Two years after the first Deadpool film stormed into theaters to become the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time, Ryan Reynolds is back as the Merc with a Mouth with a sequel packed with bigger action and a bigger cast. But movie lovers are also looking ahead, eyeing another Deadpool-starring film that sits on the horizon: X-Force. Even though Deadpool is included in nearly every scene, the film as a whole has the air of an ensemble project and is a direct reflection of Reynolds' selfless act of putting his ego on the back-burner for the sake of the whole.
Last fall, Fox set The Cabin in the Woods writer/director Drew Goddard to write and direct X-Force, but since then updates on the film have been quiet. It's rare that the humor works in this film - like an episode of Family Guy, this seems more dedicated to just overloading the script full of references, within or outside of the Marvel universe, than it is in attempting to be amusing.
Here, the emotional pull is that (for reasons I won't spoil but will again mention feel abrupt and not as executed as well as they should be) Wade Wilson wants to die, but as we know has regenerative powers refusing to let him go into the light. This is a nod to the fact Deadpool, like a lot Marvel characters from the X-Men universe, has been owned by 20th Century Fox.
Were you shocked to see Ryan Reynolds on "Mask King" this week? But once I got my head round it and once Julian Dennison's Russell really started to fire up, I was well into it.
Of course, you only need to peek at Goddard's resume to see why Reynolds is excited to work with the director. The best news of all is that the future looks very bright for X-Force as long as there is a playfully inventive script that can give objective to many of the numerous characters.

"There's a storyline that everyone's happy with, but there isn't a script yet". Cable is arguably the most intriguing character of all in "Deadpool 2", and there's more to come.
"It's all story first".
After another judge complimented Reynolds' work in the 2006 film Smokin' Aces, the 41-year-old continues: "Thank you guys for having me". And it's a ways away from shooting still, and I don't even have an idea as to the exact date. But the X-Force has a diamond in the rough, as the standout of the team and the entire movie is Zazie Beetz as the lucky mercenary Domino. Thankfully, Reynolds noted that the $52.4 billion merger hasn't affected the film's development, and that things are looking bright overall.
Recently, Reynolds said he very much doubts there will be a Deadpool 3. "So, I don't know, I would assume that it's just gonna be business as usual". While Deadpool 2's premiere date was pushed forward to May instead of June, other films like The New Mutants and X-Men: Dark Phoenix were pushed to 2019.
