Lauren Shuler Donner On The Future Of ‘Deadpool’ and The Rest Of Fox’s ‘X-Men’ Franchises Under Disney

Deadpool 2 Trailer

Last year, the Department of Justice approved The Walt Disney Company’s $71 billion offer to acquire Fox’s entertainment assets, including television and film properties. The news was a cause for celebration for Marvel fans as the move meant that X-Men and Fantastic Four characters would finally be able to play in the Marvel Studios sandbox.

However, this also meant that the current X-Men franchise, including its many spinoffs like Deadpool and the yet-to-be-released The New Mutants, was in serious jeopardy of no longer continuing or being rebooted. Deadpool, a raunchy superhero with a debaucherous behavior, doesn’t quite fit into what Disney has done with the MCU and the family friendly films they release.

Long-time X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner spoke about passing the franchise to their new owners, Disney. She also addressed its future, as well as the future of Deadpool and when The New Mutants will be released. More on the report below.

Drew Goddard

Following the success of Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds teased the idea of getting an X-Force film off the ground. The film would follow a black-ops team of mutants, led by the time-traveling Cable, that would take a more proactive stance against threats to mutantkind. Recently, it was confirmed that Joe Carnahan (Smokin’ Aces) would pen the script. But that still left the film without a director.

Now there’s word that Fox has tapped Drew Goddard, writer of films like Cloverfield and Deadpool 2, to write and direct X-Force. More on the story below.

The success of Deadpool proved that R-rated comic book movies could work. So in light of its success, Fox is following it up with Logan and a Deadpool sequel. The former is set to hit theaters next week, while the latter is still in the early stages of writing.

But one film Ryan Reynolds would very much like to see happen is X-Force. The actor has spoken about his interest in bringing the title to the big screen in the past. Now it’s being reported that Joe Carnahan is writing the script, so it looks like we are that much closer to it being a reality. More on the story below.

20th Century Fox’s X-Men Film Franchise At A Crossroads, May Be Headed Towards A Reboot

Hugh Jackman ad Wolverine In X-Men: Days Of Future Past

20th Century Fox’s X-Men film franchise has been fairly successful, grossing over $4 billion dollars since they acquired the rights to the characters in the 1990s. Despite Deadpool performing well beyond anyone’s expectations, X-Men: Apocalypse had a poor box office showing, and many of the cast’s contracts are or are about to expire. That’s not all. Deadpool 2 is currently looking for a director. And if that wasn’t bad enough, Gambit is still in a production stall.

While the studio will release Logan next year, what comes next for the franchise is still very much in the air. Which is why, according to a new report, Fox is considering giving the X-Men another reboot. Check out the full story below.

Ryan Reynolds Wants X-Force Movie

Deadpool is finally arriving in theaters this Friday. And it’s not a PG-13 family friendly version we will be seeing, nor will it be the softer toned-down version we saw in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. No, the film, based on early screening reactions and our own review, is the Deadpool that we have been waiting to see. Much of Fox’s X-Men film franchise has been focused on the titular mutants, with Wolverine getting a good amount of the attention and even a couple of spinoffs. A film based on the Merc with a Mouth will be the first time that Fox has expanded the X-Men film universe beyond Wolverine, and based on strong reviews and a strong show of support from fans, it looks like we may see many more in the future.

With the X-Men franchise continuing to expand and its film universe’s timeline reset thanks to the events of Days of Futures Past, which means that there will be even more stories to work with, and perhaps new teams to introduce. One of those teams Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds would like to see is X-Force, in fact he is making it his priority. More on the story below.

Early Look: ‘Uncanny X-Force #14’ Continues The Dark Angel Saga

X-Force 14 Cover

Opinions vary a great deal when it comes to the quality of the mutant books in the Marvel Universe these days. Rick Remender, Jerome Opeña, and Dean White are working together to craft some real drama and excitement in an X book that isn’t X-Men; it’s an X-Force series. The story arc title, Dark Angel, is purposefully misleading. When old school X heads hear Dark Angel they think Dark Phoenix, but this story focuses on Archangel.

Uncanny X-Force #14 finds the team trying to save Archangel from completely losing his soul to evil. We have some early pages from the issue for you to check out, but be warned there are potential story spoilers in these pages so check out the art at your own risk.

I don’t know about you, but I’m a little tired of only hearing about DC after the last week and a half, so Marvel has seen fit to release a bit of news themselves. Unfortunately, it’s not necessarily the kind of news I want to hear.

On Thursday, Marvel revealed that they would be ending one of their flagship titles when Uncanny X-Men comes to an end in October with issue #544. The issue will be written by Kieron Gillen with art by Greg Land and will tie into whatever happens in the upcoming X-Men: Schism event.

The solicitation for the issue reads like this…
