X-FORCE Movie Is in the Works, Could Feature WOLVERINE Clone X-23

We’ve been hearing rumors and talks of an X-Force movie for years now, but with films like Deadpool, X-Men:Apocalypse, Hugh Jackman’s last Wolverine, and the New Mutants film taking priority, it’s been stuck in development limbo. But don’t lose hope just yet; according to a report by Fandango, an X-Force project is back in development at Fox!

Since Hugh Jackman is on his farewell tour as Wolverine, the new X-Force movie will likely feature a new version of our favorite adamantium-clawed mutant. But could that new Wolverine actually end up being Laura Kinney, a.k.a. X-23, Logan’s female clone? According to Bryan Singer, it could be. When Fandango asked the X-Men: Apocalypse director if he had any involvement with the project, he shared, “I have discussed that with the studio. I actually initially pitched the X-Force and the female.”

Does that mean X-23 is a shoe-in for the new movie? Not necessarily. Singer explained to Fandango that his involvement in the X-Force film is only on the “idea level” at this time. That little Days of Future Past movie (and now Apocalypse) kind of took him away from X-Force planning, so who knows if the inclusion of X-23 will go beyond his initial pitch. Singer’s next project will be an updated 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, he may end up serving as a producer instead. However, Singer did confirm that the X-Force movie is officially back in the works, and Simon Kinberg will be tackling the script.

Are you an X-Force fan? What do you hope to see in the film? (*Cough Deadpool*) Let’s talk X-Force in the comments!
