In an interview Ryan Reynolds states that Deadpool only saves Peter out of the X-Force members.
"So I love that he just completely ignores this marquee cast that he could've saved of useful and wonderful superheroes," Reynolds explained, "but instead went back and saved [Peter]."
But according to Reynolds, that choice to save Peter actually has a deeper meaning behind it, when you look at one of the film's earlier sequences.
"Well here's the thing though, I always felt that it was important to save Peter, just because in the helicopter before we jump, I say to him 'I'd never let anything happen to you, sugar bear. I'm just saying this to impress the other guys.' And we all jump out of the thing." Reynolds continued. "So I felt like that was a promise that Wade made early on in the movie, and it was nagging him, so he went back and got Peter."

Although Paul Wernick has stated because Deadpool has Cable's time travel device they might bring the characters back if they want to.
"I’d say yes, [we were nervous about the fan reaction]." Wernick revealed. "Absolutely. Terrified. These are characters that childhoods grow up on. So the idea that Shatterstar just jumps out of a plane and dies, then yeah. But our test with Deadpool is, if you couldn’t do it in another superhero movie then you SHOULD do it in Deadpool. It’s like we’re given the license to push the boundaries and it’s a boundary we definitely worry about. It’s shocking and crazy and funny and we built our whole marketing campaign around these guys. People are coming to the movie thinking these guys are gonna team up and be part of this X-Force and in an instant they’re all dead! Comedy trumped better judgment."
But of course, the film essentially built in a way for any of these original team members to return later on, should they make their way into Drew Goddard's proposed X-Force film.
"Here’s the beauty of it," Wernick added, "Deadpool has gotten hold of Cable’s time-travel device so we could always bring back any of these guys if we wanted to."
