For a few months now there have been rumours that Deadpool 3 would be actually be a fully-fledged X-Force movie, after various people behind the films suggested that the Deadpool series would be a springboard for X-Force.
Not so, apparently.
Speaking with Cinema Blend, writer Rhett Reese has confirmed that Deadpool 3 and X-Force are being planned as two separate films.
“I also think Deadpool 2 is working in an expansive way towards X-Force, which will really be more of an ensemble,” he says. “But then that will allow us to do both an X-Force movie and a Deadpool 3… 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.”
But the big question surely is: will X-Force be the first sweary, bloody superhero team movie?
