X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Announcement Disrupted X-FORCE Film Claims Creator

The merc with a mouth's creator Rob Liefeld took to Twitter today to give hopeful fans an update on the long-rumored X-Force film, claiming that Fox's plans to go ahead with 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse have delayed the film. Hit the jump to check it out!

X-Force creator Rob Liefeld took to Twitter today to respond to a question asked by @actioncomics on the current state of the rumored X-Force film. In the reply Liefeld revealed that plans to release X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016 have disrupted the film's progress:


He went on to say that he didn't believe that the team's original leader, Cable, would be appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse, despite playing a large role in numerous storylines involving the villain:

What do you think? Will we ever see Cable and co. take to the big screen or will they be left to reside in the 90s cartoon? Sign off your thoughts on the future of the film in the comments!

They're not the New Mutants anymore! The mysterious Cable has taken Xavier's former students under his wing and transformed them into the pre-emptive strike team known as X-Force. X-Force is a fictional Marvel Comics superhero team, one of several spin-offs of the popular X-Men franchise, and theeponymous subject of the X-Force comic book series. Conceived by writer/illustrator Rob Liefeld, the team was formed in New Mutants, vol. 1 #100 (April 1991) and soon afterwards was featured in its own series.
