There's no denying that Deadpool 2 has easily become one of the most highly anticipated comic book movie sequels in recent memory. The original film blew audiences away when it hit theaters earlier this year, and it handily became the highest grossing R-rated movie of all time. That being said, our excitement has been dampened by the recent announcement that director Tim Miller departed the project following creative differences with Ryan Reynolds. In the face of such a setback, some passionate fans have started a petition demanding that legendary filmmaker Quentin Tarantino sign on to the sequel as Miller's replacement.

Although there's no guarantee that this petition will even pan out, we think it opens up a fascinating dialogue about Tarantino's possible involvement in the project. In fact, there may be no modern filmmaker more qualified to continue Wade Wilson's story than the man behind Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained. With that in mind, we have compiled a list of reasons why we think Quentin Tarantino should helm Deadpool 2. Take a look at our arguments and let us know what you think! Without further ado, let's get started with Tarantino's own personal passion for pop culture...

Reservoir Dogs

His Knowledge And Love Of Pop Culture Would Blend Perfectly With Deadpool's Personality

The opening scene from Quentin Tarantino's first major movie, Reservoir Dogs, will tell you everything that you need to know about his pop culture sensibilities. He can take a simple conversation about Madonna's "Like A Virgin," and spin it out into a beautifully complex and engaging analysis of seemingly mundane aspects of pop culture. That's Quentin Tarantino in a nutshell; every single one of his movies has an obvious love and reverence for the nuances of pop culture, and that would blend perfectly with Wade Wilson's incredibly referential personality. The original Deadpool featured innumerable cultural references, from Green Lantern to Golden Girls, but Tarantino's involvement would take the sequel to the next level.
