Reynolds, Singer Talk X-Force, Quicksilver

“Deadpool” actor Ryan Reynolds spoke with German outlet Filmstarts this week about the potential appearance of his titular character in the “X-Men” franchise moving forward. Reynolds indicates there’s plenty of opportunity for more “X-Men” crossover elements if further “Deadpool” sequels take place:

“There’s so much material to mine in just the X-Men universe … In the future, if we’re doing a bunch more Deadpool movies, we’re really going to explore the X-Men a lot. We’ll see. And maybe X-Force – X-Force is my priority. I really want to get that in.”

The current “X-Force” movie remains stuck in development hell despite Jeff Wadlow having been hired to pen the script two years ago. Reynolds has previously teased the possibility of including Cable in a “Deadpool” sequel.

In related news, “X-Men: Apocalypse” director Bryan Singer has posted an Instagram post from the sequence in the upcoming film that features speedster Quicksilver (Evan Peters).

The character’s appearance stole the show in 2014’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and Singer indicates this will be no different – his three minute sequence taking around six to seven weeks to film. We’ll see the fruits of that labor when the film opens in May.
