Deadpool Spinoff, X-Force Set To Begin Filming In Fall

We are getting the Merc with a Mouth’s sequel this May, the 4th installment of the next X-men generation in X-men: Dark Phoenix in December and then the New Mutants which have been pushed back to February of next year. But lets not forget Fox has one more X-men property lined up that many were not sure was going to go into production. That property being X-force and the reason being the potential Fox/Disney merger.

A new report claims that X-Force will start shooting this October. If that does turn out to be true that would mean it would finish filming before the Disney deal can go through. this would potentially give the X-Force a late 2019 release date. It’s not how long it would take to fully integrate the X-men universe into the MCU.

Now of course these are just reports and nothing is set in stone as of now. There is no certainty to the future of Ryan Reynolds in the fourth wall breaking, foul mouthed superhero role and Deadpool 2 would seem like the perfect lead in to X-Force. Also seeing Reynolds in his own giant team up would be a great way to go out if its his final film. Let us know your thoughts? Are you hyped for an X-Force film?

James Fraco To Play James Franco To Play James Franco In X-Men Universe’s Multiple Man

It seems that the X-Men universe is the best at finding busy actors for one off projects. Multiple sources today report that James Franco is in talks to play the mutant, Multiple Man, existing in the same world as Gambit, New Mutants, Deadpool, X-Force and of course, the X-Men. Cue the Eric Dane (played the role in X-Men: Last Stand) cameo in 3, 2, 1…

Multiple Man (real name, Jamie Madrox,) has the ability to not only clone himself instantly, but also send those clones of to be in different places, doing different things, with different people, all at the same time. His powers are usually controlled by a suit he wears to contain the kinetic energy that causes the instant cloning to happen. Franco and X-Men producer Simon Kinberg apparently created the idea while working on the Hardy Men, in which James and Dave Franco play the grown-up Hardy Boys. Yes, that already sounds perfect. Allan Heinberg (Wonder Woman) would write the script.

James Franco may need one of these suits as well. Along with the Hardy Men project, he just finished doing just about everything to make The Disaster Artist, played identical twins on HBO’s The Deuce (with a second season already confirmed,) and has no less than 12 other projects currently in some form of production. Are we sure he isn’t the Multiple Man already? Let’s hope he finds the time to send a clone over to get this done! Tell us what you think – comment or tweet us!
