    What If The Screenwriter Of An Oscar-Nominated Movie Wrote Your Comic But You Forgot To Tell Anyone? - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    That’s what happened with Supergirl today. Frank Hannah, writer of Cooler, a movie nominated for an Oscar and Golden Globe, as well as winning a bunch of critics awards wrote it, and no one bothered to tell anyone until it was published, with his name not even on the cover. Even now, no press release, no publicity, nothing.

    Regular artist Mahmud Asrar tweeted that it was a fill-in and that he’d be back with new writer Michael Alan Nelson. But it’s still rather odd.

    So not only will this line feature Warren Ellis and Mike McKone, but we can start to speculate as to who else… Joss Whedon? Brian Bendis?

    Neil Gaiman?

    Angela Joins The Marvel Universe, As Neil Gaiman And Brian Bendis Co-Write Guardians Of The Galaxy [UPDATE] - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    After Age Of Ultron, Angela will then become a cast member in the Guardians Of The Galaxy series for issue 5 at least, written by Brian Bendis… and now co-written by Neil Gaiman, representing his return to writing comics and writing for Marvel. Any more issues? No idea. Hell, Angela may even be in the movie, which may explain the legal issues mentioned earlier. But that’s just speculation.

    What isn’t speculation is that I understand from other sources that Angela won’t just be appearing in Guardians but will be touring the Marvel Universe in the year to come.
    What the... wow.

    Fialkov Left DC Comics Over Plans To Kill Off John Stewart, DC's Black Green Lantern - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    I have been told by a number of high profile industry sources that Fialkov was asked to change his upcoming story to one that killed off Green Lantern John Stewart, DC Comics’ most prominent black character. And that is why he quit.

    Ryan Reynolds Talks DEADPOOL and X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE | Collider

    Reynolds recently appeared on Empire’s podcast, in which he discussed the status of the Deadpool film:

    “I love Deadpool and there is a script that’s in development. But it’s so, so far into the R-rated zone… it’s a nearly NC-17 world and I just don’t know if the studio would ever risk their reputation doing it. We’ve been developing it and we would never wanna do it unless you could it that R-rated way, so…[The script has] got a similar tone [to Zombieland], almost. [Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick] wrote it and they developed it as well and, you know, it’s sitting there. You could do it for a pittance compared to the modern sort of epic scale superhero movies, but it’s about a guy who knows he’s in a movie and knows he’s in a comic book who is deeply mentally disturbed and hyper violent. And that’s tough to get by a studio.”

    This is essentially the same thing we’ve been hearing for the past few years, but it’s still disappointing to see that Fox hasn’t found a way to get this thing moving yet.

    The standalone film also presents a bit of a conundrum for the character, though, since Deadpool had a bit of an odd role in the underwhelming X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Reynolds talked about how the new film would address Wolverine:

    “I don’t think you can [fit it within the Deadpool story from Wolverine], because that character would really sully that whole world. The script is one rewrite away from Deadpool jumping across the desk at the studio executive and attacking him… But I’ve always wanted to do the movie just if only because Deadpool would get to do his own movie trailer. So that’s a thing that we were dying to do and we would love to be a part of that. I don’t know how it would fit though, no. In the current iteration of the script, it doesn’t address Wolverine – though it does address Deadpool’s appearance in Wolverine. Deadpool was not happy with Deadpool in Wolverine. He has a sort of a WTF!? moment with that.”

    So it sounds like Reese and Wernick’s script pretends like the events of Wolverine didn’t happen in canon, but it still addresses the film in the way that only Deadpool can. This script really sounds like a lot of fun and I sincerely hope it gets made someday.

    http://collider.com/deadpool-movie-d...-paul-wernick/

    Back in January 2012, we reported that Fox may have shot an 8-minute test for a Deadpool movie. Reese basically confirmed this earlier report, although he says the test was closer to three minutes. He also said that the test was right on the money for the movie they want to make:

    RHETT REESE: We have a phenomenal director in Tim Miller, who did about a 3-minute test for Fox, and Ryan came in to do the mo-cap for it and the voice. And it’s like the greatest three minutes ever. I look at the three minutes and I’m like, “That’s the movie, and it has to get made.” I think the biggest hurdle right now is convincing the-powers-that-be that it’s okay to have a hard-R rated movie within the Marvel Universe.

    Reese also said that they think the film could be made for a budget of about $50 million, which would account for the lower ticket sales due to the film’s R-rating. However, there’s still the matter of the film’s tone:

    REESE: I think there just has to be a tolerance for the outlier. There has to be a tolerance for this one project that’s not like all the other Marvel projects.

    PAUL WERNICK: Iron Man was like that when it came out. Tony Stark and the hard drinking, fast-talking billionaire was very different from all the other Marvel characters. And look what it became. And we feel that way about Deadpool.

    I would also note that Fox should consider that going against the grain could yield not only an unexpected hit, but more importantly, a new franchise.

    Also, for those who are doubtful about whether or not a Deadpool movie can work, the script, which leaked online, has received some positive attention:

    REESE: The script leaked online in some bizarre way that we haven’t figured out, so it’s very easily findable out there. It’s pretty much you go on Google and type in “Deadpool script” and you’ll find it. Not to say people should be doing that because it certainly wasn’t something we anticipated or enjoyed in the moment, but the Deadpool fans who found it think that it’s right in the wheelhouse of what a Deadpool movie should be. And so again, we’re just fighting that uphill battle to convince people, and be positive.

    I understand and can sympathize with Fox’s hesitation. When you put your neck out for a project, there’s the chance you can lose your head if the movie flops. But with a $50 million price tag (as Reynolds recently noted, a “pittance compared to the modern sort of epic scale superhero movies”) and older comic book fans who want an R-rated superhero flick, stalling on Deadpool feels like a wrong move on the studio’s part.
    It's tragic that this is being held back...Did Green Lantern ruin RR's pull so much that this movie will suffer for it????
