The "merc with a mouth" is coming back! However, there is one small change as the original director Tim Miller has departed the project. Miller left due to "creative differences" with Ryan Reynolds. Miller was hoping to go for a stylized run-of-the-mill superhero film while Reynolds wanted to keep the stuff that made the film a huge success. So Miller amicably departed from the film but a new director was named over the weekend.
87Elevent Stunt Team co-founder David Leitch has signed on to direct Deadpool 2. Reynolds will be returning as Wade Wilson, the disfigured superhealing merc with a smart mouth. He will be joined by Cable and Domino (casting is underway for these roles) and it is rumored that The Taskmaster will be the villain this time around.
Production is set to begin early next year for a 2018 release.
