Simon Kinberg Confirms 'Deadpool' is in the 'X-Men Cinematic Universe'

Several weeks ago fans finally rejoiced to learn that Deadpool would be making his way onto the big screen. This comes off being in development hell since 2009's initial announcement. But many have wondered if this Deadpool would be connected in anyway to the other X-Men films given the leaked 2010 script doesn't even mention any of the other X-Men beside Colossus who plays a pretty large part in the original script. Well, while speaking with the writer for both Days of Future Past and the upcoming Apocalypse confirms that this upcoming Deadpool reboot is indeed set within the X-Men Cinematic Universe:
“There’s definitely a sort of overall plan that we’ve all been talking about for the X-Men universe now and Deadpool obviously fits into that. So yeah, I guess I would say it's part of certainly an overall timeline and thought process that goes into these films, some of which is inspired by the comics and some which is inspired by seeing what Marvel’s done with telling a larger tapestry and linking all those movies together, even as they stand independently as well. The same kind of thought is going to go into these X-Men movies at Fox.”
Now if that is the case many will wonder what about Barak-pool seen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine? Well, thanks to the timeline change in X-Men: Days of Future Past the events of Origins has all been "deleted" from the timeline thus a new Deadpool can emerge.

Another question is if Colossus is still in the newly rewritten script will Daniel Cudmore play the character like he had in all of the other X-Men films? Well back in July 2013 Cudmore did reveal to Superhero Movie News that he loved the script and will love to return to the franchise.

Deadpool will hit February 12th, 2016
