When the announcement was made by Twentieth Century Fox that a Deadpool movie was in production, the same people who produced all the X-men films, people asked themselves how connected (if at all) the films would be. Well in an interview Simon Kinberg, writer and producer of Days of Future Past, has answered our questions.
““There’s definitely a sort of overall plan that we’ve all been talking about for the X-Men universe now,” Kinberg explained, “and Deadpool obviously fits into that. So yeah, I guess I would say it’s part of certainly an overall timeline and thought process that goes into these films, some of which is inspired by the comics and some which is inspired by seeing what Marvel’s done with telling a larger tapestry and linking all those movies together, even as they stand independently as well. The same kind of thought is going to go into these X-Men movies at Fox.”
This is a complete game changer. While I was very much looking forward to a Deadpool live-action film, a connected universe makes it even more appealing. How excited are you for a Deadpool film, and does the fact that it’s connected to the X-men universe please you?
