With the release of Deadpool 2, we finally got our first look at an onscreen X-Force. The team was made up of a number of characters so the question of who would highlight the team in Drew Goddard’s X-Force film has been a question for many. But now the director has confirmed the team’s official lineup.
As we know Deadpool 2 featured the rather unfortunate deaths of almost the entire team except for Deadpool, Cable, and Domino and according to Goddard, this trio will be the film’s main focus. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly Goddard had this to say,
“It really all stems from a place of love; I love those comics, I love Ryan [Reynolds], I love Josh [Brolin] and I love Zazie Beetz. When I think of the comics, I think of Cable and Domino and Deadpool, and it’s really just knowing, ‘Oh, right, there’s a world in the X-Universe for the blunt instruments of mutantdom.’ It’s much more about the characters and my love for them than it is about any plot or storyline. It’s more about loving them and wanting to see them bounce off each other.”
In itself, Deadpool 2 was essentially an X-Force film just with a little more focus on the Merc With a Mouth. So that still leaves a wealth of stories to tell centering around the team’s other stars Cable and Domino. But for now, the plot of the movie is unknown. Thankfully though Goddard had this to say about the film,
“I trust that my love of these three will lead me someplace new,”
So as we draw closer to the release of X-Force make sure to stay tuned to SuperBroMovies for any updates.
