Deadpool director Tim Miller has spoken for the first time about his decision not to helm the sequel.

With the new film having three times the budget of the original, he said it became clear that the second film would be a different animal.

“I didn’t want to make some stylized movie that was three times the budget, and if you read the internet  —  and who cares, really  —  but for those of you who do, I wanted to make the same kind of movie that we made before, because I think that’s the right kind of movie to make for the character,” he said.

“All these things that you read kinda kills me, even when people go, ‘The movie was really hard to make’. The movie was a joy to make. I think you see it on screen, we all had such a good time. We had a few arguments in post, but nothing more than usual. The crew was so great, everybody was going to come back, and we were going to have such a good time. The idea that it was a difficult movie, it wasn’t  —  it was a joy, and it was the best experience of my life.”

John Wick director David Leitch will helm the new film which has a release date of sometime in 2018.

He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
