Are you excited for Deadpool? I know I am, and most people I talk to certainly are excited as well. Here’s the thing though. With the rise of Deadpool came something of a casualty as well that most people aren’t thinking about – The Death of X-Force.

The panel featured director Jeff Wadlow, creators Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Lindy Booth, Donald Faison, John Leguizamo, with a special video appearance from Chloe Moretz. The cast answered questions and joked with the audience while describing the filming of the sequel.
Oh, and they released a new extended Redband trailer that is definitely NSFW:
