HEY! DO YOU LIKE LOTS OF POUCHES ON YOUR PROTAGONISTS? OF COURSE YOU DO! DO YOU LOVE TINY, DISPROPORTIONATE FEET, OFTEN HIDDEN BEHIND RUBBLE? IS THAT EVEN A REAL QUESTION? ARE YOU TIRED OF YOUR HEROES HAVING ANYTHING RESEMBLING REAL ANATOMY? SURVEY SAYS YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
BASED ON THE PRESUMPTIONS ABOVE, DO I HAVE SOME GREAT NEWS FOR YOU, READER! ACCORDING TO XMENFILMS.COM, 20TH CENTURY FOX BOUGHT THE URL X-FORCEMOVIE.COM. IF THAT DOESNT SCREAM LARGE GUNS, BIONIC ARMS, AND WOMEN IN PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE POSITIONS TO YOU, I DON’T KNOW WHAT WILL!
THERE’S A PRETTY TELLING QUOTE BELOW THAT ELABORATES ON THE POSSIBILITY OF AN X-FORCE MOVIE JAMMING ITSELF INTO YOUR EYE SOCKETS IN THE NEAR FUTURE IF YOU’RE INTO THAT SORT OF THING![VIA XMENFILMS.COM]
LAST YEAR, MARVEL CONSULTANT AND KICK-ASS CREATOR MARK MILLAR HAD THIS TO SAY:
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.
GET READY FOR EXTREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEMEEEEEEEEE!
