It looks like Deadpool and Cable fans have an exciting time ahead…

The Martian and Daredevil scribe Drew Goddard has signed on to write the X-Force movie for 20th Centrury Fox along with Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds and Lauren Shuler Donner producing.

The movie will focus on a Black Ops team who are separate from the X-Men and will feature Reynolds as Deadpool and Josh Brolin as Cable. We’ll see Brolin in the role in Deadpool 2 next year.

In addition to this, X-Men fans will be glad to hear that reports indicate that filming has wrapped on David Leitch’s Deadpool 2 and also Josh Boone’s New Mutants movie; both are scheduled for release on April 13th and June 1st next year, respectively. We’ll get a third movie in the franchise, X-men: Dark Phoenix, directed by Simon Kinberg, on November 2nd.

Busy year for X-Men, then…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
