Ever since Tim Miller confirmed he was no longer involved with the sequel rumors have run rampant about his departure.
We finally have word from the man himself about the film and what was going on. Rumors previously suggested that he himself wanted a film 3 times the cost of Deadpool which was made on a budget of just over 55 Million.
Miller had this to say
“I just want to say one thing to the geek audience out there, because it’s important to me what the geeks and nerds of the world think because they are my brothers and sisters. I didn’t want to make some stylized movie that was 3 times the budget. If you read the internet–who cares, really? But for those of you who do, I wanted to make the same kind of movie that we made before because I think that’s the right movie to make for the character. So don’t believe what you read on the internet,” he explained.
Miller also said that he has not met with David Leitch yet, who is director of the sequel but he did have this to say.
“I wish them nothing but good–I hope it’s great. I hope it’s a great movie. Because I love the character and I think it’s great, and I love all the actors and I want to see them successful again,” he said.
