Mashable reports, however, that no offer has been made, yet, as there are several directors also in the mix.
David Leitch has worked on stunts for a countless amount of movies, including “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” which was Ryan Reynolds’ first movie as the Deadpool character. Leitch also made his directorial debut by co-directing John Wick. He was too busy directing “The Coldest City” to direct “John Wick: Chapter 2,” with returning director, Chad Stahelski, but still serves as an executive producer.
Leitch is a totally fantastic and welcomely unexpected choice to take on “Deadpool 2.” What do you guys think about Leitch as a possible director? Let us know in the comments below.
“Deadpool 2” is currently slated to hit theaters March 2, 2018.
