The 1 thing the Deadpool creator told Disney to put in Deadpool
Deadpool 3 has recently become the talk of the comic book movie community thanks to an internet-breaking update from actor Ryan Reynolds. The man behind Merck with a Mouth took on a new ad for the threequel, bringing a dream from Marvel fans for years to reality — Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine in Reynolds’ Deadpool for his MCU debut in the upcoming flick as will be included.
While two years are still in theaters until such an outing debuts, the hype is real as fans wait for Jackman’s Wolverine to join the MCU, even as his journey with Fox ended in 2017’s award-winning Logan . While it hasn’t been revealed which specific story Deadpool 3 will feature, especially with Hugh Jackman joining in, the chance to see him under the Marvel Studios umbrella has left a large group of fans eagerly awaiting the film’s release. doing.
At the front of the hype train for the film has been Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, who teased the Avengers-centric antics that Deadpool 3 could hold soon after San Diego Comic-Con 2022. Recently, Liefeld took the opportunity to share one thing. He really wanted to see that in Deadpool 3 – something that really came out.
Deadpool Creator on Deadpool 3 Desires
Speaking with ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis on the Phase Zero podcast, Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld shared one big thing he wanted to see in Marvel Studios’ Deadpool 3.
As it turns out, he “had a meeting with Disney” where he actually told them that Hugh Jackman needed to return as Wolverine in the threequel:
“So I had a meeting with Disney and they were brainstorming what I wanted. And Brandon, I’m so glad I have that email because I followed it up saying, ‘I’m going to get it in writing. I’m going to keep it.’ And [at the meeting] I said, ‘Look, what everyone wants is Hugh – Wolverine, Ryan – Deadpool, that’s it.’ I said, ‘This is as big as Endgame can be.’ I went there just because why not, why not just grow up, right?”
Then, “the day after the Disney meeting,” Liefeld heard from an inside friend that Jackman had officially signed on to play Wolverine in the Deadpool threequel. Even after telling Disney that this is what he wanted to see, he was as shocked as anyone to see “Wolverine is back:”
“The day after I met Disney, I had an industry friend, how crazy is this, an industry friend who has never been wrong and is powerful enough in the entertainment business, I can’t disclose the source. But he calls me and says is, ‘Man, Hugh’s signed in, Wolverine’s back. They’re doing it, Wolverine’s back.’
He said, ‘Don’t doubt me, don’t dare doubt me. I have called it off, the deal is done, they are done.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh crap’ because I’m like, ‘That’s it!’ I knew when they wanted to make the film and what kind of production they were aiming for, and all that information seems to be right on target. But nobody knew when they were going to announce it, right?”
Liefeld thrilled about Jackman’s casting in Deadpool 3
Even though there’s no guarantee that a character’s creator gets what happens on the big screen, it looks like Liefeld finally got what he wanted.
While Wolverine and (albeit a shortened version of) Deadpool have only been used on screen together for a full movie in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, their adventures in the comics reveal just how strong their relationship is as they go to war, and sometimes against each other. And with Liefeld bringing Deadpool to life in the comics, he’s sure the relationship will transfer beautifully to a big-screen setting within the MCU.
While Reynolds and Jackman have already teased some wild antics they’ll be engaged in when Deadpool 3 hits theaters, their real-life friendship continues to shine as the two fan-favorite X-Men portrayals fall under the umbrella of the MCU Marvel Studios. provides. Only time will tell what kind of mayhem this new R-rated romp will bring, but it appears Liefeld is as confident as ever that this was a good move on Disney’s part.
