Deadpool, X-Men Spin-Off Movie ‘X-Force’ Set To Begin Filming This Fall; Here’s What We Know So Far
Deadpool 2 (Is that really going to be the film’s name? No way, right?) hasn’t even hit theaters yet and we’ve already got some terrific news that Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin and the gang are scheduled to start production on an X-Force film this coming fall.
With X-Men: Dark Phoenix, The New Mutants and Channing Tatum’s Gambit films on the horizon, new TV shows Legion and The Gifted, and the addition of an X-Force movie, shows that the X-Men cinematic universe is most definitely headed in a whole new direction.
For those unfamiliar, the X-Force, which was conceived by Rob Liefeld, the same writer/illustrator who created Deadpool and Cable, consists of many of the same characters we have seen and will be seeing in the Deadpool films. You’ve got those two main guys (Cable is the leader), Domino and Psylocke, for starters. The additions of characters like Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead to the team also wouldn’t be a surprise. Plus we could see new characters introduced such as Wolverine (finally), Shatterstar, Wolfsbane, Archangel, and X-23, AKA Dafne Keen, the cloned daughter of Wolverine.
Needless to say, with a roster like that, these mutants take a very different and significantly more violent approach to stopping bad guys than the X-Men do.
