Deadpool Will Feature In X-Force Movie, X-Men Producer Confirms
Cable will be in there too.
Deadpool will feature in the X-Force movie. Producer Simon Kinberg has confirmed that the wisecracking mercenary will play a part in the X-Men spinoff, which is currently in development.
In an interview with Deadline, Kinberg spoke the various X-Men titles that are currently in the works. "We are working hard on New Mutants, Gambit with Channing Tatum, Deadpool 2, and the new X-Force movie where Deadpool is alongside Cable and other main characters," he said.
Although it has been known that Fox are planning an X-Force movie for some time, this is the first confirmation that it will include Deadpool. Star Ryan Reynolds has previously stated that he was keen to do an X-Force movie, saying: "X-Force is really my priority. I really want to get that in." However, this was before Deadpool became the most successful film in the X-Men franchise, and since then the focus has been on Deadpool 2.
In addition to the X-Force movie, Cable is expected to appear in Deadpool 2, which begins shooting soon. There have been various rumors about who might play the character, with Stranger Things star David Harbour most recently reported to be in the running.
A hilarious first teaser for Deadpool 2 was released last week--check it out here.
Last month it was reported that A-Team director Joe Carnahan had been hired to write the script for the X-Force film. Carnahan also recently completed the script for the Uncharted movie.
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 other heroes as Cyclops, Psylocke, Wolverine, Storm, and Colossus.
