David Leitch discusses X-Force in ‘Deadpool 2’, Jeff Wadlow bemoans his script not getting done

The latest trailer for Deadpool 2 confirmed that Wade Wilson will assemble X-Force and director David Leitch explained the story and what lies ahead for the famous comic book mutant team.

“Building a team in the classic style of all action movies, there’s great opportunity for conflict,” the Atomic Blonde director says, adding that while Wade Wilson struggles to get on with his fellow superheroes.

“…it’s not because he doesn’t want to. Maybe his fun, never-stop-talking personality is a little grating and people get tired of him. It’s not for lack of his good heart. At the end of the day, he wants to be a better person and do the right thing, and sometimes his thinking is flawed, like all of us.”

Truth or Dare director Jeff Wadlow was hired to pen a script for an X-Force film and explains why it’s not going to happen.

“I wrote a draft and they really liked it. They just reached a critical moment, where they were deciding whether they were going to make Deadpool or X-Force. I’ve always loved Deadpool and I tried to rehabilitate him in my X-Force movie because, like the rest of the fans, I felt like they totally screwed it up in X-Men: Origins. I had actually been talking to Ryan Reynolds about playing him in my X-Force movie, but my X-Force movie was much more focused on Cable and the New Mutants becoming this paramilitary unit. So, Fox was trying to decide whether they going to do the Deadpool solo movie or my X-Force movie. Fortunately, they picked the Deadpool solo movie because it’s great. Fortunately for the world, I should say, but unfortunately for me. But, I have no complaints about the process. I’m a huge fan of Ryan’s and I loved the Deadpool solo movie. I’m super excited for Deadpool 2. It’s a little bit of a bummer, but that’s life in the big leagues.”
