Studio 8 has acquired the film rights to Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld’s “Prophet,” his 1992 comic about a WW2 DNA-enhanced super soldier who is dubbed “the anti-Captain America”.
In the comics, John Prophet awakens in our time after being put in cryogenic freeze for a future mission. Unfortunately, he was not supposed to wake until years down the road and now he’s a fish out of water.
The title was re-launched in 2012 with the character flung into the far future. Liefeld, Adrian Askarieh, and Brooklyn Weaver will produce the film version which will stick with the original take.
