Deadpool Creator Compares DEADPOOL 2 to ALIENS
In the world of cinema, sequels to great films are often compared to other sequels of great films.
Yesterday, Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld continued this trend. In an interview with THR, Liefeld compared Deadpool 2 to another beloved sequel: James Cameron’s Aliens.
“Deadpool was Alien. It’s brilliant. It completely works. It’s a masterpiece. Deadpool 2 is Aliens. It’s when James Cameron came in and said, “OK you want me to do this? We’re going to make it bigger, put in loads more action.”
That’s definitely setting the bar high, as if it wasn’t set high enough already. Like Alien is a classic in its genre, the first Deadpool is considered by many to be a classic in the comic book movie genre. Liefeld comparing the upcoming sequel to Cameron’s Aliens is an interesting one to be sure. Will we get the Deadpool equivalent of the “Game over, man. Game Over!” scene?
If yesterday’s trailer is any indication, the film is going for the “go big or go home” look with more action set pieces than its predecessor – which did have a smaller budget. Will this approach pay off? We’ll find out in just three months.
The David Leitch-directed film stars Ryan Reynolds, John Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Leslie Uggams, Brianna Hildebrand, Zazie Beetz and TJ Miller.
Deadpool 2 slashes its way into theaters on May 18.

One thought on “Deadpool Creator Compares DEADPOOL 2 to ALIENS”
Ugh. He’s such a jerk and truly a crap artist. I’ve actually met him at San Diego Comic Con (back when they were still about comics) and he’s so rude to fans. Maybe his comment will turn out to be true in some regards, but I don’t like anything that comes out of his mouth. Cynicism aside, I’m very amped for Deadpool 2. Looks like loads of fun.
