Deadpool 3 In The Works? Ryan Reynolds Is Dropping Hints

Deadpool has managed to receive plenty of appreciation from the very beginning. So much so, that Deadpool 2 had garnered hype and attention from the word go. And fans of the franchise were getting way more updates than they could handle. Not surprising then, Deadpool 3 is living up to the whole euphoria the superhero franchise has managed to build with each installment. So what’s in store for the much-awaited third one? Any guesses?

The excitement begins

Are they taking the story forward? Are they giving out any clues? Well, for starters, suffice to say that the development on Deadpool 3 has already begun. Ryan Reynolds who plays the popular superhero has confirmed this and we definitely are all ears. While in China for the release of a much milder version of the sequel called Once Upon a Deadpool, a re-cut version of Deadpool 2 with added footage, he told us something that could well increase our expectations from the third installment.

He spoke during a press conference. As reported by Variety, this is what the superhero had to say, “[The producers and writers are] looking to go in a completely different direction.” And that’s not all; “Often, they reboot or change a character maybe like four movies too late,” he added.

Perhaps this is what Rhett Reese, Deadpool 2 producer and co-writer meant when he told CinemaBlend, “contracts back down” into something “personal and small.” This was after Cable, Domino and X-Force members were added to the Deadpool 2 universe.

Rewind

As the Merc with a foul mouth, Reynolds is the favorite in the X-Men universe. He bowled us over with his amazing portrayal of the anti-hero. While speaking to Screen Rant, both the writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese had revealed their plans for Deadpool 3 earlier. “We’re constantly in touch with Ryan (Reynolds), and we’re always throwing ideas back and forth via text and phone conversations. So, it’s always at the front of our minds. We’ll get there when the time is right, but as of right now, X-Force is next up,” Wernick had divulged.

YouTube

According to the chronology that we’ve established, X-Force will be next, before Deadpool 3. It’s a bit of the ‘Iron Man 1, Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Iron Man 3’ model, in that sense. X-Force isn’t being written by us. It’s being written and directed by Drew Goddard, or at least that’s the plan right now. We’re not involved with that one. We do anticipate there will be a Deadpool 3 at some point, but it’s just a little premature, because it will definitely take a backseat to X-Force for the time being.

Rhett Reese

The wait begins

Once Upon a Deadpool is a PG-13 edition of the movie and during its brief theatrical run, $6 million is all it made. Whether this was due to the fact that the original had made it to home media way before this version appeared on screen or not, is not known. We wonder if fans were really up for this insipid version of their superhero. After all, his irreverent edge is hugely responsible for the all the popularity he garners. While the makers may have several things planned for the franchise, fans do have their own expectations.

Facebook Hurting Us The Most. Shares Personal Data With Companies

Did you know that since 2010, our very favorite social media platform Facebook has given access of our personal data to more than 150 companies? Well, while the dust refuses to settle on the tech giant’s breach of privacy issue, there have been companies that were given the right to read and delete private messages of users. Surprised? Read on.

Is your data safe? Think again

The New York Times revealed how our data has been compromised due to Facebook’s data-sharing business partnerships. Those who have enjoyed access include top giants such as Yahoo, Microsoft, Amazon, Spotify, Netflix, and even Yandex- the Russian search engine. While the partnerships may have been cemented at different times, they were active in 2017 and were exempted from the privacy rules.

Different companies have enjoyed access to a varying extent. For example, Microsoft’s search engine Bing could access names of friends of virtually all Facebook users without their consent. While Netflix, Spotify and the Royal Bank of Canada went a step further and could even read, write and delete their private messages.

via GIPHY

Others such as Amazon, Microsoft and Sony could get contact information of users through their friends. Despite the said attempts of prohibiting such access, Yahoo and Yandex reportedly retained access. And that’s not all; Apple was given the power to see users’ contacts as well as their calendar entries. This was, irrespective of whether their data sharing was disabled or not.

YouTube – Facebook data share

So like it or not- these companies sought hundreds of millions of people on a monthly basis by way of applications. The biggest concern is that some of these partnerships are active even today.

The shadow of doubt looms

Facebook is already receiving a lot of flak for such breaches and its privacy policies are being heavily scrutinized. But Facebook refuses to accept such claims. Konstantinos Papamiltiadis, Facebook’s director of developer platforms and programs, revealed in a blog post saying:

None of these partnerships or features gave companies access to information without people’s permission, nor did they violate our 2012 settlement with the FTC.

Konstantinos Papamiltiadis

As Times reporter Nick Confessore points out through his tweet, Facebook believes that an explicit consent of users is not really necessary since its business partners which they prefer to call as ‘integration partners’ are in fact ‘functionally extensions of Facebook itself’.

The Times report definitely raises some very valid questions and two U.S. Senators have already expressed the need for a federal privacy law. What’s ironic is that despite such arguments, Facebook admits that it’s got work to do to regain people’s trust.

