Deadpool and Cable Will Headline X-FORCE Movie

Fans of the X-Men franchise have recently found it difficult to keep track of the movie series. After all, while X-Men: Apocalypse takes place in the 1980s, there’s the newly-released Logan that takes place in 2029 with a supposedly different timeline. While film producer Simon Kinberg attempted to explain this confusion, he revealed a key detail for the upcoming X-Force film; it’ll star Deadpool and Cable as the leads.

It’s been previously teased by the Deadpool 2 writers that the titular character could be crossing into X-Force, and it certainly makes sense. After all, Deadpool and Cable were two long-running members of the team. In the below quote Kinberg reveals the details while promoting the release of Logan.

Per Kinberg:

“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. Deadpool 2 is going into production this year. Then X Force which is a combination of Deadpool, and Cable, they’re like the Black ops of the X-Men. They’re much darker and have an R-rated decibel. There are other X-Men characters coming into X-Force at different times in the comic, but it’s separate from X-Men.

There is a larger architecture to tell these stories in. I talk to the studio all the time about this and there is a plan for how these movies can connect and be a part of a larger narrative. It’s something that’s fun, exciting and it will be interesting to see how we marry the different tones that we’ve been generating in these standalone movies of the X-Men universe. But we go into making the best movie we can. It’s not just about a Colossus or Deadpool cameo. Connecting all of these movies will happen when it organically makes sense. These movies aren’t simply being built as stepping stones to a larger story. Each one is wholly enclosed and a movie worth seeing.”

Although it’s not confirmed who will still be writing or directing the upcoming X-Force film, we should expect that the recent success of Deadpool and Logan will provide Fox with enough reason to get the project into production. It’s only a matter of time before more news becomes available.

Until then, we’ll be able to see Deadpool and Cable in Deadpool 2 on March 2, 2018.
