Actor Lena Headey gets creator Rob Liefeld’s nod for playing Lady Deadpool
Disney recently acquired Fox Studios and all of its intellectual property. Meaning the rights to all the X-Men characters now lies with Marvel Studios. And the studio is more than eager to bring the iconic characters back to the silver screen. Barring one, Deadpool!
Heads Up! Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld concurs with the idea of Game of Thrones actor Lena Headey playing Lady Deadpool
- Lena Headey expresses interest in playing Lady Deadpool
- Who is Lady Deadpool?
- Rob Liefeld blames Marvel for Deadpool 3 delay
The R rated movie doesn’t concede with Disney’s family-friendly image. Hence delaying the movie further and further. However, the studio has announced the third instalment with actor Ryan Reynolds.
Heady Gets an Official Nod
And now another actor has shown interest in the franchise. Game of Throne alum Lena Heady aka Cerci Lannister recently, expressed in an interview her wish to play ‘Merc with a Mouth.’ Heady told GeekHouseShow, “Well, I’d love to play Deadpool. Obvs. Anyway, that’s been taken.”
Furthermore, Heady gets an official nod from Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld. In a recent ComicBook.com interview, he responded to the idea brightly. He said, “Bring it on baby, bring it on! Lady Deadpool is fantastic. She’s ridiculously popular as well. Also slightly underused I think.”
Who is Lady Deadpool?
Lady Deadpool is alter ego of Wanda Wilson in one of an alternate Deadpool universe where she fights on the wrong side of the US Civil War. She is also part of Deadpool Corps. Deadpool put the team of alternate universe Deadpools together to fight a cosmic entity Known as the Awareness. Other members of the Deadpool Corps include Headpool (the severed head of Marvel Zombies Deadpool), Kid Deadpool, and Dogpool.
While Marvel Studio enters multiverse in Phase 4, Lady Deadpool doesn’t seem like a farfetched idea. However, fans should not get excited about it.
Marvel is Responsible for Deadpool 3 Delay
In the same interview, Rob Liefeld expresses his frustration and blamed Marvel Studio for Deadpool 3 delay. He blames the studio for not commissioning the third instalment of the franchise.
He said, “I blame Marvel…blame Marvel that that hasn’t happened yet. They are the reason it isn’t happening.” Complaining about the larger MCU plans he continued, “Whatever conundrum or it didn’t fit into your master plan, just commission it. Okay, commission it.”
He went on to say, “If Ryan isn’t making Deadpool 3 right now, that’s because Marvel hasn’t allowed it to be yet. So, do I have a lot of faith in that system? Dude, I have no idea. So this is where I’m not that, I’m not giving you the answers you want. I’m like yeah, yeah. Look if it happens, terrific. How old am I gonna be when that happens? And literally I used to be like, yeah, Mark Ruffalo, Hulk and Deadpool would make for a funny movie right? But, none of these guys are getting younger, right okay?”
Wouldn’t it be fun to watch that play onscreen with a Lady Deadpool thrown in the mix? Marvel should listen up!
