Ryan Reynolds Has Made ‘X-Force’ One Of His Future Priorities

There’s one X-Men spin-off that fans have been wanting for quite some time now: X-Force. A few years back it was announced that 20th Century Fox had the project in development but it was recently learned that the scipt that had been turned in had been scrapped for a number of reasons.

However, that in no way means that we won’t be seeing an incarnation of the covert mutant team hitting the big screens in the future. Especially if Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds has anything to say about it, as he told Filmstarts that he’s made that one a “priority”. The actor told the outlet the following about the potential future for the character in 20th Century Fox’s growing X-Men universe.

In the future I think, if we’re doing a bunch more Deadpool movies, we’re really going to explore the X-Men a lot, and maybe X-Force. X-Force is really my priority. I really want to get that in.

There’s been quite a bit of chatted about Cable appearing in the likely Deadpool sequel. If the time travelling mutant does indeed appear, I’d say that X-Force is something that is very likely in Reynolds future. But what incarnation of the team would make up the film’s line-up? Will they go after a classic line-up similar to the one was featured in the scrapped script or possibly lean towards something along the Uncanny X-Force line-up featured above? Let us know what you think and who you’d like to see on the squad in the comments section below.
