Tim Miller Departs Deadpool 2
Bad news from the Deadpool camp with news that director Tim Miller has left the sequel. This could be a spanner in the works for 20th Century Fox as they attempt to find a new person to helm the film.

Miller will reportedly focus on his own franchise project, an adaptation of the best-selling novel, Influx. Deadpool 2 is still pencilled in for a January 2018 release so it remains to be seen if this departure delays the production in any way.
