It was a long time coming and the fans have been calling for a Deadpool movie for many years now, so we were all delighted when the movie finally hit the big screen this year. Deadpool has gone on to prove hugely successful, already managing to gross over $600m worldwide, surpassing what many people actually thought an R-rated Deadpool movie would actually be able to achieve.
With the success of Deadpool, talk has now turned to the future of the character, with a Deadpool sequel already being given the green light, exciting fans around the world. One of our favourite parts of Deadpool was getting to see the character sharing scenes with X-Men characters Colossus Negasonic Teenage Warhead, which has led to fans to question which X-Men characters we will see in the future.
Since we know that we are going to get to see a Deadpool sequel, it is very likely that we are going to get to see some more X-Men characters popping up in that film but what about the future of the X-Men franchise itself? Well, with X-Men: Apocalypse set in the 1980s, we assume that the next film would be the 1990s and so on, so it would be some time before the X-Men timeline caught up with where Deadpool is at.
With that said, there has also been plenty of talk about the current stars in the X-Men movie franchise, with some contracts running out putting the future of the franchise in doubt. We would love to see Deadpool teaming up in an X-Men movie but, for now, we are more than happy just to see Deadpool doing his solo stuff on the big screen. Watch this space!
