'X-Force' Will Be the Next X-Men Movie

Superhero teams are popular these days, and Fox is the latest studio to jump on the trend. The upcoming  X-Force movie will follow next year's X-Men outing, Days of Future Past.

It's still early, so there aren't many details. Here's what we've got: Jeff Wadlow, director and writer of Kick-Ass 2, will direct the movie. And despite rumors, the plot will not include X-Statix, Peter Milligan's take on the X-Force team.

"I can pretty much eliminate some sites' suggestion that the Milligan X-Statix stuff is in the mix," wrote creator/comic book writer Rob Liefeld. "An X-Force film is Cable. Is Deadpool."

The first X-Force incarnation consisted of Cable, Boom-Boom, Cannonball, Domino (really Copycat), Feral, Shatterstar and Warpath. It didn't include Deadpool. Though always present, Wade Wilson didn't join until 2010's Uncanny X-Force, whose lineup didn't include Cable. So the adaptation will apparently take a few liberties with the team. And although Ryan Reynolds portrayed Deadpool in the critically panned Wolverine Origins, it isn't safe to assume that he is a shoe-in for the part once again. When asked about reprising his role as the merc with a mouth, Reynolds replied that he didn't know anything about the movie.

"If I knew what X-Force was, I would," said Reynold when asked by MTV News if there were plans to include his Deadpool in the film. "It sounds a little bit like a 1985 Chuck Norris vehicle...I don't know what X-Force is, but it sounds great."

X-Men: Days of Future Past will reach theaters on May 23, 2014. X-Force currently does not have a release date.
