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...

Bryan Singer tweeted last night the new cast members in X-Men: Apocalypse. Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones), Tye Sheridan (Mud), and Alexandra Shipp (Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B), will join the James McAvoy led X-Men team in the 1980's as young versions of Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Storm.

Taking over for Famke Janssen, James Marsden, and Halle Berry, these three youngsters will join the team to take on the iconic villain Apocalypse. With Nicholas Hoult returning as Beast, this is the closest we'll ever get to the original line-up.

Empire Online confirmed through X-Men director Bryan Singer that flying fan-favorite, Angel will be appearing in next years X-Men: Apocalypse. He also confirmed that the winged mutant will be played by Ben Hardy.

Fans beware, Singer also let us know, "he’s not a very nice Angel! And that’s all I’ll say…" Based on that art, we think we might be lookin at Archangel, Apocalypse's right hand.

Director Bryan Singer took to Instagram to give fans a look at some behind the scenes of his new movie X-Men: Apocalypse. You'd think Game of Thrones would have taught Sophie Turner how to shoot a bow, but I guess she spends most of her hours being sexually menaced by creeps.

Check out the video:

In this newly released concept art for X-Men: Apocalypse, classic heroes Cyclops and Jean Grey are defending themselves against a flying assailant, but if you take a closer look that opponent appears to be Storm.

Like Cyclops and Jean Grey, Storm is a veteran member of the X-Men, so to see her fighting Xavier's team is very concerning. The team will be put up against Apocalypse, who will assemble his four horsemen in the film. Will the movie flip the story on its head, and make Storm a villain?
