Josh Brolin Keeps Calling Marvel Studios About ‘Deadpool’ Future, Not Getting Answers

Josh Brolin Keeps Calling Marvel Studios About ‘Deadpool’ Future, Not Getting Answers
Josh Brolin has become one of the staples of the Marvel Cinematic Universe thanks to his motion capture performance as Thanos in “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame,” but that’s not his only superhero gig at the moment. The actor debuted as the time-traveling mercenary Cable in 2018’s “Deadpool 2,” which set up the character to continue fighting alongside Ryan ReynoldsDeadpool and Zazie Beetz’s Domino in a third film.

But the Disney-Fox merger has put a temporary hold on “Deadpool” and not even Brolin knows when the franchise might continue.

During a recent appearance at Ace Comic Con in Seattle (via ScreenRant), Brolin said he has called Marvel Studios multiple times to ask about the future of the “Deadpool” movies. Unfortunately, Brolin hasn’t been getting any concrete answers.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen,” Brolin said. “I’m actually, I’ve been calling them,

Counterpunch to ‘Avengers: Endgame’ – Should ‘Avatar’ be re-released? [Vote In Poll]

Counterpunch to ‘Avengers: Endgame’ – Should ‘Avatar’ be re-released? [Vote In Poll]
After a huge start “Avengers: Endgame” has fallen just short of the “Avatar” global box office record, but “Avengers” could get a second wind when it’s re-released with special features on Friday, June 28. Will that be enough to bridge the gap and take down “Avatar”? And if so, should “Avatar” get its own big-screen re-release to try to take its record back? Vote in our poll at the bottom off this post to let us know what you think.

As I’m writing this on Sunday, June 23, “Endgame” has made $2.749 billion worldwide. That’s just $39 million shy of “Avatar’s” record of $2.788 billion. By the time you read this that deficit might be even smaller. So re-opening with another marketing push and post-credits scenes in advance of “Spider-Man: Far from Home’s” release on July 2 could nudge the Marvel blockbuster just over the line.

“I’ve loved Jemaine’s work for years and I’m really pumped that he’s joining our cast as Ian Garvin, one of my favorite characters,” Cameron said in a statement.

Avatar 2,” the first of four follow-ups, will hit theaters on Dec. 17, 2021, a year after what Fox had planned before it was bought by Disney in March. Disney announced last week that the remaining installments will be released on the same weekend every two years, alternating with “Star Wars” movies with “Avatar 3” arriving in 2023; “Avatar 4” in 2025; and finally “Avatar 5” in 2027.

Avatar Sequels Delayed, Disney Alternates Releases with Star Wars Through 2027

Avatar Sequels Delayed, Disney Alternates Releases with Star Wars Through 2027
James Cameron's long-awaited Avatar 2 and its subsequent sequels have been delayed yet again by Disney. The first Avatar was produced for 20th Century Fox and, following its release in December 2009, went on to become the highest-grossing movie ever, by a considerably wide margin. As such, it was always expected that a sequel was going to happen. Cameron decided to make four Avatar sequels, which Disney inherited as part of their recent merger with Fox. Now, the studio has given new dates to the sequels, which are coming out quite a bit later than previously expected.

Disney recently released a fully updated release calendar that has some release dates as far back as 2027. This includes everything they decided to keep following the Fox deal closing. The calendar reveals that Avatar 2 will now arrive in theaters on December 17, 2021, as opposed to its previous date, which would have seen it arrive next year.

Disney Announces 63 Movie Release Dates Through 2027

Disney just announced a batch of new release dates for movies up through 2027. That's not to say they have their full release calendar planned up through then, but the next few years are pretty well set in stone and it's clear, with the purchase of Fox officially done, that few other studios stand a chance against the Mouse House's onslaught of blockbusters, franchise flicks and otherwise appealing crowd-pleasers. This includes release dates for 3 new Star Wars movies, all four of James Cameron's Avatar sequels, The New Mutants and much more.

