Re: The X-force Casting Thread
^ We never saw Cannonball or Boom Boom at the mansion, so the story could easily be these two runaways, young lovers, whatever, who get into some trouble and saved by Cable, Domino and one other.
To me the only way to have Cannonball is to include Boom Boom!
Although I would like to see them get to the point where Deadpool is in, they need to start with an origin, and having Deadpool as a villain would be very cool!
Besides, in all of these types of movies, having youth helps. The idea of young love has been a big storyline in most of these flicks. From Rogue and Bobby to Mystique and Beast, it's very effective. Having Cable, Domino, Deadpool, Colossus, Psylocke and Fantomex would make this nothing more than some X-death squad. Where would the X come from then?
No, having the youthful characters of Cannonball and Boom Boom be guided, protected and trained by the seasoned Cable, Domino and one other (Psylocke, Shatterstar or Feral - for example) would make a great origin line-up. And simply put, if the two were from the mansion the X would make more sense. They could even reference how they are students at Xavier's School, which could lead to Cable and Xavier holding a "discussion" about these students at the end, and the name X-Force could be applied...
