FEATURE: Mutants We Want To See In Future ‘Deadpool’, ‘X-Force’ and ‘Cable’ Movies

Aug 23, 2016



Deadpool being such a huge success for 20th Century Fox has lead to the fast-tracking of it’s sequel and the casting of his partner Cable. Leading to a potential solo franchise for Cable,  along with X-Force films on the horizon. Given that these are mostly going to be R-rated films they likely won’t be including a lot of mainstream X-Men characters, not to confuse general audiences.

As we’ve seen with Colossus, Tim Miller isn’t afraid to reboot Singer’s characters and we could see him overhaul more established mutants in the future.

Here are a bunch of X-Men characters (some very obscure) we’d like to see included into the Deadpool universe and who should play them.

A lot of these characters won’t likely be used in things like the mainstream X-Men films along with New Mutants. But, it’s possible we could be seeing some of the characters I’ve listed in upcoming films like Wolverine 3 or Gambit and could easily crossover into the Deadpool, Cable and X-Force movies.

  • Charlie-Cluster 7 aka Fantomex
