After many years of building up anticipation, the big screen version of X-Force is finally coming together. For the longest time there was a great deal of expectation that the events that unfold in Deadpool 2 would somehow lead to the formation of the notably violent mutant squad, and the most recent trailer for the blockbuster confirmed that the team will have a role to play in the movie. Really, at this stage the only thing we don't know is the full roster of characters that make up the lineup, but that's exactly what we're here to discuss today.

Using evidence provided to us through interviews and footage from the various Deadpool 2 trailers, we've put together this feature looking at what we believe to be the ensemble that makes up the first ever live-action take on X-Force. Some of it is a bit speculative, and could wind up being incorrect, but this is basically what we know so far...

Deadpool

Let's start with the easy one. Based on the most recent trailer, it looks like the movie world will soon see Deadpool as the leader and recruiter of X-Force -- bringing the team together so that they can help him keep a young mutant (played by Julian Dennison) safe from Cable (Josh Brolin). Of course, the Merc With The Mouth isn't much of a leader, which should create a few problems, but he certainly is very skilled at what he does thanks to his incredible healing factor.

In the comics, Deadpool has been closely associated with X-Force from the very beginning, his second appearance ever being in X-Force #2, but it should be noted that he didn't actually start off as a member of the group. Instead, he was originally introduced as antagonist for the squad, which was formed under the leadership of Cable (making the juxtaposition in Deadpool 2 a bit funny). That said, he not only eventually wound up joining the early version of the team, but has also been a part of multiple iterations since -- one of the most notable being Rick Remender's Uncanny X-Force.
