Drew Goddard Signs on to Write and Direct X-FORCE Film Featuring Deadpool

Posted on September 7, 2017 at 2:35 pm by David "Snackbar" Edmundson

Fox has announced today that Drew Goddard (Marvel’s Daredevil) has been tapped to both write and direct the Deadpool spinoff X-Force. According to Deadline, the movie focuses on a Black Ops force of “down and dirty” mutant warriors, led by Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and Cable (the latter of whom will be introduced in the soon to come Deadpool 2, and is portrayed by Josh Brolin).

The X-Force comic team has fluctuated over the years, but famous mutants like Psylocke, Archangel, and even Wolverine have been members over the years. Fox does own those characters, but whether they’ll appear in X-Force remains to be seen. Fox was hesitant to loan their characters to Deadpool, but the tremendous success of that film is sure to give the suits at Fox reason enough to expand the roster.
