X-Force Movie! [Aug. 28th, 2013|04:14 pm]
Cable x Deadpool


Oh sweet lordikins, have you lot heard about this yet?! Supposedly, there's gonna be an X-Force movie, with Cable's original team. And...*drumroll* DEADPOOL'S GONNA BE IN IT! :D

I've heard the idea being thrown around before, but it's sounding a lot closer to actual production than it's ever been before. I'm mostly going, "okay, an X-Force movie, but what does that even mean?" The X-Force team has a huge long convoluted history with so many different incarnations - mostly offshoots of a massive, sprawling family of X-Men teams with a scale and history hugely bigger than anything the movie-verse has ever even hinted at - with a membership ranging from the mansion's youngest students to cold-blooded former villains. Cable himself has a huge long convoluted history, which is only going to get more convoluted trying to squeeze him into the movie-verse where his parents both died before he was ever born. I'd really doubt we're going to see any of the original X-Force team - they've got too much backstory and too little iconic value for there to be much sense in using them. In other articles I found on a quick google search, the writer talks about X-Force being about "mutants who didn't make it to the mansion", which sounds more like a story about the Morlocks than any existing incarnation of the team, and also about loving the Uncanny X-Force incarnation of the team, which doesn't involve Cable at all.

As of now, I really have no idea whether to get excited about this movie, because I've got no idea how they're going to try to make it work. /o\

Hmm, when you put it like that, I can see why reactions to the movie annoucement are somewhat tepid. Oh dear.

Well, you know - I don't want to be a complete downer about it - it could be cool! And it's very likely going to result in another surge of interest in Cable/Deadpool fandom one way or another! But concepts as convoluted and as inescapably associated with the worst of the grimdark nineties EXTREEEEEMMMME!1!! phase of comics as Cable and X-Force are so easy to do badly and so hard to do well that I rly do not want to get my hopes too high. :/

I don't care who they put in it or how they make it work, I just want to see what they do with it. Movieverse never makes sense anyway, why should they start making sense now. I'm looking forward to this! I hope it doesn't get scrapped!
