For those of you who haven’t watched Deadpool 2 yet, don’t fret! This is a spoiler-free article. You know how we saw a part in the Deadpool 2 trailers when Deadpool “creates” the X-Force? They are a group of mutant individuals, such us Domino, Deadpool, and Shatterstar who resemble the X-Men – except with more blood and several curse words.
When asked where they would see this particular world go, Deadpool 2 screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick said in an interview with CBR:
[Well] I mean, the fun part of X-Force is that they are much more morally flexible than the X-Men so they can get their hands dirty a little bit, there’s a more gray area. It will be raunchier, it will be rated R, I’m sure. And so we’ll get to see an ensemble movie that’s pushed, hopefully, as far as the ‘Deadpool’ individual movie.
I guess that means that we can hopefully expect an X-Force movie soon! I can’t wait!
X-Force in the Comics
As said before, X-Force is mostly associated with X-Men, only a bit more… uh, R-rated. The team was created by illustrator/writer, Rob Liefield. They were first seen in the New Mutants Issue #100. The original team consisted of Cable, Domino, and a bit of Deadpool, as seen in the movie. It also consists of Boom Boom, Cannonball, Feral, Warpath, and Shatterstar.
The first X-Force was an ‘extension’ of New Mutants. In the comics, Cable is assigned as the new leader of the New Mutants. However, slowly but surely, he brings in more people and casts off the old members. In doing so, he basically creates a new team that’s ruthless and is able to do the things X-Men refuse to do.
