Deadpool news round-up!!!
Simon Kinberg, producer of Deadpool and the sequel, has been talking about the second movie’s production and it seems that things are looking very promising, indeed…
According to Den of Geek ‘Deadpool 2 will keep the ethos of the first film. That there won’t suddenly be a massive influx of cash, and the same almost guerrilla-style approach to getting the film made will continue.’
This is a great bit of news as one of the things that worked so well for Deadpool was the look of the movie, the rough and ready feel made the character feel truer to his comic origins.
But that’s not the only good news: “the success of it, I think the result is, we’ll have even more freedom – and they give us an immense amount of freedom – but we’ll have even more creative freedom going forward [on Deadpool 2],” say Kinberg, “and maybe a little more money for the next Deadpool movie”.
In related news, the guys at Nerdist have been chatting to Dolph Lungren about his new movie Kindergarten Cop 2 and the topic of superhero movies came up. The actor was asked if there was any characters he’s be interested in playing – Lungren has played Punisher and He-Man, so he’s no stranger to the genre – and interestingly, he knew who cable was and that the casting is happening soon: “That’s a good question. I haven’t watched a lot of these superhero movies; for some reason, I don’t know, I’m just busy making films. I did hear in… Deadpool, isn’t there a character named Cable that’s coming? Like, he’s a big guy? I guess I could kick some butt doing that, I suppose. We’ll see. When I saw the picture, he looks a little bit like Ivan Drago mixed with Gunner Jensen mixed with… I don’t know.”
The image below was a bit of fan art but we think he may just be the ticket… (continues after picture).
