Jeff Wadlow won't say much about X-Force

With Kick-Ass 2 now in theaters, Jeff Wadlow can now turn his attention to X-Force. It was recently announced that Fox had hired him to direct an adaptation of the Marvel comic.

Don’t expect much right now from Wadlow about it. While promoting Kick-Ass 2 with Den of Geek, the subject of X-Force came up.

“All I can say is this: I bought X-Force #1 when I was a kid, I’ve read the recent run of Uncanny X-Force which I thought was fantastic, but other than that I just can’t comment on the line-up or anything yet,” Wadlow said.

“It will seamlessly exist in the X-Men cinematic universe, but it’s not a sequel,” Wadlow also said about whether it’s a spin-off or not.

Fox has him on a tight ship or he doesn’t know exactly what kind of direction the film will go in. It’s completely understandable.

Wadlow was asked about whether he would be interested in making Kick-Ass 3.

It’s funny, I sort of wear two hats. There’s my fan hat – I saw the first and I loved it. And then when I got to make the sequel, I put on the filmmaking hat. Mark actually sent me the scripts for Kick-Ass 3 and I won’t read them because I want to read it in the comics as they come out, you know? But yeah, as a filmmaker I haven’t allowed myself to think too much about a third Kick-Ass film, because we’ve all seen those sequels that are just about setting up the next movie and they’re kind of unsatisfying. I wanted Kick-Ass 2 to have a proper ending, so I couldn’t allow myself to think about what comes next. And what’s more, if I did have a good idea I should just pull it into Kick-Ass 2, right?

Never say never.
