'Deadpool 2' Has David Leitch As Its Frontrunner For Director

Deadpool 2 has a strong contender for the directing positon, in the form of John Wick helmer David Leitch. Mashable are reporting that he is being eyed by 20th Century Fox as the likely candidate for director.

David Leitch is strongest amongst the pool of candidates, including Drew Goddard and Magnus Martens, for the positon of director.

20th Century Fox found themselves in the position due to the recent departure of Tim Miller, director of the first film, who left due to having creative differences with Ryan Reynolds, star and producer of the film.

Leitch has had a history with Fox, having being the fight coordinator of X-Men Origings: Wolverine, which starred Reynolds as the Merc with the Mouth. Leitch has also co-made the John Wick film that has the best fight and stunt work I've seen in a long while.

Me personally if they do indeed hire David Leitch I will be very pleased and excited for Deadpool 2.

In other Deadpool 2 news a shortlist of actress popped online for the role of Domino, the list includes Lizzy Caplan, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Sienna Miller, Sofia Boutella, Stephanie Sigman, Mackenzie Davis, Ruby Rose, Eve Hewson, Kelly Rohrbach, and Sylvia Hoeks.
