Deadpool Star Ryan Reynolds Wants to Make an X-Force Movie
"I really want to get that in."
The irreverent, violent, foul-mouthed superhero Deadpool is about to hit cinemas. Star Ryan Reynolds has been speaking about where he'd like to take the character next, and has revealed that he wants to make an X-Force movie.
Speaking to Filmstarts, Reynolds gave every indication that he would be playing the character for some time. "In the future, if we're doing a bunch more Deadpool movies, we're gonna really explore the X-Men a lot," he said. "And maybe X-Force. X-Force is really my priority. I really want to get that in."
X-Force is a superhero team that was conceived by Deadpool's co-creator Rob Liefeld. They first appeared the 100th issue of Marvel's X-Men spinoff comic The New Mutants in 1991, and have gone on to include such heroes as Cyclops, Psylocke, Wolverine, Storm, and Colossus, as well as Deadpool.
In an interview with Buzzfeed, Reynolds also spoke about the naked fight that he performs in Deadpool with Ajax, played by Ed Skrein. "There was a lot of me there," he said. "There's nothing else you can do except to just sorta grin, bear it, and go, ‘All right guys, we're all going to get to really know each other today. I may be sitting on this man's face at some point, he may be sitting on mine.' It was ugly but necessary."
Deadpool opens this Friday (February 12). It is directed by Tim Miller, and also stars Morena Baccarin, TJ Miller, and Gina Carano.
