seems like sabotage. I don’t see any other way to look at it. I don’t think hardcore fans are happy the film is even happening. I don’t think casual fans knew it existed before the Super Bowl. Disney knows how to market, whatever else. They are burying this film. The only reason I can think of is that it’s bad because it makes no logical business sense to do what they’re doing.

    1. It’s tough to understand why they wouldn’t even show him in the teaser. He’s not Venom. Honestly, at this point, I’m so depressed over the state of Star Wars that it’s affected me entire view of movies.

      1. What do you think of the announcement that the Game of Thrones showrunners are making their own series of SW films separate from Johnson’s and the episodes? I’m also wondering why we haven’t gotten a 2020 SW film confirmation yet and if there will even be one or if Solo has put them off the anthologies and toward new series of films, because now they have two new ones planned. It’s really hard right now to understand where they’re going.

      2. I wish the GOT guys were remaking the prequels. There would be off-the-scale passion this time. You would feel the grinding of the diabolical wheel-spinning, and it would be punctuated by sinister violence. I love Lucas, but he did not commit to his own story, he kept it firmly in the merchandise-freiindly realm.

        I LOVE that Disney hired these guys. This is exactly what I was hoping would happen. It’s obvious that Disney now realizes films like Solo will trap them in the past. The proof is in the pudding, as they say. The fans hate the film already, there was no hope of duplicating the iconic stature of the actor from the OT, and the production was a disaster because they tried to mesh two hip young filmmakers with someone from the old guard, and it was like mixing oil and water. I think they get it now: you can’t have one foot in the past, and one in the future.

        Johnson’s trilogy will have no connection to anything seen before. Great…I will be totally forgiving the next time he decides to be iconoclastic. Now the GOT guys are here, and I’m excited. The lack of a 2020 announcement means Disney has no idea at this point. They are mulling it over. The only anthology I want at this point is Ewan/Obi-Wan. I want the Skywalkers GONE. I never thought I would say that, but their story is over, even if the last one, Kylo Ren, does not know it yet. And if I never see a Boba Fett movie it will be too soon.

        Time to press forward.

        I know this is an optimistic assessment of the situation, but even in my darkest moments, I try to see half a glass of liquid, not half a glass of air.

      3. I’ll tell the the two films I would make, and the notions probobly show why it’s good I’ll never get close to power in Hollywood. First, I would make a film about an older, broken Jar Jar. A moving, somber film. He was kind of instrumental to the rise of the Empire, and the poor innocent guy never deserved to have that on his shoulders. I would give him a quest, center a film on his redemption.

        The second film would center on Vader—masked, suited Vader—returning to Tatooine in the time between trilogies, on some pretext mission. What he really wants, on some level, is some demon-facing. Make the big bad, in all his cadaverous glory, the protagonist. Humanize him, which the prequels never quite managed. Dream up some kind of metaphysical threat he has to fight, and at the end have him discover a child Luke, and have him let Luke live. He planned overthrowing Palps, defying Palps, for longer than we thought.


      4. Dave, my EU reading has always been woefully deficient. It has not been for lack of enthusiasm or trying, I just got frustrated because I would read something incredibly awesome, and suddenly in the next thing I picked up, it would turn out the Emperor in ROTJ was a clone. Without exaggeration, the stuff put out with the Lucasfilm stamp vacillated between wonderfulness and garbage, with middling filler in-between. And I have been holding off on the new cannon, because I’ve been afraid the same amorphous blob will emerge.

        But I realize now that that is no reason to deny myself some excellent Star Wars, especially since the films might not be delivering now for at least a year or two. Tell me where to start. I am in your hands. Is it the Darth Vader series the best place to leap in? Sounds like it.
