X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner updates The Wolverine, Deadpool - HitFix.com
Another looming spin-off of the "X-Men" franchise is the previously-announced "Deadpool" film, with visual effects artist Tim Miller attached to direct. Ryan Reynolds played the role in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine", and Shuler Donner told me she can't imagine anyone else but him taking on the part.
"Absolutely, yeah," she responded when I asked whether Reynolds was still scheduled to portray the comic-book mercenary. "I can't imagine...who else could play Wade Wilson?"
She also stressed they would be staying true to the unpredictable character by making the film itself a wild and woolly affair.
"We're working on getting it ready, and presenting some things to the studio, cause we're gonna give it a little bit of a different look," she said. "It's a different kind of movie. If you know 'Deadpool'...it's true to 'Deadpool'. So you know, it'll be violent, and outrageous, and funny, and all that. So we're sort of putting it all together now."
"Swamp Thing" Envelops Yanick Paquette - Comic Book Resources
Cool.The plan is, from the start, and I don’t want any excuses, that there are going to be fill-in artists. From the start, I told everyone, I’m not going to do this thing monthly. I just can’t. We need a fill-in guy to help me out. I will do all the covers and I will do the first arc, the first two issues. I will do part of the third. I won’t do the fourth. I will do the sixth and seventh issues. I won’t do #8. I will do #9. It’s really just a back and forth collaboration. I would have loved to do it all, frankly. The story is that good. I would have loved to do everything, but I couldn’t. So Scott, [Editor] Matt [Idelson] and I devised a plan that we will have fill-ins, but in a logical fashion instead of just hurting the book by suddenly jamming someone in. Where there is a flashback or something like that, we will try to make it as logical, and artistically valuable, as possible. That’s the plan.
Newsarama.com : Catching Up With Brian K Vaughan & His New Comic Book SAGA
I didn't realize how much I missed this man's writings until I read this interview. Can't wait for his new book.Vaughan: Actually, I don’t think people should support work just because it’s creator owned. There are some pretty ****ty creator-owned books out there. That said, I do think writers and artists tend to do their best work on creator-owned books because nothing is as creatively, emotionally, and – surprisingly – financially rewarding as working on characters that you helped bring into this world. But I also think Mike Costa’s Cobra is one of the best comics being published today, and a licensed book about evil toys from my childhood is pretty much the opposite of creator owned, so I’m not a fundamentalist. Good work is rare, so support it wherever you find it.
