Deadpool Director Leaves Sequel After 'Creative Differences' With Ryan Reynolds

​The old 'creative differences' angle, aye?

One of the surprise box offices hits of 2016, Deadpool ended up making more than £600 million globally on a £50 million budget, propelling a new genre of foul-mouthed, adult-targeted superhero films onto the market. But there might be trouble brewing regarding part two.

Reynolds first appeared as the sweary superhero in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, before turning the niche superhero into one of the biggest films of the year.

There's plenty of time for it be fixed... or broken more.

Or fixed.
