'Deadpool' Creator Rob Liefeld Reveals 'X-Force' Character That Almost Appeared In Film

By Matt O'Bryant

With only only a few days to go until the release of Deadpool, one of the most highly anticipated Comic book films in recent memory. We know that the film is going to feature a lot of cool X-Men, as we have all seen from the trailers and promotional materials. But there is another cool ass character that was going appear in the film early on, but was eventually scrapped because of budget concerns. Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld has now revealed that the character Garrison Kane who was an early member of the X-Force and has a long history with Deadpool was originally going to play a substantial role in the film. Here what he had to below:

In this film he would’ve been another product of “the workshop.” So another enhanced mutant that we introduced to further Deadpool’s connection to the Department K Weapon X program, which in this movie you know as “the workshop”.

Kane had huge set pieces, but to get an R rating the budget was revised and not everything survived. I saw some of the models they had made for Kane, and he would’ve been very expensive. He had all these cybernetic limbs that expand and turn into guns. His hand flies off and coils. He’s an X-Force character and he has a history with Deadpool. There’s a lot of animosity there [between the two characters]. But it’s cool – Kane will just go back into the box for another time.

Pretty awesome right? How badass would it have been if Garrison Kane had shown up in the Deadpool movie. Hopefully we do get to see him in another X-Men property somewhere down the line. Sound off in the comments with your thoughts on what could have been?

Deadpool hits theaters this Friday.
