Deadpool fans would’ve been forgiven for being concerned with the state of a second installment to the film series following reports director Tim Miller has left the project.
But it turns out said fans are a truly pragmatic bunch and they’ve been far too busy finding solutions to problems, rather than dwelling on them.
As reported by the NME, Miller supposedly walked away from the sequel citing ‘creative differences’ between himself and lead actor Ryan Reynolds.
But could this man be the answer…
A petition has already been set up on change.org calling on legendary director Quentin Tarantino to be handed the reins to ‘Deadpool 2’ – which has no official title or release date at present.
A statement on the petition reads:
If there was ever a chance to see Tarantino do a project almost guaranteed to make a billion dollars, this is it. We got a great taste of what this could be like in Kill Bill, but imagine having a guy like Tarantino write dialogue for The Merc with the Mouth! It would be so glorious. Join me!
So far the appeal has garnered over 6.7k signatures in support of Tarantino’s involvement.
Producer Simon Kinberg commented on the sequel, saying:
I think Deadpool 2 will comment on anything that’s happening in movies today especially in superhero movies. The sort of glut or saturation of these movies and the proliferation of sequels is definitely something we’ll play around with.
