‘Deadpool’ Creator Rob Liefeld Predicts ‘Bright’ Future After The Disney/Fox Deal

Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld shared his predictions on the Merc with a Mouth’s Cinematic future after the deal between Disney and 21st Century Fox closes.

Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets is set to close next week and while most fans are excited to see what the future holds for the MCU after Marvel regains the film rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four, others are concerned that family-friendly Disney brand will prevent future Deadpool movies from retaining their R-rated content. However, while noting that he has not been invited to meetings on the matter, Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld predicted that the Disney will use the Regenerating Degenerate in both PG-13 and R-rated projects:

“I believe Deadpool’s future is BRIGHT. If I had to predict, venture a GUESS, just a guess…DP will appear in pg-13 Marvel films on a limited basis, interacting with Marvel pals while retaining his own R rated film franchise releases under the Fox banner. Those shenanigans with Vanessa can’t be released under that Disney Castle banner, y’know?? We will all find out soon enough. A 10 year old Deadpool action figure was the best selling single toy of 2018 for Marvel. You can’t make this stuff up! DP for life or longer!!

This illustration from the @latimes depicting the treasure trove of the pop culture icons that will be in Disney’s possession jumped out to me for numerous reasons. It’s a pinch me moment for certain. You guys ask me about Deadpool’s future on film all the time and while Bob Iger is a really nice guy, seriously, he is the nicest man, I’m not invited to the board room for all the obvious reasons. However, I believe Deadpool’s future is BRIGHT. If I had to predict, venture a GUESS, just a guess…DP will appear in pg-13 Marvel films on a limited basis, interacting with Marvel pals while retaining his own R rated film franchise releases under the Fox banner. Those shenanigans with Vanessa can’t be released under that Disney Castle banner, y’know?? We will all find out soon enough.

Avengers Endgame Marvel_Studios_Captain America Chris EvansToday, Marvel Studios released the first official trailer for Avengers: Endgame and revealed which heroes will likely be on hand for the re-match against Thanos.

Avengers: Infinity War united nearly every hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the showdown with Thanos and after a decade of films that proved to be an extensive roster. However, the Marvel Studios epic concluded with Thanos succeeding in his mission to acquire the Infinity Stones and use their power to erase half of the universe's population, with many of the aforementioned heroes being included among the casualties. Fortunately, the original Avengers teammates survived Thanos' decimation and it appears they will be joined by a few the new heroes who debuted since the group initially formed when they head into the second showdown with Thanos.

Iron ManAvengers Endgame Robert Downey Jr. Iron ManAfter being spared by Thanos, Tony Stark can be seen adrift in space with limited supplies and oxygen. Although Nebula appears to be with him, the unlikely companions seem to be lost with little chance of being rescued, though it is hard to imagine that Stark will spend most of what could be his final adventure away from the action.

Captain America

Captain America Avengers Endgame Winter SoldierThe First Avenger will unsurprisingly return for the conclusion of the first decade of Marvel Studios stories and he is determined to undo Thanos' decimation. Of course, many fans are concerned that reversing the decimation could come at a great cost for Captain America considering Chris Evans' contract expired with Avengers: Endgame.

Black Widow

Avengers Endgame Black Widow Marvel StudiosNatasha Romanoff, a.k.a Black Widow, returns for Avengers: Endgame and it appears she's been assessing the consequences of Thanos' actions. Standing by Captain America's side as they head to attempt to reverse the decimation, Black Widow seems confident that their plan cannot fail.

Thor

Avengers Endgame Chris Hemsworth Thor MarvelAlthough Thor nearly defeated Thanos by stabbing through the chest with Stormbreaker, The Mad Titan had enough energy left to use the Infinity Stones to heal himself while erasing 50% of the population in the universe. Now, a contemplative Thor can be seen in the Avengers: Endgame trailer and one can't fault him for reflecting on the fact that victory was almost in his grasp.

Nebula

Avengers Endgame Nebula Marvel StudiosNebula and Rocket Raccoon were the only Guardians of the Galaxy characters to survive Thanos' wrath, with former being left alone on Titan with Tony Stark. With the film expected to conclude Thanos' and Nebula having more reason than most to see the Mad Titan brought to justice, fans are hoping she will have an extensive role Avengers: Endgame.

Ronin

Avengers Endgame Hawkeye RoninThe new trailer also confirmed that Hawkeye will assume the Ronin mantle when he returns and the death of family is the likely reason for his new identity. It appears Natasha will attempt to recruit her old friend when they embark on a mission to defeat Thanos, but whether or not Hawkeye agreed to join them remains to be seen.

Ant-Man

Avengers Endgame Scott Lang Ant-Man Paul Rudd Marvel Studios

After the mid-credits scene for Ant-Man and the Wasp, many were theorizing that the Avengers would have to rescue Scott Lang from the Quantum Realm and subsequently use the alternate dimension to travel back in time to defeat Thanos. While it appears Scott Lang managed to escape on his own, he may have brought the van containing the way to the Quantum Realm to the Avengers' front door.

Bruce Banner

Avengers Endgame Marvel Studios Spider-Man

While the Hulk was absent from the first Avengers: Endgame trailer, Bruce Banner managed to make a brief appearance. The brilliant scientist could be seen assessing the list of casualties of Thanos' decimation and it has clearly taken an emotional toll.
