Celebrated producer Simon Kinberg known for his association with the X-Men film franchise, reveals his plan regarding the X-Men franchise after it hinted at a possible end with the last Hugh Jackman movie as Wolverine.
The producer now confirms that there are plans to introduce a new series titled as X-Force replacing the X-Men and it will have Deadpool and Cable in charge of the proceedings like Charles Xavier and Magneto were in X-Men.
"We are working hard on new mutants, 'Gambit (2018)' with Channing Tatum, 'Deadpool 2' and the new 'X-Force' movie where Deadpool is alongside Cable and other main characters. 'Deadpool 2' is going into production this year," stated Kinberg.
"Then 'X-Force' which is a combination of Deadpool and Cable - they're like the Black ops of the 'X-Men'. They're much darker and have an R-rated decibel. There are other 'X-Men' characters coming into 'X-Force' at different times in the comic, but it's separate from 'X-Men'," he added.
"It's something that's fun, exciting and it will be interesting to see how we marry the different tones that we've been generating in these standalone movies of the 'X-Men' universe," said the producer.
"But we go into making the best movie we can. It's not just about a Colossus or Deadpool cameo. Connecting all of these movies will happen when it organically makes sense. These movies aren't simply being built as stepping stones to a larger story." Kinberg added further.
