Who Should Direct Deadpool 2?


This weekend brought the unfortunate news that director Tim Miller will not be returning to helm the second Deadpool movie. As it turns out, he and star Ryan Reynolds weren’t as simpatico as we thought. Although the split was amicable, Miller and Reynolds clashed over the film’s tone, and the casting of Cable. Now the search is on for a new director, and Fox finds themselves in a difficult, but not entirely negative place. Deadpool was a massive hit, and now that the seat is open, some more prominent directors might smell the blood in the water. However, I hope that Fox goes with somebody who’s still a bit of an up and comer. Somebody with more experience than Miller, but who hasn’t made the step up to blockbusters.

With that, here are my five (somewhat realistic) choices.
