They lose their director and you think NOW is a good time to make the sequel thread I was hopeful Liam Neeson would be Cable. I think there has been some discussion about the sequel in the first film thread and I'm sure Neeson's name was mentioned as being a candidate for the role.
Tim seemed highly knowledgable about the character in a Collider interview. I recall seeing, on top of having kept the film grounded in the love story it was. Without him it would've been Reynold's stale jokes will drag the film down unless there is some sort of anchor for the plot. IIRC they were planning on giving him another love interest in this film, which makes the whole ordeal he went through to get Vanessa back ****ing pointless in the first film.
Either Ryan's head has gotten so big that he thinks his potty humor can carry the entire film, or There were some legit creative differences that necessitated him leaving. **** Reynolds if he got him fired for being a primadona

Yup, sounds like Reynolds is getting a bit of an ego trip.
The love story plot was weak and so were most of the jokes.
Deadpool did really well because it had a brilliant and winning marketing strategy. It sucked me in, but unfortunately I was pretty underwhelmed with the film as a whole because the plot was retarded. So the next film will do fine as long as they keep up the brilliant marketing. They know this for sure, so I doubt they care about losing the director.
DP the movie was a better DP than has been in the comics in ages, which is why i, personally, enjoyed it.
Everybody and their mom has written the character at this point, and most of those writers arent funny. Neither are their moms.
I can't see Kyle Chandler as Cable. The guy's a good actor but way too young for Cable. And aging up actors always sucks. I wonder what the Collider crew'll have to say about this on Movie Talk tomorrow.
