Simon Kinberg Says He "Could See" An R-Rated X-FORCE MOVIE Following DEADPOOL's Success

Simon Kinberg Says He "Could See" An R-Rated X-FORCE MOVIE Following DEADPOOL's Success

Not that this is currently the plan, but the Deadpool producer does seem to think that the tone of an X-Force film could benefit from the more adult rating. More past the jump...

After the unprecedented success Deadpool has enjoyed since it released this past weekend, it was inevitable that fans were going to assume this would pave the way for more R-rated superhero movies - particularly based in Fox's X-Men Universe. This may very well be the case, but the fact remains that not every character would benefit from this in the same way the Merc With A Mouth Did.

Wolverine? Possibly - but with Logan already successfully established in a PG-13 continuity, it's very unlikely the studio would change things up. There is one team-based movie in the works (or at least, it was until very recently) that could work very well with a bit more violence and profanity thrown in, however.

After their IMAX screening of Deadpool, Collider asked producer Simon Kinberg if he envisioned any other "specific properties" being rated R down the line. "I think there are some stories that could be R-rated," he responded. "I don’t know what they are, I mean I think the mainline X-Men movies have their own tone, which is a more operatic tone. It’s more dramatic, it is more PG-13 in a way. X-Force I could see being R-rated, and who knows?" Kinberg is quick to clarify that this doesn't mean the film will be Rated R, just that he could see it working. It makes sense of course, as Wade Wilson would likely be on the team, possibly along with the likes of Colossus, Archangel, Psylocke, and Cable who we now know will be introduced in the Deadpool sequel.

Director Jeff Wadlow was on board the X-Force movie at one point but it seems to have slipped off Fox's radar for the time being. If they do get back on track, would you like to see it rated R? Do I even need to ask that question?

I dont know if to say horrah, or boo.
its a great day for superheroes who need that tone, but hopefully kinberg is not involved.
Coleco84 - 2/15/2016, 12:50 PM
@RandalCabbage - Kinberg was involved with Deadpool
neodymium - 2/15/2016, 4:03 PM
@Rukawa1984 - ad a producer. Not a writer. And I hope hr stays away after neutering the x men characters and centering all their stories around Mystique Wolverine and magneto. Smh
xinstituto - 2/15/2016, 4:51 PM
@neodymium - As a producer, so what? Is Deadpool script that great? What makes the movie great is a whole team work.
Gusto - 2/15/2016, 11:53 AM


Better [frick]ing have Cannonball!!!!!!!
slickrickdesigns - 2/15/2016, 11:56 AM
@Gusto - F Cannonball... I want to see Shatter Star.
MiopTop - 2/15/2016, 12:06 PM
@Gusto - but we've got Negasonic who's got basically the same powers.
Gusto - 2/15/2016, 12:08 PM
@MiopTop - I haven't seen DP yet.
Probably going Weds.
DallasAvenger - 2/15/2016, 12:26 PM
@Gusto - Wouldn't Cannonball be the natural star of the New Mutants movie they are making?
Gusto - 2/15/2016, 12:36 PM


I'd hope he would be!
Nomis - 2/15/2016, 1:01 PM
@Gusto - What about the doctor from CANNONBALL RUN?

Gusto - 2/15/2016, 1:13 PM


LMFAO!!!!!!!!!
TheRealRemyLebeau - 2/15/2016, 1:58 PM

@slickrickdesigns - @gusto you're both wrong, Warpath!!
slickrickdesigns - 2/15/2016, 2:18 PM
@leethario - Warpath yes, but we saw him in DOFP... Make sure we have Shatter Star, Domino, Boomer, Warpath, Feral, Cable and Deadpool... and F it... Cannonball for oldman Gus
TheEpicJuicebox - 2/15/2016, 11:53 AM
Yes do that and get Matthew Vaughn to direct it with the lineup I've been pushing being deadpool archangel wolverine psyloche and Fantomex save Cable for deadpool 2
Coleco84 - 2/15/2016, 12:50 PM
@TheEpicJuicebox - Nah, gave it to Miller, Vaugh should direct the next X-Men flick
joppida - 2/15/2016, 12:51 PM
@TheEpicJuicebox - yeah dude
I want the Remender team so bad for the film

