BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
In case you hadn't noticed, Deadpool is getting quite a bit of buzz. Critics have been giving it positive reviews the last few days, raising its profile, and right now it looks like the comic book movie could make as much as $70 million in its first weekend. So you know what that means... it's sequel time!
Beyond more Deadpool adventures, there’s another faction of the X-Men universe that Ryan Reynolds would also like to finally see on the big screen.
Earlier this week at a special Deadpool screening, Ryan Reynolds touched on superhero movies being rated R, and suggested that X-Force might be a good candidate for the more adult themed club.
Although it was announced in 2013, there’s been no word on whether the X-Force movie is moving forward, but now we know the heroes that were being looked at to headline the story at one point.
The good news for Fox is that there are many directions to take the X-Men franchise post-Apocalypse, as Marvel Comics spent years developing new titles and runs for various mutant characters.
Lots of people, including Ryan Reynolds, have ideas about Fox's comic book universe. For example, he'd like to see an X-Force movie led by Cable, which would rule.
New Mutants are now in the mix, but what are the titles that the X-Men franchise can use to compete with both Marvel and DC in the years between now and 2019 and 2020? We have a few ideas...
The X-Men series holds infinite mutant possibilities for a number of strong characters. And while The Fantastic Four are just re-starting their mythos, the core group have several satellite affiliations that could make the transition from the page to the silver screen.
Because X-Force is one of those Marvel teams that existed in several different versions, with characters such as Wolverine, Storm and Cyclops dropping in an out as they interacted with lesser-known characters such as Sunspot and Warpath, I wanted to know what version of the team Wadlow wanted to pursue. Specifically, I asked him about the importance of team leader Cable to his draft.
The X-Force was a team of mutants led by the cyborg hero Cable. It was populated by members of The New Mutants, but transitioned members on its roster over the years, pulling in recognizable heroes like Cyclops, Cannonball, Deadpool, Wolverine, Sunspot and Warpath.
