After confirmation by Fox and Mark Millar, it appears that a X-Force movie is in the works. Slash Film has revealed some interesting details regarding where Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2) stands on the project. Wadlow reveals that "I love the current incarnation, UNCANNY X FORCE. I love what Rob did in the nineties", while Mark Millar states that the film will feature " People are going to be dissecting every name as it gets released, so it’s will be so cool when you have your five. ". With Deadpool and Cable being must haves to the film, who do you guys think will fill the remaining spots on the X-Force roster? Now, I have been hearing an interesting rumour that states that Cyclops (played by James Marsden) will feature in the X-Force movie, now it's a Twitter rumour, so don't take it as fact... Yet.

This is the first time ever that I have heard somebody say they like Rob Liefeld's work.
BANEofExistence - 7/23/2013, 7:05 PM
So five members? Didn't Rob confirm Cable and Dwadpool? I could see Wolverine and I feel Domino and Cannonball would be neat.
JerBear - 7/23/2013, 7:09 PM
Deadpool please. Then spin him off into his own movie by the Zombieland guys.
JerBear - 7/23/2013, 7:10 PM
@CaptainObvious
lol

I not sure if gambit was ever a part of x-force, but I hope he in the movie.

Another great find from Khan, well done. I wonder why you're not a Trusted User yet.

You can't leave an article in this state for over an hour.
Ramiel - 7/23/2013, 7:36 PM
Cable, Deadpool, Domino, Nightcrawler, and...Wolverine.
NovaCorpsFan - 7/23/2013, 7:49 PM
Fix your grammar! You're using "a" where it should be "an".
ATrueHero1987 - 7/23/2013, 7:52 PM
When was Cable & Deadpool confirmed??
Praetorian - 7/23/2013, 8:09 PM
Domino, X-23 hopefully, maybe Wolverine to connect it to the modern continuity but you know: the old Wolverine with the grey streaks, and Omar Sy's return as Bishop hopefully. Although how can Cable exist when Cyclops is dead?
jambabeanjuice - 7/23/2013, 8:09 PM
This is cool but it's fox.. Just have to wait and see.

probably Domino, Wolverine (because cash cow. That's why) and let's say...Warpath, since he's being introduced in DOFP
CaptainAmerica - 7/23/2013, 8:17 PM
Lol @ the editors feeling threatened by Khan.
CaptainAmerica - 7/23/2013, 8:20 PM
Wolverine, Cable, Deadpool, Domino, and Warpath. Secretly lead by Cyclops :] That would be my team.
gamecreatorjj - 7/23/2013, 8:25 PM
Im happy this is moving forward, I thought it wouldn't get past an announcement, this is probably how they'll keep the wolverine property (and rights, without doing solely solo films
gamecreatorjj - 7/23/2013, 8:26 PM
Oh and I'm hoping for Wolverine, Deadpool, Psylocke, Warpath, and Cable (or domino)
TheRationalNerd - 7/23/2013, 8:28 PM
I've never read an X-Force comic a day in my life! I'm just reading all the names you all are placing and best believe I'm taking huge notes! lol

I remember Domino in the Maximum Carnage story arc and also seeing her in the Wolverine and the X-Men animated series.

I only know that X23 is basically the next successful experiment made after wolverine if I'm correct?

Cable seems very interesting! Always remember seeing him in the cartoon and some of my pops old comics. I also know that he is the son of Cyclops. So I'm assuming this film will take place in the future?

Deadpool is already on the to go list for me!

Totally pumped to see what comes next after DOFP! I'll be checking out all the updates for this film!
BANE5000 - 7/23/2013, 8:33 PM
I just remembered...Wasnt FOX supposed to have some kind of " Big Surprise " for their panel Comic-Con...Did they even do that?
Giznad - 7/23/2013, 8:33 PM
I thought Shatterstar was kinda cool.
Giznad - 7/23/2013, 8:36 PM
@Bane5000, I thought they said it was supposed to be a week after Comic Con. I'm assuming this has something to do with Wolvie.
Minato - 7/23/2013, 8:37 PM
Cable, Deadpool, Psylocke, Domino, Fantomex
CaptainObvious - 7/23/2013, 8:38 PM
@BANE5000- It was the X-Men: Days of Future Past panel. I was there. They said that was the surprise.
CharlieKelly - 7/23/2013, 8:43 PM
Wow, Mark, what a douchey comment.
CharlesLord - 7/23/2013, 8:44 PM
theyre obviously gonna go wit the Wolverine led line up. Theyre gonna milk that cow.
SugarYumYum - 7/23/2013, 8:46 PM
All I need are Cyclops and Deadpool.
TonyChu - 7/23/2013, 8:47 PM
Wolverine, Deadpool, Psylocke, Cable, Fantomex, and Forge.
PeterDarker - 7/23/2013, 8:47 PM
Wade. all I care about is Wade. Just give me Wade.
GliderMan - 7/23/2013, 8:48 PM
Cyclops and Deadpool!
Minato - 7/23/2013, 8:49 PM
Please no Wolverine Please
I understand he makes money but you would be doing the same thing DC is doing by saying they cannot make a successful movie without Supes or Bats. I think the whole purpose in making X-Force should be to make some movies without Wolverine. Hes already attached to the X-Men team and they are not going to let him go.
breakneckbeck - 7/23/2013, 8:50 PM
I actually want Ryan Reynolds back. The one comic book character he should play and he was actually good for the 5 minutes that he was being deadpool. Dammit fox
tkiv18 - 7/23/2013, 8:51 PM
Wolverine, Cable, Domino, Deadpool, Fantonex
breakneckbeck - 7/23/2013, 8:51 PM
Also yeah Id love an x movie without Wolverine
TelaVizion - 7/23/2013, 8:52 PM
Cyclops is gone.. deal with it. Anyway, side note, The Wolverine is great. My only complaint is with Harada (but its a personal one I guess). Make sure you check out The Wolverine when it comes out Friday.

p.s. Hugh Jackman is cool in person
Jhuntdaprodigy - 7/23/2013, 8:57 PM
Cyclops, Cable, Deadpool, Wolverine, and Domino please.
KingSilence - 7/23/2013, 9:00 PM
We all know that Wolverine has been done, done and DONE. So his background is well known. But these other character's backgrounds are each so deep. I wonder how they could introduce these characters into one film. Honestly, I would prefer the studios assume their audience is already quite familiar, but that never happens. I mean DAMN look at Wolverine. They are making way too many movie about that guy. He's not that interesting to be spending this much screen time with him.
jphoenix666 - 7/23/2013, 9:02 PM
I'd want the original lineup but since FOX doesn't care about original lineups then Hopefully Fantomex & Psylocke make the top 5... & PLEASE.

NO WOLVERINE!

He has his own movies, hogged the spotlight for 3 X-Men movies. Make room for characters that have never had the silver screen treatment or get their proper movie treatment... I'm taking about you Psylocke.
AdamX - 7/23/2013, 9:05 PM
Screw deadpool and wolverine. If they throw deadpool in there he should be an assassin hired by the main villain then they can have 5 others in X-Force with Cable has the leader and using any of the others they can put on film. Then have Deadpool solo movie wioth him being recruited at the end for an X-Force sequal. Of course that won't happen tho and we will get a another crappy version of deapool who is already on the team. With the X-universe continuity all jacked up. X-force should be made up of most of the mutants that haven't been seen before.

Cable, Domino, Warpath, X23(Talon), maybe Vanisher or Cannonball.
