Fans became a little concerned about the future of Deadpool 2 when director Tim Miller, an integral part of the success of the first movie, departed the sequel following creative differences with star and producer Ryan Reynolds. But now John Wick director David Leitch has been brought on board, and hopefully we’ll get a sequel that satisfies everyone who loved the first, raunchy, fourth-wall breaking, comic book romp.
With Ryan Reynolds recently being named Entertainment Weekly’s Entertainer of the Year, the actor sat down with the magazine to discuss the sequel, his excitement for the new director, and a resistance to making the follow-up bigger than the first.

Tim Miller‘s Deadpool days may be done, but he’s got his sights on another wacky beloved character. He’s just signed on to develop Sony’s Sonic the Hedgehog, based on the popular video game series. However, Miller will not direct — that job will go instead to his Blur Studio collaborator Jeff Fowler, who’ll be making his directorial debut. Read More »

After spending much of Deadpool trying to find Francis, it looks like the Merc’s next job will be to track down a new director for Deadpool 2. Tim Miller, who helmed the first film and was expected to return for the sequel, has dropped out due to creative differences with star Ryan Reynolds. Read More »
Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick cared deeply about Deadpool. The two screenwriters behind Zombieland spent six years on the project, on and (mostly) off. Even when the odds of the comic book movie getting made appeared dire, they stuck with it, firmly believing in the character and director Tim Miller‘s vision. Once 20th Century Fox gave the project the greenlight, they wouldn’t pay to have “the real heroes” of Deadpool to be on set, but the film’s star and producer, Ryan Reynolds, was more than willing to pay them himself.

By any measure, Deadpool was a smash hit. It’s had a record-breaking box office run, somersaulting above even the highest projections, and managed to satisfy hardcore fans, total newcomers and discerning critics in one fell swoop. It put Ryan Reynolds back in Hollywood’s good graces after a string of disappointments (including another superhero movie, Green Lantern) and sparked speculation about a “Deadpool effect” that could see more funny, R-rated superhero movies hitting theaters.
No surprise, then, that 20th Century Fox are eager to stay on the good side of the Merc with a Mouth. At CinemaCon today, the studio officially confirmed what we already basically knew: that a Deadpool 2 is on the way. Read More »
Almost eight years ago director David Fincher optioned the movie rights to Eric Powell‘s Dark Horse comic book series The Goon, which started back in 1999. Over the years, Blur’s animated project has struggled to acquire financing. Back in 2013, after a successful Kickstarter campaign, Powell said the comic book adaptation was still moving forward. The few hundred ground went towards paying for a feature-length story reel, which was meant to attract financiers. Since then, we’ve heard very little.
The Goon has been in development long enough that some may have forgotten that Deadpool director, Tim Miller, is co-directing the film. Well, Miller finally has an update on The Goon development.

It’s no secret that Deadpool is all the rage right now, and a sequel is already in development at 20th Century Fox. With a visual effects wizard like Tim Miller behind the camera as director for the first time, it’s no surprise to see how visual effects were utilized perfectly to help bring Deadpool to life, making his masked face express a variety of emotions like the character does in the comic. But even more interesting is how five different actors and a team of special effects artists were used to bring the metal mutant Colossus to life in a completely different way than we’d seen on the big screen before. Find out how it was done after the jump. Read More »
After the failure of Fantastic Four, I imagined 20th Century Fox would’ve thought twice about working on a sequel before their newest comic book adaptation, Deadpool, even opened in theaters. A Deadpool sequel was reported on before opening day, but this time, the studio’s confidence paid off. The comic book character was a huge hit for audiences and critics, having made over $300 million worldwide thus far.
A Deadpool 2 will happen, and screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are already discussing it.
