I don’t talk much about how I feel about Deadpool, but since his movie is opening this weekend, I thought I’d share my hopes and fears.
Yesterday was, of course, the Super Bowl. While our readers here at Nerd & Tie are a mixed bag about whether or not they cared about the content of the actual game (if the three of us who host the podcast here are any indicator it should be about one out of three), I’m pretty sure that everyone who reads this blog is interested in the various superhero and scifi movie ads that aired during the commercial breaks.
Because, y’know, this site has “Nerd” in the URL.
So rather than making you hunt down all the various spots you may have missed because you either didn’t watch the game or had to pee during the multitude of commercial breaks, we’ve collected the ones we assume will be of the most interest to you.
And the Gods of Egypt one too, just because. Continue reading The Super Bowl Ads You May Have Missed
Look, we’re going to admit it – we totally took a long holiday weekend, and decided to spend time with our families instead of… well… you. Don’t take it personally. You’re anonymous people on the internet — and our families actually know where we live.
Because of that though, we didn’t get a chance to post this new Deadpool trailer when it came out on Christmas Day. So instead we’re posting it now. Because reasons.
It’s similar to the first Deadpool trailer we got back in August, and y’know, it’s super Deadpool-y.
So yeah, that’s about it.
Deadpool hits theaters February 12, 2016.
On this fortnight’s installment of the podcast, we discuss the new Deadpool trailer, how we’re grateful that we won’t have to watch Uncle Ben die in the next Spider-Man movie, the bizarreness of a post-Apocalyptic adaptation of Little Women (you read that right), how The Dark Tower film(s) seem finally on track, Galacticon’s bizarre staff drama, Anime California’s inappropriate actions towards Summoner’s Cafe, and how we’re all super happy to be attending Geek.kon!
It’ll be fun. We have some big news for you there.

Yesterday we were teased with a trailer for the Deadpool trailer, but now… we have the ACTUAL trailer to share.
It’s pretty much the same thing we saw via shakey cam from SDCC, but now in less-shakey form. The trailer is violent, funny, and kind of awesome. It looks like Deadpool is finally going to get the onscreen treatment he deserves.
Deadpool arrives early next year.
Deadpool has taken a long while to finally come together, but the X-Men spinoff starring Ryan Reynolds actually started shooting earlier this year in Vancouver.
Well, it looks like the film has wrapped at least principal photography, as Reynolds tweeted out the following earlier today:

I never really thought I’d be excited for a Deadpool film (because honestly, these days I have a bit of Deadpool fatigue), but I kind of am.
Deadpool arrives in theaters February 12, 2016.
If you were ever worried that Fox’s forthcoming adaptation of Deadpool starring Ryan Reynolds wouldn’t have the right tone, you don’t need to worry any longer. I mean, we still don’t know if the movie will be any good or not, but they’re at least trying for the right thing.
How do I know? Well, Ryan Reynolds tweeted out the first official image of himself dressed up in the Deadpool costume:

Yeah… I think they’re getting it right.
Deadpool, which is currently in production in Vancouver, should hit theaters in 2016.
On this installment of the podcast, we talk about Spider-man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the weird Wheel of Time Pilot that aired, the Master returning in the Doctor Who Series 9 opener, the new Rick Flagg in Suicide Squad, the first picture of Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Deadpool-casting-pa-looza, and Nick and Pher’s trip to Anime Milwaukee.
And we read your mail on top of that.
It’s a long-ish episode this fortnight for sure.
THR is reporting that Morena Baccarin (Firefly, Stargate SG-1, Practically Everything on Genre TV) has been cast as the female lead in the upcoming Deadpool movie. Right now we don’t know anything about her character beyond “she’s the female lead,” but if anyone can pull off a mysterious, undefined part it’s Baccarin.
Morena Baccarin’s credits are mostly small screen stuff, but they are bountiful. Frankly, if you’re reading this blog, you’ve probably watched at least five things she’s appeared in… this week. She’s definitely a match for Ryan Reynolds, so this should be pretty entertaining.
I mean, assuming the script is good.
According to Screencrush, Deadpool, starring Ryan Reynolds in the titular role, will include fellow Marvel characters Colossus and Angel Dust.
There is no word if Daniel Cudmore will reprise the role of Colossus from the X-Men films, but actress (and former mixed martial artist) Gina Carano has been cast as Angel Dust. Most comics fans are familiar with Colossus, but Angel Dust is a more obscure — first appearing in 2002 as one of the Morlocks.
But hey, as long as the part is well written, it doesn’t really matter.
