Last October, the fans were surprised when it was announced that Deadpool director Tim Miller would not be joining the sequel. 20th Century Fox and Reynolds himself were quick to find a replacement. In a few weeks, it was announced that John Wick director David Leitch is taking over.

As per Cinema Blend, Reynolds revealed how he thinks Leitch is the perfect man for the job. He said, “He really understands those Deadpool sensibilities and where we need to take the franchise from here.”

He went on to say how he loved the movie John Wick and that “one of the things that David Leitch does that very few filmmakers can do these days is they can make a movie on an ultra tight minimal budget look like it was shot for 10-15 times what it cost.”
