Of course Deadpool is going to have a post-credits scene. Did you think a movie that sets out to riff on every aspect of the average superhero film wasn’t going to take advantage of something that’s becoming just plain expected from every other comic book movie under the sun? The mostly positive early reviews have already indicated that this is a movie that tries to squeeze in as many jokes per minute as humanly possible, so why not take advantage of the end credits, a.k.a. more Joke Time?
But here’s the truth: Deadpool wouldn’t really be making fun of Marvel’s patented “insert more footage throughout the credits to keep ’em wanting more” approach unless it had two bonus scenes. So it does.

It’s hard to believe, but we’re just a little under three weeks away from finally see the Deadpool movie that fans were hoping to get for years. Ryan Reynolds is playing the version of the Merc with the Mouth that he should have been in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and fans who attended a couple of advanced screenings a few days ago had a lot of good things to say. Now the comic character’s creator, Rob Liefeld, has chimed in with his two cents on chimichanga champ, and he couldn’t be happier.
Plus, there’s also a Deadpool promotional video that has Ryan Reynolds helping to celebrate Australia Day. Though he does seem to take issue with Australia giving us Wolverine, or rather Hugh Jackman. Read More »

This Valentine’s Day weekend, you can choose between BDSM and spies. Next year, it’s a wisecracking superhero in a skin tight costume. Deadpool, directed by Tim Miller and based on the ultra popular mutant Marvel character, hits theaters one year from Thursday, February 12, 2016. Ryan Reynolds will play the character, a deadly assassin with superhuman healing abilities and a penchant for breaking the fourth wall. To tease fans on this milestone, Reynolds put up a photo from pre-production on the film and the charcter’s creator, Rob Liefeld, offered up a few teases too. Check out the Ryan Reynolds Deadpool tweet and more below. Read More »
There are almost two dozen superhero movies scheduled in the next four years. Not all of them will happen, but even that tentative schedule shows Hollywood’s massive continued commitment to the genre that continually brings in hundreds of millions of dollars for studios like Disney, Sony and 20th Century Fox.
That’s a stark contrast to a decade ago when comic creator Rob Liefeld took at meeting at Paramount. Liefeld was pitching a film based on his Image Comic Youngblood, and was told by then president of the studio John Goldwyn that the superehero genre was a fad.
Below, read Liefeld’s account of the meeting where the head of one of the most famous movie studios in the world missed the mark so completely. Read More »

Thirteen years after the first X-Men, the film series is still going strong with a fifth installment (X-Men: Days of Future Past) due out next year. But Fox hasn’t had much luck expanding that world outward. The only spinoff released so far, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, made OK money but earned dreadful reviews. James Mangold’s The Wolverine looks more promising, thankfully, but we won’t know how things shake out for another few weeks.
With Mark Millar now on board to oversee Fox’s X-Men universe, though, the studio seems to be getting more ambitious. Comic book creator Rob Liefeld has now confirmed that an X-Force movie is in development at the studio. “In development” is still several steps away from “in production,” let alone “in theaters,” but it’s a start. Hit the jump for all the details.
Update: Info came fast on this one. Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow has been announced as the screenwriter and possible director.

For decades, comic artist and writer Rob Liefeld has plied his trade crafting stories of women with rubber spines and men with elastic physiques who love pouches and violence, and have no use for feet.
Liefeld co-created the character Deadpool, played by Ryan Reynolds in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and has been lobbying to push forward Fox’s standalone film starring the character. But he’s also got other film projects brewing, and the latest is a Gods-as-Avengers style thing called — wait for it — Godyssey. Read More »
