WATCH: It looks like Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld has big plans for the X-Force villain… if it happens

July 29th, 2018 by Marc Comments

While everything is up in the air at the minute about wether or not 20th Century Fox will be making more Marvel movies, it seems that plans are still afoot.

The rumours even went to far as to say that we may not even get to see X-Men: Dark Phoenix or New Mutants – we will, don’t worry – but with Disney now being the merging process with Fox, we may not see X-Men movies beyond that.

Or if we do, will they be part of Fox’s existing universe, or will we see The MCU’s version of the characters with new casts on place?

Whatever happens, Deadpool’s creator Rob Liefeld certainly has plans for the X-Force movie…

Speaking to Nerdist (below) Liefeld says that with everything in place for X-Force, he seemingly has plans for the villain.


“You have to scratch that Stryfe itch,” he said.

Who is Stryfe? Well, in the comics he’s a clone of Cable, played in Deadpool 2 by Thanos himself, Josh Brolin, and was raised by Apocalypse.

So, basically he’s Cable only totally bad.

We’d love to Brolin as both the villain and hero of the X-Force movie and, given what we’ve seen Brolin do this year especially, we reckon he could knock it out of the park.


Directed by David Leitch, Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth, Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Cable, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stefan Kapcic as Colossus, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlisle, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al and Karan Soni as Dopinder.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
