Solicits Confirm Deadpool to Be "Canceled" with Despicable Deadpool #300

Earlier this month, Bleeding Cool told you that Despicable Deadpool would be canceled with May's Despicable Deadpool #300, only to be relaunched with a new number one issue in June. Now that Marvel has released the April solicitations, at least the first part of that report has proven true.

April's Despicable Deadpool #299 will be "the second-to-last skirmish in the saga of the DESPICABLE DEADPOOL," according to the issue's solicit. That means the series will have run just 14 bi-weekly issues since quasi-relaunching as part of Marvel Legacy. What will the Legacy of Marvel Legacy be? Potentially forgettable in the grand scheme of things, it would appear.

If Bleeding Cool is right — and tell us, when have we ever been wrong?! — that means the series will relaunch sans "Despicable" in June with a brand new #1 issue, though the Deadpool 2 movie release date has been moved up two weeks into May, spoiling that sweet, sweet synergy just a bit.

Maybe Marvel can push the reboot up two weeks as well? An early Marvel comic? Wouldn't that be a joke worthy of the Merc with a Mouth?

Check out the solicits below:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
