Ryan Reynolds wants Deadpool in X-Force
On the eve of Ryan Reynolds‘ labour of love, Deadpool, hitting UK theaters (I’m so damn excited!), the star has given us geeklings a roadmap of what he’d like to do with the “Merc with a mouth” next. And it involves donning a grey version of his beloved suit.
Yep, you read right, folks. Reynolds wants to see more Deadpool in the X-Men universe, though in particular he has his sights firmly set on the beleaguered X-Force movie.
“X-Force is my priority. I really want to get that in”
If you remember, writer Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2) was signed on to get a screenplay sorted out, with things appearing to be going smoothly. We even heard rumours of potential characters involved due to some concept art, with Warpath, Cable, Domino, Cannonball and Feral featured (no Deadpool though).
However since then, other X-Men projects have moved forward (like New Mutants, for example), while X-Force has been left bringing up the rear. Well Reynolds’ drive may very well give X-Force the kickstart it needs.
Speaking with Filmstarts, the star commented: “There’s so much material to mine in just the X-Men universe! In the future, if we’re doing a bunch more Deadpool movies, we’re really going to explore the X-Men a lot. We’ll see. And maybe X-Force – X-Force is my priority. I really want to get that in”.
With any luck, Reynolds’ interest along with Deadpool’s success (if early impressions and reviews are anything to go by) will help to speed along X-Force. Then we’ll (hopefully) get to see Wilson and Summers on the big screen together!
Until then… here’s the most recent red band trailer for Deadpool… of course, NSFW.
