Rob Liefield Responds Positively About Deadpool Film. Despite many fans giving up hope for a Deadpool movie, co-creator Rob Liefeld remained positive that Wade Wilson would get to the big screen someday and he was right once Fox announced the release date.
Newsarama spoke with Rob Liefeld about what was running through his mind after Fox announced that the Merc with a Mouth would finally get a release date, which is only less than two years away. Here’s what the co-creator had to say about his character getting his own film:
I am absolutely beyond thrilled that Deadpool has been officially announced! I’m thrilled for Tim Miller, Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and Ryan Reynolds as well as all the guys at Blur Studio! This is a tremendous achievement for them! Rhett and Paul wrote a brilliant, and I don’t throw that word around loosely, a brilliant script! Audiences are going to go on the ride of their collective lives with this film as they envisioned it! Tim Miller is a genius; he is brilliant as everyone who witnessed the leaked footage witnessed! There is so much more to come! Deadpool fans will freak out when they see all that Tim and the boys have in store for them! This is a huge triumph for all the fans that supported my work on New Mutants, X-Force over the years! The fans deserve this amazing gift from filmmakers who have proven they have what the fans desire! Very exciting! I know where me and a gazillion fans will be on February 12th, 2016!
