Rob Liefeld Reveals New Details Concerning MARVEL's Shut-Out of FOX

With rumors of Fantastic Four comics being cancelled to hurt the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, Marvel seems to be doing something similar with X-Men in an effort to hurt FOX's revenue from the films.

It seems as though rumors concerning the FOX shut-out courtesy of Marvel are true for the X-Men as well, though in a different field. The X-Men comics are some of the highest selling Marvel series being published so their cancellation is out of the question, but if Rob Liefeld is to be believed, they could be doing something else to hurt the X-Men films. 

Here is what Liefled had to say on the subject:

 















There you have it folks! While some may question why Rob Liefeld has any right to say anything, it should be noted he's been involved with the previously announced X-Force film, him knowing some of the inner workings of the studio may not be totally out of the question.

wow 2 versions of the same article, and they are both awful

@Mrcool210

Yeah its pretty bad, I rushed this one out and [frick]ed up posting it seeing as its been a while since I made an article on here.

Mrcool, haw!

Meanwhile... Is liefeld a reliable source? Hasn't he made stuff up before just to appear in the know?
Ramiel - 6/1/2014, 12:54 PM
Has the X-Men movies ever had toys tie-in? I can't seem to recall.
StingyFox - 6/1/2014, 12:54 PM
First of all, where is your source? Second of all, this sounds like bs. Marvel wouldn't do something this stupid. X-Men AND The Fantastic 4 are high selling comic books. If Marvel were to do that, they would lose A LOT of money. Plus Marvel is still represented somewhat in Fox's movies (hence the MARVEL logo).
ekrolo2 - 6/1/2014, 12:55 PM
@ruadh

Well he's apparently working with them on the X-Force film so I'd say he probably knows some inside stuff were aren't privy to.
Ramiel - 6/1/2014, 12:56 PM
@Stingy

FF was a high selling comic. GOTG sells more comics that FF nowadays.

Please edit this.

This requires multiple revisions.
0megaDaGod - 6/1/2014, 1:05 PM
LMAO

Supreme Dick Mode: ACTIVATED

I ain't even mad
thewonderer - 6/1/2014, 1:06 PM
This is so [frick]ing childish.

kevberg - 6/1/2014, 1:07 PM
If true --probably pissed he wont get any royalties on potential Deadpool toys.
Maestro - 6/1/2014, 1:07 PM
I hate to say it, but its a business. Why would marvel make DOFP toys? Promoting something they will get nothing out of. Toy sales don't even come close to box office sales, so FOX would no doubt be taking the most benefit if marvel made their toys.

It says they're not making DOFP toys, but they will no doubt continue to make marvel comics xmen toys. That makes sense
Maestro - 6/1/2014, 1:08 PM
@omega

LOL!!
Indy - 6/1/2014, 1:09 PM
@Ramiel
Yeah they did

Is this really happing? because it sounds so stupid if it is.
ekrolo2 - 6/1/2014, 1:10 PM
Man I REALLY screwed this article up. Sorry guys. Won't happen again (hopefully).
Bekss - 6/1/2014, 1:10 PM
Spiderman will never be in Avengers. You have to be stupid to think it will after Arad comments.
MrMartinMarvel - 6/1/2014, 1:11 PM
Yeah, this is really starting to enter dick territory.
DaVinci31 - 6/1/2014, 1:11 PM
Speaking of X-Force.

I hope X-Force, in some way, reboots the character of Wolverine.



With Thomas Jane as the character.



ekrolo2 - 6/1/2014, 1:11 PM
@Bekss

That was before ASM2 failed to even reach the numbers of the first one after being in theaters for well over a month, and nearly towards the end of its theatrical run.
0megaDaGod - 6/1/2014, 1:12 PM
This is high level trolling. The Cohiba cigar of trolling

And to anyone dissing Marvel, you gotta understand that if people on random message boards with no power are calling for the rights to revert, you can only imagine what executives at Marvel are willing to do in order to get those rights, even if it requires hurting their own brand for a bit

Again, I am NOT mad. This is hilarious
MightOfMagneto - 6/1/2014, 1:12 PM
Hahaha... Marvel Studio is so butthurt...
0megaDaGod - 6/1/2014, 1:13 PM
@Ekrolo

It's all good. People complain about the quality of articles for good reason, but we'll take news over no news. If you want this to hit main tho, you'd best clean it up
Indy - 6/1/2014, 1:13 PM
If this true why aren't they doing this to Sony and spider-man?
Blanka1212 - 6/1/2014, 1:14 PM
There is a Marvel Select DOTFP Mystique figure coming out, and they just recently released "The Wolverine" Logan.

This article is bullshit.
MightOfMagneto - 6/1/2014, 1:15 PM
First...

[frick]ing with their talents

Now...

[frick]ing with other studio and sabotaging their own properties.
Maestro - 6/1/2014, 1:15 PM
Lol Fox getting that 3rd stepchild treatment.

NO TOYS FOR YOU!!

Ramiel - 6/1/2014, 1:15 PM
Well, well

DaVinci31 - 6/1/2014, 1:15 PM

StarYeezus - 6/1/2014, 1:15 PM
Makes sense. Why did you think only the MCU properties in Lego Marvel Superheroes had movie costumes whereas X-Men & Spider-Man had their comic versions.
MecoBoy - 6/1/2014, 1:16 PM
Spider-man en los Avengers 3 seria un espectáculo, más que cuando México gano el campeonato durante los olímpicos
Reasonnnn - 6/1/2014, 1:17 PM
[frick] Robert Liefield.
Bekss - 6/1/2014, 1:18 PM
StarYeezus

Because their movie costumes are bad
Indy - 6/1/2014, 1:18 PM
$24.99 for a action figure?
Blanka1212 - 6/1/2014, 1:19 PM
Thank you, Ramiel. I don't know how to post pictures, but I tried. This is a bullshit article. Rob Liefeld is hardly a trustworthy source.
DeusExSponge - 6/1/2014, 1:20 PM
So is this true or not?
ekrolo2 - 6/1/2014, 1:20 PM
@DaVinci31

I have failed you all! To restore my honor I must perform the act of senpuku! See ya on the other side!

*Stabs self in the gut*.
