Drew Goddard To Direct Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin In 'X-Force'

Drew Goddard To Direct Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin In 'X-Force'”

What do you think of an X-Force movie? Deadline is reporting that Drew Goddard is taking over the film as both director and writer.

If the film is half as twisted and dramatic as its development, it's going to be a lot of fun.

Last year's #Deadpool proved that there's more to the #XMen franchise than the tentpole films, and Fox has since been working hard on adding diversity to the slate. Said movie comes of course after "Deadpool 2", continuing the story of Fox's very own Marvel Universe on film, centered on the X-Men and all mutant characters.

This has led to a rivalry of sorts between MCU and X-Men on Fox, due to legalese preventing Marvel from regaining the X-Film rights as long as Fox keeps making new movies. And then good, it should be noted that Deadpool 2 is finished, so it in cinemas and make a new box to really allow X-Force to take to the skies.

Goddard has already written June 2018's Deadpool 2, which has David Leitch of John Wick and Atomic Blonde in the director's chair, features several returning characters from its 2016 predecessor, and introduces Brolin as Cable. Deadpool wasn't included in the art, which was the first indication that it may have come from an early draft of the script.

In the comics, "X-Force" was a band of mutants put together by Cable with the specific goal of seeking out and destroying mutant terror groups. Unlike the X-Men, who wanted to protect humanity from rogue mutants, X-Force was an aggressive unit who sought out mutant terror cells such as the Mutant Liberation Front. We're getting 3 in 2018 alone: David Leitch's (John Wick, Atomic Blonde) Deadpool 2 is now in post-production, set for USA release on June 1, 2018; Josh Boone's (The Fault in Our Stars) X-Men: New Mutants is scheduled to open in the U.S on April 13, 2018; and Simon Kinberg's (writer on X-Men: Days of Future Past & X-Men: Apocalypse) X-Men: Dark Phoenix will hit USA cinemas on November 2, 2018. [Deadpool 2's] goal is not to set up X-Force.
