Deadpool, Preacher, G.I. Joe: June 1st Comic Reel

DEADPOOL

Actor Ryan Reynolds talked to Hitfix about working on the spin-off.  “I’m intimately involved with it,” Reynolds said.  “We’re just trying to break a story right now and figure out who the villain is going to be and all that stuff.  But, it’s going to be just like the comic books.  I’m gonna have a messed up face and you may see some flashbacks of Wade earlier in his life, but primarily what you see is what you get in the comics and that’s the goal.  And there is no better place to draw material from then the comics which are incredible.”

He also spoke with IGN, talking about the character.  “I would like to make him self-aware; I’d like to have a bit of a pop-culture air going on throughout the film. I mean, the greatest villain in a Deadpool comic is Deadpool. There’s a lot you can do there, but you’ve gotta ask, ‘Who’s the boss? Who’s the guy he’s going up against?’ But it’s breaking the fourth wall; it’s including all those things in a way that works, but it’s not nearly as hard as it sounds. It can really be done. And people tend to overlook the greatest resource we have, which is the comic book. If it can be done in the comic, it can be done on film in a way that’s just as much fun to watch for people who know nothing about the character than for people who are obsessed with the character.”

No release date announced.

PREACHER

Director Sam Mendes said he’s ready to direct his John August script at Columbia Pictures.  “I think it’s an incredible piece of material and I’m very hopeful about John’s script, so let’s keep our fingers crossed,” Mendes said.  “It would be impossible to do all nine volumes in one movie, that would be one long movie, and it wouldn’t do justice of it. It will not attempt to do all of it, but there’s so much wonderful stuff that I wouldn’t know what to leave out.”

No release date announced.

G.I. JOE: RISE OF COBRA

There was a new clip from the movie shown at the MTV Movie Awards, and the network has posted it online.

Starring Dennis Quaid, release date: August 7, 2009.

THOR

Co-writer Ashley Miller talked to CineFOOLS about his work on bringing Asgard to earth.  “Not in the sense that you’d want to see a generic ‘dark’ take on Thor,” Miller said, “but in the sense that you want to feel Thor’s rage when he rages. You want to see him fight like hell, and take as much he dishes out — maybe more. You want to have a visceral reaction to the guy, and what happens to him. You don’t want his adventures to be clean and antiseptic. You want to see the dirt, and grime and blood. You want to feel every bone crunching moment of every fight. And when he unleashes the storm, you want to feel like you’re seeing the power of a GOD at work.”

Actor Tom Middleston told The Daily Mail a little about being the god of mischief.  “Loki’s like a comic book version of Edmund in ‘King Lear,’ but nastier,” the actor said.  “Well, Loki’s skilled in black magic and sorcery. He’s a shape-shifter and has all sorts of super powers from the dark arts. He can turn clouds into dragons, things like that.  [Director] Ken [Branagh] wants Loki to have a lean and hungry look, like Cassius in Julius Caesar. Physically, he can’t be posing as Thor.”

Starring Chris Hemsworth, release date May 20, 2011.

TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN

MTV also spotlighted this summer’s giant robot spectacular at their Movie Awards, showcasing a new photo of The Fallen.

Directed by Michael Bay, release date: June 24, 2009.

SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD

Starring Michael Cera and Brandon Routh, release date: 2010.

THE DARK KNIGHT

No release date for the sequel announced.
