It’s going to be a little while before we see the first trailer for Deadpool 2. In the meantime, if you’ve already breezed through the Merc With the Mouth’s special holiday issue of Good Housekeeping (no, seriously; it’s a thing), then you’re probably itching for more Deadpool content. Thankfully, there’s a pretty awesome new photo from the set of the upcoming sequel. And if you’re a comic book fan, you’ll particularly appreciate this one.
To say that Deadpool was a box-office hit is slightly understating things, so it’s no surprise that that execs are hoping to get into business with the man behind the Merc With a Mouth, Rob Liefeld — well, one exec, specifically: Akiva Goldsman. After securing the rights to develop (and possibly direct) an adaptation of Liefeld’s Avengelyne series, Goldsman has acquired rights to another Liefeld property, and this time his plans are a bit more ambitious.
Following the massive success of Deadpool (the movie), you’d think studios would be rushing to get in business with the creator of Deadpool (the comic) — seeing as Rob Liefeld has a few other comic-book creations that could make for decent films in the right hands. It seems at least one studio has caught on, as Paramount and Akiva Goldsman are teaming up to produce a film adaptation of Liefeld’s Avengelyne series.
