Tim Miller Reveals Original DEADPOOL 2 Plans, Including Copycat And The Thing Vs. Juggernaut

Terminator: Dark Fate director Tim Miller left Deadpool 2 over creative differences with Ryan Reynolds, but he's now revealed some of his original plans and, well, it sounds absolutely awesome...

Deadpool was a critical and commercial hit, so no one was surprised when Tim Miller signed up to direct the sequel. Unfortunately, creative differences led to him walking away from the project and he set his sights on the Terminator franchise instead. Now, thanks to The Playlist, we have new details on what the filmmaker originally had planned for the R-Rated sequel.

It was always the plan for Wade Wilson's relationship with the young Reggie to be a big part of the movie, but Miller wanted a "[comic accurate] Cable who was 6 feet, 7 inches." That doesn't exactly sound like the 5 feet, 10 inche Josh Brolin. 

Vanessa would have also had a far more satisfying story arc and would not have been killed off within the first few minues. Miller planned to transform her into Copycat and would have delved into the love story between her and Wade in a far more in-depth and satisfying manner. Apparently, he "fought hard to have that in there," and tried to get Fox to keep that arc in the sequel to no avail.

Here's where things get really exciting, though. 

Apparently, Miller received the green light from the studio to include Fantastic Four character The Thing. As a result, we would have seen the hero "throwing down with Juggernaut" in the final battle!

Honestly, this all sounds a million times better than what we ended up getting in Deadpool 2, and while that movie was still well-received, it's hard to escape the feeling it could have been better.
