Deadpool

Deadpool/Guardians of the Galaxy 2: Paul Wernick, who cowrote the script for Deadpool with Rhett Reese, says their desire to give X-Men character Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) different powers than in the Marvel comics required approval by Marvel. In exchange, the Fox studio swapped Ego the Living Planet, a character for which they owned screen rights, with Marvel so that the character could be played by Kurt Russell in Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Director James Gunn confirmed the exchange. [The Playlist]

 

Don't Breathe

Don't Breathe: Director Fede Alvarez (above left) says that he is already planning a sequel to horror thriller Don't Breathe. The movie followed three young criminals who break into the home of a blind man (Stephen Lang, above right), only to discover that the man is far more prepared to defend himself than they had anticipated.
