With each day that passes, fans get closer and closer to the 2016 release of Deadpool. With the movie so many days away, it’s still hard to believe that there is already talks about a sequel in the works. No one has seen the movie, really. In fact, only rough cuts have been viewed. Nonetheless, the rough cuts have been good enough that executives are feeling good. Thanks to the utter failure that was the Fantastic Four movie, Fox is looking to go big or go home at this point. So with that in mind, there is a chance that fans will get to see a character many have been longing to see on the big screen.
Who is that character you may ask? We’ll get to that soon enough. First, here is what producer Simon Kinberg said about the possible follow-up to Deadpool,
“I have seen a rough cut of Deadpool and it’s fantastic. It’s a really good movie. It delivers on the promise of the trailer. We certainly are talking about the sequel…But yeah [Fox is] feeling good about it, we’re all feeling really proud of it, so hopefully before it comes out we will be well into the process of figuring out a sequel.”
Okay, so you want to know who might be coming to dinner. Of course it’s Cable! Check out what Kinberg had to say about seeing the duo on screen together,
“It’s certainly come up because he’s such a big character in the world. And it’s a character that I’ve always wanted to do in one form or another, we talked about Cable actually in Days of Future Past at one point. But yeah we’re in such the early stages of sequel talk it would be genuinely premature for me to say whether or not he was gonna be in it.”
What?! He was almost in Days of Future Past? Who knows how he could have fit into that movie, but seeing him would have been exciting. It may not be a solid confirmation, but it’s good to know that the folks behind the scenes have a decent understanding of Deadpool, his friends, and the fans that love them.
