‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Midseason Return Trailer: Skye & Raina Become Inhuman
When we last left Coulson and his team before the midseason break, Skye was finally revealed to be the Marvel Comics character Daisy Johnson a.k.a. Quake. And yet, perhaps even more importantly, this major development introduced the Inhumans storyline to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
And a brand new trailer from IGN doesn’t waste any time asking the central question from the midseason premiere: “What have they become?”
Ryan Reynolds Talks ‘Deadpool’ and What Went Wrong with ‘Green Lantern’
Ryan Reynolds is reprising the [Deadpool] role and talked to Yahoo! Movies about why it won’t be as bad as Wolverine, or Green Lantern, or RIPD…
First off, Mr Reynolds, how did the Deadpool movie finally come to fruition?
“Leaked test footage. Exclusively the leaked test footage, 100 percent.”
Okay, so who leaked it? Was it you? The people demand to know!
“I would have, if I had known it would have caused that! Honestly, we all thought Tim Miller, the director, had leaked it. But I have since investigated that enough, in quiet moments when he was beyond the point of being penalized by anybody, and he said that he really didn’t do it. The initial [leak] came from Fox they think – someone recorded the footage on their iPhone and then released it. And then once that happened, somebody hacked into Blurred Studios and got the original footage in high-res and put it online.”
I guess you’re glad it was leaked?
“Now, we get to make the movie. We don’t get to make it with the budget of most superhero movies, but we get to make it the way we want to make it, so that’s even more exciting than having a catered lunch.”
Why should we be excited about Deadpool? You don’t exactly have the best track record when it comes to comic book adaptations.
“Well, script. When we shot Green Lantern, nobody auditioning for the role of Green Lantern was given the opportunity to read the script, because the script didn’t exist. I’m not complaining about it – it was an opportunity of a lifetime, and if I were to go back and retrace my steps, I would probably do everything the exact same way. But script, that’s what’s different on this one.
“We’ve had a script for three years. The script got leaked, and people even loved that. That says a lot – if you can create a script around a comic-book character that is directly within the canon of the character and be embraced. That’s a huge step in the right direction. I’ve since learned that a lot of superhero movies don’t really have a fully functioning draft of the screenplay ready until they’re already well into shooting.”
Deadpool is set to hit theatres February 12, 2016.

Watch Michael Keaton Act Out Birdman Scenes, As Rewritten By Little Kids

Fortunately, he hasn’t left these skills behind, and they suited him quite well last night while appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, specifically performing scenes from Birdman as written by children.
