Rob Liefeld's Extreme Universe Won't Be Made With Netflix After All


Last year, Netflix and comics creator Rob Liefeld seemingly arrived at a seven-figure deal to bring his Extreme Universe to the streaming service. Akiva Goldsman (Titans) was even reported as heading the writer's room for the series of films based on the comics universe. However, it appears that deal wasn't so final after all.

Liefeld made the announcement on Twitter, saying, "I get questions about [Netflix] all the time. After being at an impasse this summer, I took Extreme elsewhere for a better deal and fit. There is no Netflix deal. More soon enough."

It's unclear from Liefeld's tweet if he's already found a new deal for his Extreme Universe. However, he did specify in a later tweet that this would not affect the Prophet film, which was picked up by Studio 8 last year.

The deal was reportedly for a number of characters, including Brigade, Bloodstrike, Cybrid, Lethal, Re-Gex, Bloodwulf, Battlestone, Baboom and Nitro-Gen. However, the deal did not include some of his more famous independent creations, like Youngblood, Glory and Supreme. In some cases, those are due to rights issues surrounding the characters.
