Peak TV is reportedly making it way more dangerous for stuntpeople to do their jobs

When we talk about the current glut of cable, streaming, and network television options—often summarized with the John Landgraf-penned nickname “Peak TV”—it’s usually from the perspective of consumers and curators. It can, after all, be bewildering, frustrating, and sometimes just plain exhausting to deal with the…

Ryan Reynolds shot some new scenes for that PG-13 version of Deadpool 2

Back in September, we reported that Fox had given Alita: Battle Angel’s original pre-delay release date of December 21 to an “untitled Deadpool movie,” with those in the know claiming it would be some kind of family-friendly, PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2 with a Princess Bride-themed framing device starring grown-up Fred…

It's Rumor Time: Is that scamp Deadpool planning something family-friendly for Christmas?

Today, Fox announced that it was delaying the big-eyed androids of Alita: Battle Angel from December 21 to February 14, with an “untitled Deadpool movie” replacing it on the schedule. That’s crazy, of course, because Deadpool 2 just came out earlier this year and December is way too soon to have a brand new Deadpool …

Ryan Reynolds takes on Honest Trailers in the Honest Trailer for Deadpool 2

Boy, the Honest Trailers gang really stepped in it this time, huh? They thought they could make a video poking fun at Deadpool 2, a movie about a superhero who isn’t afraid to break the fourth wall and make rude comments, without incurring the wrath of Deadpool himself? Unfortunately for them, Deadpool actually showed…

Weekend Box Office: Deadpool 2 dethrones Infinity War, still can't beat its predecessor

If Americans are suffering from a bad case of superhero fatigue, they have a funny way of showing it. The first half of 2018 has been marked by a succession of massively successful superhero tentpoles, each one breaking a record set by the one before, to the extent that breaking box-office records doesn’t really mean…

Deadpool 2's director swears you will someday get to see the movie's baby Hitler scene

It’s easy to think that anything goes in a vulgar series like Deadpool, which has distinguished itself within the Marvel universe by spraying the screen with gobs of gore and blush-worthy dialogue. Believe it or not, however, there were some bits that definitively crossed the blurry line that star Ryan Reynolds and…

Terry Crews talks Deadpool 2, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and toxic masculinity on The Daily Show

Human-shaped charm mountain Terry Crews was typically delightful in his sit-down with Trevor Noah on Wednesday’s Daily Show. Noah ran down Crews’ seemingly endless list of accomplishments (former NFL player, painter, furniture designer, sitcom star, former-future POTUS) as the two talked over what’s arguably Crews’…

Deadpool leaps into The Late Show’s continuity to take over Stephen Colbert’s Trump jokes

Fans of the Marvel not-quite superhero Deadpool know that the wise-cracking, Looney Tunes-immortal “merc with a mouth”’s real superpower is cheeky self-awareness. After Wade Wilson’s initial conception as yet another 1990s “extreme” antihero (and Deathstroke knockoff), Deadpool’s popularity grew in proportion to his…

Josh Brolin and Ryan Reynolds are really good at insulting each other

There’s a profane, adolescent energy to the Deadpool franchise, and the forthcoming sequel’s bizarre marketing campaign reflects that juvenile unpredictability. Over the past few weeks, star Ryan Reynolds has danced with Celine Dion, “spoiled” his own movie, and dressed up like a unicorn on South Korean TV, and now…
