DEADPOOL & WOLVERINE: Rob Liefeld Responds To Trailer's Shot At His Apparent Inability To Draw Feet DEADPOOL & WOLVERINE: Rob Liefeld Responds To Trailer's Shot At His Apparent Inability To Draw Feet

Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld has weighed in on the "Liefeld's Just Feet" gag in the new Deadpool & Wolverine trailer, confirming he approved the joke and is thrilled by what he's seen from the movie.

There's a long-running joke among comic book fans that Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld is unable to draw feet. While he has, in fact, drawn feet on multiple occasions, much of his work does seem to avoid showing them and it's since taken on a life of its own.

Deadpool 2 referenced it when the Merc with the Mouth points out to Domino that luck isn't a real superpower and was probably dreamed up by "some crackpot" that "can’t draw feet."

Liefeld later confirmed he'd approved the joke when he said, "Ryan calls me and says, 'Rob, we have this joke, I wanna run it by you. Please share me your thoughts.' I said 'Ryan, I absolutely love it.'"

In the latest Deadpool & Wolverine trailer, we see a store named "Liefeld's Just Feet." 

There's been speculation this was a shot at Liefeld (we're not sure why given how supportive he's always been of the franchise), but the writer and artist was quick to take to social media yesterday, confirming he "approved it 9 months ago."

He'd add, "Being poked at by the premiere funny man/mega-star of his age is an absolute honor! Make no doubt that this is a thrill and an honor."

Check out Liefeld's Deadpool & Wolverine comments in full below. 

Shawn Levy directs Deadpool & Wolverine, which stars Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, Emma Corrin, Morena Baccarin, Rob Delaney, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni, and Matthew Macfadyen. The movie is written by Ryan Reynolds & Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick & Zeb Wells & Shawn Levy.

The trades have confirmed that Jennifer Garner will reprise her role as Elektra, with Wesley Snipes, James Marsden, Famke Janssen, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Dafne Keen, Channing Tatum, Blake Lively and, as we mentioned above, even singer Taylor Swift among those rumoured to make an appearance. 

Kevin Feige, Reynolds, Levy and Lauren Shuler Donner produce with Louis D’Esposito, Wendy Jacobson, Mary McLaglen, Josh McLaglen, Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, George Dewey, Simon Kinberg and Jonathon Komack Martin serving as executive producers.

Deadpool & Wolverine arrives in theaters on July 26.

With a character like Deadpool it is absolutely fitting, and circumstantially it is all in absolute good fun.
DeadClunge - 4/23/2024, 5:13 AM
Hugh looks good!
TheMetaMan - 4/23/2024, 5:19 AM
@DeadClunge - Definitely. His dedication to the role is admirable. The man’s in his 50s but he looks solid. No matter who replaces him in future it is undeniable that he will always be the OG, the quintessential and the most definitive wolverine.
DeadClunge - 4/23/2024, 7:38 AM
@TheMetaMan - yep 100% he's just so good in the role.
Izaizaiza - 4/23/2024, 9:50 AM
@TheMetaMan @DeadClunge: in my opinion, the biggest mistake they could make when they recast Wolverine is to try to find a Hugh clone. For a lot of the general audience, Hugh is Wolverine. I really hope they go with a more comic accurate version, in large part because I want to see a shorter, meaner version of the character... But also because they can't just try to recast and beat Jackman at his own game. For as questionable as his original casting was, he made the role his own

They shouldve taken a shot at Marvel for their inability to keep the momentum after the high of Endgame
TheMetaMan - 4/23/2024, 5:24 AM
@vectorsigma - mathematically the MCU losing their grip on the product after endgame was always inevitable. Everything peaks once something reaches optimisation. It’s a natural process for things to get worse before they get better. Personally I don’t think they lost any grip it’s just another cycle of reality. I’m more then happy with the MCU and I’m super excited for Deadpool 3. Warner Bros lost their grip on the DCEU, now that’s what I call a debacle.

@vectorsigma -

The trailer showed 2-plus minutes of an entire movie, so who's to say they won't?
FireandBlood - 4/23/2024, 5:34 AM
@TheMetaMan - WB lost their grip on DC after they peaked with The Dark Knight Rises 12 years ago because the DCEU was a whole farce.
vectorsigma - 4/23/2024, 5:51 AM
@TheMetaMan - i dont think their shift to DEI or going too woke was mathematical at all.

If they stayed hiring good creatives and not focus on checking boxes, there couldve been a chance the success continued
vectorsigma - 4/23/2024, 5:52 AM
@tylerzero - lol, fingers crossed!
ObserverIO - 4/23/2024, 6:09 AM
@vectorsigma - I think people overstate the DEI thing way too often.

Marvel were checking those boxes before they were even boxes.

