Ryan Reynolds tweeted out the full costume for his upcoming role as Deadpool for the 2016 movie and boy is it spot on! The synopsis for the film was also released: “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.”

First Look at Eisenberg’s Luthorjesse-eisenberg-lex-luthor
Warner Bros. has released the first image of Jesse Eisenberg in his upcoming portrayal of Lex Luthor in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Director Zack Snyder recently talked about Eisenberg’s character saying: “He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure. Other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course….Our Lex is disarming and he’s not fake. He says what he believes and he says what’s on his mind. If you can unravel the string and decipher what he means, it’s all there.”

  1. While I like most of the characters in the All New Avengers lineup, I’m not sure how I feel about so many young characters on an Avengers team. It could work if it’s a sub-team with some of the adults working to mentor the young characters, but still.

    • Yeah it is a little odd seeing the roster. Kamala already an Avenger? Wow that was quick! Mile Morales? Crazy! I’m happy to see the female Thor sticking around though. And who is in the suit of armor? Tony Stark? Someone else? Ah the possibilities!
