Deadpool 2’ Drama: Ryan Reynolds, Writers Want ‘Scrappy’ Sequel, Tim Miller Wanted A Blockbuster

The fan world was sent into a tizzy a few days ago with the surprise news that Deadpool director Tim Miller would not return for the sequel, despite being announced as the director in April, citing ye-olde “creative differences.” Fans scrambled, even writing a nonsense petition asking for Quentin Tarantino to give up one of his last two films ever for a studio superhero sequel. Now, thanks for further reporting by our Heroicfounder & The Wrap reporter Umberto Gonzalez and his co-writer Matt Donnelly, we have details on what exactly caused Miller to skedaddle.

According to The Wrap‘s insiders, shortly after the first film’s creative team of Miller, star Ryan Reynolds and writers Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick were confirmed for Deadpool 2in April, disagreements became apparent between Miller and the others. Reynolds, Reese and Wernick pushed for a “‘scrappy,’ raunchy and inexpensive movie”  in the vein of the $58-million budgeted first film. Miller wanted something grander, a “more stylish take, one that would compete with mega-budget superhero movies” that would have cost something like $150 million.

There were two totally different movies on the table, and one of them just wasn’t ‘Deadpool,’” said one of The Wrap‘s insider, casting himself into Reynolds and the writers’ camp, which obviously won the day.

Gonzalez and Donnelly added that there was a failure to tamp down on the tensions amidst an executive turnover at Fox.

Deadpool is one of the most successful films of 2016. Deadpool 2 does not yet have a release date but is expected in 2018. Reese & Wernick are scripting. Miller jumped right onto another Fox film, Influx. Reynolds has the action comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguardwith Samuel L. Jackson and Gary Oldman in the can and recently wrapped the sci-fi thriller Life (also written by Reese & Wernick) with Jake Gyllenhaal and Rebecca Ferguson.
