Report: The Rift That Led to Tim Miller Leaving Deadpool 2 Went DeepKatharine Trendacosta10/25/16 6:30pmFiled to: deadpoolfoxmoviesryan reynoldsDeadpool 2Ryan ReynoldsTim Miller34324EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkOver the weekend, it was reported that Tim Miller, who directed Deadpool, would not be returning for the sequel, supposedly over a casting dispute with Ryan Reynolds. A new report from The Wrap says that the rift went deeper than that. And it makes Miller leaving sound like the best possible outcome.The initial story, also from the Wrap, said that Miller’s leaving had to do with the director wanting a much more stylized action sequel, while Reynolds wanted to stick to the humor-based tone of the first one. A lot of the humor, remember, covered a very small budget. According the reports released over the weekend, the final straw had to do with the casting of Kyle Chandler as Cable. Reynolds objected and won the fight with the studio. But lost the director.
