Rob Liefeld, the creator of Deadpool referred to DC as a ‘damaged brand’ that is struggling to compete with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Earlier, the Deadpool creator has a random thought about Warner Bros DCEU and how it works to compete significantly with the MCU and Marvel Studios. Liefeld recently posted these thoughts on social media while reacting to James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad.
Liefeld, in a series of social media posts, reacted and published his views on James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad as it was expected that this film is going to revive the Box Office amidst the global pandemic. But surprisingly, Rob Liefeld stated in response to the criticism that “Then get rid of everyone, top to bottom. Start over. Except those numbers will be out tomorrow and they won’t be the difference-maker.” He stated this in response to the criticism that the film did not perform well at the Box Office due to the pandemic and this was certainly unfair.
Rob again tweeted that: “Unfortunately, DC is just a damaged brand at this point. Marvel has pulled away in such spectacular fashion and DC has lost ground on all platforms.” But when he was asked that why he feels this way, he replied: “Years of tone-deaf mismanagement. Make no doubt; The Suicide Squad is a great film. James Gunn added so much style and heart. The problem is deeper, beyond the pandemic and streaming. Looking forward to PEACEMAKER regardless.”
The opening weekend Box Office collection of The Suicide Squad was compared with Mortal Kombat’s release that made a collection of $23,302,503 when released. In contrast, James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad opened with $26.5 million when had a budget of $185 million.
