Deadpool & Wolverine MCU Team-Up Is Inevitable Says Rob Liefeld

Rob Liefeld says that a Deadpool and Wolverine team-up is "inevitable" in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There has been a lot of talk about the Merc with a Mouth heading over to the MCU over the last several months now that Disney is acquiring Fox's Marvel properties. Questions of how the studio will handle Wade Wilson's trademark vulgar language and how/if he will be incorporated have been asked by fans and even the men and women behind Deadpool.While there have been a lot of questions surrounding the Disney and Fox deal, there have also been a lot of wishes too. Fans have been hoping to see Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool team up with Hugh Jackman's Wolverine, but nobody has wanted it more than Reynolds, who brings it up all of the time. However, Jackman has stated many times that he is done with the character, even though moving to the MCU excites him. That being said, Rob Liefeld believes that the MCU will finally bring the characters together, but it might not be exactly what the fans want. He explains."I feel like it's inevitable. I wish that it was Hugh and Ryan. There's no guarantee that's going to happen. But look, I do believe Marvel films has, whatever you call them. Marvel Cinematic Universe, they are really good at giving people what they want, and sometimes giving them what they don't really understand they need the most, like Thor and Rocket Raccoon, okay."As far as when this could happen, that's anybody's guess and Rob Liefeld doesn't pretend to know either. However, he truly believes that Deadpool and Wolverine will end up on the big screen in the near future. But, will fans want to see it if it's not Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman? That's the real question. Liefeld continued and had this to say.Related: Hugh Jackman Teases Huge Announcement, Is He Returning as Wolverine?"You kind of understand that there's an inevitability about it. It's just, what date? Tell me the date, you know. So, I do believe it'll happen."Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige and their team have brought the MCU to amazing levels of success and they seem to be able to make the impossible happen. It wouldn't be too surprising if Feige was able to get Hugh Jackman back on board for a team-up with Deadpool. There have been rumors that the X-Force movie and Deadpool 3 could be dead, which Rob Liefeld has addressed in the past, but maybe Feige has some tricks up his sleeve.At this time, it's impossible to tell what will happen to the Deadpool franchise under the Disney umbrella. But, one has to like how positive Rob Liefeld is about the whole Merc with a Mouth and Wolverine team-up business. Hopefully that positivity becomes infectious and starts to spread to the studio and down to Hugh Jackman to make this dream a reality. Until then, we'll just have to sit with Liefeld and think positively about the situation. The interview with Rob Liefeld was originally conducted by Comic Book. Topics: Wolverine, Deadpool

Monopoly Movie Will Reunite Kevin Hart with Ride Along Director

The Monopoly movie has new life, thanks to Kevin Hart. Lionsgate and Hasbro are moving forward with the long-gestating big screen adaptation of the very popular board game and they've tapped Hart to star in the lead role. Should the project actually move forward in its current form, Hart will reunite with director Tim Story, who he worked with on both Ride Along movies. They've proven to be a financially viable duo in the past, making this a tantalizing package deal for the studio.According to a new report, Both Kevin Hart and Tim Story are in final negotiations with Lionsgate and Hasbro, who are producing Monopoly through their Allspark Pictures production company. Should the deal close, it will give the project a fresh start and perhaps its best shot at actually going in front of cameras. Development on the movie has been going on for the better part of a decade, with several different filmmakers and stars attached at various points in time. Even Alien and Gladiator director Ridley Scott was attached to produce at one point, as strange as that may seem.At the present time, plot details for the movie are being kept under wraps. A previous version of the story would have seen a young man from the game's lower-level location Baltic Avenue on a journey to make a massive fortune. No writer has been set for Monopoly in its latest version, nor has the studio locked down any actual production dates. As it is, the project appears to be in its early stages. However, should Kevin Hart and Tim Story close their deals, things could get moving fairly quickly.Related: Monopoly Is Still Happening!Kevin Hart has proved himself to be a very bankable star, with his most recent movie The Upside making a surprise debut atop the box office last weekend. But the comedian and actor has been embroiled in controversy as of late, given what happened with his Oscars hosting gig, which he surrendered after a series of anti-LGBTQ tweets and statements resurfaced online. Hart has been criticized for how he handled the situation, but he's made it clear it's in the past and he's moving on. Part of that will involve him heading off to shoot Jumanji 3 next month and, if all goes well, locking down a deal to star in Monopoly will also help him put the situation in his rearview mirror.As for Tim Story, he's delivered hit after hit for much of his career, having helmed the first two Fantastic Four movies for Fox, in addition to several of Kevin Hart's theatrically released comedy specials and Barbershop. Story most recently directed the new Shaft sequel, which arrives this summer. Monopoly does not yet have a release date. We'll be sure to keep you posted as any further details about the project make their way online. This news was first reported by Deadline. Topics: Monopoly

Mission: Impossible 7 Director Chose Tom Cruise Over Making a DC Movie

Mission: Impossible 7 director Christopher McQuarrie reportedly passed on directing a DC project. Following the release of Mission: Impossible - Fallout last summer, which was one of the biggest blockbusters of 2018, not to mention the critical acclaim, McQuarrie became a hot commodity, with several major studios trying to court him with major projects. Warner Bros. was apparently at the top of the list and they were trying to use their stable of DC Comics characters to lure him in.We recently learned that Paramount ultimately was the studio that managed to court Christopher McQuarrie, by getting him to sign on to write and direct the next two Mission: Impossible movies, which will shoot back-to-back and be released in 2021 and 2022 respectively. In one of the reports regarding that news, it was revealed that Warner Bros. "tried to seduce him with DC projects." Unfortunately for them, that didn't work and the filmmaker decided to reunite with his pal Tom Cruise instead. Given their recent track record working with one another, it's a decision that makes a great deal of sense.As for what DC Comics projects Warner Bros. may have tried to entice Christopher McQuarrie with? That's anyone's guess at this point. However, McQuarrie has indicated his desire to tackle Superman in the past. Though, that presents its own set of issues, as Henry Cavill doesn't look to be returning as the Man of Steel anytime soon, if at all. The studio has made it reasonably clear that another Superman solo movie isn't a priority at this time. Cavill coincidentally worked with McQuarrie on Mission: Impossible - Fallout, which led to his now infamous mustache that had to be removed with very expensive CGI for the Justice League reshoots.That situation clearly didn't cause any bad blood between Warner Bros. and Christopher McQuarrie. In any event, he's not going to be making a DC movie. At least not anytime soon. Though, it's easy to see why the studio would want him to. Mission: Impossible - Fallout was one of the best reviewed movies of 2018 and grossed a series best $791 million at the box office. That was following in the footsteps of 2015's Rogue Nation, which was also very well regarded and brought in $682 million globally. McQuarrie has proved that he knows how to make a crowd pleaser.But it's the pairing of Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise that seems to work so well. The two have worked together on ten movies together so far, with the next two Mission: Impossible movies making it a dozen. As for Warner Bros., the DC brand should be fine even without McQuarrie, as Aquaman recently passed the $1 billion mark at the global box office, with Shazam set to hit theaters in April. After that is the Joaquin Phoenix Joker movie, which arrives in October, followed by Birds of Prey and Wonder Woman 1984 in 2020. This news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
