3. Chad Stahelski (John Wick)
Some directors are simply content with procedural action. Guy comes up from cover, shoots another guy, repeat for 20 more guys. Then, there are filmmakers like Chad Stahelski, a former stunt coordinator who made his debut with John Wick in 2014. His shootouts are more akin to ballet than combat, with terrifically brutal violence meshed with immaculate choreography. The fights in the first Deadpool were solid but were slightly lacking in the stylistic department. If Deadpool 2 is looking to amp up the action above all else, Stahelski is the guy. He would do wonders with the character’s agility and wide variety of weapons, and seeing comedy integrated into such impressive sequences would be the icing on the cake. Plus, he and his partner David Leitch assisted the Russo Brothers with the airport scene in Captain America: Civil War, so he already has his foot deep in the pool.
