The most recent news coming from the highly anticipated Deadpool sequel is the departure of the film’s director Tim Miller. Miller directed the first movie and did an incredible job. Film’s receive working title’s all the time during their development and now ComicBook is reporting that the working title for Deadpool 2 will be ‘Love Machine’.
This is a wink to the romance elements that were featured in the first film. Part of the marketing for the film was the poster below which displayed the movie as a full on romantic comedy…
Since we don’t know anything about the plot of the sequel, we don’t know if it will feature as much romance as the first movie, but given how passionate Ryan Reynolds is about the character, those core essential comedic elements that made ‘Deadpool’ so enjoyable, will certainly be prominent.
Since Miller’s departure, fans have since petitioned for directors such as Quentin Tarantino to helm the project. Tarantino, while being an incredible director, most likely wouldn’t consider a Deadpool movie because it wouldn’t be an original piece. Other directors, mentioned amongst fans, that would be a much better fit for the movie include Matthew Vaughn, Adam Mckay and Kevin Smith.
