Cable Confirmed For Deadpool 2

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:21668:]]

Assuming there is a sequel to Tim Miller and Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool, it’s basically confirmed the movie will feature Cable.

While commenting on the recent Deadpool trailer, director Tim Miller mentioned if Cable isn’t in the sequel, fans will riot.

“There aren’t really many definitive Deadpool villains, apart from Cable,” Miller told Empire. “If we don’t put Cable in Deadpool 2 I think we’ll be run out of town on a rail.” 

A sequel for Deadpool has yet to be green lit, but if the trailer reaction is anything to go by, Deadpool should do a lot better than Fantastic Four.

Cable has been tied to Deadpool since the character’s origins as Deadpool was hired to attack Cable and the New Mutants. The two have also been paired together in various Marvel comic book series, with Marvel recently announcing a new six-issue digital-first Deadpool and Cable “Split Second” series as well for October.

“Deadpool” has a February 12, 2016 release directed by Tim Miller starring Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, TJ Miller as Weasel, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Morena Baccarin as Copycat and Ed Skrein as Ajax.

Synopsis:

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Cable Might Appear In X-Men: Apocalypse Says Simon Kinberg

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:17309:]]

Good news for the fans of the Marvel Comics character Cable as the mutant has a chance of appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Actually, Cable almost appeared in X-Men: Days Of Future Past well.

“We also talked about including him in Days of Future Past,” Simon Kinberg, writer on DOFP and Apocalypse, told Yahoo. “I will say, we love the character, we’d love to find a place for him in these movies, but I cannot confirm or deny which characters will actually be in Apocalypse until I read some spoilers!”

Another possible mutant that could appear is one that was initially teased in X-Men: Days Of Future Past, but ended up getting cut.

Scarlet Witch.

“When we made Days of Future Past there is a reference to her in the scene when they’re at Quicksilver’s house, but we ended up pulling it out because like a lot of things it had to be sacrificed for the main momentum of the film,” he said. “It’s a character we all love, because everyone loves Quicksilver so much. The more we can do to explore his family, the better. So maybe.”

One more possible mutant could also be Psylocke as she was included in a version of DOFP as well.

“She’s a fan favorite, and also a favorite of mine,” Kinberg acknowledged. “We have a small part that she plays in Last Stand, and we talked about including her in Days of Future Past quite seriously, actually. There was a version of the script she was in, and we even auditioned some actors in Montreal. But we didn’t feel there was enough of a part she would play in a movie that was already full of many, many mutants. 

“She has a cool power. I know Bryan thinks she’s a neat character so there’s certainly a chance she’ll be in an X-Men movie some day. Hopefully there’ll be a lot of X-Men movies and there’s lot of mutants we’re yet to fully explore onscreen, even if they’ve had cameos before. Now we’re making more films there’s a chance to dig deeper.”

Two characters that won’t be seen: Kitty Pryde and Bishop with the reason given X-Men: Apocalyps will focus on the younger generation of characters from X-Men: First Class.

“X-Men: Apocalypse” has a May 27, 2016 release.

Jeff Wadlow May Re-Imagine Characters From X-Men Movies For X-Force

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:9851:]]

While we can’t expect Jeff Wadlow to spill the beans regarding which X-Men characters may be appearing in his X-Force movie, the writer/potential director might have offered some clues.

We get a short updated on X-Force with Wadlow speaking at the Kick-Ass 2 premiere in NYC with Screen Rant on hand to ask a few questions.

Wadlow states they are keeping the character reveals a surprise for the X-Force movie, but goes on to offer his favorites as well as mentioning an interesting statement about re-imagining existing characters (a clue to what happens with Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days Of Future Past?).

