Deadpool was a surprise mega-hit this year, becoming the highest-grossing R-rated movie in history with its debut. A sequel is already confirmed, and everyone is talking about what’ll happen in it. At a recent Comic-Con, Tim Miller talked about what the sequel could be. And, what it won’t be.
“I don’t think bigger is better,” Miller said. “You tell a story that’s organic to the character. Deadpool’s world doesn’t mean you have to go bigger. I don’t think the fans of the movie like it because we had big effects.”
A confirmation that came at the end of the first movie was the reveal that Cable, Deadpool’s longtime frenemy, will be in the film. And everyone is throwing in ideas on who he should be. Miller noted how he was addressing it:
“Yeah, you listen to it, but it’s like if you’re a Republican or a Democrat,” he shared. “If you have an idea of what you want government to be, then that’s kind of what you hear — to support your own ideas. I have an idea of what Cable should be from reading the comics. So, someone in Des Moines, Iowa, may have a different idea of Cable from reading the comics. I may not like his idea. I might read it, but I may not do it. I would say I listen to all of them, but I don’t look to that to guide me. I look to the comic and why people like these characters.”
No word yet on when Deadpool 2 will release.
