Now that the X-Men are experiencing something of a resurgence thanks to X-Men: Apocalypse, the logical next step is an in-universe crossover, right? While I continually forget that Deadpool, technically, counts as a movie within the X-Men universe thanks to its supporting cast (and Mr. Pool does show up at the X-Mansion too, after all!), there have been rumblings amongst the studios about not only making a potential Spideypool crossover (Spider-Man/Deadpool), but also finding a way to formally reintegrate Deadpool back into the X-Men world.
It’s definitely not just the fans and the film’s directors who are pumped up about the idea; some of the actors are voicing their approval about going the crossover route. In a recent interview with USA Today, Apocalypse cast member Olivia Munn, who plays the deadly assassin Psylocke, said she wants to reunite with her buddy Ryan Reynolds to do an X-Force movie:
That would be a really cool thing to do. What he did with Deadpool was genius and I’m so excited for him. It would definitely be cool to see Deadpool and some of the other X-Men characters gather for an X-Force movie. I think that’s what the whole world is coming to — everybody unites together, right? It’s never just one character anymore. We all just become one movie.
An X-Force movie would be the latest addition to the universes that have already done superhero team-up films–Marvel gave us the Avengers, DC is going to be giving us the Justice League and the Suicide Squad–so really, at this point it makes sense. All these stories become so intertwined that you can’t confine them to their own films forever–eventually, everyone has to come together.
(Besides, we already got a sneak peek at what a potential showdown between Psylocke and Deadpool would look like.)
If we do get an X-Force movie, which characters have to show up? Who are your dealbreakers and who would you be okay with if they got skipped over?
