Behold, the gag reel. Long a staple of the home video market, the gag reel was perhaps at its most popular in the 1990s, when Jackie Chan released a string of movies that included painful outtakes during the closing credits. When studios realized that they could package an entire DVD release around the special feature menu, the gag reel became a mainstay of any comedy releases over the last 15 years. And because Deadpool was one big improvised joke with enough physical humor to make Mel Brooks blush, it was a natural fit for the film’s Blu-ray release as well.
Following in the footsteps of Kingsman: The Secret Service, Deadpool is another wildly profane and gleefully violent film hitting theaters in February, hoping to attract a very similar audience. And as this new clip proves, the Merc With a Mouth’s solo outing has something else in common with Kingsman: a female lead who makes a joke about anal. Out of context, it’s hard to tell if this joke succeeds as planned, but this brief scene does show off some of the chemistry between Ryan Reynolds and Morena Baccarin.
Lest you forget, we’re just a month away from the release of Deadpool, with Ryan Reynolds and director Tim Miller promising an R-rated, gleefully violent, totally profane and very faithful film featuring a proper version of the Merc With a Mouth. And while the latest TV spot reiterates all of those fine points, a new set of satirical posters reveal that Deadpool is also something you probably never considered: the greatest love story of our time.
The 12 Days of Deadpool may have ended on Christmas Day with the reveal of those red and green band trailers, but that hasn’t stopped 20th Century Fox from dropping new images and details almost daily since then. Today brings a few more images, including one of Morena Baccarin, as well as a report on the official runtime of the Merc With a Mouth’s R-rated solo outing.
FOX's 'Gotham' Season 2' tries to narrow its focus with a "Rise of the Villains," but proves just as mean-spirited and messy as before. Our early spoiler-free review, before the Bat-prequel returns for another round in Monday's premiere!
Gotham hasn’t proven particularly shy with the lion’s share of Season 2 footage and teasers, but at least a few faces have been missing from its city streets. No longer, as the full character gallery for Gotham Season 2 brings Two-Face, Lucius Fox and more back into the fold, along with some new menace for our future Batman.
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.
FOX’s Gotham lay plenty of groundwork in Season 1 for Batman’s beginning (like, way too much in fact), but its first major Season 2 change proves a welcome one. Not only will Morena Baccarin reprise her role as future Bat-ally Dr. Leslie Thompkins, she’ll even stick around as a series regular.
It’s fitting that Deadpool’s main super-power is his accelerated healing factor; you just can’t kill this guy. For years, they talked about making a Deadpool movie featuring Ryan Reynolds (who played a largely unrecognizable version of the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine). For years, Deadpool languished in development; long enough to kill most projects. But that damn healing factor kept Deadpool alive.
