Could Cable arrive on the big screen?
X-Men Films reports that 20th Century Fox has registered a website for an X-Force movie at X-ForceMovie.com. This is usually how future X-Men film titles get leaked.
X-Force focuses on a superhero team of mutants led by Cable, Cyclop's son from the future. It has a slightly different and more mature tone than the X-Men. X-Force co-creator Rob Liefeld and producer Lauren Shuler Donner previously hinted at Cable making an appearance in the film series.
Marvel consultant Mark Millar also hinted at it last year. He said: "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."
