X-FORCE Director Drew Goddard Comments On THAT Scene From DEADPOOL 2 - <font color=red>Spoilers</font> Follow

If you've seen Deadpool 2 you'll know that a certain scene could have major implications for Drew Goddard's X-Force movie, and in a new interview, the director shares his thoughts on what went down...

In one of Deadpool 2's most hilarious sequences, most of the members of the first incarnation of X-Force are wiped out in a matter of seconds, the only survivors being Domino and Wade Wilson himself.

Before the movie hit theaters, fans had assumed that the X-Force movie would focus on the characters that were introduced here, such as Shatterstar, Bedlam and Zeitgeist, but obviously that's not going to be the case. So, where does that leave Drew Goddard?

As it turns out, the director was well aware of the plan to kill-off proto-X-Force, and was 100% on board with it.


“To be honest, I think that’s why it excited me so much. I remember reading that scene and just cackling with delight, specifically because it was the very last thing you’d expect to happen in one of these movies. These movies are so careful to set up the next thing and the next thing, and it made me so happy.”

Goddard told Ryan Reynolds and co. to just go ahead and make the movie they wanted to make, and he'd figure out what to do with the mutant super-group further down the line. Though there will almost certainly be other characters joining the roster, the director confirms that the core members will be Deadpool, Domino and Cable.

“It really all stems from a place of love; I love those comics, I love Ryan, I love Josh, and I love Zazie Beetz. When I think of the comics, I think of Cable and Domino and Deadpool, and it’s really just knowing, ‘Oh, right, there’s a world in the X-Universe for the blunt instruments of mutantdom.’ It’s much more about the characters and my love for them than it is about any plot or story line. It’s more about loving them and wanting to see them bounce off each other.”

There are obviously a lot of Marvel Comics heroes that Goddard could choose to utilize for the X-Force movie, including some that have already appeared in earlier X-Men films such as Psylocke and Archangel. Of course, this being Fox, they'd most likely be recast!
