Deadpool Will Continue His Rated-R Streak in X-Force

The X-Men franchise has always had that hit-or-miss quality, with some people finding it to be a good run regardless of the timeline, it's safe to say that it has never seen as much anticipation as it has now.

And that's because, the cast will be expanded by a big mouth. Alleged director of the upcoming X Force Simon Kinberg has confirmed with Deadline that Deadpool will be joining Cable with the other main stars. If you're not convinced, here's his exact words.

"We are working hard on New Mutants, Gambit with Channing Tatum, Deadpool 2 and the new X Force movie where Deadpool is alongside Cable and other main characters. We are taking chances and those chances are being rewarded commercially and critically. We'll continue to keep taking chances. It means each of the different movies will have different reasons for being."

A personal first thought here—how exactly will the dynamics go? X-Men is already technically shaped as far as its tone is concerned. And except for Deadpool's run with Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead, we don't know just how well their dynamics will merge. Kinberg seems to have already taken this into consideration.

"They're much darker and have an R-rated decibel. There are other X-Men characters coming into X-Force at different times in the comic, but it's separate from X-Men. There is a larger architecture to tell these stories in… It's something that's fun, exciting, and it will be interesting to see how we marry the different tones that we've been generating in these standalone movies of the X-Men universe."

From the looks of it, this will be outside the Marvel Cinematic Universe gearing towards the Avengers: Infinity War culmination. But I'd be very much lying if I said that I'm not looking forward to this kind of universe building. After all, when the gang meets the straight-As, the jokers, and especially the two Black Ops of X-Men, as Kinberg calls Deadpool and Cable, I'm sure we'll be seeing some expertly woven narrative.

Deadpool 2 is already in production for a 2018 release.
