Tim Miller talks Colossus, Green Lantern, and putting Cable in Deadpool 2

08.06.2015

Two trailers for the highly anticipated DEADPOOL were finally released several days ago and thankfully they were everything we'd hoped they would be; crude, action-packed, and hilarious. Tim Miller, director of DEADPOOL, is quite the fan of the trailers himself, as well he should be, and he's provided an enlightening breakdown of the trailer's over at Empire.

You may have noticed Colossus casually swatting Deadpool into a car during the trailer but according to Tim Miller, until they were actually shooting the scene, he was sure that Fox was going to step in and veto the appearance; but not only did Fox allow the appearance, they let Miller change his look as well:

As a fanboy I’ve always been like, 'That dude with the shiny skin is not fucking Colossus.' He should be this monstrous guy, and they actually let me make him seven-and-a-half feet tall. I did actually call Daniel Cudmore to ask him if he wanted to do this, even though he’d be entirely CG the whole time. He was very nice about it. He was like, 'I appreciate your offering, but nah.'

A shot was taken at Ryan Reynolds' appearance in GREEN LANTERN (please don't make the super suit green, or animated!) but Tim Miller reveals that there are several more GREEN LANTERN jokes in the film but that they may not make it to the final cut:

We shot a few more Green Lantern jokes, but I’m not sure how many will survive the cut. Ryan definitely had some Green Lantern issues to work out. We had about a minute’s worth of dialogue between him and Colossus where he talks about it, like, 'So a guy comes with a thousand-dollar suit and says, "We want you to play a superhero," but there’s no script yet and the release date is completely unmakeable…' He goes on this whole anti-Green Lantern run, but I’m not sure it’ll stay in, because probably not even half the people in the theatres will get those jokes.

Finally, Tim Miller commented that a certain character who fans have long wished to see on the big-screen could turn up in the sequel should DEADPOOL prove successful.

There aren’t really many definitive Deadpool villains, apart from Cable. If we don’t put Cable in Deadpool 2 I think we’ll be run out of town on a rail.

I know most of us are quite excited about DEADPOOL but I'm curious to see what the general public will think of a Marvel character who dispatches foes in a bloody fashion and routinely breaks the fourth wall while doing so. It's been such a long road getting here that it'd be an awful shame if DEADPOOL isn't a success. Fingers crossed, we already want more!

DEADPOOL will bless us with his "testicle with teeth" visage on February 12, 2016.

The movie has a definitive start:

It has to start with Deadpool watching Xmen Origins and yelling at the screen. Then he takes off his mask and says "oh, yeah lets do the whole backstory thing for the fuckers who don't know who I am" and we get the flashbacks scenes with him and his girlfriend and of the weapon x project. Then cut to the car segment in the trailer with him listening to Salt n Peppa and he looks at the screen and says "boy, I thought you'd be stuck in exposition land forever" and then the trailer scene starts.

Don't get me wrong...

I'm glad Ryan Reynolds is playing this role. I'm glad it LOOKS like we're finally getting the Deadpool movie we deserve. I've always been a Ryan Reynolds fan...well for so long, going back to his sitcom days of Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place where his sarcasm shined. BUT, I have a problem. He makes jokes about Fox's first Deadpool attempt. Then he makes jokes about Green Lantern. Well, wait a minute, douche. First off you've always claimed to love Deadpool and yet you HELPED Fox fuck it up

First off you've always claimed to love Deadpool and yet you HELPED Fox fuck it up the first time. You could have balked or backed out. Green Lantern was your time to shine. The time to step up and do some actual drama (that you've since done) instead of the Ryan Reynolds schtick, which BTW ISN'T Hal Jordan's schtick. So part of me is like, fuck you, you little weasel. You're part of the problem. You wanna make jokes now? But you were happy cashing checks. So ultimately, I hope this movie is good, but Reynolds can suck a dick.

Not to defend Ryan Reynolds but since he did play those roles, he's allowed to be judgemental of them if he felt the studio used the property wrong. Fact is, we all make fun of green lantern and origins version of deadpool, so why can't the actor that portrayed them and felt upset about how he was told to portray them.
He may have taken his paycheck, but who doesn't work jobs they kinda regret?
Halle Berry accepted her Razzie for Catwoman, does that mean she is not allowed to be disappointed

I agree they don't need to delve TOO much in to the GL or Origins jokes, but I would be disappointed if they didn't do them at all.
The studio is doing this Deadpool the way Ryan was hoping with Origins, so it's fair that this movie has him far more excited.

I seem to vaguely recall that the "second half" deadpool in Origins was added late on, and it's a different actor doing the stunts (IMDB tells me its Scott Adkins) The scenes Ryan actually has in the movie are all (relatively) pretty solid

I would rather see the film make more jokes about Origins Wolverine and how badly they screwed up Deadpool in that film considering it has more to do with the character than a different comic book film character completely that isn't even in the same universe.

And if the regular X-Men films won't introduce Cable, then why not Deadpool 2.

Okay, either him or Stephen Lang.

I like both actors but they are both in their 60's at least with Nash he has ten years their junior and has the gray hair and build for it.

I agree with moonrider. While I was watching AVATAR all I kept thinking was Stephen Lang could totally play CABLE if they ever put the character on the big screen. I love me some Kevin Nash but I don't think of him as CABLE, sorry.
Ron Pearlman is a close second though.

Cable is fairly old by the time he entered the X-Men's timestream. Also, we may need to cast younger Cable AKA X-Man (Nathan Grey) too. We can't have his younger slender self look nothing like Kevin Nash (who is huuuge!) when Nash is not really that old himself, but we can imagine a grey haired twenty something as Stephen Lang's younger self.

Like I said I like both Perlman and Lang and think they could do it. Yet Reynolds is playing Deadpool and they both stand at 6'2 repectively in real life and the comics. Nathan Summers AKA Cable is 6'8 350 Ilbs. In order to do him justice Kevin Nash is 6'9 328 Ilbs. versus Lang who is a 5'10 182 Ilbs and would look dwarfed next to Reynolds. Maybe you can pull of Perlman at 6'1 but why? When you have a built in Cable with Nash. Just practical thoughts, but your choices definitely have the acting

Either way if any of the three got the part I would be happy.

Stephen Lang was actually attached to the Deadpool movie as Cable at one time but they decided to cut the character from the film afraid of over-crowding the characters. So here's to hoping we get Cable in Deadpool 2 (depending on how well it does in theaters of course).

@brucealmighty two words: movie magic. Lang fought a blue giant native in Avatar and he still look like a formidable foe. A little perspective camera trick could easily make him look larger.. um, than life.

@moonrider Bro, I am aware of movie magic. I get that you can take the tallest character in the cast for Lord of the Rings and make him a dwarf. Or make Lang look formidable against a 8 foot Avatar. But why bother? Save the money or the hassle of finding the perfect angle everytime you film and hire Nash at no extra cost because he is literally the right size and look and attitude for Cable and use that money for some epic battles with Deadpool. Or don't! It is not like my choice will come to

Or don't! It is not like my choice will come to fruition just because I want it to, I simply think Nash is perfect for the role, and was trying to stress my case, but your welcome to think otherwise. And for a third time Lang and Perlman would both do a bang up job, just would not be my first choice, even looking at the icon again for the article looks like an artist rendition of Nash as Cable.