Following the dramatic success of Avengers: Endgame thus far, The Walt Disney Studios' 2019 summer slate includes Guy Ritchie's Aladdin on May 24, Dark Phoenix, the last of the proper Fox X-Men movies, on June 7, Pixar's Toy Story 4 on June 21, Stuber, a buddy cop comedy from Fox, on July 12 and Jon Favreau's The Lion King on July 19.

Disney’s Big Fox Release Changes: ‘Ad Astra’ and ‘Avatar’ Sequels Pushed, ‘Deadpool’ Not on Calendar

Ever since the Disney-Fox merger earlier this year, the industry has been waiting to see how Walt Disney Motion Pictures would balance its original feature films with all of the new movies it acquired from 20th Century Fox. The answer has finally arrived in the form of a massive calendar update from Disney. The studio has now dated, rescheduled, or removed over a dozen major Fox releases.

The biggest shuffle is for James Cameron’s long-awaited “Avatar” sequels. Disney has announced the first sequel is being pushed back an entire year, from December 20, 2020 to December 17, 2021. The additional sequels will be released as followed: “Avatar 3” in December 2023, “Avatar 4” in December 2025, and “Avatar 5” in December 2027.

Also of interest is James Gray’s science-fiction epic “Ad Astra,” starring Brad Pitt. The movie was originally slated for May 24 but is now going to be released September 20. The move most

Three ‘Star Wars’ Films Added to Disney Release Slate Through 2026

Disney has announced that three previously untitled live-action movies slated for 2022, 2024 and 2026 will be new, untitled “Star Wars” films.

Following the release of “Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker” in December of this year, Disney will release three more “Star Wars” films on Dec. 20, 2022, Dec. 18, 2024 and Dec. 18, 2026, respectively.

“The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson and “Game of Thrones” creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were reported to have been working on their own trilogies of “Star Wars” films, but it’s unclear whose trilogy these three films are associated with.

The news came in a massive announcement in which Disney mapped out films up through 2027 now with the addition of the Fox slate. Among the changes, Disney delayed all four “Avatar” sequels by one-to-two years each, pushed back “The New Mutants” and completely removed “Gambit” from the development slate.

Disney Announces New ‘Star Wars’ Films, Moves ‘Avatar’ Sequels
Moviegoers will have to wait a little longer to return to Pandora.

James Cameron’s long-awaited and oft-delayed follow-up to “Avatar” has been pushed back another year. “Avatar 2” will hit theaters on Dec. 17, 2021 instead of Dec. 18, 2020 as originally planned. Its move means that “Avatar 3” will open on Dec. 22, 2023 as opposed to Dec. 17, 2021 while “Avatar 4” will bow on Dec. 19, 2025 instead of Dec. 20, 2024 and “Avatar 5” will launch Dec. 17, 2027.

The news comes as part of a larger shift in release dates unveiled by Walt Disney Studios. The company is changing the debuts of various films it inherited after buying the bulk of 21st Century Fox’s film and television assets in a $71.3 billion mega-merger.

As part of the great release date shake-up, Disney announced that a trio of untitled “Star Wars” entries that will come after “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” brings the Skywalker spinoff saga to a close this December.

Still not announced by Disney: What are the Marvel movies next year on May 1 and Nov. 6? Intelligent buzz is that it’s two of three: Black Widow, Shang Chi or The Eternals.

Joe Begos is one of the top up-and-coming horror directors I keep an eye on. From his debut film Almost Human to his telekinetic follow-up The Mind's Eye it's just a matter of time before Begos hits the mainstream in a big, bad way. And today we have word on his next film which just might be the project that pushes him into a theater near you. This new project comes to us from the twisted minds over at the newly rebooted Fangoria and is called V.F.W.

And, get this, the movie just snagged Avatar and Don't Breathe baddie Stephen Lang as the star. Described as The Wild Bunch meets Night of the Living Dead, it follows, "Fred and his military buddies as they must defend their local Vfw post - and an innocent teen - against a deranged drug dealer and his relentless army of punk mutants.
