Surprise! More new Deadpool photos have arrived online. Although the 12 Days of Deadpool came to an end with the red and green band trailers on Christmas Day, even more photos and details from the Merc With a Mouth’s R-rated solo outing have been popping up daily since then, with the latest batch of photos showing off an X-Men connection and a very dusty Angel Dust.

Back in 2013, 20th Century Fox tapped Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow to write the screenplay for an X-Force movie, but when Tim Miller’s Deadpool concept footage “leaked” online, Fox fast-tracked the Merc With a Mouth’s solo film and put X-Force on the back burner. We still don’t know much about X-Force — is Wadlow also directing it? Which characters will be included in the lineup? Will familiar X-Men characters appear? — but new concept art may give us an indication of where Fox is headed with the project.

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Trailer: The End Is Nigh for Marvel’s Mutants

I’m an old enough nerd to remember when the first X-Men movie came out in theaters. At that time, comic books were not the number one driver of all things in popular culture. Bryan Singer’s X-Men certainly featured all the comic’s beloved heroes and villains, but there did seem like there was a concerted effort to tamp down some of their comic-book-ness. Everyone dressed in black. There was no spandex. The story was grounded in weighty real-world themes like prejudice and vengeance. It was the X-Men you knew, but watered down just a bit. It was a rum and coke, not a shot of gin. X-Men: Apocalypse, in comparison, looks like a bottle of Beefeater.

‘Deadpool’ Will Feature Much More of Colossus Than the ‘X-Men’ Films

Colossus has been a mainstay in the X-Men comic book universe since the mid-’70s, but we’ve seen so little of his character in the actual films — he’s appeared in three of the five X-Men movies, but his involvement is always so brief. That’s going to change in the Deadpool film, as actor Andre Tricoteux has revealed that we’ll be seeing a whole lot more of Colossus.

Minds behind the live-action X-Men universe surprised us all with the announcement of not one, but two distinct series based on characters from the mutant universe, but somewhat unclear was their relationship to the films. Now, Legion and Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley offers a bit of clarification, seemingly distancing all three branches of the X-Men properties.

Yesterday, we learned that 20th Century Fox had worked out a new accord with Marvel permitting the studio to ferry one of its hottest properties into the lucrative land of milk and honey that is television. Fox has announced plans to develop two shows spun off from their X-Men franchise, one about an elite organization of mega-rich mutants called Hellfire and another about David Haller, a.k.a. the son of Charles Xavier, a.k.a. Legion. A new report from Den of Geek (still awaiting confirmation from Marvel) suggests that there may be an unknown flip side to this deal that would place The Fantastic Four, one of Marvel’s most iconic properties, back in their portfolio with another big-screen project to follow.

The X-Men cinematic universe has been mulling around a TV branch for some time now, and at last we've learned that mutants will invade not one, but two new series. FX has tapped Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley to helm a series around Professor Xavier's son Legion, while FOX will join the club, literally and figuratively, with a Hellfire TV series.

Marvel Still Pissed at Fox, Now Using The Inhumans to Kill Off The X-Men

The Marvel Cinematic Universe was built out of spare parts. With heavy-hitters like Spider-Man and the X-Men owned by different studios, Marvel Studios bet big on less popular characters and emerged victorious. Suddenly, Iron Man and Captain America became a big deal for ordinary, non-nerd people. Marvel no longer needs their big guns to matter. And now, they’re showcasing their clout by ruthlessly removing the X-Men from the comic book landscape using the characters they intend to replace them with – the Inhumans.
