The film would reunite Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool and Josh Brolin as Cable as they lead a black ops team made up of much more ruthless mutants than the more family-friendly X-Men.
Kinberg, Reynolds and Lauren Shuler Donner are producing. Goddard won raves for his work on Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil series, so jumping to the big screen to oversee a major franchise actioner is a natural next step.
Goddard previously helmed Cabin in the Woods and wrote The Martian, World War Z, and Cloverfield. He is represented by UTA.
