Deadpool 2 Will Keep The Small Scale Of The First Film

Despite the astounding success of Deadpool, it hasn’t exactly been smooth sailing so far for the upcoming sequel, Deadpool 2. After losing director Tim Miller, followed by composer Junkie XL, it looked as if the film was in a spot of trouble. Thankfully, it’s now recovered as David Leitch has been roped in to helm the highly anticipated flick, with plans to start shooting in early 2017.

With Miller now gone though, fans have begun to worry about the sequel ditching what made the original so great, that being its small scale and focus on humor and characterization. Yes, Deadpool had some absolutely fantastic action sequences and visual effects, but they certainly weren’t placed above all else as they often are in other comic book movies. That’s part of why Miller’s effort worked so well though, and according to producer Simon KinbergDeadpool 2 will follow a similar path.

The goal for us when we sat down and started talking about it was it needs to be as provocative and startling as the first film which means it can’t just be a continuation of the first film. It has tonally and stylistically be as fresh and original. That’s a big challenge especially because they had 10 years to gestate on the first movie and we don’t have that kind of time on the second movie. That’s the biggest mandate going into on the second film: to not make it bigger. We have to resist the temptation to make it bigger in scale and scope, which is normally what you do when you have a surprise hit movie. But actually stay true to the tenets of it’s the tone and the style and the humor that make it so special — it’s not the explosions and the special effects.”
