Rob Liefeld revealed that Marvel has no plans for the Deadpool franchise.
We might just need to give up our hopes on ever seeing Deadpool again on the big screen as creator Rob Liefeld reveals a third installment may no longer be happening.
Two days ago Liefeld had a conversation with Comic Book.com where he blatantly blamed Marvel for the delay of Deadpool.
I blame Marvel...blame Marvel that that hasn't happened yet. They are the reason it isn't happening. Whatever conundrum or it didn't fit into your master plan, just commission it. Okay, commission it. You know if [comic book artist] Frank Frazetta was still around, you would say, 'Frank paint for me.'
If Ryan isn’t making Deadpool 3 right now, that's because Marvel hasn't allowed it to be yet and that's all I'm saying. So, do I have a lot of faith in that system? Dude, I have no idea. So this is where I'm not that, I'm not giving you the answers you want. I'm like yeah, yeah. Look if it happens, terrific.
Now, Liefeld spoke to Inverse where he aired strong opinions against MCU and revealed that Marvel's big boss Kevin Feige has no plans for Deadpool.
When asked if there will be another Deadpool or X-Force movie, Liefeld responded with a disappointing but realist answer.
You know, I don't know... Here's what people don't want to hear, but thank God I'm a realist, I feel like Deadpool, the movies, they've set sail
He further commented on how we have become a culture that always looks forward to the next installments just because that is what companies are selling us.
We got two brilliant movies, and we live in a culture that always looks forward because all they're ever selling us is 'next, next, next, next. Yeah, you like that? Here's next! You like that? Here's next!'
I've told my kids, 'It's the fever! It's the fever!' ...For me, as the fever calms down, people just need to chill out and realize that Deadpool 1 and 2 were released within two years of each other, 2016 and 2018, and I just can't… I'm not really that crazy about Marvel's plan right now
Liefeld also seemed frustrated with Kevin Feige giving more focus on less popular characters such as Black Widow, Eternals, and Shang-Chi.
He shared that it was the first time he questioned Feige. He doubts that Feige has a plan for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and further talked about Marvel's prominent characters closing the doors with Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., and Black Widow saying goodbyes. He also pointed out that they almost lost Tom Holland to Sony.
Liefeld sarcastically clapped at Marvel saying, "But you're a genius. But Marvel, you're a genius. 'Okay, I think I like the Deadpool films, uh... I can't...'
Liefeld also added that he is not excited about Deadpool coming to Marvel.
Look, if they start making Deadpool today, it would come out in four years. I can't be excited about that. I think that is the answer [to the question]. I can't gloss it up and go, 'Oh! Yeah! Gee! Golly!'
Liefeld ended his talk with a revelation that Marvel has no plans for Deadpool.
You know what they have planned for Deadpool, right now? They got a goose egg. Zero. Zero. So enjoy the movies. Do what I do. I set myself up for all the haters.
"I'm living in the past, man. I'm just living in the past. Just do what I do " Liefeld said before showing a photo of Hugh Jackman mashed up as Wolverine / Deadpool.
The two Deadpool movies starring Ryan Reynolds grossed around $1.5 billion. The superhero's known for his R-rated antics which fans came to love.