Ime Archibong, Facebook’s Vice President of product partnerships, said in a blog post,

In the past day, we’ve been accused of disclosing people’s private messages to partners without their knowledge. That’s not true — and we wanted to provide more facts about our messaging partnerships.

Ime Archibong, V.P. Product Partnerships at Facebook

Netflix, Spotify cry foul

Meanwhile, Netflix and Spotify cry foul. Netflix released a statement saying, “At no time did we access people’s private messages on Facebook, or ask for the ability to do so.” Spotify on the other hand said something similar. “We have no evidence that Spotify ever accessed users’ private Facebook messages,” it said.

via GIPHY

With their stock falling by more than 7 percent after the article got published, Facebook indeed has a lot of work to do. Or else, it will continue to lose its ‘friends’.

Netflix’s Shocking New Crime Series Will Leave You Speechless

Abducted In Plain Sight is a Netflix Original Documentary series. Revolving around the life of Actress Jan Broberg; the chilling narrative has sent the world into a horrified state.

Robert Berchtold and Jan Broberg
Robert Berchtold and Jan Broberg

The documentary shows the kidnapping of young Jan by a family friend called Robert ‘B’ Berchtold. What’s chilling about this is the fact that the man had kidnapped her twice in her lifetime. Well, if you thought that was shocking, here’s where it gets worse. Post the incident that left Jan traumatized, her parents remained passive about the entire thing and chose not to speak to anyone about it.

The Plot

Set in the 1970’s, Paedophile Robert ‘B’ Berchtold befriended the Broberg family. Little did the family know what his true intentions were, until years later. What is morbid about the entire episode is how the child’s parents turned a bind eye to what was obviously taking place right in front of their eyes.

via GIPHY

Jan Broberg was a little above 10 years of age when Berchtold met her. Ignorant of his sexual advances towards her, the child wandered into the predators trap much like a fawn with no protection.

Turns out, Robert was quite the manipulator and used dirty tricks to earn Jan’s parents’ trust. He was their handyman, as they call it now.

Upon Jan going missing for the second time, her parents finally took legal action. The predator however had a trick up his sleeve. Unfortunately, both Jan’s mother and father had entertained an affair with Berchtold. The man cleverly used this to blackmail them into withdrawing their complaint on him.

The plot gets worse

It just gets weirder folks. The documentary shows a now adult Jan Broberg, horrifically recollect the gory abuse she suffered. Upon turning a teenager, she said, Robert even built a wooden wall in the room for her, seperating her mother and her. Jan’s mother was seen crying at what took place.

The man slept in the same bed as young Jan for months. He did this right before abducting her. Apparently, he tricked the parents into thinking that he’s taking her horseback riding.

YouTube

Okay now, brace yourselves. Robert even convinced Jan, that she needs to have his baby when she turns sixteen. Failing which, it would result in the loss of her sister’s eyes and destruction of the world. He manipulated the child into thinking she was abnormal, and that, aliens were watching her.

The world reacts

The stupefying series has left quite a few around the globe, stunned, shocked, disgusted, angry and what not! One twitter user summed up her entire experience of watching this in a tweet.

Started watched Abducted in Plain Sight on Netflix and I literally had to press pause and take a break. I can’t believe these people who were so mind fucked by a dude who wanted to marry their 12 year old daughter. It’s sickening; the shit he does to get to her.

fresita on Twitter

Some even hailed it as an informative watch regarding the extent paedophiles go to for a child.

@Netflix For those on the fence about R. Kelly, you need to watch “Abducted in Plain Sight”. It is a Netflix documentary that depicts in great detail the lenghts a PEDOPHILE will go through to get a child and their M.O. #muterkelly #Netflix #PEDOPHILE #abductedinplainsight

Well, shocking is probably the only way to describe such a documentary. Stay safe everyone and be smart!

‘Ello Manhattan! Marvel Introduces New Drag Queen Superhero

Marvel is happy to unveil the first drag queen superhero. Fans are loving her. And we must say, she’s fabulous. Even her name has charmed everyone. Guys, meet Shade, the mutant drag queen. As the newest addition to the X-men comics’ lore, she is introduced in the fourth issue of the Iceman comic.

The epic introduction

This is how Shade had introduced herself after a fellow mutant’s performance, “Ello Manhattan. It’s your emcee, Shade. And I got none to throw at Dazzler’s set. Let’s give her another round of applause.”

Writer Sina Grace and artist Nathan Stockman are the brains behind this wonderfully awesome character. Most would know Iceman is the only monthly series that has a queer lead and the introduction of this superhero has added to its popularity.

Also Read: George RR Martin teases GOT fans

Says Grace to the LGBTQ website The Advocate:

I really wanted this series to push readers to new and better stories about the whole queer experience and how it applies to being both a mutant and a superhero. There’s a million different queer perspectives and we’re only scratching the surface.

