Now, the road to Deadpool 2 may well be paved with good intentions, but that doesn't mean it hasn't also thus far been covered in rocks, snakes, and awkwardly timed directorial departures. The latter, of course, has raised the most concern among fans, with #TimMiller's hightailing it to the hills of greater creative freedom suggesting to many that something was very much awry down in #Deadpool country.
The sequel remains very much on its way, though — albeit without a firm release date as of yet — and with #JohnWick director #DavidLeitch now warming the director's chair, things might just be looking up for the somewhat troubled production. Indeed, from the sounds of it, we might yet have a whole lot to look forward to:
There's 'More Fun Stuff Coming' In 'Deadpool 2,' According To TJ Miller
Yup, that's right. According to #TJMiller, a.k.a. Deadpool's bar-tending sidekick Weasel, any confidence in or excitement related towards the film isn't at all misplaced. As he recently put it to Cinema Blend:
"I have been talking with Ryan Reynolds and the writers, and they're really excited about [Deadpool 2]. I think, for me, I just want Weasel to wield a gun, at one point. But there's more fun stuff coming."
Which is, of course, an entirely normal thing for the star of a franchise to say (it would, after all, be unusual if Miller were to snarkily note that the sequel will be incredibly boring) but is fairly reassuring all the same. After all, with Miller's directorial namesake having departed the project, much of the weight of expectation is now set to fall on #RyanReynolds and the film's writing team. If they're still excited for — and, crucially, bringing their A game to — the project, then Deadpool 2 could still blow us all away.
After all, blowing people away is the soon-to-debut #Cable's specialty, right?
Still want more on Deadpool 2 (and Cable) though? Never fear, we've got you covered right here.
In the meantime, what do you think? Will Deadpool 2 live up to our lofty expectations? Let us know below!