Blackrock are like "Yo Marvel, you better get woke or else!" and Marvel are like "lol, We've always been woke mother[frick]ers".
So it hasn't really compromised their work in any way, because they were doing it anyway. There are other massive reasons why the work has been compromised recently, Chapek being foremost among them and since they fixed that little problem, they've been back on form.

2022 and 2023 were bad years for Marvel. There were some good products, but for Marvel those were bad years.

2024 has been awesome so far.
vectorsigma - 4/23/2024, 6:43 AM
@ObserverIO - hollywood has been an industry of checkboxes, i can agree.

But the early years of the MCU seemed to have focused more in telling a good story than checking those other boxes.

The only blatant push for DEI in the early phases imo was Black Panther, and that had a good story more than anything else.

I also cant think of anything TOO woke on the earlier films. But i might be wrong.
ObserverIO - 4/23/2024, 7:24 AM
@vectorsigma - They did both. Told good stories while being fairly woke. What stopped was the first part.

The earlier films were probably no more or less woke than the current films, on average. I guess we had an Asian-descended lead which we'd never had before.
vectorsigma - 4/23/2024, 7:52 AM
@ObserverIO - just to be clear, we have the same opinion with your first paragraph which i mentioned in my previous comment.

And im not saying the earlier films were not woke, i said the later films got TOO woke.
TheMetaMan - 4/23/2024, 7:59 AM
@FireandBlood - I liked the DCEU. Love BvS, WW, Aquaman 1 & justice league. I adore MOS. Everything else was forgettable. I prefer these movies to the dark knight rises. TDKR was a good conclusion to the trilogy, I like it but there are many flaws that are hard to overlook for me and it’s easily the worst entry in that trilogy. It’s got nothing on Begins or DK. I’d happily watch MOS, BvS or Justice league then TDKR. It doesn’t have much replay value and lacks that thrill factor of TDK and the tight pacing of begins.
Izaizaiza - 4/23/2024, 8:11 AM
@vectorsigma - I bet that they do.
Tonic24k - 4/23/2024, 8:42 AM
@vectorsigma - Anyone who understands the simple concept of 'climax' in storytelling knows post-Endgame material wasn't going to have nearly as much gravity. It's really such an unintelligent argument to be echoing and regurgitating.

Meanwhile, there are a bunch of Phase 4 and 5 projects that outshine Phase 1 and 2 projects.

At the end of the day, Marvel Studios is still the best to ever do it and mfers are still out here finding shit to complain about. There is warranted criticism, for sure. But the constant complaining is fvcking embarrassing.

There will ALWAYS be something to complain about. The difference between men and boys is that men know complaining is unproductive and weak so they refrain from doing it. Boys complain not taking any of this into consideration...

Someone tell this to that twerp @Origame too.

@Tonic24k - "Meanwhile, there are a bunch of Phase 4 and 5 projects that outshine Phase 1 and 2 projects" Now I know you're full of it lol Thor 2 is better than 70% of what we've received since Endgame
Tonic24k - 4/23/2024, 9:36 AM
@bobevanz - No tf it isn't...don't even try that bullshit. Even before the Infinity Saga was wrapped people regarded that movie as the worst in the lineup. I'd watch Eternals over Thor 2 ANY DAY. I'd watch GotG 3 over Iron Man 3 ANY DAY. Hell, The Marvels was a better film than Captain Marvel. Hulk was a mid tier film. Iron Man 2 didn't age well at all. Captain America looked like a goof ball in Avengers 1.

For me that's okay, that's all part of the evolution of the MCU. But obviously, weaker men choose to complain... it's seriously such a bad look.

@vectorsigma - I love how white privileged nepo babies want to use DEI and woke as their buggy man terms when most shit films and shows are run white privileged nepo babies.
vectorsigma - 4/23/2024, 11:07 AM
@Tonic24k - your day that bad huh?

Cant reason with this one if a simple comment gets you tagged as unintelligent.

LSHF - 4/23/2024, 5:30 AM
I'm glad I understand the jokes now.
mdwilliamson24 - 4/23/2024, 6:33 AM
I'm not a fan of Liefelds art to begin with, but there are a fair number of comic artists that don't do feet well and hide them whenever possible.

It's cool to see he loves the jokes and can roll with it.
marvel72 - 4/23/2024, 8:30 AM
I did like Robs artwork when he first came out,his run on New Mutants was decent enough.
Fogs - 4/23/2024, 9:49 AM
@marvel72 - Nah, I couldn't stand it. people with 1312312 teeth in their mouths and crap like that. We had quality artists at the time and he just wasn't on par.
BlackStar25 - 4/23/2024, 9:27 AM
Bro should have dropped like the sexiest feet drawing ever...
TheSuperMex - 4/23/2024, 11:09 AM
He is probably getting some of that Deadpool cash so I’m sure is fine being roasted.

Good-spirited artists have no problems embracing their shortcomings. W for Rob on this one.
