Do Not Speak His Name Out Loud

FOR THE LOVE OF JACK KIRBY!! How can this abomination be allowed to continue. You actually have to create something ORIGINAL to make it into the comic book movie business, buddy. And if your approach to that is like your approach to comic book art then I wish you many failures. And lets me honest. 'Spider-man with guns' is hardly original and all the GOOD things about Deadpool came from other writers and artists who turned your shell into a unique character. That's as close as you get to immortality. If it doesn't hurt your eyes look at this generic team of crap that he thinks would make a comic book movie. Just stop now before you really hurt yourself. GAH, even the names for these 'properties' are lame. I swear this guy attracts lame like shit attracts flies.
Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld has sold the option for Brigade, and several other of his creator-owned properties as part of an interconnected Extreme Cinematic Universe, reports Deadline. Graham King and Fundamental Films have optioned the multi-faceted property, enlisting Akiva Goldsman to co-produce the movies with Liefeld and his manager, Brooklyn Weaver from Energy Entertainment.
"People love these comics. Looking forward to doing them justice with 2 powerhouse filmmakers," Liefeld tweeted.
This deal reportedly covers nine different Liefeld titles - Brigade, Bloodstrike, Cybrid, Lethal, Re-Gex, Bloodwulf, Battlestone, Kaboom, and Nitrogen. Neither Youngblood or Prophet are named in the deal despite being major parts of Liefeld's creator-owned universe; both were previously optioned for film deals.

Name me TWO people who LOVED these comics. We may have foolishly bought them but we did not enjoy them. Oh I just hate him so much.

This will be the beginning of the end for comic book movies. Take everything that was the last Fantastic Four debacle and exponentially multiply the suckiness factor and you will get whatever the end result of this dreck will be. The main difference will be that while the last FF movie showed a complete disregard for the source material and what made it great, these movies will likely lovingly mimic the source material and what made it suck. But there will be guns, for sure. Lot's of giant missile-sized guns that just holding upright defies the laws of physics. And they'll need lots of CGI for the guys with arms like redwoods and heads like softballs. and let's not forget the women with their 8 inch waists and size 48DDD breasts. (Their superpower is being able to stand upright.) And those NAMES. GAH! If it was up to him, Spider-Man would have been called Araknyd or Dedbludwulfspyder or Houseboat, or some other lame, misspelled or totally meaningless and unrelated appellation that he blindly picked out of a dictionary to use as a character name.

I saw that the other day and thought of you exploding at the computer. Honestly, who in there right mind thinks he's got one ounce of talent?

I don't know how this hack keeps getting work and charming people who should KNOW better. I hope they don't call me for a reference because I will not be kind.
