One of the stranger stories to end the year was the sudden departure of director Tim Miller from Deadpool 2, the sequel to 2016’s biggest breakout hit. Given the original film’s agonizing production history, it seemed like shooting a sequel would be a walk in the woods; instead, Miller’s decision to walk away from the project caught everyone by surprise, and rumors have swirled about creative differences ever since. Thankfully, Miller himself recently spoke at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects (via iO9) and put some of these rumors to bed.

Tim Miller’s exit from Deadpool 2 over “creative differences” looked to most of us like yet another imaginative director being taken advantage of by a big studio. Then, we learned that those creative differences weren’t with Marvel or Disney, but with the star Ryan Reynolds himself. As it turned out, Reynolds had an idea for the sequel that didn’t correspond with what Miller wanted to do, so Miller decided to leave the project. Now, Reynolds has made his first public comments about the issue.

Because video game movies are becoming the new superhero movies, we’re getting a Sonic the Hedgehog film. And who better to develop it than Tim Miller, who recently has some unexpected time on his hands since quitting the Deadpool sequel. He won’t be directing, though — it’ll be Jeff Fowler, his Blur Studios colleague, who will be making his directorial debut with this film

It’s been a rough week for the nascent Deadpool franchise. Last weekend, the original film’s director Tim Miller announced that he would not return to helm the planned sequel despite his fanbase’s widely held assumptions. Miller never signed any paperwork committing him to the project, and clarified his position on Saturday, citing creative differences with star Ryan Reynolds as the key reason for his abstaining. It left the producers in something of a bind, scrambling to lock down new talent before principal photography gets going early next year.

‘Deadpool 2’ Creative Differences Were Over Two Completely Different Ideas for the Sequel

When we heard this weekend that Tim Miller had quit the Deadpool sequel due to the all-too-common “creative differences,” we knew something had gone very, very wrong. Miller had clashed with the film’s star Ryan Reynolds, who had been lobbying to get his version of the merc with a mouth into theaters since even before his ill-fated attempt at the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Reynolds loves the character, and Miller managed to make fifteen times the budget of the first movie on its release. So what went wrong? Apparently, the clash that caused Miller to bow out of the sequel came about because two separate groups were campaigning for two entirely different movies.

One of the biggest Hollywood success stories of the past few years was Deadpool, the R-rated superhero movie from 20th Century Fox. From dead in the water to surprise box office smash, Deadpool became a perfect parable for young filmmakers who have a story to tell and won’t let failure stand in the way of getting their movie made. Unfortunately, though, life doesn’t always adhere to clean narratives. Despite all the setbacks that Deadpool director Tim Miller faced along the way, it turns out there was only one thing that could cause him to throw in the towel: success.

Three days before Deadpool even hit theaters, word got around that Fox was already developing a sequel with screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick returning. Since then we’ve heard a lot about what to expect from the sequel (Cable, mostly) despite the fact that Fox had yet to make an official announcement. That changed today at CinemaCon, of course, where the studio made it all very officially official, confirming the return of both Ryan Reynolds and director Tim Miller for Deadpool 2.

You may recall a few years back, when Deadpool director Tim Miller released a proof-of-concept video for an R-rated CG-animated adaptation of Eric Powell’s beloved graphic novel The Goon. You may have also forgotten about it in the years since, but now that Miller delivered a record-breaking box office hit with another R-rated comic book adaptation, it looks like there’s been renewed interest in The Goon. While nothing is officially moving forward just yet, Miller seems pretty optimistic about its chances.

We already knew that there were two actors involved with bringing Colossus to life in Deadpool: Andre Tricoteux provided the mo-cap performance for the larger-than-life X-Men character, while Stefan Kapicic provided his heavily-accented voice. But according to this interesting new VFX reel, there were three more performers involved in creating Colossus — yes, it took five whole men to make one giant mutant superhero.
