Yep, everyone's favorite Franco brother (sorry, Dave) is set to join the X-Men gang as Jamie Madrox, who goes by the name of Multiple Man, a superhero who can create and control multiple copies of himself - and that's basically the coolest thing we've ever heard.
The 127 Hours star will also produce the project alongside Simon Kinberg, while Wonder Woman writer Allan Heinberg is now working on the script. There will be three X-Men films next year, including New Mutants (April 13), Deadpool 2 (June 1) and X-Men: Dark Phoenix (November 2).
No release date has been given.
Madrox debuted, of all places, in a 1975 Fantastic Four comic (Giant-Size Fantastic Four No. 4, to be exact, by future X-Men writers Len Wein and Chris Claremont, with art by John Buscema), before fading into the background for a number of years. While Jamie was originally a minor character, his story was better established in Peter David's X-Factor run from the 1990s, which incorporated many lesser known heroes from the larger X-Men mythos. Versions of the character have made small appearances in the X-Men film series, but he's never had a central role until now.
There is no word on the timeline the studio envisions for production on the Multiple Man movie. It remains to be seen where Multiple Man might fall in this schedule. We assume that will not be the case in the new movie, as most of The Last Stand continuity has been wiped from existence.
Deadline reports the news of the teaming and described the character, who is part of the X-Men universe, in more detail.
