X-Force to debut on screen following Deadpool 2

After writers, directors, and even the casting had been talking about Deadpool 2, it may have seemed like it was then a foregone conclusion. But at CinemaCon, 20th Century Fox made it official: Deadpool 2 is coming. Taking the hype, now that director Tim Miller (along with actor Ryan Reynolds) will be returning for the sequel to Deadpool, the success of Wade Wilson’s R-rated flick and the teased debut of Cable in the sequel have left fans wondering about another potential X-Men spinoff, X-Force.

With the official Deadpool 2 announcement out of CinemaCon last week, we all know that from the concept art that 20th Century Fox has considered an X-Force movie and the idea should float on the save stream of momentum that has propelled Deadpool to become the highest grossing R-rated movie of all time.

Hot on the spurs of Deadpool and the impending debut of Cable in Deadpool 2 or his own solo film, we figure it is only a matter of time until 20th Century Fox announce an X-Force movie.

Tim Miller had some thoughts on what an X-Force movie should be, and he shared them:

I will just say I would like it to be an R-rated movie, but I have always been very realistic. We are not making fine art here. This is commerce. So if for some reason there was a story that needed to be bigger and needed to be within a certain budget, and it did not warrant an R-rated budget, although it is harder to make that argument now after Deadpool, but let us say we were saying it before Deadpool came out; I understand that. I am not one of those directors who goes ‘I want it because I want it!’ and ‘It should be because I think it should be!’ There is economics at work here, and I would like it to be R-rated. And I know there was some talk around Hollywood, and James Gunn talked about it, and I agree very much with what he said. I think Deadpool worked because of what it was. I think Deadpool worked because it was funny. I think Deadpool worked because it did not take itself seriously. That is why it worked as an R-rated film. I am not sure any superhero movie will work as an R-rated film. I am not sure some members of the public are going to be happy with the blood and gore if it is not balanced with humour and the other stuff.

In which regards to Deadpool, the movie will see the return of director Tim Miller, writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and of course, actor Ryan Reynolds. As has been argued about since literally the end credits of Deadpool, Cable will meet him for the sequel.

20th Century Fox previously announced that they reserved the dates of October 6th, 2017, and January 12th, 2018, for untitled Marvel Comics films. Deadpool 2 will likely take one of those slots.

Deadpool arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on May 10, 2016.
