The huge success of Deadpool, both financially and critically, came only as a result of years of preparation for Ryan Reynolds. He had been impatiently waiting and preparing since the awful X-Men: Origins to return to the role of Wade Wilson.

So it should come as no surprise that after all that, Reynolds is in no hurry to give up the role.

"I would love to play Deadpool for as long as they would let me play Deadpool," he told Variety. "We have outlines and stories for a number of different films."

Since it was announced that the newest outing for Wolverine Logan would be following in suit of Deadpool and going into R rated territory, Reynolds has been keen on the idea of doing a movie staring both the characters. Hugh Jackman, who has announced that Logan will be his last movie as Wolverine (we'll believe it when we see it), is far more uncertain.

"I'm hesitating," said Jackman, "because I could totally see how that's the perfect fit. But the timing may 
be wrong."

We're slightly more skeptical than Reynolds is regarding how well that movie would work. Wolvierine relies on a very serious atmosphere to effectively make his brooding personality work on screen. A movie in the fourth wall breaking, witty, sardonic tone of Deadpool probably just wouldn't work. It takes more than mashing two R rated superhero movies together to make a good film.

We'd definitely need to see how Logan plays out before any of it would sound like a remotely good idea.



But most of our doubt probably comes from how hard it is to forget the last time these two characters were on screen together...

After a disappointing performance compared to the previous Days of Future Past FOX might be ready to mash the reset button, just like your little brother did when he was losing in Mario Kart 64.

The mediocre reception of the film coincides with the expiration of the contracts of Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, and Nicholas Hoult, all the biggest stars of of the franchise. The films' director Brian Singer has also departed the franchise for other projects, leaving the series in even greater flux.

If we're being honest, we wish that FOX would just admit defeat and sell off the rights so that the Marvel Cinematic Universe can fill that X-Men sized hole in it.

These Doodles Prove That The X-Men Would Make One Cute Disney Movie



Someone call Fox. Hugh Jackman may be done playing Wolverine after his next movie, but that doesn't mean the fun needs to stop. In his free time, artist Randy Bishop likes to doodle the X-Men, and his cutesy style is almost a dead ringer for the animated action flicks of the late 90's (Iron Giant, Treasure Planet).

Sony is doubling down on Spider-Man making both a new live-action and animated film franchise... Why not, X-Men?

French actress Léa Seydoux from Blue is the Warmest Color and the upcoming 24th James Bond pic, Spectre, is reported to have been offered the female lead in Fox's upcoming Gambit solo film. Something of a passion project for Channing Tatum, the actor has been attached to star since the movie was nothing more than a rumor floating around Hollywood.

Léa will reportedly be playing Bella Donna Boudreaux, the daughter of the leader of a New Orleans' assassin's guild, and Gambit's first love. The two are married to unite her father's guild and the theives' guild to which Gambit belongs. Things quickly turn south and after the nuptials the card throwing cajun must flee.



Bella Donna, of course, has her own mutant powers similar to Gambit's, plasma blasts. Will she be an aide to or antagonist of Tatum's anti-hero? The best bet is on a little of both.

We'll see how Channing's cajun accent compares to the natural accent of the French actress. If she accepts the role, this movie could sound weirder than Costner's Robin Hood.

Actress Olivia Munn took to Instagram again to show off her superhero training skills. Munn will be playing Psylocke, a psychic, ninja, and mutant who appears to be Apocalypse's right hand lady.

A couple weeks ago we saw Munn's sword skills, and thank Jeebus (aka Bryan Singer), she's not skipping leg day.

The production on X-Men: Apocalypse is chugging right along for its 2016 release date and we've got another behind-the-scenes picture from the maestro himself, director Bryan Singer. In a landscape of huge digital effects pictures (looking at you Jurassic World) it's great to see a blockbuster going old school with its set design.

"This takes me back to #raidersofthelostark #notallgreenscreen," he tweeted. 

Frankly, it's leaving us with a tender feeling inside.
