Exclusive: See How Deadpool Creator Rob Liefeld Reacted to the 'Deadpool' Comic-Con Trailer

One of our Comic-Con predictions was that the upcoming superhero movie Deadpool would steal the show and whaddya know -- it stole the show. As part of 20th Century Fox's presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, Ryan Reynolds and the cast of Deadpool (in theaters this February) stole some thunder from bigger movies like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and X-Men: Apocalypse when they dropped the first hilariously filthy and violent trailer for the movie.

Not only did the crowd of 6,500 fans go nuts for it -- giving this rare R-rated superhero movie the loudest and longest standing ovation of any film that had a presence in Hall H this year -- but they loved it so much that they began chanting for Comic-Con to show it a second time. And though panel host Chris Hardwicke didn't have the power to show it again, he demanded it happen and it did. 

Here's a tiny peek at how the crowd reacted to the trailer.


What the shit! Deadpool trailer just broke Hall H. Massive standing-o! #sdcc

Following the panel, Fandango had the exclusive opportunity to speak to the man who created Deadpool, comics legend Robert Liefeld. What did the guy who created the character think of that trailer and the fan reception? You gotta watch this.



Another fun bit of info is that Liefeld has a cameo in the movie, as does Stan Lee. Additionally, he told us off camera that the trailer is expected to drop in about three weeks time, most likely in front of Fantastic Four when that film arrives in theaters. In the meantime, check out our other interview with the cast of Deadpool below. And check out all of our Comic-Con videos right here!
