What in the hell is this!? A tweet from Deadpool's creator Rob Liefeld gives gives us the vibe that the Deadpool spin-off film is in trouble. As you know Ryan Reynolds has been very excited and heavily involved with the Deadpool film production, now it looks like Warner Bros doesn't want him involved because he's playing The Green Lantern! Here's what Liefeld tweeted,
Warner Bros. just trying to protect their investment. They don't want Ryan Reynolds playing Deadpool AND Green Lantern. Interesting 2 watch
Now, back to my first statement... what in the hell is this!? Reynolds involvement is the only reason I have any interest in seeing this Deadpool film brought to life, because if it wasn't for him Fox would end up screwing it up. Who would have thought Warners Bros. would be the problem in this situation. I really hope these discussions aren't really happening at the WB right now. If so, someone needs to pull their head out of their ass and let him do Deadpool!
What are your thoughts on this madness?
Here's a quick update from Rob Liefeld clarifying the whole Fox, Green Lantern, Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds situation. In response to our post he came back and responded via twitter saying,
You have it reversed @GeekTyrant it's Warners that wants to film back 2 back GL's and disrupt Deadpool. Not FOX!! Get it right!
Well crap! This still sucks! Warner Bros is looking to jump in and make a Green Lantern sequel quickly, which will effect the Deadpool movie. Come on Warner Bros! Let Reynolds do Deadpool first!
