Liefeld, who created the fan-favourite character in 1991, said: ”I am absolutely beyond thrilled that Deadpool has been officially announced!
"I’m thrilled for Tim Miller, Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and Ryan Reynolds as well as all the guys at Blur Studio! This is a tremendous achievement for them! Rhett and Paul wrote a brilliant, and I don’t throw that word around loosely, a brilliant script!"
