So we all had a bit of a shock a few days ago when Deadpool director Tim Miller left the sequel over ‘artistic differences’ (read here for more) but it looks like FOX and star Ryan Reynolds have an interesting choice lined up for the gig…
David Leitch, one half of the directing and stunt team behind the John Wick has apparently met with Reynolds to discuss coming on board as director of the superhero sequel.
However, before we get too excited, we’re also hearing that Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard and Luke Cage director Magnus Martens are in the list of possible directors.
This is certainly an interesting list with all the names certainly have credentials in the superhero/nerdy arena.
We also know there’s a petition to get Quentin Tarantino to direct the sequel and, while we do think this could be a special kind of crazy, we really can’t see it happening.
What say you all? Is Miller’s departure a fatal blow or do you see someone else stepping up? Let us know…
