Kick-Ass 2 is less than two weeks away from hitting theaters, and filmmaker Jeff Wadlow has recently been making the press rounds, where the talk naturally gravitates towards his upcoming project X-Force.
Since the news of this project first broke last month, we haven't heard much in terms of specific story details, but the writer-director did speak about the tone in a recent interview.
"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."
There have been several members of the X-Force throughout its various iterations, including heroes such as Cable, Cannonball, Domino, Warpath, Wolverine, Deadpool, Psylocke and Colossus. It isn't known what members will be featured in this upcoming adaptation.
