Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld has taken on a new role as a hype man for the upcoming Deadpool 2. The veteran comic book writer and artist recently spoke with our own Joseph Jammer Medina, and implied when it comes to the Deadpool sequel, we haven’t seen anything yet.
“There is a whole s**t-ton that you haven’t seen, and that you’re not going to see [before the movie hits], and it is to Ryan and Fox’s credit that they are keeping it all hidden from you. They continue to peel slight layers away. Get ready, because it’s going to blow you away, and I would not not be this confident if I did not know better.”

Liefeld sounds reminiscent of a fanboy that got exclusive early access to the film, and I absolutely love that enthusiasm. Deadpool has an attribute other comic book characters do not, his personality allows him to take on these sort of random roles (ex: Good Housekeeping) and keep the viewer entertained without ever throwing a punch. This makes it easier, as Liefeld said, to keep most of the good stuff locked away until the movie premieres.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the marketing campaign for Deadpool 2. While it has mostly been just Deadpool playing around, it has been fun. Now with the film being so close, the layers, as Liefeld mentioned, are being slowly peeled away. A recent trailer gave us our first look at Josh Brolin’s Cable in action, along with another hilarious Deadpool skit. It also featured old friends and a new ally.
