Kevin Feige Says the Secret to ‘Deadpool’s Success Wasn’t in the R-Rating

To say that Deadpool was a hit because of its rating is a bit reductive, and honestly kind of insulting to the filmmakers, who managed to achieve something special by delivering an entertaining film based on a character whose only previous exposure to audiences left a bad taste in everyone’s mouths. Still, that R-rating drew a fair amount of attention, leading some to wonder if Marvel might take a similar risk. Disney’s Bob Iger previously said that fans shouldn’t count on an R-rated Marvel movie, and Kevin Feige echoes that sentiment while addressing the real reason why Deadpool was so successful.

SNL Revives Dana Carvey’s Church Lady to Judge Our Choices Accordingly

It’s been several years since Dana Carvey’s Church Lady graced us with her benevolent presence, but Church Chat finally returns to SNL — and not a moment too soon. With Donald Trump running for president (what a world) and pop culture run amok, we, as a nation, are truly in need of sage wisdom from Carvey’s shrewdly devout Church Lady.

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Removed This Anakin Skywalker Easter Egg

It’s not uncommon for trailers to feature scenes that never make it to theaters, or for specific scenes to look slightly different than they did in early teasers, owing to changes in visual FX during production. Such is the case with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and while some of the scenes featured in the trailers weren’t included in the theatrical version, those deleted scenes are included on the new Blu-ray release. But there was one thing from the initial trailers that wasn’t restored: a reference to George Lucas’ prequels.

Paramount Is Reportedly Already Planning ‘Star Trek 4’

The latest chapter of the current Star Trek saga doesn’t hit theaters until this summer, but it looks like Paramount is hedging their bets as the studio is already (reportedly) plotting the next installment in the franchise. Although fans don’t seem to be totally wowed by the trailers for Star Trek Beyond, it would appear that the studio is quite pleased with Justin Lin’s direction for the upcoming sequel — but with Lin attached to helm that new Space Jam movie (ugh, why), Paramount may need another director to take on Trek.

This Zack Snyder Interview From 2008 Proves That ‘Batman vs. Superman’ Is Just Another ‘Watchmen’

When something goes wrong, we often revisit and analyze the past to find warning signs that were previously overlooked. If you apply that logic to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Man of Steel, for instance, then you could find yourself reading old interviews with Zack Snyder to try and figure out if maybe we knew all along that these were the kinds of superhero movies he was going to make...

New ‘Star Wars: Episode 8’ Set Photos Show Off the Millennium Falcon

Just a couple of days ago, director Rian Johnson shared two new photos from the set of Star Wars: Episode 8, one of which featured a Resistance X-Wing and a mysterious pilot. Today brings another sneak peek from the set, this time offering an unofficial look at a much bigger, much more notable spacecraft — you know, just in case you were concerned, for whatever reason, that the Millennium Falcon might be sitting this one out.

Read Ryan Reynolds’ Moving Tribute to Teen ‘Deadpool’ Fan Who Lost Cancer Battle

It’s a touching, familiar scenario: a young person coping with a grave illness has their wish granted and gets to meet the actors who play their favorite comic book heroes on the big screen. Sometimes, they get to see a new movie before anyone else, and while our hearts are warmed by the photos and stories about it, we tend to forget why they were treated to a special private screening of The Force Awakens or, in this case, Deadpool. Ryan Reynolds has written an incredibly moving tribute to the memory of his friend, 13-year-old Connor McGrath, a Deadpool fan who has sadly lost his battle with cancer.

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Star Tye Sheridan Has Signed on For Two More ‘X-Men’ Films

Director Bryan Singer and producer Simon Kinberg have previously expressed a desire to keep the X-Men franchise going, as they transition their focus onto the younger cast of mutants. That includes Tye Sheridan, who plays Scott Summers, aka Cyclops, in X-Men: Apocalypse. According to Sheridan, that film may just be the beginning of his role in the franchise, as the up and coming actor has signed on for two more sequels.

Robert Downey Jr. Is Down For ‘Iron Man 4,’ So Just Forget All That Other Stuff He Said

For the last couple of years, Robert Downey Jr. has said that there are no plans for a fourth Iron Man movie — and he hasn’t appeared to be interested in making another one, to be honest. And that fact is seemingly supported by his Marvel contract, which does not include another solo outing beyond Iron Man 3. When (and if) Marvel re-ups the actor’s contract, that could very well be subject to change, when (and if) Downey Jr. is open to it. That time appears to be now.

‘Ghostbusters’ Featurette Introduces Chris Hemsworth’s ‘Big Dumb’ Hunky Receptionist

It’s okay to call Chris Hemsworth’s character in the new Ghostbusters movie big and dumb — those are his words, not mine. In a brilliant bit of casting, the actor sometimes known as Thor plays administrative assistant to Paul Feig’s ghost-busting crew, and a new featurette from the upcoming film will help you get to know Hemsworth and his earnestly goofy sense of humor (and ridiculous good looks, to be honest).
