20th Century Fox has hired Daredevil Season 1 showrunner, Drew Goddard as the writer and director of X-Force according to Deadline. The film will focus on “a Black Ops force of down and dirty mutant warriors who are far more ruthless than their X-Men counterparts.” Also confirmed to return for X-Force obviously Josh Brolin as Cable and Ryan Reynolds portraying Deadpool. There was no mention of Zazie Beetz reprising her role as Domino, but we can’t imagine her not coming back.
Reynolds will serve as a Producers on the project along with X-Men: Dark Pheonix director Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner. This is great news if you’re a fan of Goddard’s work like we are. It’s been a long time coming for him to take the reigns of a big superhero franchise so this is great news!
We’ll have more on this as it develops.
