    Why Rob Liefeld refused to have Cable included in the Deadpool movie

  • Liefeld, creator of Deadpool and Cable, chatted with Inverse about the insane amount of success the mid-budget, R-rated superhero flick has generated since opening a few months ago.
  • According to Liefeld, it all goes back to writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who crafted a wholly original story for Deadpool.
  • But, to do it, Liefeld insisted they keep Cable out of the cast list, to ensure Deadpool had every opportunity to shine on his own.
  • I get from everywhere, ‘Hey, Mr. Liefeld, do you know when the first appearance of Deadpool with Negasonic and Colossus is in the comics?’
  • ’”

    Though he wasn’t in Deadpool, the not-so-subtle after-credit scene confirmed Cable will be making his debut in the inevitable sequel.

    Film Review – Deadpool | The Sunday Leader

  • One of the most unique origin films to hit the theatres in the recent past, Deadpool certainly deserves its mass acclaim.
  • Directed by Tim Miller, the film’s all-star cast consists of Ryan Reynolds (Wade Williams/Deadpool),  Morena Baccarin (Vanessa), Ed Skrein (Francis Freeman/Ajax), T. J. Miller (Weasel), Gina Carano (Angel Dust), Brianna Hildebrand as (Negasonic Teenage Warhead), Stefan Kapičić (the voice of Colossus) and Leslie Uggams (Blind Al).
  • Deadpool is the eighth instalment of the X-Men series, and is perhaps the one of best written; Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have managed to maintain much of the original comic antihero’s dark humour and the story unfolds seamlessly, thanks to some slick editing and stylish CGI.
  • Deadpool is film that will induce strong reactions; those that love the comic book character and are able to stomach the gore, sexual themes and wicked humour will love it, while the more peace loving traditional minded will shun it and declare it a waste of time.
  • It is small wonder then that Deadpool is touted to by critics and fans as one of the best big-screen superhero origin stories of the recent past.

    Filled with scrawled jokes, obscene edits, and at least one drawing of a taco, the script page that debuted on movie blog JoBlo today is vintage Deadpool, complete with commentary that addresses both the film’s development and star Ryan Reynolds’ original on-screen debut as Wade Wilson in the much-maligned X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

  • “Tim, when are you going to admit that you leaked the test footage,” writes Deadpool in a note referencing the July 2014 clip directed by Tim Miller that was “leaked” online showcasing the intended tone of the film and featuring Reynolds’ providing a voiceover and motion-capture performance as the title character.
  • Directed by Miller from a script penned by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, Deadpool casts Reynolds as former Special Forces operative Wade Wilson, who agrees to undergo a mysterious treatment that — in addition to giving him superhuman powers — will cure the terminal illness that’s expected to cut his life short any day now.

    Deadpool writers on not going bigger, and how Cable fits into the inevitable sequel

  • Screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who wrote the first film and are reportedly working on the script for the follow-up, chatted with HitFix about the inevitable sequel.
  • After making some jokes about the film not technically being officially announced yet (Deadpool has made $750 million vs. a budget of $60 million, so there’s no doubt it’s getting a sequel), they started digging into what fans can expect.
  • As for fitting in Cable (the X-Men character teased in the post-credits scene), Reese said the sequel presents a ton of options, as Cable is a unique (more serious) foil for Deadpool.
  • We have our own ideas, Ryan has his ideas, and so much of the fun of writing Deadpool is the freedom, the freedom to break rules, the freedom to do crazy things, and I think the sequel probably provides even more opportunity than the first movie to do that…

    There’s a lot of fun in that he’s very serious and he does take on more serious weighty issues than Deadpool’s used to taking on, so I think there’s a juxtaposition there that can be fun.

  • We had a lot of fun with Colossus in the first movie, just by virtue of him being a foil to Deadpool, being a goody two-shoes and a straight shooter and Deadpool being irreverent.
