Tim Miller Wanted ‘Deadpool’ Sequel To “Compete With Mega-Budget Superhero Movies”

Just a few days ago, we learned that Deadpool‘s director Tim Miller has decided to drop out of the sequel. At the time, the only reasoning given was that there were creative differences between himself and Ryan Reynolds. Now, we have a more concrete cause for Miller walking away from the director’s chair.

Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) reacts to Colossus’ (voiced by Stefan Kapicic) threats.

The first film was so successful because of the risk factor involved in making it. Its R-rating and the $58 million budget, among other things, set it apart from the rest of the MCU and DCEU films that have been coming out. Due to Deadpool’s nature as a character, the marketing for the film went over tremendously leading up to the release and fans roared with excitement seeing the redeemed Merc with a Mouth on screen. Because of this success, director Tim Miller wanted the sequel to have a “more stylish take, one that would compete with mega-budget superhero movies”. It is understandable why he would push for this but Reynolds, along with writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, wanted a “‘scrappy,’ raunchy and inexpensive movie”. Reynolds has such a love for this character and worked hard for a very long time to get the movie off the ground that while the sequel has no director currently, fans should take solace in the fact that Reynold’s vision ultimately outweighed Miller’s and he seems to know what’s in the best interest for the franchise.
