The superhero creator can be as mad as he wants, but it isn’t the studio that is slowing things up as he alleges.
Nope, the latest in the franchise is being held up by the crazy demands of the foreign born A+ lister.

Deadpool Creator Blames Marvel For Deadpool 3’s Delay
It’s no secret that the superhero genre has become a behemoth presence in the film world. And while countless franchises have hit theaters coming from various cinematic universes, a few have risen to the top as fan favorites. Chief among them is Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool, which broke new ground with an R-rated, fourth wall-breaking antihero. Deadpool 2 was another massive hit, but there’s no indication as to when work on the upcoming threequel might begin. And Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld is holding Marvel Studios personally responsible for this delay.
Deadpool’s future in theaters became murky after Disney acquired 20th Century Fox and its various properties. It’s currently unclear if Ryan Reynolds’ murderous title character will join the MCU, or if Disney will keep him in his own separate universe. There hasn’t been any news about Deadpool 3 or the X-Force movie, and Rob Liefeld believes this is due to the studio’s current plans for the Marvel Shared Universe. As he put it,
“I blame Marvel…blame Marvel that that hasn’t happened yet. They are the reason it isn’t happening. Whatever conundrum or it didn’t fit into your master plan, just commission it. Okay, commission it. You know if Frank Frazetta was still around, you would say, ‘Frank paint for me.'” – Source
