Ryan Reynolds is on top of the world right now and a the peak of his powers. While everyone is awaiting the release of Deadpool to the public, Reynolds has his sight set on what could be next for his red suited alter ego. Reynold now has his sights set on an X-Force movie! At this point, given what has happened with Deadpool, when Reynolds focusses on something, it probably means it’s going to get done.
Reynolds recently spoke with German outlet FILMSTARTS during the Deadpool junket. He was asked about how the character fits in with the X-Men universe and what could be next, to which Reynolds replied in kind by saying the following:
There’s so much material to mine in just the X-Men universe … In the future, if we’re doing a bunch more Deadpool movies, we’re really going to explore the X-Men a lot. We’ll see. And maybe X-Force — X-Force is my priority. I really want to get that in.
With a possible X-Force film on the horizon, this will excite fans of Deadpool and X-Men alike! However at the moment X-Force appears to be in development hell. Kick Ass writer Jeff Wadlow was already commissioned to write a script almost 2 full years ago and still no movement on greenlighting the project. The project could be contingent on the financial success of Deadpool, so if you want more Deadpool, more Reynolds, and more X-Men then go see the upcoming Deadpool movie this weekend and tell the studio with your dollars!
The future of Deadpool and the rest of the X-Men franchise is still unclear, knowing that Reynolds is as passionate as he is, and it’s that same passion that allowed for Deadpool to come to fruition, him saying he is focussed on getting an X-Force film made, is music to our ears.
