While Rob Liefeld has been playing up all the Deadpool news, what he has been very quiet on is the news that Avengelyne is headed to the big screen.
First published in 1995 by Liefeld — who co-created X-Force, Cable and Deadpool for Marvel before leaving with several other artists to form Image Comics during the early 1990s – Avengelyne and its subsequent miniseries told of a fallen angel cast to Earth. Her mission is to find and protect “the one,” a person who holds the key to saving mankind from demons and other monsters.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, MMA fighter/actress Gina Carano has been cast to play the title character and is working with Liefeld on the project. It looks like the search for a writer or writer-director begins next week.
If you are at the San Diego Comic-Con, look for more word coming from the duo on Saturday when they are scheduled to sign posters together.
