Not exactly true.
Deadpool got assigned screenwriters, a Director and Star right after XMOW. Problems were always the R Rating and will always be that. Nothing for Gambit.
Despite how mistreated Deadpool was, the popularity of the character caught Fox's attention when the film was released, more so then Gambit. Which is not what they expected to happen pre XMOW.
Back to X-Froce...
Seems it may get official announcement at Comic con.
This past week or so, we’ve been “off camera,” chasing rumours that Fox are on the verge of announcing plans for their extended X-Men movie universe. We were tipped off that they will – unsurprisingly – be using their panel at Comic-Con as the launch pad.
