Prophet: Liefeld reveals how the film will surprise fans
The Prophet film is still a long way off, the script has in fact remained unfinished due to the advent of the coronavirus pandemic. Homeless of the Second World War the protagonist, John Prophet will be subjected to experiments by a scientist from the future, which will make him a super soldier. The scientist, Horatio Wells, with the task of creating a living weapon for evil, will mistakenly give Prophet a strong faith in God and a noble mission.

The creator Rob Liefeld was however satisfied with the work done so far and the pages that Marc Guggenheim, co-creator of Arrow, sent him during the lockdown. The news that Guggenheim and Liefeld were collaborating on the writing of the Prophet script was made public before the pandemic and, in the month of May, both authors commented on how happy and excited they were to collaborate in creating this project. During the San Diego Comic-Con @Home Liefeld, in an interview released on Comicbook.com (which you can read here) he revealed a small preview, responding to what makes Prophet special in a television and cinema panorama now crowded with superheroes.

According to the author, the enthusiasm is primarily due to the fact that there are no films based on works by Image Comics since 1997, when Spawn, Mark AZ's film, was released Dippé based on the comic of the same name created by Todd McFarlane.

Studio 8 , which is funding the project Prophet, he would have contacted Marc Guggenheim, knowing the enthusiasm that this would trigger both Liefeld is in the agencies, that in fact they would have proposed their best writers to participate in the project. According to what was stated by Liefeld, Guggenheim would have then got the job proving to be the best candidate among a multitude of proposals, having a curriculum of eight excellent seasons of Arrow and a deep knowledge of comic books and movies.

According to Liefeld, the real strength of the products Image Comics would lie in a component is strongly visual, the side that Marc Guggenheim would have developed in depth in this film, as well as the characterization of the characters. Although it is based on Captain America , John Prophet would be much more similar to the protagonist of Rip Van Winkle , short story written by Washington Irving in 1819 , with the difference that John Prophet, before falling asleep, was not a good man.

The author has also commented on how Arrow has been created entirely by the vision of the Guggenheim and as he is given little credit in relation to other works, such as Legends of Tomorrow, or Flash, although there are later works. To produce Prophet will be Adrian Askarieh (Hitman: Agent 47), Brooklyn Weaver (Run All Night – A night to survive) and the same Liefeld, together with John Hyde and Terissa Kelton . There are currently no forecast on when the production of the Prophet will resume.
