Comic writers Rob Liefeld and Scott Lobdell showed up at the Arizona Comic Con last weekend and according to Bleeding Cool they dropped a surprising bit of news about Fox’s proposed R-rated X-Men spinoff comic book adaptation “Deadpool”.
“They’ve got a great director on the movie, they’ve got a great script. I may or may have not seen some sort of test of footage that would blow your mind if you saw it and go holy crap and that’s Deadpool in costume. Katana swords, guns, shooting people’s faces off and making me laugh” says Liefield about the project which still has Ryan Reynolds attached to reprise the role and Tim Miller slated to direct.
Liefield goes on to say “I may or may not have seen something that looks just like that. And you’ve got what would amount to the first R-rated X-Men movie. Because that script is R-rated… They may or may not have wanted to shoot eight minutes to see how it would play. And all I can tell you, it’s close. it’s closer that it’s even been to going, or going Naaah, that’s too scary a proposition to make an R-rated Deadpool movie.”
