Deadpool Director: Don’t Believe What You Read On The Internet


During a conversation with the CG Garage podcast, director Tim Miller discussed his exit from Deadpool 2 and said you shouldn’t believe what you’ve heard on the Internet. Reports advised that Miller left due to creative differences with Ryan Reynolds, particularly over the casting of Kyle Chandler as Cable, which Miller wanted and Reynolds didn’t:

On the rumor he wanted Kyle Chandler as Cable: “I wanted to do the same thing, Kyle Chandler was not going to be Cable.”

On the speculation of his departure: “I didn’t want to make some stylized movie that was three times the budget. 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.”

On rumors of arguments with Reynolds and the screenwriters: “All this stuff that I read kind of kills me, even when some people go ‘the movie was really hard to make.’ The movie was a joy to make – I think you see it onscreen. We all had such a good time – had a few arguments in post, but nothing more than usual.”
