One of the biggest confrontations to have never happened in the Marvel Universe becomes a reality in April in the four-issue “Deadpool Vs. Carnage.” The creative team behind “Deadpool Kills Deadpool,” Cullen Bunn and Salva Espin pit the Merc with a Mouth against the most dangerous and insane serial killer in comics, and, according to Bunn, who teased this project in a recent interview with CBR, Cletus Cassady battling Wade Wilson was a match-up that just had to happen.
“I think both of the appeal of these characters lies in that quality of “what the Hell are they gonna do next?” that both of them share,” Bunn told IGN. “For Deadpool, we’re constantly wondering about the wild, ridiculous antics he has up his sleeve. For Carnage, we wonder at the lengths he’ll go to for an increase in body count. That’s something we’ll see in this book-a kind of one-upmanship between the two. Zany versus murderous! A titan against a titan!”
