While everyone is going from excited to apprehensive about the Deadpool movie, Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld has been throwing petrol on the flames at Comikaze over the weekend.
Could the Merc with the mouth have company in the movie? Well, Liefeld says that yes, it’s possible that another X-Favourite – Cable – may put in an appearance but he’s not keen on the idea: “Following Wolverine, the Donners called me into their office and said, ‘Rob, we want to meet and talk to you about Deadpool, since we’re spinning it off. We know we made some missteps, and we want to get it right.’ So I sat there with a bunch of producers, and we sat for several hours, and we talked about different ideas. And I tried to steer them in directions I think.
“For instance, I’ll tell you, first question they said, ‘Rob, does Cable need to be in the Deadpool movie?’ And I said, ‘No, Deadpool deserves his own function and Cable should come in in his own movie.’ And they were like, ‘Ok, because we were thinking about…’ And I was like, ‘No, you can do them both separately. They don’t need to be in the same movie.’ Look, we had a long talk, we had some ideas, I can’t share them, some of them made it across the finish line.”
Whatever happens, Liefeld is positive Cable IS coming, sooner or later: “Cable is awesome. And he will…when he appears on screen, we’re all going to nerdgasm, because he’s coming. They can’t hold him back. He’s coming.”
