‘Deadpool 2’ Confirmed With Ryan Reynolds, Director Tim Miller Returning

The “Merc With a Mouth” will be back.

Deadpool 2” is in the works, with star Ryan Reynolds and director Tim Miller returning to the fold, Fox co-chairman Stacey Snider said at CinemaCon on Thursday.

Fox said that the entire creative team behind the superhero blockbuster will be back, with original writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick handling script duties. As soon as “Deadpool” started smashing records, a sequel was something of a foregone conclusion. The first film grossed $757.3 million globally, making it the highest-grossing R-rated film on a worldwide basis. It also helped reinvigorate Reynolds’ career. His star had hit a low point, diminished by flops such as “RIPD” and “Green Lantern.”

CinemaCon is an annual exhibition trade show, unfolding this week in Las Vegas. Fox also unveiled footage from the latest “Ice Age” sequel, “X-Men: Apocalypse” and “Independence Day: Resurgence.”

“Deadpool” was Miller’s feature film directorial debut. He is also an animator and visual effects specialist.

Deadpool 2: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Lizzy Caplan Reportedly Among Domino Contenders
Share.
The mutant mercenary is a love interest of Cable.
By Evan Campbell

Six actresses, including Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Lizzy Caplan, are reportedly contenders to play Domino in Deadpool 2.

According to Collider, Deadpool 2 director Tim Miller and company have started testing for Neena Thurman, also known as Domino. Caplan (The Interview), Winstead (Scott Pilgrim), Sienna Miller (American Sniper), Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Stephanie Sigman (Spectre) and Sylvia Hoeks (Blade Runner 2049) are in the running.

Like Deadpool, Domino is a mutant and mercenary. She also has a history with Cable, who's set to appear in the Fox/Marvel sequel.

Previously, Bloodline star Kyle Chandler and Halt and Catch Fire's Mackenzie Davis were rumored for Cable and Domino, but Davis said that was unfortunately not the case for her in August.

There is no release date yet for Deadpool 2.

I'm in.

Deadpool and GoG are the two comic-based films I've truly appreciated these past several years.

They announced the characters, not the actresses/short list. I like the idea of Caplan or Bouetella or Davis (who apparently is not in contention).

I hear they are making Deadpool a broad.
Probably for tax breaks. And a lot of the first one was filmed in Canada, so it has a precedent.

Tim Miller out.

Director Tim Miller, Ryan Reynolds Part Company On ‘Deadpool 2’



EXCLUSIVE: After a series of creative differences between Deadpool director Tim Miller and star Ryan Reynolds, Miller has exited Deadpool 2. He hadn’t formally signed a deal to continue, but he was developing the script and by all accounts had planned to return behind the camera for a film Fox will release in 2018.

I’ve confirmed from studio insiders this exit was over mutual creative differences, but this all ended amicably and the studio is very high on Miller and the expectation is the filmmaker will jump right into another big Fox project: Influx, an adaptation of the David Suarez novel that has a Mark Bomback script and is expected to launch a film trilogy.

This will come as a blow to fans of the original film, an audacious franchise launch that came out of nowhere to become one of the biggest movie success stories in recent years, and another major franchise for Emma Watts’ division at Fox. And everyone had a hand in shaping its unusual tone. That includes Miller — a VFX wiz hired to make his directorial debut on the project way back in 2011 — to writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and Reynolds, who first played ‘The Merc With A Mouth’ in the widely panned X-Men Origins: Wolverine (they sewed shut his mouth so he couldn’t speak) and lobbied hard for another chance on a movie that really captured the inherent fun in the comic book.

Much the way that Robert Downey Jr proved to be the perfect guy to play Tony Stark/Iron Man, Reynolds proved a glove fit for the scarred wisecracking, indestructible Deadpool. When these creative differences come up between actor and director, it is often the former that exits. But much the way it is with a handful of other franchises — Tom Cruise on Mission: Impossible, Hugh Jackman onWolverine, Matt Damon on Bourne Identity or Downey on Iron Man — the star has the greatest influence. And here, Reynolds is also an active producer, along with Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner. They made the best of the situation as Miller removed himself from the fray and the studio turned him loose on creating another world with Influx.

Deadpool revived Reynolds’ career, and he was key to much of the clever and humorous marketing and promotion that paved the way for an initially unheralded film that got green lit after Miller leaked CGI test footage in 2014 that sparked the fanboy fuse, and rose to unprecedented levels of financial success. The picture grossed $782 million worldwide on a $58 million budget and broke many box office records, including highest grossing R-rated film ever, as well as the biggest grossingX-Men film. The key was its black humor and a hard R-rated tone that was the equivalent of anarchy and made most other superhero movies seem cookie cutter by comparison.

Miller’s exit just happened late Friday. Fox, which last week unveiled the first footage of Logan — which marks the final turn by Hugh Jackman as the stalwart X-Men star Wolverine — will be plenty busy making sure one of its most valuable franchises stays on track.

I thought that at first but it seems that he had creative difference with Reynolds, who seems to be the bigger driving creative force. Miller didn't write the first one, he just directed it.

That's true, and I'm not taking anything away from Miller, but I actually felt like Deadpool was fairly standard on the direction level, and that it could maybe stand to get a tad more stylized and interesting in the sequel. I don't think that was because Miller is incapable of doing that. It was just a smaller project, and they still squeezed it for a shit ton of awesome. I guess my point is that I feel that losing him isn't as concerning to me as losing the writers or Reynolds or even making it PG-13 via studio interference. I think another director could step in and do a great job.

That would be a very interesting choice considering that he quit Ant Man because of a lack of creative freedom. The one big unknown is whether or not the creators managed to ride the success of Deadpool into receiving creative freedom for the sequel, or did Fox go "now we have a massive hit on our hands" and panicked and started interfering. If it's the former, Wright would be perfect. If it's the latter then we're fucked either way.

Plus it's the X-Men universe. Fox probably has no idea or plan what's going on anyway. "Legion - is it part of the X-Men Movie Universe or not?" "Sure!"

They havent actually said which X-men universe Deadpool lives in have they? If they're allowing their Wolverine final movie to be R-rated they might be willing to see how a second unrestrained Deadpool movie will do.

Plus they're introducing female wolverine so they can keep that fun going

Not really. DP asks "McAvoy or Stewart" but beyond that we have no clue. If Deadpool didn't hit, they could have easily freshly rebooted everything after Logan and no one would have cared.

Plus they're introducing female wolverine so they can keep that fun going
Yes, but female Wolverine is all the way out in 2025 or some such nonsense. Deapdool is in 2016ish. And the X-Men of X-Men are still in the 1980s. It's all a huge bowl of fuckery.

EDIT: Keeping it Deapdool.

And Deadpool 2 introduces Cable who time travels, does he not?
