A few days ago it was reported that John Wick co-director David Leitch is frontrunner to succeed Tim Miller as director on Deadpool 2, although the original report stated that there were still other names in the mix.
Well, thanks to Deadline, we now know another two filmmakers on 20th Century Fox’s radar, with the site reporting that both Drew Goddard (Daredevil, The Cabin in the Woods) and Magnus Martens (Luke Cage, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) are also in contention.
Fox seems to be wasting little time in lining up a replacement for Miller following his departure last week owing to creative differences with star Ryan Reynolds. And that’s no surprise really given the box office success of the first movie, which became the highest-grossing instalment of the X-Men franchise when it was released earlier this year.
