Ryan Reynolds starrer Deadpool’s global box office collections crossed $800 million marks while the cost of production was less than $60 million, making it the most successful superhero movie in the entire X-men franchise. Such an incredible showing at the global box-office immediately spurred the talk of a possible sequel, the sequel is in the works (Cable is already in the fray) and the studio has expressed its intent in creating a vibrant Deadpool franchise as it’s proved to be a cash cow.
There has been strong speculation about Deadpool crossing paths with the X-Force in the future. Well, it stands confirmed by the script-writers but they want to do a major crossover between Deadpool and X-Force for the third movie in the franchise.As far as Deadpool 2 is concerned, Rhett Reese (script-writer) told Collider –
“There is a responsibility we have towards the X-Force universe, and I do think we will not disappoint the fans going into Deadpool 2. Its purpose is not to set up X-Force. It will likely set up X-Force, but the drive of the movie won’t be our eyes on Movie 3.”
In a recent interview with THR, he pointed out that if we want to compete with MCU or DCEU, the tone of the Deadpool movies need to be ‘sillier’ and ‘edgier’ as that really worked for the first movie. He said –
“I think what we stumbled into was a new tone, and I haven’t seen Logan, so it’s tough to say if they have it, but I think we hope to have our own universe that is defined less by characters and timelines and things like that and more by tone. The hope is Deadpool 2 and X-Force and future movies all be this new, consistent, sillier tone. More self-aware tone. And edgier and rated-R tone. We want to be establishing the universe but also focusing on each individual movie and not worrying too much about building a larger threat to the world or a larger plot machination.”
Wishing them all the best for the future Deadpool movies. CHEERS!
Once in Marvel comics, Deadpool is hired by someone to kill someone important and X-force is brought in to stop him. If there is one comic-book plot that ties all three projects of FCU it’s “X-Cutioner’s Song” wherein Cable attempts to kill his clone who happens to be working for Apocalypse.
