With New Mutants pushed back to 2019, Fox is putting all their energy into prepping their next big X-Men property: Deadpool 2. According to a new report, that includes a round of reshoots to expand the roles of two new characters — Josh Brolin’s Cable and Zazie Beetz’s Domino. Although reshoots are a typical part of the production process, particularly on big-budget blockbusters, the details here may shed some light on why Deadpool 2 didn’t perform well at recent test screenings in Los Angeles.
When you gather ’round the table to shove turkey into your face with friends and loved ones, what will you give thanks for? Your career, your relationships, just being alive, or maybe the fact that a wild R-rated superhero movie starring Ryan Reynolds as a mouthy mercenary became such a massive hit that we’re actually getting a sequel. (Don’t say that. Your mom will be pissed.) In keeping with the Thanksgiving holiday spirit, the first poster for Deadpool 2 has arrived, and it’s fully prepped for turkey time.
If you’ve got a serious case of the Mondays, then Ryan Reynolds has just what you need to turn that frown upside down. Deadpool 2’s leading man has unveiled our first official look at Josh Brolin’s Cable, whose frown remains firmly planted in the downward position, seemingly (and predictably) unimpressed with Reynolds’ signature snark. Regardless of his grouchy demeanor, Brolin does look pretty awesome as the Merc With a Mouth’s classic foil.
Dang, Thanos got shredded. Gone is the lazy titan who can’t be bothered to get his giant purple butt up off that excessively swanky space chair. As teased in the post-credits scene from Captain America: Civil War, the new Thanos means business, and thanks to a new statue unveiled at D23, you can see just how serious he is about obliterating the MCU in Avengers: Infinity War.
