Difference is Deadpool belongs on X-Froce, just like Gambit belongs on X-Men. He has been in every volume of the book and has definitely earned his spot there. Not to mention how popular he is now. You think Fox is gonna miss a chance to do him right now that they know his popularity? They are gonna set him up to make the most money they can out of him. Just like they do with another Weapon X character.

This all depends on one thing. Does Fox want Deadpool interacting with their X-Men Universe? I am 90% sure the answer is yes. X-Force is actually the right way to do that.
I'm sorry, but I doubt "X-Force" will help set up as a popular movie character ON HIS OWN. If he'll be in this movie, he'll either go down as a popular supporting character on this franchise (= wasted potential) or get a spin-off movie, which features THIS PG-13 version of the character (= "Deadpool, the character from the X-Force movie you watched last summer, just without the other X-guys" - still wasted potential).

Setting characters up in movies doesn't work like in the comics, where die-hard fans and readers are like "Oh, this character's cool. He's getting his OWN, completely different series? I'm gonna buy that one, too."