The spin-off also happens to be the return to the series for Grace who was on board for the 2017 series that was cancelled just after 11 issues in spite of the fact that it had a GLAAD Media Award nomination.

What’s surprising was that the sales figures were dismal despite the critical acclaim it received. Shade will hopefully be seen more often; in Iceman No.5 and also in a special annual edition – X-Men: Winter’s End which is expected in February. More appearances are likely but the details have not yet been revealed.

Awesome superpowers

From the time she’s arrived on the scene, everyone’s going gaga over her powers. With the help of her handheld fan she can teleport effortlessly and enter a pocket dimension. The sassy superhero teleports with a ‘thwoooorp’.

Marvel superhero Shade

The drag queen clicked with fans instantly when she teleported into the first ever Mutant Pride Parade eventually becoming its master of ceremonies, and look forward to more frequent appearances in the near future.

On introducing new (s)heroes

As Dr. Ormond, who specializes in women in comics and subcultural identities, rightly pointed out to UNILAD how the introduction of Shade gives the company a chance to renew the superhero genre. She said, “Marvel and DC have been criticized for not showing enough of these types of characters across the various media of their expanded universe, so I can see why they decided to introduce her. It was a sound business decision as much as an appeal to their fanbase.”

​Fans of the comic book would know that Bobby Drake, Iceman’s alter-ego is an openly gay man who is seen struggling with his many overlapping identities. The introduction of the mutant has happened at a time when the company did not have a particularly good track record as far as LGBTQ+ representation is concerned and were criticized along with rivals DC by GLADD.

Something for the queer community

GLADD had raised the issue in their annual report, particularly pointing at Marvel and DC, stating:

It is becoming increasingly more difficult to ignore that LGBTQ people remain almost completely shut out of Hollywood’s big budget comic book films that have dominated the box office over the past several years.

The introduction of the drag queen superhero comes as a welcome relief, also the fact that Kevin Feige has promised to usher in openly gay characters soon. Fans would remember how two scenes were cut from Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther to avoid depiction of same-sex lovers.

Steve-O Snorts HIV Positive Blood Stained Coke, Lives To Tell Tale

Jackass sensation and television star, Steve-O has definitely had one helluva life. He has been in and out of prison quite a few times. From public obscenity to smuggling drugs, Steve-O has done it all. The 44 year old has recently even admitted to snorting HIV blood stained cocaine. Whoa!

Steve-O

Steve-O opens up

In a candid interview on In-Depth with Graham Bensinger, the actor revealed just how desperate and difficult his time as a drug addict was.
Steve spoke of how his mother was an alchoholic and how he would get to booze often during New Years parties at home

The star had his first drink at a very young age. He said that, though his mother was an alchoholic and his father never stopped him from drinking during festivities, he holds himself responsible for all his addictions.

In a chilling narrative, he describes how his mother hated him crying while on an airplane. In an effort to calm him down, and get him to sleep during the flight, she apparently gave him booze even as a baby.

You know I think the idea was they feel if you let the kids [have] everything, it’s not like, I mean, whatever they were gonna do it was gonna blow up in their faces. I don’t fault anybody for anything they did and trying to manage me as a child.

Steve-O

Steve’s Drug Problem

The actor then opened up about his journey as a drug addict. Turns out , his drug dealer lived very close to where he was living. He calls him ‘Everything’. Steve said that he’d often call the man and ask him what he’s got to sell, to which the dealer would just say that he’s got everything. Hence the name.

Sometimes when the dealer didn’t pick up his call, Steve said he’d just drop by the man’s place to take his stuff. One fateful day when he was at the brink of utter desperation, ‘Everything’ did not pick up his call. The actor as usual, just went over to his place and picked up his stash of drugs.

The Blood Coke

Steve mentioned that the drug dealer was not just a dealer but a drug user too. He recollects a gory picture of how the man would inject cocaine into his system by means of a syringe.

YouTube/In-Depth

Sometimes, he said, ‘Everything’ would pass out post a drug session. This was one of those days. The man had passed out, leaving his front door wide open. Steve unfortunately saw the man and even tried to wake him up.

Post unsuccessful attempts at waking him, the actor noticed a residue of the drug on a table nearby. Even though he saw the blood spots on it (blood squirts when using the injection method), he scraped it up and snorted it.

This is how just desperate and pathetic my addiction was.

Steve-O

A now sober and fully recovered Steve sat up grateful and happy that his past experience is over. As for HIV scare, Steve seemed sure he didn’t contract any of it.

Jonah Hill’s Only Liked Tweet Is A Massive Self-Burn

Hollywood ace Jonah Hill has certainly had the most spectacular claim to fame. Right from his Superbad days to Netflix’s mind wrecker, Maniac. Jonah has turned heads worldwide with his performance and personal transformation.

