A week ago we learned that the original director for Deadpool, Tim Miller was abandoning ship, and now we've received confirmed reports that Miller is gearing up to direct the Sonic the Hedgehog movie.



The gameplan at this point is to make a hybrid CG-animated/live-action family film. Patrick Casey and Josh Miller, who were responsible for creating Golan the Insatiable, are penning the script.

Deadline confirms that Tim Miller (directed Deadpool and was going to direct the sequel) has split due to creative differences with Ryan Reynolds. Miller apparently never signed on for the second film, and the parting of ways was reported as being done under amicable circumstances.



Still though, this comes as a bit of a bummer for the fans out there that enjoyed Miller's work on Deadpool. Who will replace him? Who should?

Sources from The Hollywood Reporter also say that "the story takes place years after the adventures of the show, with the Captain now a washed up hasbeen who needs the kids more than they need him."

Chris Pratt and Ryan Reynolds Continue to Show Us They're a Couple Real Life Superheroes

Honestly torn over who we love more at this point...Ryan Reynolds or Chris Pratt. Both of these guys are real life superheroes, and continue to display an incredible ability to balance the demands of being A-list celebrities, with touching the lives of fans who fell upon hard times, and bad luck. Yesterday we ran a post on Ryan Reynolds who shared a heartwarming tribute to his 14 year old fan (and friend) that'd lost his battle with cancer; and today we've got Star Lord. Love these guys!

A legend dressed up like the Caped Crusader himself has taken to the streets to ease the troubled minds of children traumatized by 'evil clowns.' BBC Cumbria reports:

"It appears a superhero has swooped in, determined to help youngsters sleep easy tonight. Cumbria Superheroes, a costume company, has sent ‘Batman’ out and about on the town’s streets to fight off the evil clowns. The man behind it insists he is not a vigilante, but is hoping to give children some reassurance that they are safe."

Here are a couple pics too:

The team is definitely going crazy on some sort of twisted giant space squid monster here. The picture is a bit reminscent of the 'Old God's' from the Cancerverse -- an alternate reality with its first appearance in the Marvel Cosmic corner of comic book universe:



All I know for sure here, is you've gotta love Baby Groot!

During a Facebook livestream Vin Diesel went ahead and spilt the beans on what we can expect regarding Guardians of the Galaxy v Avengers for upcoming film, Infinity War:

"Next year you've got 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' coming and that whole concept started from you all saying 'when are you gonna be in a Marvel movie?'" he recalled. "And you remember the first picture after that Marvel meeting that I had where I was standing [with] the Avengers thing in the back -- some of you can look up that picture…there was this old Avengers copy that was behind me in that picture if you look back on my Facebook page you can find that."

"What's gonna be surreal is that picture is going to come to pass because now the Guardians will be included in 'Avengers: Infinity War' and that's incredibly exciting. Incredibly exciting. Incredibly exciting and something that if you were a part of our page you knew before everybody," he added.
