Cable and Deadpool will play a major role in the future of the X-Men franchise, according to writer/producer Simon Kinberg.
Kinberg has been working on the X-Men franchise since X-Men: The Last Stand in 2006, and he may direct the upcoming sequel to X-Men: Apocalypse. Speaking to Deadline about the future of the franchise, he confirmed that Cable and Deadpool will headline an X-Force movie, described as “the black ops of the X-Men.”
Cable is due to appear in Deadpool 2, although the role hasn’t been cast yet. X-Force will be a team action movie, almost certainly with an R-rating like Deadpool and Logan.
As for the rest of the franchise, Kinberg made it clear that Gambit is still in the works with Channing Tatum. So, as well as the next X-Men sequel (an adaptation of the Dark Phoenix Saga, starring Sophie Turner as Jean Grey), we’re looking at four spinoffs in the same universe: New Mutants, Gambit, Deadpool 2, and X-Force.
After Logan, many fans are probably wondering if Laura (aka X-23) will get her own spinoff. Kinberg didn’t discuss this during the interview, but we do know that actress Dafne Keen and Logan director James Mangold are both in favor of making an X-23 movie.
