Fans wanted a Deadpool movie, and now we are given confirmation from artist Rob Liefeld that this is happening and lets us know what he has seen.
This is what Liefeld and Scott Lobdell had to say about Deadpool at their panel at during the Amazing Arizona Comic Con last weekend. (via Bleeding Cool):
“They’ve got a great director on the movie, they’ve got a great script. I may or may have not seen some sort of test of footage that would blow your mind if you saw it and go holy crap and that’s Deadpool in costume. Katana swords, guns, shooting people’s faces off and making me laugh. And I may or may not have seen something that looks just like that. And you’ve got what would amount to the first R-rated X-Men movie. Because that script is R-rated.
They may or may not have wanted to shoot eight minutes to see how it would play. And all I can tell you, it’s close. It’s closer that it’s even been to going, or going Naaah, that’s too scary a proposition to make an R-rated Deadpool movie.”
Below is the video shot of him speaking at the panel is below. It’s a very good sign and also encouraging to know that they are putting the effort to provide the Deadpool that fans know rather than what we got from Wolverine Origins.
