It seems the Deadpool 2 inspired film about superteam X-Force is a well-elaborated sham to keep Josh Brolin at FOX and we all bought it!
At least that’s what Once Upon A Deadpool, the moderated version of Deadpool 2, showed us in one of the end credits scene. If you remember, Wade Wilson/Deadpool changes the events surrounding the hilarious deaths of X-Force when they’re dropping from an airplane to rescue Julian Dennison’s Russel. While the whole team still dies in a hilarious manner, Deadpool only saves Rob Delaney’s Peter and tells him to walk away. Once Upon A Deadpool changes one line in Wilson’s dialogue and tells Peter that X-Force was just a marketing tool designed by FOX to keep Josh Brolin employed:
Peter: WOO HOO – X-Force!
Wade: Peter! Walk…away! Just walk away
Peter: But, we’re X-Force.
Wade: Nope. We’re not. X-Force is just a marketing tool designed by Fox executives to keep Josh Brolin employed. It doesn’t exist.
Peter: Well, this has been pretty scary. And I need to feed my cats.
Wade: Go home sugar bear. Go home.
Peter: Okay, will you give Domino my email?“
Of course, this is only a rather elaborated bit done by writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to keep us guessing about the uncertainty of the X-Force film. The movie is reportedly being directed and penned by Drew Goddard but the Disney/FOX merger is still having us wondering if it will ever happen anytime soon. Deadpool 3 is also allegedly under development by Reese, Wernick and Ryan Reynolds himself.
Do you think the X-Force film is a well-elaborated lie to keep Josh Brolin at FOX? Comment below!
Directed by David Leith from a script written by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick & Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, and Jack Kesy.
After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
Once Upon A Deadpool is available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD.
What We Learned About ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ At CCXP
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios shared some brand new information on their highly-anticipated sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The film, which is the follow-up to 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming marks the return of Tom Holland as Peter Parker following the release of Avengers: Endgame and will also feature the cinematic debut of Mysterio, who is portrayed by Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal.
Here are some of the things we have learned about Spider-Man: Far From Home following its presentation at the 2018 Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil. Click "Next" to find out.
1. Peter Parker & Michelle Will Be Involved Romantically
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw Peter crushing on Liz Allan (Laura Harrier), who has since moved away from Queens, New York with her mother following the fallout of her father Adrian Toomes' (Michael Keaton) crimes as the Vulture. With Liz now out of the picture, we have Michelle Jones (Zendaya) also known as "MJ" that Peter has his eyes on. In Homecoming, Michelle seemed to tow the line between cold and friendly to Peter, with hints that she was romantically interested in him the whole time.
Now, it looks like Peter and Michelle have since grown closer with one another following the events of Homecoming. Perhaps their romantic connection will play a significant role in Peter's motivations in Far From Home.
2. Aunt May Supports Her Nephew As Spider-Man In Far From Home
Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) found out about her beloved nephew Peter's secret at the end of Homecoming. Now that she's aware that he continues his hero work as our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, she is also fully-supportive of him despite the fact that he continues to put himself in danger.
3. Happy Hogan & Aunt May Share A Romantic Affair
This one comes as a bit of a surprise. Based off of information from CCXP, it appears that Aunt May is romantically involved with none other than Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). This certainly won't be awkward for Peter.
4. Spider-Man & Mysterio Start Are Brought Together By Nick Fury
The narrative for Far From Home will begin with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) bringing Spider-Man and Quentin Blake/Mysterio together for a mission in which they must hunt down the Elementals. Mysterio has some knowledge about the Elementals and wants to defeat them to make the world safer.
The unlikely duo has been described to have a "brothers in arms" dynamic. What could possibly go wrong?
5. Spider-Man & Mysterio's Relationship Is The Central Focus
During the presentation at CCXP, Gyllenhaal revealed that Far From Home will be a unique Spider-Man film due to the relationship between the beloved hero and Mysterio:
"The central point of the film is the relationship of Peter with Mysterio, which is a completely new dynamic. Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man. There's no one more professional than him."
Seeing Holland and Gyllenhaal acting alongside eachother will certainly be a highlight.
