Ryan Reynolds continues to be the go-to source for Deadpool reveals. Today, the actor tweeted a new on-set photo debuting the first photo of the character Negasonic Teenage Warhead, played by Brianna Hildebrand.
Said Reynolds’ Tweet, “Negasonic Teenage Wat-The-S**t?!”
The oddly-named Negasonic Teenage Warhead was created by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely in 2001 during their run on New X-Men. In the comics, she was a student of Emma Frost with precognitive abilities.
A sequel to the 2014 Left Behind film starring Nic Cage, not to be confused with the trilogy of ‘End Times’ films of the same name starring Kirk Cameron, is currently seeking crowdfunding online.
Left Behind producer Paul Lalonde has launched an Indiegogo campaign in an effort to raise $500,000 to finance a followup to the Revelations-inspired film that was panned by critics when it hit select theaters last year.
There are still 27 days left in the campaign, and as of this writing, just over $55,000 has been raised. Those who contribute $25 will get a digital version of the film when it comes to VOD, while a $50 donation will get you a Blu-ray/DVD hard copy.
Sir Ian McKellen is set to voice the talking clock Cogsworth in Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of their animated classic Beauty and the Beast.
According to Variety, the British actor (famous for his roles as Magneto in a string of X-Men films and Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies) will be lending his instantly recognizable vocal chords for the upcoming Disney film, which will begin production later this year.
Joining Mr. McKellen is Harry Potter star Emma Watson, who will be playing the film’s leading lady Belle. Bill Condon — who previously helmed McKellen in Gods and Monsters and Mr. Holmes — will direct.
