Thanks in part to the success of the movie Deadpool, the agreement is being reported to be somewhere in the seven figures. Liefeld had this to say about the big news,
“Over the past nearly 25 years, since launching Image Comics, I’ve been lucky enough to see the power of these stories and characters as they’ve resonated with several generations of comic book fans. To now be able to work with Akiva Goldsman and Graham King, who are powerhouses in their own right, to bring these compelling characters and conflicts to life on the big screen is nothing short of a dream come true!”
By now, if you knew nothing about them, you’ve already Google searched Youngblood and Brigade. And if you’ve said to yourself, “These toons look like characters from the Marvel Universe,” it’s because Liefeld and friends came over from Marvel to create Image comics. So it’s no surprise that many of the characters look familiar. Still, the stories are their own, and could be what will bring the possible movie franchise success.
