T.J. Miller prom­ises 'more Dead­pool' movies af­ter se­quel

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

T.J. Miller has promised there will be plenty more 'Dead­pool' movies. The 36-year-old ac­tor will reprise his role as Weasel - the best friend of Ryan Reynolds' tit­u­lar su­per­hero - in the up­com­ing se­quel to the 2016 epony­mously ti­tled Marvel movie and is con­fi­dent about the fran­chise's fu­ture. Al­though he ad­mits he is "sur­prised" at how well re­ceived the first 'Dead­pool' was. Asked if he ex­pected it to do so well, he said: "Oh yeah ... We had no idea! Now we're go­ing to make more 'Dead­pools' and there will be more R-rated su­per­hero genre films. So that's, re­ally good. "All we need is for 'Dead­pool 2' to be great." The flame-haired star is proud of 'Dead­pool' and thinks it is the per­fect movie to "cleanse the palate" af­ter movies like 'Fan­tas­tic Four'. He told SFX Mag­a­zine: "He's al­most the an­ti­dote to the poi­son that is those very milk-toast su­per­hero genre films. "Like 'Fan­tas­tic Four' came out and ev­ery­one was like, 'What are they do­ing?' "i like 'Dead­pool' be­ing present ev­ery cou­ple of years to cleanse the palate." In the mean­time, Miller said the sec­ond in­stall­ment won't fol­low the "same [story] in a dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tion" and will in­stead in­volve "dif­fer­ent stakes". He said re­cently: "It's not go­ing to be like 'Hang­over 2', it's not go­ing to be the same movie in a dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tion, for in­stance. It's got dif­fer­ent stakes, dif­fer­ent things hap­pen, some pretty tragic, dark thing hap­pens in the first part of the film, in the be­gin­ning, and the rest of the film is kind of deal­ing with that, so that's in­ter­est­ing. But Weasel re­mains just ab­so­lutely the most self­ish in­di­vid­ual on the face of the planet."
