So how do you make a X-Force movie that is relevant and different from anything that has come before? How is X-Men First Class not an “X-Force” movie? I’m all about Marvel expanding their X-verse and X-Force is the first step out of the X-Men world. Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow had the following to say to BleedingCool.com, and how his movie will differ from the other X-films and the comic itself. I think in terms of making it interesting and more updated they should look at what Marvel NOW! is doing in the funny books.
I’m very deep into it. I can’t really say much as Fox has asked me not to but, again, it’s not a reboot or reimagining of the X cinematic universe. Tonally it will fit in, quite well with all the other movies… but then I think the other movies cover a wide range of tones. It’s certainly not going to be tonally similar to Kick-Ass.
I hope it will have what fans of X-Force will expect. I think it will be a little edgier, I think you’ll see some characters with different takes on what it means to be a mutant. There will be some grey areas that the movies haven’t yet been explored. It won’t be as “overt.” This movie is more about the grey areas in between.
I’m going to take some big ideas from the X-universe and flip them, I think in an interesting way. It’s hard to talk about that, though, without being specific. I probably shouldn’t have even talked about that at all because I can’t get into the specifics but I will say it’s similar to Kick-Ass 2 in that it wasn’t an open assignment, it wasn’t “We’re going to make an X-Force movie, who’s interested? Here’s what the movie’s going to be.”
When Mark [Millar] got the job with Fox I said “The first movie you guys should make is an X-Force movie and here’s how you should do it.” And that got him excited, and that got the studio excited and that’s the movie I’m writing.

I don’t know about you but I am really excited to see how both Marvel films will interpret Quicksilver. Bryan Singer has once again taken to Twitter about the status of his latest X-film, Days of Future Past. Here’s what he had to say about filming Quicksilver, who will be played by Evan Peters (American Horror Story).
