New info on X-Men: First Class, Deadpool, and more


Lauren Shuler Donner, producer on all of the Mutant movies so far and wife of Richard Donner, recently gave an interview with Crave Online where she drops a lot of information on X-Men: First Class, the Magneto movie, and Deadpool. In addition to giving an update on the filming of First Class, which begins next week, she mentions the Wolverine sequel:

Well, we have another Wolverine that we’re going to do, The Wolverine Saga, with Mariko, The Japanese Story, that miniseries. But that we pretty much follow the comic pretty closely, as closely, really closely.

She also pretty much debunks the rumors that Ryan Reynolds won’t be Deadpool due to his Green Lantern commitment:

You know, Ryan is so committed to being Deadpool. He is Wade Wilson. Well, no, he’s Deadpool. He is so committed to it that he worked with the writers on the script. Even though he’s doing Green Lantern, he’s stayed involved in that project. I’m hoping we’ll get it off the ground next year.


Oh, yeah, sure. It’s very different. It’s like Harrison Ford doing Star Wars and Indiana Jones. DC and Marvel are different universes with different movies. But sure, the more popular and well known he is the better.
