Riz Ahmed Appreciates Ed Skrein Exiting the ‘Hellboy’ Movie
Ed Skrein’s casting into and then exit from the new Hellboy movie was a surprising, but necessary act of solidarity with his non-white comrades in the movie industry. Skrein admitted, in his statement, that he wasn’t aware that the character in question, Major Ben Daimio, was a person of color in Mike Mignola’s comics, and also said that he hoped the movie could find a different actor who better fit the bill.
Daniel Dae Kim in Talks for ‘Hellboy’s Ben Daimio
The new Hellboy movie hit a big of a snag a couple weeks ago when it cast Deadpool villain Ed Skrein as canonically Japanese-American character major Ben Daimio. Skrein has since stepped down from the role after he realized the implications of him playing a character of color, and the movie went back to square one to find a replacement. Good news: they have. Extremely good news: it’s Lost star Daniel Dae Kim.
Ed Skrein Responds to the ‘Hellboy’ Whitewashing Controversy
Neil Marshall’s Hellboy movie was off to such a good start (after a somewhat rocky beginning that made it look as if the franchise was unceremoniously whisked out of Guillermo del Toro’s hands). Each new cast addition was more exciting than the last — until a character of color was whitewashed, and all hell(boy) broke loose.
Ed Skrein Joins ‘Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen’
Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen is just chugging along, and it’s found yet another cast member to add to its roster. Ed Skrein, whom we last saw on our screens as bad dude Ajax in Deadpool (and as Game of Thrones’ Daario Naharis Mark 1), has been cast as B.P.R.D. Major Benjamin Daimio.
‘Deadpool’ Review: Faithful But Not Particularly Funny
Most comic book movies are meant to appeal to 12-year-olds. Deadpool is the first one feel like it was actually written by one. Gleefully puerile and deeply immature, it has plenty of what the MPAA calls “adult content,” but no actual content for adults; it’s just non-stop dick jokes (and ball jokes), bloody violence, and fourth wall breaks. In other words, it will be the favorite movie of 2016 of every underage boy who sneaks into it next weekend.
New ‘Deadpool’ Images Feature Axe-Wielding Ajax
The trailers for Deadpool have shown off the anti-superhero film’s anti-superhero sense of humor, some interesting supporting characters boasting some enhanced abilities, lots of violence, plenty of one-liners, and even a few glimpses of X-Men pal Colossus. And while we’ve seen a bit of Ed Skrein’s Ajax, we haven’t seen much of the fighting that goes on between the big bad and the Merc With a Mouth.
‘The Transporter Refueled’ Trailer: Why Hast Thou Forsaken Us, Jason Statham?
As much as we adore Jason Statham, we’ll never pretend that he’s picky about his projects. Roughly half of the time spent being a fan of that scowling, head-butting British import involves suffering through his poor choices. So it’s weird to watch the new trailer for The Transporter Refueled and realize that this was the point where Statham decided “Nah, I’m good,” removing the one and only thing that could possibly make us interested in a fourth movie in this series.
New ‘Deadpool’ Photos Officially Introduce the Cast
During Comic-Con, we got a peek at non-Deadpool characters from Deadpool via the film’s cast on Twitter. If you were hoping to see larger, better, more official versions of those photos — you’re in luck. 20th Century Fox has released a batch of high-res photos featuring the Merc With a Mouth and his supporting cast.
‘Deadpool’ Stars Reveal First Looks at Their Characters
If you pick up the special Comic-Con print edition of EW, you’ll be greeted with new photos from Deadpool, offering first looks at characters who are not Deadpool. We’ve previously seen photos of Negasonic Teenage Warhead, but thanks to the cast of the upcoming solo film, you can now check out those new photos from EW without a subscription.
'The Transporter Refueled' Trailer: The Transporter Returns
A new trailer for the latest installment in the Transporter franchise has arrived, filled with crazy car stunts and crazier action, and a brand new leading man by way of Game of Thrones star Ed Skrein. Skrein takes on the Jason Statham role in The Transporter Refueled, which looks pretty much like every other Transporter movie, minus Statham.
