Deadpool's creator is mourning the loss of Glover's animated show.
The Deadpool movies are a shining light in the comic movie era. They are films that don't take themselves too seriously but still command your attention. Ryan Reynolds brought the Merc' with the Mouth to life in the films, but Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza were the men who created the mutant assassin in 1991. Deadpool spent some time jumping around in the pages of The New Mutants, the X-Men's younger counterparts, before being granted his own series years later. Deadpool was created as a straight rip off DC Comics characters Deathstroke (Deadpool is Wade Wilson, Deathstroke is Slade Wilson) but he eclipsed his DC counterpart in popularity and fame mainly due to his fourth wall breaking personality and adult humor.
Rob Liefeld was on the red carpet for the premiere of Marvel's Ant-Man and The Wasp in Hollywood on Monday night, and he briefly spoke with Variety about Donald Glover's animated Deadpool series, which was canceled before it came to fruition. “I thought the whole thing was brilliant. And I really can’t say anything more than that or I’ll get into all sorts of trouble from every side," he began.
“But I mean, I mourn the loss of that entire project," he continued. "Donald is a genius, and I’ll always wonder how that would have worked out. But Marvel says: ‘Rob, good things are coming.’ And good things have always come, so I’m gonna believe them and hang on for dear life.”
