Simon Kinberg On Bringing X-MEN To The Small Screen And An R-Rated Deadpool Movie
Despite FOX apparently trying for the past few years to bring Deadpool to the big screen, and turning down Rhett Reese And Paul Wernick's script, Simon Kinberg seems to think it's a good idea to give it a shot, as long with making a TV Series based on the X-Men.
Now that Marvel Studios, Sony, and Warner Bros are all going big with their superhero films, it is time for FOX to step up their game as well. And one of the many ways they expand their universe is with more spin offs and other movies, such as the third Wolverine movie or X-Men: Apocalypse. In an interview with Collider, Simon Kinberg (who has been in many interviews lately) was asked on the possibility of moving into television just like Marvel Studios did with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and will soon do again with Agent Carter. “We’re still in this place of figuring out what the future of the franchise will be, but when you look at S.H.I.E.L.D. to some extent and what Marvel is doing now with Daredevil and other shows on Netflix, it makes sense to tell some of these stories in TV partly because there’s just not enough screens to do all these characters, and also because the serialized format of comic books is better suited for TV. Because that’s it, every week you come back to the same characters different story, and in comic books every week it’s the same characters, different story. I think what [Fox is] seeing now is with the proliferation of new kinds of visual and special effects, there’s a way to make these stories that doesn’t cost $300 million every time you have to make a huge movie.” Along with making more sequels and going into television, many fans are anxious to see Deadpool given a proper chance on the big screen with his own film, preferably an R-Rated film. When asked on the possibility of his own film, Kinberg said “Yeah, it makes sense to me. Genuinely it’s early phases, early days, but if you’re gonna do a Deadpool movie, I think you’ve gotta do a hard-R, darker movie and he is the perfect character to do it with.” What do you think the best way for FOX to expand their X-Men universe is?
