Default Re: The X-FORCE Official Thread

Unless you're going to create an entirely new continuity, I honestly think that the most organic way to do an X-Force film is to use DoFP to establish that the 2023 dystopian future from that movie still exists - albeit not as dangerous thanks to whatever was done in the past - and have said future be the setting for the X-Force movie. That way, you've got both a loose connection to the X-Franchise as well as the creative freedom to pretty much tell whatever stories you want.

Doing this would mean no cross-polienization of the franchises unless you made it clear that the X-Force timeline was different from the timeline of the 'X-Franchise', but I don't think doing crossovers would be the best option anyway.

"Despair is for people who know beyond any doubt what the future is going to be. Nobody's in that position. So despair is not only a kind of sin - theologically - it's also a simple mistake, because nobody actually knows." - Dr. Patrick Curry
"There is no "supposed to be." It's an adaptation, a word that literally means change. Why bother making a new version if it doesn't offer a fresh approach?" - Christopher L. Bennett