Look, I’m a huge Deadpool fan, who doesn’t love Wolverine – but obviously Cable is an iconic character we haven’t seen onscreen yet. I love Psylocke, Domino is an amazing character – it’s a long list of characters that have appeared in ‘X-Force’ – Colossus is in the current lineup… There’s a lot of really exciting characters that you can use in ‘X-Force’ that have been in other movies, that haven’t shown up, or maybe there’s ways to re-imagine them, even though they might’ve shown up in other films.

Jeff Wadlow also gave his interpretation of what X-Force is, as in the comics it’s more of an aggressive group of X-Men characters that work outside the box that Professor Xavier created.

Wadlow hints at more of the same.

What ‘X-Force’ is – the way I talk about ‘X-Force’ is… ‘X-Men’ is about mutants, and not all the mutants get into the mansion. So I’m curious to tell a story about the mutants who don’t make it into the mansion.

The first X-Force line-up in the 90s, created by Rob Liefeld, consisted of Boom Boom, Cable, Cannonball, Domino, Feral, Shatterstar and Warpath. It has to be a given that Cable is a part of the film, who could also get his own spinoff movie, but what about the other four members? Existing movie characters could mean Deadpool and Wolverine or a couple of the lesser used X-Men such as the aforementioned Colossus or possibly [Arch] Angel.

X-Force Movie In Development At Fox Studios

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:9242:]]Fox Studios may be going forth with an X-Force movie.

It’s being said that the X-Force movie is just in the initial planning stages, which means they aren’t in production, but more or less just in talks.

An X-Men fan site, XMenFilms.com, discovered that the website domain, X-ForceMovie.com, has been registered by Fox Studios.

X-Force creator Rob Liefield confirmed the news on his Twitter.

“Yup. Was informed in March,” Liefeld tweeted.

Liefeld went on to state that the X-Force movie is in planning stages, but went on to note the same has been said for the Magneto film that has been mentioned for the past few years.

“And by informed, I mean told that an X-Force film was in the planning stages. Much different than shooting a film,” Liefeld continued. “When they cast an X-Force film then its reason to celebrate. They have a Magneto film in ‘development’ as well. Proceed with caution.”

Liefeld then stated it’s still good news.

“Cross your fingers and hope for good things for X-Force. Being ON the radar is much better than not!”

Currently, Fox Studios has two X-Men movies coming out with The Wolverine and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Regarding the latter, director Bryan Singer has already included a plethora of mutant characters; why not one more with Cable.

Advanced Review: Marvel Now!: Point One #1

The future of Marvel comics is bestowed upon us in Marvel Now! Point One. This is not the full scope, but rather, glimpses of some of the biggest and brightest new creations for 2013! A bevy of Marvel top talent has put their best foot forward to lay the foundation for the future, but, is it really worth the six dollar price tag?

Point One is an amalgam of intriguing tales and notable flops. Ranging from new characters like Miss America, revamping fan favorites such as Nova and even returning characters that have not been seen in a very long time — Forge! This book will leave fans in a “love/hate” scenario. Regardless of whom your favorite characters are, it is the quality of the tales that separate the good from the bad — not the character.

I do not pretend to know Marvel Cosmic — I am the “street” guy in the CBN offices. The last time I read a Nova tale, he was running with the New Warriors! But I enjoyed this slight glimpse into the “new” Nova. It was intriguing, referencing Rich Rider and his exploits a few times, and yet somehow winning me over with the “kid.” I cannot tell you if new or old fans will enjoy it, I can only tell you that I did!

But, the best story is that of Peter Quill. A jarring piece that grabbed me instantly! Not knowing a thing about Starlord, Bendis‘ tale made me want to! Fast paced, it’s placement in the book was perfectly balanced to excite the reader into the rest of the book. Unfortunately, the rest of the tales paled in comparison.

For me, the worst tale was the story of Forge and Cable. It was as misshapen as Forge’s leg, giving nothing for the reader to grab onto and feel invested in. I know these are just glimpses, teasers about the future, but, nothing here created excitement for said future. It was a ramble in order to show the mental duress of Forge, but it didn’t resonate well at all.

