While you might have a different favorite comic book movie of the year (so far, because we still have one more this year), Deadpool was by one of the most profitable ones of 2016. And with the huge amount of hype for the next one coming in 2018, some of the film’s fans have a request for it now that the past director has officially left the project. To replace Tim Miller, fans have started a petition asking for none other than Quentin Tarantino to direct Deadpool 2. Taking into account Tarantino’s Kill Bill as a reason as to why the movie would be good under his direction was one of their many reasons for naming Tarantino.
“If there was ever a chance to see Tarantino do a project almost guaranteed to make a billion dollars, this is it. We got a great taste of what this could be like in Kill Bill, but imagine having a guy like Tarantino write dialogue for The Merc with the Mouth! It would be so glorious. Join me!”
Tarantino has shown interest in directing superhero comics before, but not Deadpool. As we reported in the past, he showed interest in directing a Luke Cage film, back when he was doing Pulp Fiction. In my opinion, I don’t think that he’d want to do something like this, but I could be wrong. Tarantino has a habit of doing things differently, so he could totally take this and do what he wants to it, and make it a great film. The problem with this is that many fans might not realize that Tarantino would likely not do everything according to the comics, and would put his own twist on it. Miller did well with Deadpool because of the fact that he stayed close to the comics when it came to directing the film, unlike, I believe, Tarantino. The Kill Bill director hasn’t said anything yet in response to the petition.
What do you think of this idea? Do you think a Tarantino directed Deadpool 2 would look good or not? Let us know in the comment section down below, or on Twitter or Instagram!
