“MY THOUGHTS ON.. Marvel And Fox’s ‘Secret’ Relationship”

Greetings ladies and gentelnerds! 

When it was announced that Josh Brolin was cast as CABLE for “DEADPOOL 2”. The news, understandably, confused many fans. How can this actor be in two places at once?

Simple answer, its two completely different characters! But if we look a little deeper..

Like most companies/movie studios, or hell even sports teams. If you are signed in to a ‘Contract’. That means they own you. You cant go or do anything anywhere else that resembles what you do for them. IE: the no Compete Clause. 

Josh Brolin and many other Marvel Studios Stars are under that same No Compete Clause in thier contracts.. Meaning, No Marvel Studios employee can star or participate in other comic book properties outside of Marvel Studios. So, How is it that Marvel allowed Josh to head on over to Fox, whilst still under contract? And no its not because its another “Marvel” film.. It may have the Marvel Banner, but its not in the same house.

Here’s what it really is.. Marvel and Fox have a secret, backdoor relationship. 

In this relationship. “I’ll give you this, if you give me that.” 

Fox ownes everything and anything that falls under FANTASTIC FOUR, or X-MEN. 

Not including those that are Co-owned by Marvel and Fox. Like, RONIN THE ACCUSER, 


 just to name a known few. 

However! As we all know, EGO the living planet was a character that belonged to Fox. Yet he appeared in Marvel’s GUARDIANS Vol. 2.? Thats because..

Marvel and James Gunn approached Fox for Ego. Now, Fox being the opportunist said sure.. If you let us change Nega Sonic Teenage Warheads 

powers and design  for this little movie we are doing called, DEADPOOL. 

Marvel said.. “Deal!”

So, Who’s to say, this hasn’t happened more then once before.

James Gunn has stated his interest in using the Skrulls. If im not mistaken.. I think it was for Guardians 1. But the Skrulls belong to Fox. So he went with the Sakaarens! 

Here’s the interesting part. Marvel recently announced that The Skrulls, will be the villains of CAPTAIN MARVEL! 

So.. Was the Josh Brolin deal the key component of Marvel getting the Skrulls? 

Or was it, or is it, something else? 

We can only wait and see. But this secret relationship between Marvel and Fox looks to be a benefit for not only the companies. But for the fans as well. 

I for one cant wait to see what other trades and deals come out from these two.. 

Hopefully.. Its something good, and something soon.. *cough* SILVER SURFER!! *cough* *cough*

Until next time folks.. Peace out!


“ICYMI: FIRST LOOKS AT “DEADPOOL 2’s” DOMINO & CABLE!” (bare with me, im trying to catch up)

Okie dokie, ladies and gentelnerds.. This will be short and sweet..

Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds showed the world our first looks at Zazie Beets and Josh Brolin as Domino and Cable (respectively)


Not exactly comic accurate to say the least..

But Zazie Looks beautiful! I really dig this new, fresh look to the character. She looks bad ass and i cant wait to see her in action. Only 1 gripe.. Just 1.. Seriously couldnt go with the Black Spot on the eye? Seriously? I mean.. Eh! But whateves.. Im sure it will work on the screen. 


Holy.. Fuck! 

Thats pretty damn accurate! Nice job 20th century Fox.. Not bad at all! 

Great casting on both ends. Great costuming. Deadpool 2 is already shaping out to be More awesome then the first!

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!


Has Josh Brolin just confirmed he has been cast as CABLE?! I literally just spotted this on my Instagram Feed.. I might be a little late with this news.. But wow! 

Haven’t heard anything yet to the contrary. He could be trolling thr fans maybe.. But wow! How cool is this?! 

He’s not only THANOS The Mad Titan in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, 

But now, He joins the Marvel/Fox X-Universe as CABLE!

In my research before posting this.. 



I am loving this news. what do you folks think?!


As many of you are aware. Tim Miller, director of 2016’s biggest superhero movie hit DEADPOOL, will not be returning to helm the production of DEADPOOL 2! 

According to reports and other Nerd News Sources. Tim Miller and Ryan Reynolds could not come to an agreement over what direction to take the sequel. 

Miller: Wanting to take advantage of the success of the first film and plan for a higher budget film. With a larger budget, He wanted to take the film down a more slightly serious road and make the story more grand. 

Reynolds: Felt that a Larger scale, more serious film for Deadpool, wouldnt be a Deadpool movie. 

Unable to come to an agreement. The two men decided to part ways. 

Another divide between the two, that could have been the final nail in the coffin. Was the supposed casting of CABLE 

Kyle Chandler, of Friday Night Lights fame, Was Millers choice for the character. Reynolds, DP 1 Writers AND Fox Studios themselves were not on board with this decision. And so.. That was The End!

[Personal Note: Not an expert on Kyle Chandliers acting career.. But, i think his style of drama could be an interesting mix with Ryan’s Deadpool.. But thats just me.] 

Many names are now floating around in the rumorshpere and News Sites on who could possibly replace Miller in the Directors chair. Names such as, Quentin Tarintino, Michael Vaughn, and Edger Wright and Drew Goodard just to name a few. 

Most recently, rumor has it that Reynolds and 20th Century Fox are looking at a short list of Directors, with JOHN WICK Co-director David Leitch being at the top of the list. Nothing has been finalized at the present time.