Nick Spencer’s wrap around tale of Nick Fury and a man proclaiming to be from the future, gave the perfect amount of direction to the overall book. A balance between the zany and profound, Spencer keeps it all in a well wound story that ends open-ended. The perfect stepping stone for the future of Marvel, one that is beginning to look brighter everyday.

But six dollars? Keep out all the advertisements and I would be happy to pay three!

“Cable and X-Force” Marvel Now! Announced From Dennis Hopeless and Salvador Larroca

With Rick Remender stepping away from the popular Uncanny X-Force as well as Secret Avengers to work on Uncanny Avengers, Marvel is launching a new Cable and X-Force Marvel Now! title from Dennis Hopeless and Salvador Larroca.

We see the likes of Cable, Domino, Colossus, Doctor Nemesis, and Forge making up the team.

Hopeless participated in a QnA over at Marvel.com. Here’s a couple excerpts:

Marvel.com: Was this a roster you pitched and, if so, what type of team were you hoping to create?

Dennis Hopeless: I see CABLE AND X-FORCE as a crime book. In my favorite crime stories, the characters are always at each other’s throats. This X-Force needed to be like that, a team of specialists who work well together but don’t always like each other. We tried to pick big personalities who were likely to clash in high stress situations. There are characters I wanted and didn’t get but I’m pretty thrilled with the final roster. It’s a powder keg.

Marvel.com: Where did the idea for this series come from?

Dennis Hopeless: I started with Cable. It was important to make Cable the cornerstone of the book. I wanted to do that without regressing the character back to an early version or forcing him into some out-of-character role just because it would be fun to write that kind of book. So I took a look at who Cable is right here and now. He’s an aging fighter who has been through 100 kinds of hell and still feels every scar. He’s a father who, for good or ill, has been forced to let his daughter go. He’s a presumed-dead outlaw currently best known for trying to kill Earth’s Mightiest Heroes [in the AVENGERS: X-SANCTION limited series by Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness]. He’s exhausted.

Looking at Cable that way made it all kind of fall into place. This is a guy ready to pack it in. But maybe he can’t. Maybe he has to pull off the Cable version of one last score. He has to save the world against all odds one final time and then he can retire into the sunset. Of course, that “one last score” job never goes as planned.

Dale Keown Draws An Awesome Maestro in “A Plus X” Featuring Hulk and Wolverine

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:3086:]]

CBR gets the first look at Dale Keown’s art from A+X #1 that features Wolverine and the Hulk, written by Jeph Loeb. The series features an X-Man and an Avenger team teaming up. The first issue also sees Captain American and Cable by Dan Slott and Ron Garney.

In Dale Keown’s pics below we see the Maestro taking on the Hulk! Old Man Logan is present as well to take on the little whippersnappers!

This brings back the glory years of Peter David and Dale Keown’s Incredible Hulk run from the 90s, probably my all-time favorite Hulk arc. There, we saw the debut of the Maestro with Future Imperfect written by PAD with art by George Perez. The Hulk was recruited to battle his future self who had become an evil despot — and also the last super powered being on Earth! Remember the double page spread with all the heroes’ weapons and artifacts – Rick Jones’ trophy room – how cool was that?

I remember feel uber disappointed when Keown left the book as the very next issue featured Banner Hulk taking on the Juggernaut — something I wanted to see from Dale Keown. However, what we ended with wasn’t at all bad with Gary Frank!

Here’s Keown’s art from A+X #1, head on over to CBR for more.

Guardians of the Galaxy Reborn: Nova and Cable are Connected; It’s “Child’s Play”

A couple nights ago when I, according to a certain someone and someone else (who shall go unnamed), stetcheeeeed to make a connection between the Guardians of the Galaxy, Nova and Cable, I was laughed right out of the CBN offices!

Turns out I wasn’t far off, as Cable and Nova do have some history (hey, what team was Star-Lord on?)!
