Deadpool Creator Rob Liefeld Reveals Why the Terminator Franchise is Dead

A lot has been said about the failure of Terminator: Dark Fate to perform at the box office. Bleeding Cool’s Adi Tantimedh blames poor word of mouth due to a shocking spoiler about the film you can read about here. Kyle J. Steenblik claims that the original Terminator was never that good in the first place. Danielle Solzman wonders whether this is the end of the franchise. She may be right.

But superstar artist Rob Liefeld says he’s figured out the reason that the franchise not only peaked, but, for all purposes, died, and the revelation came during a FaceTime chat with his 19-year-old son and his roommates. Liefeld tweeted:

The truth, Liefeld realized, was that he and other Terminator fans from his generation failed to pass down the love of the franchise to their children. As a result, the franchise died with them.

It may be too late for Terminator, but as Liefeld realized, there’s still time to save other beloved franchises of your youth, so be sure to share them with your kids while you still can, before a sequel bombs at the box office!

About Jude Terror

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

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
