Deadpool was such a box-office and critical smash that the pressure the sequel has on its shoulders is immense.
With everyone wanting that magical formula to repeat once more, there has been a lot of things happening behind the production which everyone knows by now, so the original director Tim Miller leave the project due to “creative differences!”.
The race was on to find someone who could equally bring that vision and world Miller created and while every director you could think of has been named, its been confirmed that David Leitch – the man who gave us John Wick, has signed up to sit in the directors chair.
Its also been reported that FOX have already started work on a Deadpool 3, but will find a new director for that project.
The first sequel will once more star Ryan Reynolds and the script is currently being written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
