Comic book artist Rob Liefeld blames Marvel over the fact that Deadpool 3 hasn’t happened yet.
When the first Deadpool film was released, it kind of blew everyone away with how good it was. The film was very well received by fans and critics, earning well over $780M worldwide and was the most successful X-Men related film to date. The second film, Deadpool 2, went on to be just as successful but was also released in the middle of the Disney acquisition of Fox, leaving many fans to wonder what was in store for the future of the franchise.
Since the acquisition both Disney and Ryan Reynolds have remained enthusiastic about the future of Deadpool in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, Marvel Studios has shown no indication as to when or if they will include the character in the shared movie universe as the MCU’s lineup seems pretty full at the moment. Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, however, has laid the blame fully on Marvel for why the third installment of the film series hasn’t happened yet.
While speaking to Comicbook.com, Rob Liefeld spoke about his own frustrations with Marvel over the lack of Deadpool in the movie world:
“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 Frank Frazetta was still around, you would say, ‘Frank paint for me.'”
