There’s a scene in Deadpool 2 regarding X-Force that has got many people talking and Drew Goddard has offered his thoughts. Spoilers follow…
These days, especially in the superhero realm, films are always laying the groundwork for future entries, everything leads to something else. Deadpool 2, in typical fashion, made sure to have a bit of fun with this notion.
Many fans are looking forward to the Drew Goddard directed X-Force which will see Deadpool team up with a band of super powered friends. The X-Force team even appears in Deadpool 2 but as fans now know, the majority of the team are quickly killed off in amusing fashion.
Drew Goddard was completely onboard with this idea and has told EW that he was well aware of what would take place: “To be honest, I think that’s why it excited me so much. I remember reading that scene and just cackling with delight, specifically because it was the very last thing you’d expect to happen in one of these movies. These movies are so careful to set up the next thing and the next thing, and it made me so happy.”
Goddard made sure to tell Reynolds and team just to go ahead and make their movie and that he will worry about the details surrounding X-Force when it comes to it. The director also confirmd that Deadpool, Cable, and Domino will make up the core of the team.
Marvel’s motormouth mercenary is back! Bigger, better and occasionally more pantless than ever before. When a super soldier arrives on a murderous mission, Deadpool is forced to think about friendship, family and what it really means to be a hero – all while kicking 50 shades of ass. Because, sometimes, to do the right thing you need to fight dirty.
