Last night, we all found out about Tim Miller leaving Deadpool 2 from what looks to be a creative clash with Ryan Reynolds. It’s certainly not a great thing for the production, and does put the movie into a little limbo.
Seeing the director leave is bumming out a few people too. One of those is Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn. In a tweet, the director showed support for Miller, praising him as integral to the first film.
Honestly bummed about Tim Miller leaving Deadpool. He did an amazing job with the first one; I’d like to have seen where he’d go next.

It really is a shame Miller has gone from the sequel, as it is clear his efforts were integral to making that film the record breaking success it was. Hopefully the production gets a good replacement.
