Disney+ to add R-rated Deadpool, Deadpool 2, and Logan on July 22

Disney+ announced Deadpool, Deadpool 2, and Logan will all stream on Disney+ in the U.S. starting July 22. This marks another shift for the streaming service as it slowly allows more R-rated and TV-MA content. Because of the violence and graphic nature, Disney reminds subscribers to revisit their parental control settings to curate their viewing experience.

The move comes at the same time as San Diego Comic-Con, where Marvel Studios will return for the first time in three years. Marvel President Kevin Feige will host a mega-panel in Hall H at 5 p.m. PT on Saturday, July 23. In years past, Marvel has used this panel to announce and showcase important projects like The Avengers. Many insiders speculate that Feige will give updates and share footage on upcoming MCU projects such as She-Hulk: Attorney at LawBlack Panther: Wakanda Forever, and Blade.

After Disney officially acquired 20st Century Fox in 2019, many fans were left to speculate about what would happen to properties such as Deadpool and the X-Menfranchise. Feige confirmed that Deadpool would be joining the MCU and the third film would be R-rated. The X-Men are also expected to join the MCU, with many pointing to the fact that the finale of Ms.Marvel teased the arrival of the mutant superteam.

Both Deadpool movies and Logan were huge hits, both critically and financially. Deadpool and Deadpool 2 combined for a worldwide box office gross of over $1.5 billion. Both films starring Ryan Reynolds were the highest-grossing R-rated films of all time before being passed by 2019’s Joker.

Logan, which marked Hugh Jackman’s final performance as Wolverine, grossed over $600 million worldwide. The film was universally praised by critics, and it became the first live-action superhero film to receive an Oscar nomination for screenwriting.

10 biggest celebrities ever to visit SDCC
A banner for "San Diego Comic-Con."

During its heyday, Comic-Con could host as many celebrities as the Oscars, and sometimes even more. What's more, sometimes those celebrities would go to absurd lengths to entertain the fans who had assembled for whatever upcoming project they were there to tease.

While trailers are well and good, and every Comic-Con has a few great moments, celebrities are ultimately the thing many people want to see the most. These are the 10 biggest celebrities to ever attend the convention.

What is Hall H? An insider’s guide to SDCC’s hottest place to be
The cast of The Avengers and Joss Whedon at Comic-Con 2015.

If you've come out to San Diego Comic-Con to see the movie and TV stars, then I'm afraid you're going to be disappointed this year. The writers' and actors' strikes mean that the biggest Hollywood guests are skipping Comic-Con for the first time in over two decades. And that means the infamous Hall H will largely be vacant this year. That said, there are a few Hall H panels, and it's always useful to know what you're in for.

The first thing you need to know is that Hall H is simply another hall on the San Diego Convention Center floor, at least most of the time. During other conventions, it's just another place for foot traffic. But in 2003, Comic-Con officials realized that there just wasn't enough space to host the biggest events of the con. Thus, in 2004, Hall H became the de facto largest panel room at Comic-Con. It can hold 6,500 people, and that still wasn't enough to meet the demand of fans who wanted to see the biggest previews and the top Hollywood stars.

Are you heading to San Diego Comic-Con with money to burn? If so, there's a good chance that you are one of the many fans who will be on the lookout for this year's Comic-Con exclusives. While Comic-Con's movie and TV panels tend to get most of the press, you have to keep in mind that this show also has one of the largest dealers' rooms in the country. And everyone is bringing something to sell.

That tends to be where you, the collector, come in. To further entice buyers, companies capitalize on Comic-Con by putting out exclusive collectibles, comics, prints, lithographs, action figures, statues, and everything else under the sun. Some of these items may even be available online for fans who can't make it to San Diego. But if you really want them, then your best bet is always to be there in person on Wednesday, July 19 for Preview Night, or Thursday, July 20 for the first day of the show.
