Could an X-Force movie be in our future?

July 11th, 2013 by Marc Comments

These are exciting times to be an X-fan. Not only did we get the glorious First Class movie, it’s follow up tackling one of the best story arcs in X-history, Days of Future Past, but now it seems we will be getting an X-Force movie as well!

According to website X-Men Films ( 20th Century Fox have registered the domain name X-Men Films points out that this is usually how X-movie news gets leaked. Wait, it gets better, its also being reported that talks with X-Force creator Rob Liefeld are pointing towards the possibility of Cable making his movie debut in the film!

Mark Millar, Marvel writer turned Marvel film guru for Fox stated:

“You have to remember that Fox grabbed the X-Men back in the ’90s because it was the biggest franchise in the world. So X-Force or Cable or Deadpool — all these amazing characters are things we haven’t really gotten to yet. ‘X-Force’ #1 was the second biggest book of all time behind Jim Lee’s ‘X-Men’ #1, so there’s an immediate brand recognition to that stuff and a build in fanbase. You go to any convention in the world, and you’ll see 20 people dressed as Deadpool. In a lot of ways, these are Marvel’s coolest characters, so I want to remind people of that and build on what we already have. I think there’s a great foundation, and just from basic conversations, we’ve come up with ten movies we could do. These things cost $150 million each to make, so we have to pick and choose what we want to do.”

Hold on to your horses because as further confirmation we also have this tweet Liefeld sent out when asked to respond to the X-Men Films article:

So boom! There you have it! The only question now remains what iteration of militant mutant group will be getting? Cable’s team of New Mutants? Wolverine’s Uncanny wetworks team? Only time will tell, but stay tuned into The Nerd as more news breaks!


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….
