Deadpool 2 and Gambit inching closer to production

The X-Men film universe is going to have a few more films in production early next year.

Speaking with The Hashtag Show, Simon Kinberg has given some updates on the upcoming X-Men films. Deadpool 2 is going to be first up with production expected to begin in early 2017.

The first thing up, we’re shooting the Wolverine movie right now and we start shooting Deadpool 2 at the beginning of next year, then I sit down and start writing the next of the mainline X-Men movies.

But that leaves the question of the Gambit film that has been delayed multiple times now. Kinberg, however, remains hopeful.

We have a great script on that and hope to shoot that movie at the beginning of spring of next year.

Hopefully it actually happens this time, but I think after Deadpool pulled in $781.57M globally it’s pretty clear where the focus is as it ended up being the highest earning X-Men film
