Rob Liefeld, Akiva Goldsman Form Unholy, ‘Extreme’ Movie Universe

Notably poor comic book artist Rob Liefeld and fabulously unremarkable screenwriter Akiva Goldsman are teaming up. Finally!

According to Variety, the writer of Batman & Robin and a penciller of absurd anatomy are partnering to create a film franchise centered around Liefeld’s “Extreme Universe.” It’s a so-called “universe” that has ’90s x-tremism overflowing from its many, many pouches, and it includes almost 100 characters seemingly named by a 12-year-old—among them, Bloodstrike, Brigade, Lethal, Re-Gex, Cybrid, Bloodwulf, Battlestone, Kaboom, and Nitro-Gen. Goldsman will—as he did for the similarly dated, juvenile Transformers brand—oversee a writers’ room that will plan out this unfortunate development. Perhaps, together, they can all sort out how to not have to show feet too often.
