    God Jeff Sneider is insufferable. No one cares who got the scoop.

    That being said, this is quite comforting news. Definitely a good choice.

    The whole "scoop" stuff is pathetic.

    But Leitch is a good choice. Looking forward to it

    My problem with the whole entertainment scoop culture is how touchy, hyper-sensitive egotistical and narcissistic everyone is about it. Like it's some sort of dumb popularity contest.

    Granted, some followers do enable that behavior, but yeah, it's stilly.

    Yeah, b/c David Leitch is not confirmed (unfortunately).
    It seems like he's made a great impression on the studio and is the frontrunner, but has not been offered the job yet, as they will be meeting with other directors (incl. Drew Goddard and TV director Magnus Martens), too.

    And yep, Sneider should get his ego under control. But lots of 'scoopers' seem to have a pretty big ego. On the other side, Collider's Steven Weintraub seems to be a pretty humble dude, and does gets some pretty good exclusives and interviews.

    Drew Goddard is a good writer in his own right, but the fact that he's a writer could mean greater risk for creative differences than Miller had.

    While John Wick's form of stylized action wouldn't be right for Deadpool, he's worked on a large number of action films to know what is needed for a Deadpool movie. And he seems like the kind of guy who respects the writing so he doesn't seem like he'll argue too much.

    I think this would be a safe choice to make & it'd certainly put me at ease for this to be the case. Leitch would be more than competent enough to handle DP 2.

    Good pick, John Wick was great.

    And yes hope they move forward on Gambit soon.

    And by the way, it seems like David Leitch may also be into comics, as he and Chad Stahelski were influenced by the style of graphic novels for John Wick and his follow-up movie The Coldest City (in theaters next summer) is based on one.

    He does have experience with the X-Men world as well, working on Origins and The Wolverine. It's interesting to note that Heat Vision says that they want different directors handling each Deadpool installment though.

    Gambit will exist as long as Chan's passion is there, so I'm sure we'll get there eventually. Not in a rush though.

    That's fair. So long as the writing team is intact.

    Hesitant on how he handles the comedic interplay, but the action will be top-notch.

    :up: for those who want to keep this fresh by doing various takes on Deadpool

    John Wick had a very subtle, but incredibly efficient layer of humour. Not worried at all about how he handles comedic interplay. And I'm not worried at all about how he handles characters and performances, as both were top notch in his debut.

    I wasn't impressed by John Wick, so it doesn't make me feel confident. Don't cast Sofia Boutella as Domino, at least.

    Characters and performances, sure. That's also what he has over Miller.
    Still not sold on a different kind of humor.
