Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld has said that the X-Force film would have been released this summer.

It’s no secret by now that the Disney acquisition of Fox had many casualties. While we don’t know how many X-Men films Fox had planned, they were all more than likely given the ax so that Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios could begin work on bringing the iconic team into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  One such casualty was the X-Force film.

X-Force was set to be written and directed by Netflix’s Daredevil creator Drew Goddard with Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin and Zazie Beetz all apparently returning as Deadpool, Cable, and Domino. Unfortunately, the X-Force film is not likely to happen any time soon, if at all, because of the Disney acquisition. But, according to Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, the film was set to be released a lot sooner then we might have otherwise thought.

While discussing the X-Force series on Twitter, Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld revealed that the film adaptation would have been released in the summer of this year:

Rob Liefeld’s X-Force was a series that debuted in 1991 as a spinoff of the New Mutants series. The first issue was, at the time, the best selling individual comic book of all time before being beaten out by Jim Lee’s X-Men #1. The team made its first live-action debut in Deadpool 2 where Deadpool assembled a team to try and stop Cable. Most of the X-Force met a tragic and horrific end shortly after being introduced thanks to poor planning on the part of Deadpool. But it seems that Fox was, at one point, determined to bring Rob Liefeld’s mutant team back into live-action and it would have come to theaters this summer.
