X-Force Is A 'Priority' for Deadpool's Future Says Ryan Reynolds

Deadpool may be the most "standalone" movie in the X-Men franchise to date, but it's not without its clear ties to the mutant superhero team. That's why Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead are in the film as supporting characters.

If Deadpool is a hit though - and all signs are pointing to that being the case - then Deadpool 2 is most likely the next project for star Ryan Reynolds and the "Merc with a Mouth" before the character enlists in any X-Men team movies - and when he eventually (and inevitably) does, it could be with X-Force.

Much like the Deadpool character, and other popular early '90s Marvel Comics mutants including Cable and Domino, the original X-Force (which served as a spinoff of The New Mutants) was largely a creation of Rob Liefeld. And where The New Mutants is another movie Twentieth Century Fox is actively developing, X-Force (which also has a script by Jeff Wadlow) will need some serious re-working.

As Liefeld revealed himself around the time of X-Men: Days of Future Past releasing in 2014, the plans for X-Men: Apocalypse as the next core X-movie threw a wrench in any X-Force plans since it was also using the character of Apocalypse.
