Deadpool 2 Director Quits After Creative Disagreements With Star Ryan Reynolds

Deadpool director Tim Miller has given up his directorial duties for the upcoming sequel, Deadpool 2. According to a report from The Wrap, creative differences may have led up to Miller’s decision to walk out on the project.
According to the report, Miller wanted a more “stylized” sequel while actor and star, Ryan Reynolds, wanted the film to retain the first movie’s “raunchy comedy style”. To add more tension between the two, Miller wanted to cast actor Kyle Chandler in the role of Deadpool’s ally Cable but Reynolds did not agree with this decision.
In the end, 20th Century Fox agreed with Reynolds which prompted Miller’s departure. When this news first broke it was said that the split was amicable, though according to The Wrap’s report the relationship between Miller and Reynolds had been contentious for some time.
At this time, there has been no announcement of who might replace Miller.
What do you think of this? Is the Deadpool sequel in jeopardy? Let us know in the comments.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
