BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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.
