Rob Liefeld To Hold ‘Deadpool 2’ Release Celebrations & Screenings

Deadpool 2 is releasing next month, and fans are already buying their tickets for opening night. The only thing more exciting than seeing the film upon its release is seeing it with the creator of the character, Rob Liefeld. Fans in Los Angeles area can now do exactly that. Liefeld will be holding screenings for Deadpool 2 as well as Deadpool Day X-Force X-Travaganza, a celebration of the film’s release.

Liefeld released an official statement showing he’s every bit as excited for Deadpool 2 as the fans:

“I can’t wait for everyone to experience all my creations up on the screen together for the first time! The first movie was big, but this is even bigger!! Ryan, Zazie and Josh embody Deadpool, Domino and Cable so perfectly. What better way to see it experience it than seeing it with the man who created them all and then continuing the celebration at an exclusive FREE event!!”

Screenings will be held at Frank and Sons in City of Industry on May 17th and 18th. Deadpool Day X-Force X-Travaganza is on the 19th. The free event will feature “appearances from special guests from the movie and comic book artists across Deadpool, Cable, Domino and X-Force titles.” There will also be signings and collectibles available for purchase. This sounds like an event that Deadpool fans will not want to miss. So, buy your tickets to the screenings at Liefeld’s website when they go on sale tomorrow.

Will you be heading to the event? Let us know down in the comments! Here’s the official synopsis for Deadpool 2:

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

Directed by David Leitch, the film stars Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson/Deadpool, Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Nathan Summers/Cable, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stefan Kapcic as Piotr Rasputin/Colossus, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlysle, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al,  and Karan Soni as Dopinder. Julian Dennison, Jack Kesy and Shioli Kutsuna join the cast in undisclosed roles.

Deadpool 2 is scheduled to be released in theaters on May 18, 2018.

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

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.
