Deadpool Creator Rob Liefeld Would Love More X-Men Theme Park Attractions

Rob Liefeld RideThe new Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout! attraction at Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim, CA just opened last weekend and has already amassed lines lasting 5 hours on average. The success of this new attraction has sparked excitement from  Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld – who wants to see some theme park attractions based on the X-Men characters.

On his official Twitter account, Liefeld expressed his happiness that Marvel’s mainstream appeal has expanded from the big screen to Disney theme parks:

Liefeld also discussed that he would love to see some theme park attraction featuring the X-Men. But given the fact that FOX has the rights to those characters for both film and television, creating attractions featuring the mutants may be difficult:

Interestingly enough, there is an X-Men attraction at Universal’s Islands of Adventure Park in Orlando, FL. The attraction is Storm Force Accelatron – which is a tea cup-style spinner attraction. Unfortunately, that’s as far as it goes for mutant-based theme park rides.

If you were to ask me, the ideal Deadpool attraction would be similar to The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man, which is also located at Universal’s Islands of Adventure Park. The Spider-Man attraction has been widely-regarded as one of the most impressive theme park attractions in the world due to the technological innovations as well as the incredible use of Spidey and his rogue’s gallery of villains.

Imagine a Deadpool attraction with similar sensibilities. I can already envision seeing him engage with guests as they embark on an adventure with him that eventually goes horribly wrong but would you like to see more theme park attractions featuring X-Men characters? If so, what kinds of attractions would you like to see? Sound off in the comments below.

Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout! is now open at Disney California Adventure Park.

5 Essential Cable Stories To Read Before His Debut In ‘Deadpool 2’

Deadpool 2
Now that it’s official Josh Brolin will be suiting up as Cable in Deadpool 2, it’s time for everyone to get a crash course on the character so they can say “that’s not how it happened in the comic” when they see the movie with their friends.

Nathan Summers, the future son of Cyclops and Jean Grey, first debuted in 1986, but he didn’t make his full debut as Cable until 1990. Rob Liefeld designed him to be a leader more prone to take action than Xavier and that character trait has persisted throughout his long history. Cable has fought alongside the X-Men in the past as well as fought for mutants survival against the government in a dark future.

Cable is the straight-man to Deadpool’s goofball and I can’t wait to see the two of them come together next year in Deadpool 2. Hopefully Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin have the chemistry to bring this legendary bro-mance to the bigscreen, otherwise Fox will be hearing from a lot of angry fans.
