Rob Liefeld calls Jeff Wadlow's X-Force movie script "beyond impressive"

12.04.2013

X-Force co-creator Rob Liefeld has apparently read Jeff Wadlow's most recent draft of the screenplay for the planned X-Force movie, and he is pretty pleased with it. He took to his Twitter account yesterday, and shared some thoughts on the script for X-FORCE.

Based on Liefeld's tweets, it might seem like Deadpool and Cable will definitely appear in X-FORCE, but we should remember this is still a fairly early draft of the script, and things could always change.

Jeff Wadlow sounded like he had a good handle on the source material when he was talking about X-FORCE a few months ago, and if Rob Liefeld is happy with the script for it, that's got to be a good sign for the film. It's not as if Liefeld would trash the screenplay if he didn't care for it (unlike say, Alan Moore), but fans must be happy to hear all this praise for the script coming from one of the creators of the comics.

beyond impressive?

i'm sure it is.... it's X-FORCE.... and I hope that i'm impressed because I sure as hell wasn't while reading those issues Rob Liefeld drew....
X-Force always seemed like a cheap attempt to cash in on the X-Men Super Hero mega-Teams of the 90s...

I always hated X-Force. It's entry pretty much coincided w/ me bailing on my beloved X-Men. And comics in general.

Is that the team they would really feature in the film? Psylocke, Archangle, etc. . . ?

That was a mouthful of appreciation there. Seeing Cable in live action mode will be awesome.

well what the hell else was he gonna say?!? and what lineup are they going to use realistically? Angel has already been (mis)used, with no preamble to the Archangel, Psylocke has no backstory, Wolverine isnt going to bother and Deadpool is, well, mostly dead. They might toss Cable into the densely packed DOFP but i dont trust this. and i sure as hell dont trust Rob Liefeld.

Enjoyed Wadlow's Kick Ass 2 so have faith in the film although couldn't give a shit about Liefeld's opinion. At least we can confirm Deadpool and Cable from his jerk off session.

Geez, it looks like a Kevin Smith twitter account. But good to hear the script is true to the material. We definitely need an awesome Deadpool after Origins.

Yea Liefelds art sucks, but I dont think his opinion means nothing. I mean, Rick Remender signing off on X-Force would be a bigger deal for me. As would Joe Kelly signing off on Deadpool. But still, this isn't nothing.

Did you know?

That they actually approached Liefeld and asked him to contribute to the script. Liefeld's response? More pouches, many more pouches.

Don't forget, the guns should be so enormous, only the mutants w/ super strength should be able to carry them.

We shouldn't going by his standards. But I certainly hope this comes to fruition and doesn't end up mired in pre-production hell like the Deadpool flick.

So?

Getting a glowing review from Liefeld is like having a disgruntled mental patient rub his own feces on you. Liefeld is a hack, and is generally hated throughout the comic book world. His art sucks, and he is impossible to work with. That's why he isn't doing anything at any of the major comic companies, including Image, which he co-founded.
