Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld offered his take on what the cinematic future holds for the Merc with a Mouth and X-Force.
Before Disney acquired 20th Century Fox, the studio had plans to develop an X-Force film with director Drew Goddard in addition to continuing the Deadpool film series with Ryan Reynolds. However, the acquisition of the studio has left the cinematic future of Deadpool and the X-Force in a state of uncertainty considering the mature tone of the X-Men spin-offs do not exactly line-up with the family-friendly content of Disney.
However, Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld told Variety that he believes Deadpool 3 and X-Force will eventually move forward during an interview at the premiere of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. As Rob Liefeld explained, Deadpool 3 and X-Force are billion-dollar franchises, meaning it feels “inevitable” that Disney will find a way to continue both projects:
“I hope that they get together. Fans want it. Fans want to see it. I mean, look… the whole thing about Deadpool it’s… the culture moves so fast now that two years ago feels like twenty. But they were two R-rated movies that together made $1.2 billion. […] After the first weekend, I called Brian and I said, ‘it’s a billion-dollar franchise! It’s a billion-dollar franchise!’. You know, we were very excited. So, I think Deadpool 3 and X-Force, inevitable. I mean, c’mon. Josh Brolin, Ryan Reynolds, and now with Disney… how is that not the biggest thing.”
After creating Deadpool, Cable and other Marvel characters, Rob Liefeld famously left Marvel in the ’90s to form Image Comics. Years later, Rob Liefeld returned to Marvel and recently created the character Major X. Now, Rob Liefeld is taking a break from Marvel for the “foreseeable” future after hinting that he will take legal action against the company.
