We all know that John Wick co-director David Leitch is going to give us an awesome action-packed Deadpool sequel. That's just a given, but he's never really talked about what he's actually planning to do with Deadpool 2... until now. During an interview with Empire, Leitch says he wants to deliver more action and expand on that irreverent tone. He says:
“There's more action in this film. I hope we can expand it and make it interesting in an 87Eleven* kinda way."
We've all see what kind of action he can deliver thanks to the John Wick franchise, and that's one of the reasons we were all so excited to see him jump on board to direct Deadpool 2 in the first place. We knew he was going to up the ante! He goes on to explain that the irreverent tone is what drew him into the franchise, saying:
“The completely irreverent tone was the thing that won me over about the first Deadpool movie. I want to deliver on what they did and at the same time hopefully expand the universe.”
We've still got awhile before we see anything from this movie, but I can't help but think that Leitch is going to deliver an action-packed film that will be unlike anything that we've ever seen before.
As of right now, I'm just eagerly awaiting the announcement of who will play Cable in the film. Deadpool 2 is scheduled for release in 2018.
