Deadpool Creator Rob Liefeld Praises the Film
A lot of praise for Deadpool has been coming out of a surprise screening for fans, which was held not too long ago. The fans went to Twitter, raving about the film's humor and violence. With this film already being my most anticipated film of the year, this only increases that excitement. But fans can nerdgasm all they want, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the movie is going to be great. But in a recent interview, the creator of Deadpool, Rob Liefeld, stated that he had seen the film, and he really likes it. I mean, really likes it. You can read his comments here.
"This is my second time seeing it and it was even better than the first time. That sounds like something Deadpool would say. But, here's the deal: twenty-five years worth of Deadpool. This movie comes out twenty-five years to the day we published him at Marvel and you couldn't get a better gift if you're a Deadpool fan and I have seen twenty-five years of stories come and go-- and Rhett (Reese) and Paul (Wernick) will tell you-- back in 2009 I freaked out when I read the screenplay because Deadpool has never ever been better than he was in that screenplay and when I saw this movie six weeks ago I was like 'How much of this script will carry?' and what (I) just saw is the best version of Deadpool I have ever experienced in my life."
Now, if someone involved in the film raves about the film, that's not something to take to heart. Remember, James Cameron raved about how great Terminator: Genisys was, and we all know how that turned out. But when I read Liefeld's comments, it feels genuine. It doesn't feel like he's just saying it because he's the creator of Deadpool; it feels like he actually loves this movie as much as he says he did. He took it to extremes that he didn't need to if he was just lying, like when he says this is the best Deadpool has ever been. I have a very strong feeling that Deadpool is going to end up being a very special film, and that it's going to surpass people's expectations. And what Liefeld says only furthers my thinking on that part.
