Los Angeles - Simon Kinberg says a Deadpool sequel is possible with Cable joining the franchise.
The producer of the first ever R-rated Marvel Comics superhero film Deadpool - which stars Ryan Reynolds in the titular role as the wise-cracking character - wants another film to be made following the success of the new film, which has just hit cinemas.
Kinberg thinks addition of the time-travelling mutant Cable - Deadpool's friend and foe in the comic books - would be perfect for another movie which could focus on alternative X-Men squad the X-Force.
Speaking during a Q&A at Collider's exclusive IMAX screening of Deadpool, Kinberg - who has produced many of the X-Men movies - said: "I think there are some stories that could be R-rated. I don't know what they are, I mean I think the mainline X-Men movies have their own tone, which is a more operatic tone. It's more dramatic, it is more PG-13 in a way. X-Force I could see being R-rated, and who knows?"Reynolds has previously admitted making an X-Force movie is his number one "priority".
The 39-year-old actor's dream would be to bring Marvel Comics' militant mutant superhero squad X-Force, which has at times featured Wolverine, Psylocke and Colossus among many other characters, to the big screen.
He said: "In the future, if we're doing a bunch more Deadpool movies, we're really going to explore the X-Men a lot. And maybe X-Force. X-Force is my priority. I really want to get that in."
Deadpool has a long history with X Force, having first appeared in their original Marvel comic book series New Mutants from 1991.
Tim Miller, the director of Deadpool, has pulled out of the sequel because of creative differences with Ryan Reynolds, according to a report. Read More »
