Last weekend the petition to get Quentin Tarantino to direct ‘Deadpool 2’ hit the internet and started a buzz. At the time we published this article the petition had 16,142 supporters.

This weekend while a guest at MegaCon Tampa, the creator of Deadpool, Rob Liefeld sounded off about the possibility of Tarantino helming part two of the Deadpool adventures.

“Quentin is not going to direct a sequel, he’s goings to direct his own original stuff,” said Liefeld.

The creator would not weigh in with his personal choice to the direct the film at the request of 20th Century Fox.

‘Deadpool 2’ stars Reynolds, the plot details of the sequel have been vague at best. We know that Cable, Domino, and time travel are involved. 20th Century Fox is looking at a January 2018 release date for the “Merc with a Mouth.”
