I had hoped that the X-Force movie would actually happen, and it looks like Fox is moving forward.

X-Force is a team of mutants whose lineup changes all of the time. Cable was the first leader of the team and the original lineup included Domino, Shatterstar, and Cannonball. Other iterations of the team included Wolverine as leader and Deadpool, Psylocke, Archangel, and Fantomex as his squad.

Perhaps you’ve noticed that Fox has the rights to a few of those names. Perhaps you’ve seen that writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick said in January that Deadpool 2 would help set up an X-Force movie. It won’t focus on it, but I’m guessing that having two of three characters we’ve seen in X-Force comics (plus I think Colossus has been in X-Force before…), the Deadpool sequel cannot help but get us in the mood for the more militant branch of the X-Men family.

In even more good news, Drew Goddard is attached to write and direct the X-Force movie. Goddard wrote The Martian and directed the excellent Cabin In The Woods, so I think this is a good sign of things to come. Goddard understands the humor needed to write for Deadpool and a team of mutants. He also gets how to film something that will likely involve a lot of CGI and action mixed with character moments.

Josh Brolin’s Cable and Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool are going to be in the flick for sure. I’m guessing we will also get Domino and I wouldn’t put it past Fox to get a few new mutants up and going for this. After all, they’ve got New Mutants happening and another X-Men rebooted timeline sequel, so why not bring even more mutants into the fold? Will they attempt to bring back Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine? I think no. But also maybe. Definitely they’ll try. Probably.

I am stoked, kids. Now let’s impeach that Orange Shitstain so we all live to see this flick.
