Colossus: Language please, Deadpool.
Deadpool: Oh, suck a cock.
That's right ladies and gentlemen, both myself and Epic Film Guy Justin had a chance to check out the latest game-changing superhero film starring Ryan Reynolds: Deadpool! This review was so big, we simply couldn't do it on our own and have a special guest on the show to talk about the movie. We're proud to welcome long-time listener (and Nick's college friend) Dan Brenic on the show! Dan has long been campaigning for the role of Spider-Man, but has thusfar been overlooked by Marvel and Sony. Maybe we can bump him over the edge!
Along with that, we're also going to talk about Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn's comments that Hollywood will take the success of Deadpool the wrong way. Is he right? Will studios just start jamming out R-rated superhero projects to try to cash in on the "next big thing?" In that vein, word is coming that both Wolverine 3 and the X-Force film will both be rated R, and Spawn is a name that has suddenly popped up in the conversation again with creator Todd McFarlane reporting the script is done, but he has yet to shop the script to studios.
Not to be forgotten, in the Epic Previews segment tonight, we'll be looking at that new Batman v Superman trailer that landed last week, as well as taking a look at the new trailer for season two of Marvel's Daredevil, which features Jon Bernthal as The Punisher. We'll also be discussing the trailer for Pee Wee's Big Holiday, the first feature-length outing for Paul Reubens' iconic character in decades.
