Warning: Plot spoilers from Deadpool 2 follow below the photo, as suggested by the word “massacre” in the headline.
Wade Wilson will be back on our screens in his own superhero team-up, X-Force.
However, Deadpool 2 rather unhelpfully killed the majority of the team in their on-screen debut, as Shatterstar, Bedlam, Vanisher and Zeitgeist met their maker in a particularly gruesome fashion.
Admitting to EW that he was, understandably, blindsided when that happened, X-Force writer/director Drew Goddard explained: “What I love most about what Ryan [Reynolds] and his crew over there was able to do with the Deadpool movies is bring this certain sense of surprise and danger.
“You walk into those movies, and you really don’t know what’s going to happen.”
On the team’s bloodbath, he added: “To be honest, I think that’s why it excited me so much.
“I remember reading that scene and just cackling with delight, specifically because it was the very last thing you’d expect to happen in one of these movies. These movies are so careful to set up the next thing and the next thing, and it made me so happy.”
“One thing I said to Ryan was, ‘Don’t worry about it, we’ll come up with new ideas; you guys go make your movie, and do your thing. We’ll figure it out’.
“That tends to be the way I like to work. It’s much more important to focus on making the movie that you’re making than focusing on the next thing.
“It’s much more important to just make one good movie and take your time, then let that dictate what the movies are after.”
