Deadpool & X-Men updates from Shuler-Donner…

Finally! Some word!!!

Wade-Wilson-Deadpool-x-men-origins-wolverine-4782040-1280-853

NewsinFilm has the scoop courtesy of an interview with Empire:

…Shuler-Donner confirms Hugh Jackman will be headed to Japan to shoot on location for X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2, or whatever the title will eventually be.  The comic book storyline centers on the clawed mutant falling for Mariko Yashida, the heiress to the Yakuza crime family.

“Wolverine will be fighting in a different style to what we’ve seen before,” she said, indicating a battle between him and Mariko’s father, Shingen Yashida.  It will involve “samurai, ninja, katana blades, different forms of martial arts — mano-a-mano, extreme fighting.” This plot also suggests a possible showdown with mutant supervillain Silver Samurai, but maybe I’m just stretching it.  After all, who doesn’t want to see mutant ninjas?..

Highlights from the Empire interview (go read the whole thing!!!):

On Deadpool: “I don’t see it as a problem that Ryan [Reynolds] is also playing Green Lantern. I mean, look at Harrison Ford – he was in Stars Wars and Indiana Jones at the same time and everyone was fine with that. Green Lantern could not be more different to Wade Wilson. Green Lantern is a guy who finds a ring and is thrust into this world, much like Spider-Man. Wade Wilson is a bad ass, a wise-cracking mercenary, who will go out and kill anyone for money. But the thing about him is that, underneath it all, and he wouldn’t want you to know this, sometimes he’s not such a bad ass after all.”

On Wolverine 2: “It’s actually the story we wanted to use for the first Wolverine film, but [Fox head honcho] Tom Rothman preferred to set the character up with an origin story first. ”

On X-Men: First Class: “We want it to be like the recent, darker Potters. It should not be a kiddie movie: we’re in the X-Men world so you can’t suddenly change the tone. The First Class comics are really fun — they’re funnier than any other comics I’ve read. Basically in each one the kids are fighting strange villains, sometimes it’s aliens, sometimes it’s monsters. I want to get a flavour of that world.”

More on Deadpool:

“I want to ignore the version of Deadpool that we saw in Wolverine and just start over again. Reboot it. Because this guy talks, obviously, and to muzzle him would be insane….

RIO WINS!!! CHICAGO ELIMINATED IN FIRST ROUND!!! WOOHOO!!!Update 7:IOC Video Presentations; Lula says yes we can Brazil!

Update: Remarks from the WH after returning from Copenhagen:

Update: Victor Davis Hanson neatly encapsulates our thoughts on how hypocritical it was for TOTUS to try to take the games from Rio in light of his constant harangues on America:

1) Obama’s brand is trans-nationalism and an “America is not exceptional” multiculturalism. According to his worldview, it makes sense that a South American country — especially a powerful, ascendant country such as Brazil — should at last have its turn at hosting the Olympics. It did not seem consistent that a politician who had reached out to the Castros, Chávez, Morales, and Ortega, in parochial fashion, would lobby for his own hometown over a “yes, we can” Latin American initiative, especially one involving an exciting city such as Rio…

TalkLeft says Chicago spent 50 Million on the bid! WAY TO GO THERE MAYOR DALEY! How many JOBS could have been created with that money? unreal.

12:51pm EST: RIO WINS!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS RIO AND SOUTH AMERICA!!! Hope to see you in 2016!!

Uhm someone tell Jarret and Daley to go round up the Obots in Chicago they are still standing there LIVE on Fox holding Chicago 2016 signs up, lol and dont worry anyone who is sad America will have the games again as we have had 7 times already..(note- N America has had them 7 times, USA 5)

Wolverine Sequel – writer of X-Men tapped for new film…

x-men-origins-wolverine-20080227111118055

Good start with McQuarrie writing 🙂 Wolvie, Gambit and Rogue are my faves…Cannot wait for Deadpool...

MTVSplash!:

When Hugh Jackman told MTV News that some exciting people were attached to the “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” sequel, we didn’t expect to find out about any of them this quickly—but some big “Wolverine 2” news has hit the wire!

…In a repeat of their “Wolverine” pairing, Jackman will produce the sequel alongside Lauren Shuler Donner. No stranger to the X-Men universe, McQuarrie was one of several uncredited screenwriters on the 2000 “X-Men” film, which he worked on alongside his frequent collaborator, director Bryan Singer. While McQuarrie’s attachment is certainly interesting on its own, what it could mean about a potential return to the franchise for Singer is also worth contemplating….

Will Bryan Singer be back as well?

…Back in May, the director told MTV News he “would love to return to that universe,” making a decision to rejoin Fox’s X-Men franchise that much more likely—especially with so many uncertainties surrounding a potential sequel to his most recent comic book movie, “Superman Returns.”…

zap2it:

…trades are abuzz with news that Hugh Jackman will return (and produce) for a second movie about comic-book character Wolverine….

The film ended with one of two teasers, depending on your theater: One showed Deadpool’s survival, and the other followed Wolvie to Japan, echoing a famous storyline in the comic books from the 1980s.

The second “Wolverine” movie would follow that plot, with the Marvel Comics superhero learning the code of the samurai. Chris McQuarrie, who wrote the first “X-Men” movie, has been tapped to write this one as well…
