Deadpool co-creator clarifies his comment on Deadpool 3

In an interview, Rob Liefeld said that he knows that there is no movement on Deadpool 3, but that does not worry him at all. What he earlier did was to answer a question honestly. And what he learned this week is just lie. He stated that if you tell people everything is "lollipop and unicorns and rainbows" you’ll be better off in your life because people want to be lied to. Liefeld mentioned that if some guy is saying that yeah, they are still moving along with the film, then that is code for "there is nothing to see here".

Liefeld further stated that he has Deadpool revenue streams that have existed since 1991 and already gets paid. So he anyways gets“a fat check", irrespective of whether the movie is made or not.
