If it weren’t cool enough that Fox gave us an R-rated Deadpool as well as the forthcoming horror-themed New Mutants, the studio is now spinning the universe off into the hotly anticipated X-Force. Not only that, but Deadline is reporting that it will be directed by Cabin in the Woods‘ Drew Goddard (who also wrote Cloverfield and World War Z)!
The X-Men spinoff film revolves around Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and Cable (Josh Brolin) leading a Black Ops force of down and dirty mutant warriors who are far more ruthless than their X-Men counterparts.
The Fault in Our Stars helmer Josh Boone has completed the spinoff X-Men: New Mutants for release April 13, 2018. David Leitch wrapped Deadpool 2 for June 1, 2018, and the Kinberg-directed X-Men: Dark Phoenix gets released November 2, 2018.
If Logan is any indication of what’s going on over at Fox we’re in for one helluva 2018!
