‘Deadpool 3’ may be on hold, but Rob Liefeld is bringing his iconic scavenger hunt back to SDCC.
San Diego Comic-Con will look a little different this year as the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes have caused major studios to pull out of the convention. Panels for exhibitions such as Good omens Most have been cancelled. These protests also mean that Hollywood productions such as Deadpool 3 has stopped production as well. However, that doesn’t mean there won’t be some Deadpool love at SDCC as an anti-hero creator. Rob Liefeld is bringing back the Deadpool Scavenger Hunt.
Liefeld has drawn four new Wolverine and Deadpool figures. One will be hidden somewhere in San Diego each day with cartoon creators leaving clues on social media about where to find the drawings. This scavenger hunt was introduced in 2015 when the trailer for the first time Deadpool The film was released for the first time.
Wolverine and Deadpool Join the MCU
These new sketches are definitely here to create excitement for Deadpool 3. While it is always good to have Ryan ReynoldsReturning to the merc with mouth theme, the main reason comic book fans lost their minds about this movie is because Hugh Jackman is returning as the famous X-Men character Wolverine. Not much is known about the story yet, but the film will finally see Jackman don Wolverine’s iconic yellow and blue comic book costume and will feature legacy Fox Marvel characters such as Jennifer GarnerElectra’s. Also, even for the first time Deadpool Filmed under the banner of Disney and the MCU, it will retain the bloody fun of the R-rated franchise. Deadpool 3 is set to hit theaters on May 3, 2024.
