One of Fox’s many X-Men related films is the hotly anticipated “Deadpool” film. Recently it was announced that Canadian born actor Ryan Reynolds will star as Wade Wilson/ Deadpool. We also know that the film will be directed by Tim Miller and has a targeted release date of February 2016. Now come word of when and where the film will shoot. “The 38-year-old actor is set to shoot the X-Men spin-off Deadpool in his hometown of Vancouver beginning in late March. The movie, has booked two months at North Shore Studios.”
Meanwhile, another Marvel property The Fantastic Four, will have a reboot film released this year. Specifically on August 7, 2015. Despite having an extremely talented director Josh Trank, with a talented cast on board, fans seem determined that this film will be an absolute disaster. This sentiment has only grown since it has been revealed that reshoots are taking place, and the absence of a teaser trailer. The films writer and producer Simon Kinberg, recently addressed these two concerns. ” “To confirm – Fantastic Four will be doing 3-4 days of additional photography with director Josh Trank and some key cast members. We are very excited about the film and can’t wait for you to see what we’ve been up to. And you will be able to do that very soon as I can confirm here that the teaser will be on Kingsman in theaters February 13.” Meanwhile, Mark Millar, famed comic book writer and special consultant for Fox’s Marvel properties, has immense trust and faith in director Josh Trank’s ability and vision; “Josh Trank the guy who is directing it, is a really smart guy. He and I spent a wee bit of time together when I was first doing this job, about a year and a half ago. And, what I think Fox is doing is very clever. They’ll get a great director on board. Like, a lot of people trust the character and just think this brand is going to be fine. But you can’t trust the brand because the brand can be done badly, you know. But if you get a good director that is the cornerstone you build everything on. And with Bryan Singer doing the X-Men or James Mangold doing The Wolverine, Josh Trank doing Fantastic Four – it all feels in very good hands. It all comes down to the director. It’s the same characters in all of these movie but the work stands or falls based on the director, and Josh is fantastic! What he is going to do is unlike anything anyone is anticipating. There is a cut kicking around but I haven’t seen it yet. So, I’m expecting big things. Unlike most fandom, I look forward to seeing what Josh Trank has in store for Marvel’s first family, hope the film does well and puts The Fantastic Four franchise on a successful trajectory going forward.
