Tim Miller, director of Deadpool, revealed the truth about his not directing the highly anticipated sequel.

"Don't believe what you read on the internet," warned Miller toDeadpool fans. It was announced that star, Ryan Reynolds, and co-writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, were scheduled to return for Deadpool 2, but that Miller had walked away from the sequel project. Some sources speculated that the departure of Miller wasdue to his wanting to make a large budget film that was more like other Marvel blockbusters.

"I just want to say one thing to the geek audience out therebecause 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 three times the budget," said Miller in an interview withCG Garage."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. I wanted to do the same thing."

David Leitch, who co-directed John Wickwill helm the newDeadpool 2 project.

"[Leitch is] just a guy who's so muscular with his action," said Ryan Reynolds."He also really understands those Deadpool sensibilities and where we need to take the franchise from here. And I love John Wick.
