“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.
You can have fast or cute. Thank you @20thcenturyfox marketing #marcweinstock #davesingh #elyorias and the team for getting us on #superbowl50 #nfl #fox#football #XMen #xmenapocalypse FYI this scene with #evanpeters as #quicksilver took one and a half months for a less than 3 minute sequence resulting in Evan working longer than any other actor on the film. Thanks Evan and #ryanmurphy @ahsfx for accommodating!