Many would also suggest that Ryan Reynolds be the one to direct the sequel, since he is so entrenched with the character. To that i say, Not a bad idea.. But not a good one either. I’ll tell you why..
Reynolds has not directed anything as of yet. So he doesnt have much experiance in that department. Also, being a director is an all encompassing job. The Director is there from start to finish. Thier pressence has to be in everything, from editing to set design to wardrobe. A responsibility that would prove veey challenging for a first time director, like Reynolds, who is also the Full Time Producer of the film and the Star of the movie itself. It would be extremely fun to see Ryan Reynolds have a seat in the directors chair on a Deadpool film, but its too much too soon. Even for him. Starring, Producing and Directing is a tall order to fill.

Thats the current state of Deadpool 2. Once further information drops, I’ll try and bring you folks as up to date as i possible can.

So, Until next time folks.. Peace Out!


In the immortal words of Queen, “Another One Bites The Dust!”
Yet another director for 20th Century Fox’s “Gambit” film, Starring Channing Tatum, has dropped out. This one jumping ship to DC/WB to helm the live action “Justice League:Dark” movie.(sweetness)

So, this makes like… 4 directors to drop out of this movie? (Anyone ever try mixing E and J Apple Whiskey with Cranberry Juice?… Its so good..) anyway.. What? Oh uhm.. Right! 4 directors have said “Fuck This” to Fox and this potentiol Gambit movie… Honestly.. This stand alone Gambit movie was a bad.. Bad Idea from the beggining! 

Dont get me wrong.. LOVE the character! Like the actor too.. But.. Seriously? Gambit?! What story could you possibly have us care enough about, to make a 2 hour film with?!? “Well Deadpool worked out for us” says a Fox exec.. Deadpool is a very popular character that has had his own ongoing title for a long time now.. Gambit tried a solo comic run.. Twice! It didnt work.. (or was it thrice!?) 

I firmly believe Gambit would serve better in an assamble film.. Either the next X-film, or New Mutants, or maybe.. More preferably.. Deadpool 2! Like a Collosus type cameo, but larger and more interval to the plot.. (seriously.. Cranberry Juice and Apple Whiskey.. Great combo!) 

A Deadpool and Gambit team up.. WITH Cable.. Would be AWESOME!! get on it Fox.

How am i gonna close this?. Im Finished.. I got nothing else to say about it… Uhm… “I wanna rock right now, Im Rob Bass and i came to get down, im not internationally known. But im known to rock the microphone because i get stupid, i mean outrageous….


Hey, Hey! Welcome back to another “Movie Review Blog” (sans- Speculating Nerd) and today’s movie is a true treasure!



My God! Where do I begin?!?

STORY: When Merc for hire Wade Wilson meets the woman of his dreams, Vanessa, his so called perfect life is thrown for a loop and is diagnosed with full blown cancer. Short on options, he enters a seedy government operation intent on finding a cure. Only to discover he’s been deceived and is being conditioned to be a super powered slave for sale. In the process, he’s given the Mutant Ability to heal from any wound. But is horribly disfigured in the process. After escaping, he sets out on a path of revenge!

Literally ripped out of the comics. To an extent of course. (Hollywood) But the film is wonderfully crafted. The writing is spot on, from the humor, to the dialogue, all the way to the Love Story. DEADPOOL’s fourth wall breaking was used perfectly and wisely. It wasn’t overused, or obnoxious! It never plays itself out.

However, as great as the film is, from start to finish. I feel like the film is too short. But! On the other hand, the length fits the type of story that’s being told. But it still leaves you wanting a little more.

CHARACTERS: Collosus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead-



Were fantastic delights! Every moment they were on screen was so much fun. They were used respectfully and wisely. Β They didn’t feel out of place or used just for gags. Although, Colosus had some very funny moments with his interactions with DP.

THE NEGATIVES: Not a whole lot but! It really does end leaving you wanting more! The movie could have been given an extra 20-30 minutes extra of running time. But one could assume that would also have to do with the budget. So, I can’t fault them for that. Colosus… Too goody-goody! As a fan and a long time reader I have witnessed Colosus’s character evolve over the years and he has become a rather no holds barred badass when the situation arrives. The film played heavy to his earlier character traits of yesteryear. I found myself saying, “Come on man! cut loose!”. Lastly… Not enough connections to the whole X- Universe! Understandable, the budget didnt call for a shit load of Xmen showing up, but more tie-ins would have been nice. A mention of the Weapon-X program. They could have dropped more hints of what could come next. The movie as a whole, felt very, Stand Alonish. As if to say, “we’re making the best movie we can. The way we want to. We feel honored to be given this oprotunity. But if shit don’t work out, we are not gonna befuddle whatever it is that Fox has in store for the X-Universe. This is Deadpool! We’ll leave what we can open for the future. But we are making a Deadpool Movie!” (At least that’s what I’m getting out of this movie.)

OVERALL: What a way to kick off, not only 2016, but the Comic Book movie Genre’s most ambitious decade, ever! Deadpool has, Heart, Laughs, Action, and pure Fun at every turn. I give DEADPOOL a score of 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 9/10! I can’t wait for more DEADPOOL!

Hope you folks enjoyed this review. Speculating Nerd will be handeling the SPOILER FILLED version. Stay tuned. Thank you for reading,

So, until next time folks.. Peace Out!
