David Leitch is beginning to make his case as a master of modern action cinema. His credits include John Wick, John Wick 2, Atomic Blonde, and now Deadpool 2. Both the Wicks & the Blonde were well received by audiences and critics and early reviews coming into RottenTomatoes are claiming Deadpool 2 is better than the original. Quite the resume for a man who, not too long ago, was taking the punches for Jean-Claude Van Damme.
Variety is reporting that his next two directorial projects will be a Fast & the Furious spinoff starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham followed by The Division (based off the Tom Clancy video game) starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain.
Deadpool 2 hits theaters May 18.
