A ‘Deadpool’ and ‘X-Men’ Spinoff Called ‘X-Force’ Will Start Shooting This Summer
Are you ready to see the Merc With a Mouth team up with Wolverine?
When it was announced The Walt Disney Company, which owns Marvel Studios, had bought up a big chunk of 20th Century Fox, which controls the Deadpool franchise, fans speculated a mash-up movie of all your favorite Marvel characters could be coming.
Their instincts were right: a Deadpool and spinoff, called X-Force, will reportedly begin filming this summer, according to Production Weekly.
Word is out that the Merc With a Mouth himself, Ryan Reynolds, and Cable actor Josh Brolin will join forces with some of your favorite characters from the X-Men universe, although it is unknown which.
It is also unknown if previous X-Men actors will join the movie or if they will bring in a new cast. We’ve already seen two separate X-Men franchises, the first starring Halle Berry and Ian McKellen and the second starring Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence.
There are also two X-Men TV shows on the air, Legion and The Gifted, and another coming, The New Mutants. So any hope of continuity is pretty much out the window.
Until then, Deadpool 2 hits theaters May 18th.