You could maybe do the apocalypse solution story depending on what goes down in Xmen Apocalypse
TheRealRemyLebeau - 2/15/2016, 1:36 PM
@TheEpicJuicebox - No.....original team going against Stryfe. What you guys fail to understand is that fox has not dug deep into the characters they have. You ask for repeated characters beside fantomex and cable. We need the original team.
TheEpicJuicebox - 2/15/2016, 3:56 PM
@TheRealRemyLebeau - That is true, I just really want to see deadpool and wolverine together in a movie. Plus Fantomex has always been one of my favorite mutants
@joppida yeah the only issue with the lineup I want is that archangel and Psylocke are in a completely different time period from the rest but hey with cable they could always use time travel
Rukawa1984 If Miller directed an Xforce movie it would be a spectacle to see. But yes Vaugh needs to take over the main Xmen movies. Heck if he did we'd probably get some comic accurate costumes
slickrickdesigns - 2/15/2016, 11:55 AM
I hope its rated R if its due to violence... Don't do it just to throw a tittle on screen... and don't get me wrong, i'm all for titties.
MiopTop - 2/15/2016, 12:07 PM
@slickrickdesigns - if they bother making it R-rated, they'll probably take advantage of it fully
Scorpion8125 - 2/15/2016, 12:14 PM
@slickrickdesigns

Do we like boobsalot?

Yes we like boobsalot.

Effusion - 2/15/2016, 11:58 AM
[frick] yeah! More r-rated cbm's is greatly appreciated.
sickboy76 - 2/15/2016, 12:02 PM
@Effusion - but only if they're good, James gunn summed it up earlier. Studios will see r rated comic book movies =$ when it's not the case. Deadpool is so successful because we've waited forever to see it.
Prime - 2/15/2016, 11:59 AM
[frick]ing loved the movie. You guys know that that was supposed to be the Helcarrier at the end fight? Also loved that he made a MCU joke.
TheNerdGuy - 2/15/2016, 12:00 PM
The fact that asshole parents said OK to their kids watching Deadpool means you can make any R rated superhero film and it will make money.

The fear is over with.
mutantsoldier - 2/15/2016, 12:06 PM
@TheNerdGuy - is not that they let them watch it, is more like taking them to the theater and ruin the fun for everyone. I don't care if they let them watch it at home.
TheNerdGuy - 2/15/2016, 12:27 PM
@mutantsoldier - I agree with that.

An R rated movie should be watched at home with your children if you feel comfortable watching it with them. Horror movies, action, anything related.

My fiances friends son wants to see the film because he is a masked superhero and it involves superhero characters, but she flat out said NO. Again, it is best to share this movie at home without being looked at strange or weird for bring a kid below the age of 13 to watch the movie.

Then you turn around the corner their parents bitching about its content SMDH
PHOENIXTAYLOR - 2/15/2016, 1:28 PM
@TheNerdGuy - agree, but why are they assholes?
and if DEADPOOL is in it, it has to be R, and technically you cant actually make wolverine fight in a movie realistically, without an R rating.

seriously. He slices people into loaves. arms, faces, chest
TheNerdGuy - 2/16/2016, 3:59 AM
@PHOENIXTAYLOR - Sorry not assholes, NOT VERY GOOD PARENTS. Those parents that took their kids to see cry out over how movies today are incredibly violent and that their kids should not play games like GTAV or Call of Duty, but are talked into going to see Deadpool.

Like I can't imagine the conversation after the movie with these kids, like seriously. I guess you can say it would be best if this type of movie was viewed at home rather than a theater, but hey DO WHATEVER, AMERICA I GUESS *sarcasm*

I don't care if an X-Men movie is R rated, I will still see it, even then it would be hard to get my son into X-Men period because of the themes and gritty nature of it. Yea they got cool super-powers, but its much more closer to an adult thriller film than an actual superhero film.
sickboy76 - 2/15/2016, 12:00 PM
Kinberg needs a win after the last film he wrote and produced right? Deadpool was so good because its a labour of love, kinberg will try and shoe horn him into everything wolverine style and this is the first fox film made by fans for the fans.
ThedamnBatman - 2/15/2016, 12:00 PM
I really hope the last Wolverine Huge J. is making is gonna be rated R now, Wolverine needs the R-Ratig man, AND THE DAMN COSTUME!
TheRealRemyLebeau - 2/15/2016, 1:29 PM
@aXe - Reboot Wolverine. It's too late for Jackman due to Fox's incompetent hands.
Typhoon20 - 2/15/2016, 2:14 PM
@TheRealRemyLebeau - Reboot Wolverine under Fox ? You think if they don't give Jackmans last Wolvie movie an R rating that they'll do it for the reboot ?
TheRealRemyLebeau - 2/15/2016, 3:08 PM
@Typhoon20 - Yes if Fox is smart with the right people in charge.
dcnoob122 - 2/15/2016, 12:01 PM
Yes!!!!! Don't let Jeff Wadlow direct it. Was not a fan of Kickass 2....
ThedamnBatman - 2/15/2016, 12:03 PM
AND THE DAMN COSTUME!
xXkryptoniteXx - 2/15/2016, 12:04 PM
R rated movie doesn't mean nothing so as long as the movie has story and done well. Looking at you Punisher Warzone.

The marketing on this movie was just great from the start.