Jonah Hill
Jonah Hill

Recently, his movie, Mid 90’s is making tidal waves in tinsel-town. Written and directed by him, the movie appears to be a representation of his experience as a child. Funnily enough, the man has so far only one liked tweet on his microblogging site.

Self-Burning at its best

The tweet was from New York Times’ Kyle Buchanan. Well, it’s no surprise that Jonah loves to parody things, and the list includes himself!. Take a look at the tweet.

Kyle was seen praising actress Emma Stone in his tweet. He took a subtle dig at her co-stars on their inability to complement her on-screen presence. Here’s what he said:

Emma Stone is such a robust, emotionally generous actor and the men she’s so often cast opposite… aren’t

Kyle Buchanan

Jonah Hill starred alongside Emma Stone, during his early twenties, in Superbad. He played a smart and quirky, chubby teen. Desperate to land at least a kiss with the hottest girls of his class, Jonah and his two other accomplices in the movie land themselves in a huge load of hilariousness.

The connection

The movie struck a chord with many. In particular, Jonah’s robotic response to Emma got much attention now, thanks to Kyle’s tweet. There’s a lot to say that Kyle may have been hinting at Jonah.

Emma Stone has been in the lead in movies quite a lot, ranging from Easy A to The Amazing Spiderman. She does have an impressive list of leading male co-actors she was cast alongside. Speculations are that, Kyle may have hinted at the entire list of actors or just quirky ol’ Jonah Hill. We don’t know for sure yet.

via GIPHY

What is definitely funny and amusing though, is the fact that Hill has liked just one tweet, in his entire twitter-life. And oddly enough, it is this one. Maybe he likes a good joke on himself. Or maybe, he is just appreciative of his co-star Emma Stone. Well, whatever the reason, the world just can’t help but giggle at how Superbad Jonah actually is.

Jonah’s transformation

Speaking of physical transformation, Jonah has really turned the tables upside down. The actor is no longer the cute and chubby teen he used to be. Starring now in Maniac, Jonah plays a grown man who has a depersonalisation-derealization disorder. Honestly, if you did not know Jonah Hill, you’d think its a completely different person.

Wowing the world a second time, Hill revealed his new look for the movie
Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot.The movie is a biopic based on the life of John Callahan.

Many took to Jonah’s instagram post to comment on how he looks like the Christ. Sporting shoulder length blonde hair and a pair of ultra blue eyes, Hill seemed to strike a resemblance not just with Christ but also the likes of Kurt Cobain and Thor’s older brother.

Nike’s New Grass Shoes Will Leave You Swooning

International sports brand Nike is all set to release the world’s first, ‘Fake Grass Shoe’. Yes, the shoe is covered in a layer of fake golf grass with the Nike emblem barely showing through it.

The inspiration behind the shoes

Turns out that it was designed to camouflage in the grass surroundings during golf. We’re not sure though if anyone had a problem with their shoes being seen on a grassy landscape. Nike however has not left the opportunity pass by. The shoes do look very enticing thanks to the grassy feel. Almost as if you are walking in a bit of nature yourself.

Nike Air Max 1 G
Nike Air Max 1 G

The trainers have Nike swooshes to their sides and soles. A classic white swoosh on a soft grassy background. Nice touch eh?

The Launch

The Nike Golf Shoes – Air Max 1 G – NRG Grass 2019 will be launched at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The stylish trainers are being hailed as ‘The greatest show on grass’ by GolfPoser.

Also Read: Dwayne Johnson gets paid $13 million more than Emily Blunt

This brand new spikeless golf shoe blends signature AM1 details with golf specific footwear technology to produce an almost identical replication of one of the most iconic and most popular Nike sneakers of all time. The iconic Air Max 1 silhouette has been adopted in its entirety – meaning that the style now features a visible Max Air unit at the heel to complete the OG aesthetic perfectly.

via GIPHY

Nike Air Max 1 Golf “Grass” is all set for release in the coming weeks of January 2019. The new model retails at a decent $ 140. They will be available only at select Nike sportswear stores and on Nike.com

Stylecodes and more…

If you would like a pair of these beasts, the style code for the grass shoes is BQ4804-300. Also, the trainers are apparently spikeless making the shoes wearable on any terrain. Nevertheless GolfPoser also mentions that the soles of the shoes are designed using Nike’s traction technology which makes it more than efficient for use in Golf.

This cushioning heel unit combines well with the full length Phylon foam at the midsole for extreme comfort all day long, while the same Air Max 1 shoe last has been used to recreate the same feel through the whole upper design. The new spikeless outsole is soft yet durable enough to wear on any terrain, while the design has been inspired by Nike’s integrated traction technology for incredible grip, stability and performance through the swing.

Best take-away from Nike Air Max 1 G
