Though director Tim Miller hasn’t been attached to Deadpool for a while, the announcement of his departure coming in October, he has recently spoken out about the coverage of his split with the successful franchise.
Reported initially by GameSpot, Miller discussed his reasons for leaving the Deadpool sequel in an episode of CG Garage. Referencing the claim that he wanted a big-budget sequel (whereas Reynolds didn’t), Miller had this to say: “I didn’t want to make some stylized movie that was three times the budget,” going on to clarify his position, “If you read the internet–who cares, really?”
What Miller actually wanted was to make a film markedly similar to the first one, “I wanted to make the same kind of movie that we made before because I think that’s the right movie to make for the character.”
Miller cautioned people from believing from they read on the internet, going on to describe the Deadpool production as a positive experience, “The crew was so great, everybody was going to come back and we were going to have such a good time and the idea that it was a difficult movie… it wasn’t, it was a joy, and it was the best experience of my life.”
Deadpool 2 will be directed by David Leitch, of John Wick fame, and it doesn’t currently have a release date.
