Well, that didn’t take very long.
Just a few days after Deadpool’s record-breaking haul at the box-office (the biggest opening for a video released in Feb, the biggest opening for the R-rated film, the biggest starting weekend in Last century Fox history and the most important opening of any X-Men movie), studios are already changing to the massive success of the R-rated superhero film as well as adjusting accordingly. X-Men along with Deadpool producer Simon Kinberg has said that although he doesn’t notice the X-Men universe changing significantly after Deadpool’s good results, he said he could possibly definitely see one more mutant-oriented superhero film obtaining an R-rating.
Kinberg told Collider at the post-screening Q&A of Deadpool, “X-Force I saw being R-rated.” As if he could immediately perception his quote would definitely spread far and wide over the internet, Kinberg clarified, “I’michael saying I could imagine a new universe in which [X-Force is actually R-rated].” Yes, but when you’re the producer of the X-Force film, it’s your creativeness that makes these things transpire.
Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds said that an X-Force movie is his “priority” and now that he’s the new golden son at Fox, you could expect that priority being coming sooner rather than later. First up, though, would be Deadpool 2, which includes already gotten the greenlight and, according Mr. Pool himself in the post-credits scene, will include Cable connection, the leader of The X-Force.
Interestingly ample, Deadpool was originally not really part of Fox’s options for the X-Force movie. The particular studio was making a project with movie director Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2) and a choice that included Wire, Domino, Feral, Cannonball and Warpath. But with a $135 million cracking open under his gear, you can bet Deadpool are going to be the star of this movie.
If Fox at some point does decide to progress with an R-rated X-Force film, you may bet it probably won’t be the last of which. There have already been rumblings which Warner Bros. may be looking to add additional footage to Suicide Squad, actually shot as a PG-13 motion picture, to get that special R-rating.
