Chatting to Collider, Leitch spoke candidly about Deadpool 2's handling of Nathan Summers (AKA Cable), the surplus of X-Force characters, and the amount of additional footage that was sentenced to the floor of the editing room.
The project's budget shall be at least $150 million, which is about as much as the first Transformers budget. "I don't think it needs to be bloated and I'm not that type of filmmaker'".

The blast was so powerful that the majority of the casualties were passers-by outside the cleared area. Ahmadi confirmed the toll, adding that the dead included four members of the security forces.
SPOILERS ahead for Deadpool 2! Jack did a great job with the character in limited time. His nearly fatherly relationship with Russell further builds Wade's character beyond merely a wisecracking killer, and his relationship with Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) reveals a vulnerability we haven't seen before.
Director David Leitch, best known for 2014's intense action hit "John Wick", infuses character and humor in his action sequences that other films lack. The final result did still manage, and it's the closet fans will have to seeing Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool and Hugh Jackman's Wolverine share the screen together. During our interview with screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick they confirmed that, "There's going to be a version of the DVD that's all new jokes, the entire movie", including the now-infamous "killing baby Hitler" scene. I just filled it.' The kitchen scene was fun. Obligatory references to past Marvel movies, especially the "X-Men" films, received forced chuckles from the audience because light-hearted jokes and banter qualifies as knee-slapping humor, apparently. There are countless pop culture references, from "Yentl" to James Bond to "Stranger Things". But just in case it is, Ryan Reynolds and company chose to tie up a few loose ends with a post-credit scene for the ages. There are deep cut references to comics and superhero movies that only hardcore fans will understand. While it still follows the same formula of what we've come to expect from a Marvel movie finale, it's executed just uniquely enough that it feels fresh.
So long story short, viewers can presumably just enjoy the entertainment value of the post-credits scenes without wondering about what they mean for the future of the Deadpool franchise. But alas, as a Deadpool film, it must be taken as a comedy, and it certainly succeeds within its genre.
