You know, when looking at the recruitment process for X-Force, Wade Wilson and Weasel had a pretty strict criteria. For example, Domino’s luck doesn’t really count as a superpower. And it’s best if you just meet in the middle with Wade and say that it’s ultimately not a mutant power. But Deadpool 2, now available on home release, gave moviegoers their first taste of what will culminate in Drew Goddard’s X-Force film. However, it turns out that during Wade’s time travel shenanigans in the film’s credits, a new X-Force was meant to come out of this.
During an Academy screening for Deadpool 2, because how can you not give Wade Wilson an Oscar after his performance, the panel, which included Ryan Reynolds, writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and character co-creator Rob Liefeld, it was revealed, and later shared on Liefeld’s Facebook page, that not only would Peter show up with a prosthetic arm, but new mutants- no, not The New Mutants– would show up to audition for a new X-Force.
No word on who would be in that team lineup, though. Maybe pull someone from the other X-Men films? Other X-Force characters? Does Olivia Munn’s Psylocke somehow up in Deadpool’s timeline to join the team? No. This is all just random and baseless speculation on my part, but given what we saw Wade do when he traveled through time, it would’ve been interesting to see if any of these new X-Force recruits possibly made it into the X-Force film itself.

DEADPOOL Q&A Academy Screening! The Academy screening filled the legendary Zanuck Theater on the Fox lot last night. The place was at capacity and the sense I got was that many of these folks were seeing the film for the first time. My son turned to me after the first few roars of fresh laughter and said “Have these people really not seen this yet?” “Welcome to Hollywood, son.” I whispered back. Feels like some academy members may wait until screening season to catch up. Afterwards there was a spirited Q&A with Ryan and his co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Each of them are writers are on the film as well as producers. The big takeaways from the Q&A are as follows. 1) The purpose of Deadpool 2 was to find Wade a family and a sense of belonging amongst the dysfunctional X-Force, hence it being a “family” film. 2) Hiding the fate of X-Force was priority and they enjoyed the mis-direct created with the extra attention marketing provided by making them seem more important in the grand scheme. 3) THE CODA’S were shot after the film had been testing well and they were not glimpsed until the film’s release. 4) TIME TRAVEL can be tricky but they utilized it as a means of changing Vanessa’s fate, something they hotly debated given it could be seen as cowardly but ultimately felt served the characters the best. 5. Ryan shared that un-used CODA’S involved Deadpool peeing on ShatterStar’s grave, Peter showing up with a prosthetic arm and an entire new X-Force team auditioning. 6. DEADPOOL 3 – Ryan said there is no shortage of ideas for DP 3 and in fact Paul Wernick pitched him a fresh take in the lobby prior to the Q&A. Rhett commented that X-Force is brewing as well, very exciting. 7) The turnaround between the 1st and 2nd film was a brisk 12 months. I’d say they nailed it! Good news all around. Wishing the film and its award campaign the very best! #deadpool #marvel
However, we’ve got Once Upon a Deadpool hitting theaters for a limited amount of time soon, so what if that abridged take on Deadpool 2 included somewhere in its new footage some hints of the new X-Force recruits?
Ultimately, though, who would you want to see make up the team in the upcoming X-Force film? Should we see any returning members from Deadpool 2 or would you want to see new faces make up the team? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned for more X-Force updates.
Deadpool 2 is available now on Digital HD, 4K, Blu-Ray, and DVD. X-Force is being written and directed by Drew Goddard.
