Deadpool sequel to feature Cable

2016-02-17 22:00

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.
