Fox Studio took a risk when they invested into the first Deadpool movie. The character was unknown to most, but the team behind it was passionate enough for the studio to really invest their time into this superhero. The movie broke barriers with its originality and made plenty of money worldwide. Since then, Deadpool has become one of the top priorities of the studio. And judging from the demands for two new films, it’s safe to say that they may have found their next big hero.
Deadpool 2 has been pre-production, taking their time to hire the perfect cast to compliment the wacky nature of the Merc with the Mouth. Cable and Domino have been reported to be both cast, which further gives way for the upcoming X-Force film to be in the making. But since all three characters are planned for in Deadpool 2, Deadpool 3 and The X-Force movie, hesitations of the films being more or less the same becomes a questionable doubt.
Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick recently talked about this subject in their interview with Cinemablend. The writers have the task of not only writing the sequel but the prequel as well. Reese said:
“Yeah, Deadpool 3 will be different from X-Force. So I think we’ll be able to take two paths. One is where we’re launching something bigger, but then another where we’re contracting and staying personal and small. So I think best of all worlds, really.”
Reese also talked about how Deadpool 2 will be key into tapping into the potential new universe that has yet to be explored in Fox’s Marvel Universe. The writer stated:
“I also think it’s working in an expansive way towards X-Force, which will really be more of an ensemble. But then that will allow us to do both an X-Force movie and a Deadpool 3, which actually contracts back down.”
