Ryan Reynolds would like to see a Rated-R X-Force Movie follow Deadpool
At the surprise fan Deadpool screening that recently took place, Ryan Reynolds paid a visit and talked to fans about the movie and the possibility of potential spin offs and sequels. Not only does the Deadpool sequel have a chance of being a Deadpool/Cable team-up (team-ups are where the real box-office money is at, after all), but Reynolds also offered some hopeful insight into the possible X-Force movie.
Reynolds was quoted as saying:
“I think it has to [open the door for more R-rated superhero movies], I hope so. There are a lot of superhero movies out there on the market. It’s a genre unto itself. I personally would like to see more rated R ones. I just think it’s time. We’ll see if this holds. Hollywood shamefully copycats every movie that works – so if this does work, you’ll probably see more rated R films! I don’t think you’re going to see a rated R Avengers movie, but there’s room for other ones. I think there’s room for a rated-R X-Force movie!”
Reynolds seems delighted at the idea that in this age of unoriginal ideas and shameless copycats and reboots, if his formula is successful then we might see more violent, brutal, and tasteless rated-R superhero films follow suit. And we’re talking mainstream heroes, not small time cult movies like Kickass and Super.
X-Force is a comic book team that classically always has Deadpool and Cable on it in some form, while rotating other characters through the incarnations. Think DC’s Suicide Squad, although not identical. The team typically has a deadlier cast of characters than cousin team, X-Men (although tour de force and most brutal X-Men character Wolverine has been known to join the X-Force every now and then). An X-Force movie has been in script hell for the past few years, but if Reynolds Deadpool is nearly as successful as we think it is going to be, we will be seeing an X-Force movie much sooner rather than later. Especially since their X-Men run is nearing it’s end.
Don’t miss Deadpool, dropping into theaters February 12th, 2016.
