Actress ZAZIE BEETZ (Atlanta) is officially cast as the deadly mercenary ‘Domino’. Besides her excellent marksmanship, she also possesses mutant probability-altering powers.
UPDATE: The “merc with a mouth’ is back! Here is the first TEASER for DEADPOOL 2!
UPDATE: DAVID LEITCH is officially confirmed to direct DEADPOOL 2! Leitch better go all out with this one because it looks like FOX and the producers are going the ‘Mission: Impossible’ route of hiring a new director for each installment.
A search is already underway for another filmmaker for ‘Deadpool 3’.
But lets not get too far ahead of ourselves and look forward to ‘Deadpool 2’. Leitch will no doubt up the ante in the action department. Prepare for some ‘wick’ed mayhem.

UPDATE: Looks like we have a front-runner in ‘John Wick’ co-director DAVID LEITCH (below, right) to replace Tim Miller!
Reports are saying FOX is eyeing Leitch as their top choice to take over the helm on DEADPOOL 2. No stranger to Marvel films, Leitch is a veteran stuntman who helped elevated the action in ‘Blade’, ‘The Wolverine’, Netflix’s ‘Daredevil’, and ‘Captain America: Civil War’. Along with the overwhelming success of the action-thriller ‘John Wick’ both critically and financially, Leitch seems to be the perfect man for the job.
No offer have been made…YET. So stay tuned for confirmation.
Considering the major success of ‘Deadpool’ critically and financially, this comes as a major surprise as director TIM MILLER have chosen to exit the sequel.
Reports are saying he left due to “creative differences” with star and producer RYAN REYNOLDS. Apparently Miller wanted DEADPOOL 2 to be a more “stylistic and unique” film visually but Reynolds wants to focus more on the “raunchy comedy”. I really do not see why they could not combine the two ideas.
But that is just the first reason. The second reason is that the two are budding heads over who should be cast as ‘Cable’. Miller is very keen on casting KYLE CHANDLER (Friday Night Lights) as the gun-toting futuristic hero, but Reynolds is not feeling it.
So it seems the studio have sided with Reynolds and is now actively seeking a new director for the highly anticipated sequel.
Who would you want to take the helm for ‘Deadpool 2’? My vote is for GARETH EVANS (The Raid) or MATTHEW VAUGHN (Kingsman, Kick-Ass).
