Rob Liefeld Is Confident About Deadpool's Post-Disney Future

ComicBook - 05-09


Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld told during a recent interview that he is not worried that his R-rated, ultraviolent merc with a mouth is going to have a hard time fitting in at 20th Century Fox's new parent company, the family-friendly Walt Disney Corporation. In the time since the Disney/Fox merger has been a rumor, the billion-dollar Deadpool film franchise came up again and again, with Disney always expressing excitement. Marvel Studios, who have yet to have an R-rated film at Disney, will presumably be taking over the X-Men properties, Deadpool included, and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has said, basically, "if it ain't broke don't fix it."
