Producer Simon Kinberg has unveiled the mighty plans 20th Century Fox has for their Marvel-based franchise.

Promoting the Logan film in an interview with Deadline, Kinberg released some of the coming projects – a few we thought were dead in the water – and unveiled that the planned X-Force film will headline both Cable And Deadpool:

We are working hard on New Mutants, Gambit with Channing Tatum, Deadpool 2 and the new X-Force movie where Deadpool is alongside Cable and other main characters. Deadpool 2 is going into production this year. Then X Force which is a combination of Deadpool, and Cable, they’re like the Black ops of the X-Men. They’re much darker and have an R-rated decibel. There are other X-Men characters coming into X-Force at different times in the comic, but it’s separate from X-Men. There is a larger architecture to tell these stories in. I talk to the studio all the time about this and there is a plan for how these movies can connect and be a part of a larger narrative. It’s something that’s fun, exciting and it will be interesting to see how we marry the different tones that we’ve been generating in these standalone movies of the X-Men universe. But we go into making the best movie we can. It’s not just about a Colossus or Deadpool cameo. Connecting all of these movies will happen when it organically makes sense. These movies aren’t simply being built as stepping stones to a larger story. Each one is wholly enclosed and a movie worth seeing.

X-Force is rumoured that Bad Boys III director Joe Carnahan was coming aboard to direct X-Force, and that he is actually co-writing the screenplay with Deadpool and Deadpool 2 star Ryan Reynolds.

In any case, it seems 20th Century Fox is trying to delve deep with their piece of the Marvel pie with a more inter-connected universe. Whether we will see more collaborative efforts with Marvel Studios is yet to be seen.
