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:
It would be released this summer had Fox not been sold. Win some, lose some. Hoping Sony holds onto all their Spidey stuff. Keeps some territories away from the all family friendly stuff. https://t.co/YVpqkBIl8j

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.

New ‘Titans’ Photos Show Off Aqualad And The Original Team
DC Universe has released eight brand new images from the upcoming fourth episode of the second season of Titans entitled, "Aqualad".
"Aqualad" will explore the dynamic among Dick Grayson/Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Donna Troy/Wonder Girl (Conor Leslie), Hank Hall/Hawk (Alan Ritchson), Dawn Granger/Dove (Minka Kelly) and Garth/Aqualad (Drew Van Acker) and how four years prior, their tight-knit family dynamic developed only to have their personal feelings bleed more into their work only to be exacerbated by the arrival of a new villain.
These new images give fans a new look at Drew Van Acker as Aqualad as well as a couple of new looks at the original team united together for action. In particular, we get our best look at how the Aqualad suit translates onscreen in live-action form.

In Season 2, following the aftermath of their encounter with Trigon, Dick reforms the Titans. Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business. And as this family of old and new Titans – including Conner Kent and Rose Wilson – learn to co-exist, the arrival of Deathstroke brings to light the sins of the old Titans which threaten to tear this new Titans family apart once more.
The series stars Brenton Thwaites as Robin/Nightwing, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Ryan Potter as Beast Boy. Newcomers for its sophomore outing include Joshua Orpin and Esai Morales playing Superboy and Deathstroke, respectively, while Chella Man and Chelsea Zhang have also joined the cast as Deathstroke’s children Jericho and Ravager. Natalie Gumede has signed on to play Mercy Graves and Game of Thrones star Iain Glen is on board as Bruce Wayne.
