Despite being in the midst of being sold or bought or in purchase limbo for the next couple of years, Fox still has work to do in regards to producing films and television, and it appears they’re definitely going to keep making moves. The studio that runs the mutant universes for Marvel has announced the hiring of Brian Michael Bendis to write the script for a new movie that has the mysterious placeholder title of “143,” that Tim Miller is slated to direct.
If you are somehow unfamiliar with Bendis, he is the creator of Jessica Jones, which is getting close to it’s second season premiering on Netflix, as well as a number of other characters (Miles Morales/Ultimate Spider-Man) and comic series’. Miller has gotten his best exposure from directing the original Deadpool movie, and is currently working on the next Terminator film.
So what is “143?” Well, aside from being the old pager code for “I love you,” 143 likely refers to Uncanny X-Men #143 (cover pictured below,) one of the earliest stories starring Kitty Pryde, who we’ve known is getting her own movie for a little while now. For now, we’ll assume that Ellen Page isn’t coming back to play the titular character, although we’d love that. Who do you think should fill her shoes? Give us your thoughts on that and this movie!
It is amazing that in this day and age, with all the ability to figure out what’s happening before it’s happened, we are at somewhat of a loss here. There are two prevailing rumors on who we are looking at in the above screenshot, but the real confusion is created in figuring out just who we’re looking at: one being that this is X-Force. An X-Force movie is in production, and these characters could fit into that schema. However, this could also be Six Pack. Just who are the other characters in this that aren’t Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) and Zazie Beetz (Domino.)
That is 100% Terry Crews and it’s been confirmed he’s in this movie. Original reports had him as Anarchist, but he could be anyone from Bedlam, to G.W. Bridge (I hope note – I need Bridge to have the trademark full white mane,) to Garrison Kane to Hammer. By the look of the face, which looks like some kind of goggles, I’d say it’s Anarchist, but if they put the giant X on the side of his head, Bedlam would be cool, too.
The character between Domino and Deadpool in the picture appears to be Zeitgeist, again due to the yellow masking around the mouth, but others have speculated it could be a somewhat gender-fluid Feral, who is expected to at least cameo. Rumors are that Bill Skarsgård is in the movie, and this looks like it could be him. I’m hoping for Zeitgeist.
Finally, this is definitely Shatterstar. Stefan Kapičić, who plays Colossus, admitted as much in an interview with the Inverse Entertainment website. Ryan Reynolds kind of demanded him for this film, so this is cool to see, but not a giant surprise.
We’re still waiting on seeing Sunspot, who we also expect to see in this film as well. Last movie, they couldn’t afford to have all the guns they wanted and had to make 3 characters into one. This time, they’ve got heroes we haven’t seen in the first two trailers. Is it over-stuffed? Tell us what you think!
Today we get a new Deadpool 2 trailer, and this one is heavily focused on Cable. I am again worried that the focus is heavily on everything but quality of story in this sequel, which I think plagued the first film. Also, I worry that Cable is going to be mishandled in the film, but he sure looks cool, even if this Cable ends up being quite different than the one in the comics. Deadpool is set to drop on May 18th, but we want to hear your thoughts on the trailer!
It looks as if we are going to get more “Fenris” on our television screens as Fox has officially renewed it’s hit X-men based series, “The Gifted” for a second season. Fox made the announcement Thursday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
The series is set in the “X-Men” universe and follows a suburban couple, The Struckers who discover that their teenage children are mutants with special powers. They are forced to flee from the government while connecting with an underground network of mutants while fighting to survive. Fox is preparing to air its two-hour first season finale on Jan. 15.
It stars Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Natalie Alyn Lind, Percy Hynes White, Sean Teale, Jamie Chung, Emma Dumont, Blair Redford, and Coby Bell.
The series is produced by 20th Century Fox Television in association with Marvel Television. Matt Nix, Bryan Singer, Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory serve as executive producers. Nix, who serves as the series’ showrunner, wrote the pilot, which was directed by Singer.
Whelp, it’s OFFICIALLY happening. The Gambit movie that has been on hold them off hold. We now it’s for sure on and it has a release date of Valentine’s Day 2019. Talks are being held for the movie to be directed by Gore Verbinski of Pirates of the Caribbean fame.
The movie which is set to star Channing Tatum as Remy Lebeau a thief and mutant who can turn items with stationary potential energy to explosive kinetic energy is also said to have Nathaniel Essex aka Mr. Sinister as the big bad guy.
No full Plot Details have yet to be revealed.
After months and months of anticipation, we finally have a trailer for the Josh Boone film “The New Mutants”. Much was wondered what could be expected from a film in the X-Men family that was a full on horror movie and contained Mutants without costumes.
Well this trailer does not disappoint at all. Set I what appears to be an insane asylum or as called in the trailer “a haunted house” for this writer has a “House on Haunted Hill” vibe plus more. Check it out below and let us know what you think.
This is the photo I believe the world of comic book fans have been waiting on. We officially have our first look at Josh Brolin As Cable from the upcoming Ryan Reynolds led Deadpool 2.
We have seen photos of Josh Brolin working out intensively in preparation for the role, even seen him getting the mold casted on his face but have yet to see the full look, now we have it.
It’s interesting to note that for the film they are going with the slimmer “Marvel Vs Capcom” video game version of him. This along with the first look at Zazie Beets as Domino has garnered somewhat mixed reactions from fans. We want to know what you all think.
