    The ‘Deadpool’ VFX Team Gave Maximum Effort, See For Yourself In BTS Video

    They say that some of the best CGI is the kind you never notice, and Deadpool certainly had that in spades. While we could all tell that the film’s acrobatic stunts, Deadpool’s moving eyepieces, and supporting character Colossus were all generated with computer imagery, you’d be surprised at how much work went into the backgrounds, filling […] More

    What Hollywood Should Learn From Deadpool

    Essentially, Fox has nothing to lose by playing it safe, but apparently they don’t have much to lose by backing the ugly underdog, either. The best case scenario? The improbable success of Deadpool gives Fox a mandate to make superhero media weirder, smarter, and more subversive. Worst case: we get another Avengers clone with more sex and blood. Both scenarios make Fox a boatload of box-office money, so why not get a little weird? More

      In 1996, relatively alright Baltimore Orioles Outfielder Brady Anderson had a career year, posting off-the-chart offensive numbers from out of nowhere. Previously hitting around .240 on a good day, and a home run high of 21 in 1992, he put up a .297/.396/1.034 line, 50 home runs, 110 RBIs, 37 doubles, 117 runs and […] More

    Think ‘Deadpool’ Was Tim Miller’s First Superhero Project? Think Again

    With Deadpool’s frankly insane levels of success with fans and at the box office, director Tim Miller is already becoming a household name.

    To Better Know an Anti-Hero: Deadpool

    Deadpool’s road to super-stardom, from a 90s-riffic Liefeld character to movie star and perennial bestseller is an odd, almost-unprecedented one. Without a doubt the most successful (in terms of revenue-generation, multi-media exposure and overall popularity) solo Marvel character introduced after Wolverine, Deadpool was born amidst the dying gasps of New Mutants, a series that was being put to pasture in order to transform it into X-Force, a move intended to placate superstar artist Rob Liefeld by giving him a brand new series in which he could cut loose in EXTREME 90s fashion.
