The box office has yet to open for 20th Century Fox's Deadpool movie, but its star Ryan Reynolds is already riding high on buzz and looking forward to what's next for the Merc with a Mouth. In an interview with Filmstarts, Reynolds revealed some ambitious plans for upcoming movies that include the X-Men, and more urgently, X-Force.
“In the future I think, if we’re doing a bunch more Deadpool movies, we’re going to really explore the X-Men a lot, and maybe X-Force,” said Reynolds. “X-Force is really my priority. I really want to get that in.”
