Rob Liefeld is Really, Really Excited about the Deadpool Movie

10 Comments

Twitter by itself is somewhat retarded, but Twitter with celebrities is great stuff. Reading goofy tweets from celebrities seems to make the whole thing worthwhile, though. Take Rob Liefeld, one of the creators of the Deadpool character (he drew it, but really, Fabian Nicieza was the one who really gave the character his “voice” — or, er, word balloons), who was recently in a meeting on the upcoming “Deadpool” movie set to star Ryan Reynolds.

Here are a series of tweets by Liefeld from that meeting:

Walking into Deadpool movie meeting!!! Yowza!

Great Deadpool movie meeting! Lauren Schuler Donner and her team are headed in the right direction!

Deadpool movie checklist- DP in costume-check! Breaking 4th wall-check! Loads of killing-double check!

Deadpool movie- YES! Ryan Reynolds is on board!!!

Then Liefeld dropped this, which got all the geeks excited:

Also excited to discuss possibilities of Cable in future X-films!!!

Of course, after all the sites ran with that last one about Cable, Rob had to clarify (premature tweeting strikes again):

Clarification, Cable definitely NOT in Deadpool movie, but possible role in future X-films….not First Class.

So there you have it, news on the “Deadpool” movie and the future of “Cable” from the fingers of Rob Liefeld himself.

This is Cable. Contrary to popular belief, he does not get ESPN.

    He shouldn’t be involved. He came up with the design but most of the things that made Deadpool what he is was added later by other writers long after he left. Otherwise, he would have been another 2nd rate villan in the Marvel Universe.

      Exactly. His dialogue is what made him stand out and theat was Fabian Nicezca at first. But Yeah you’r right. The look has also evolved alot since his first appearance.
