JEFF WADLOW TALKS ABOUT HIS ORIGINAL PLAN FOR FOX’S X-FORCE TRILOGY

In a galaxy far, far, away there was a time when Jeff Wadlow (Fantasy Island) was going to bring together the X-Force in a live action movie with 20th century Fox. But during the time that the project was in development, DEADPOOL 2 arrived on the scene and introduced Cable (Josh Brolin) before Wadlow had the chance to Fox was acquired by Disney, who promptly pumped the breaks on just about every Marvel project the studio had in the works.

It’s still unknown what will happen with X-FORCE under Disney’s banner, but Jeff Waldo spoke with ComicBookMovie.com and told them about some of his plans for what would have been an X-Force trilogy. He told the source this “What I can share about my take on the property (as it’s not really relevant any more since Deadpool 2 introduced Cable, and I wrote X-Force before Deadpool 1 even came out), is that it asked if X-Men was about mutants who get to go to private school with Wolverine and Professor X, and have the Blackbird swooping down to pick them up, what about the mutants that have to go to public school? What about the ones who don’t have the benefactor looking out for them, and what about the kids who have to figure it out on their own? We then would have introduced that darker, more militant mentor in the form of Cable.”
