Rob Liefeld on Comic-Con, Writing Screenplays, Josh Brolin as Cable and More

     July 27, 2017

Rob Liefeld, the co-creator of Deadpool and plenty of other comics, was on hand at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, and our own Steve Weintraub got the chance to sit down and talk with him about a variety of subjects.

During their conversation, they talked about partnering with us for the IMAX screening of Deadpool, what it’s like for him to attend Comic-Con, if he sells his original artwork, the progress he’s making in adapting his fallen angel story Evangline, his thoughts on Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2, moving into writing screenplays, his take on Ben Affleck as Batman, and much more. He also tells a very cool story about how winning the Inkpot Award several years ago has provided him with a special card that gets him and his family into Comic-Con every year.
