Deadpool Co-Creator Tears FOX a New A**hole

Ever since the whole leaked script distribution lawsuit debacle, FOX has been catching some major heat from pissed off fans. Many have vowed to never watch anything from FOX that is not illegally downloaded. Even Deadpool fans have gone as far to say that they will not support the movie due to FOX’s recent actions. One person that has been especially vocal about the situation, as well as FOX’s general track record with Superhero movies, is Deadpool co-creator Robert Liefeld.

Recently the comic book artist has been venting his rage publicly on twitter.

Dear FOX studios, get your act together. Deadpool is not Green Lantern, not a family film. DP is “filthy” think Expendables $ w/ RR

Also FOX, find your balls and film the script from Rheese[sic] and Wernick. You will make loads of money and thank yourself later.

Dear FOX, these five will show up and slice your nutz if you screw DP up! http://twitpic.com/3c8ym2

FOX is always worrisome to me @JStud Not exactly the greatest track record. DP is in their hands.

It boils down to this, Ryan Reynolds, Mr. Sexiest Man alive paired with best comic script ever written, no-brainer….make Deadpool happen!

43 is the new 72 for me….i just speak my mind and don’t give a crap….grumpy old Liefeld.

My favorite part of the Deadpool script…um….EVERYTHING. Perfection.

His statements seem definitely on par with everyone else. We can only hope that FOX is listening and will take note of what fans want.

Extra Tidbit: Robert Liefeld has been criticized numerous times for ripping off DC’s Deathstroke (Slade Wilson) to create Deadpool. In Superman/Batman Annual #1, written by former Deadpool author Joe Kelly, Deathstroke from the antimatter universe appears and has similar characteristics to Deadpool (such as Deadpool’s “merc with a mouth” wisecracks, and a black spot on his mask over his eye somewhat resembling Deadpool’s). While this character did not seem to be as skilled at fighting as Deathstroke, his healing factor seemed far more effective and Slade becoming annoyed at how hard he was to kill.
