DEADPOOL Director Says He's A Fan Of Zack Snyder's Epic Take On Superheroes

While Deadpool celebrates his box office triumph with a chimichanga fest, director Tim Miller recently spoke to Omelet about the film's visual effects, the right amount of comedy needed, and Zack Snyder's epic take on superheroes...

While the Merc With the Mouth is taking over the box office, director Tim Miller spoke to Omelet about his transition from visual effects to making his directorial debut with Deadpool and never giving up on his dream. "Never give up, because for me, at age 50, it seemed that my chance [to be a director] would not come over but appeared mainly because I stayed in the game and refused to give up. If you keep trying, things end up lining up," said the first time director. "The biggest challenge is to convince people that you know more than just visual effects If you do not have a resume to suggest that you can work with actors or a live-action team, it is difficult to convince people to give him that opportunity. Luckily, I've worked with many actors in motion capture and dubbing process, and in commercial art directors, so I already had some experience. and having a company [Blur Studio, specializing in effect] was an advantage, because you already manage many people, and direct a movie is basically managing people."

Having a character like Deadpool doing crazy and exagerrated stunts on screen would require some visual effects magic and Miller's background has given him insight on how much CG is enough. "Sometimes, especially working with stunt, rather than try something physically, I feel comfortable to say, 'you know what? I think we can make this decision with a digital stunt '. Or make a whole sequence in CGI, to buy time. Or tell us not to worry about the continuity of the blow and fall, because I will replace it with a digital stunt in the middle of the air. Things like that." The director then went on to talk about finding the perfect balance between action and comedy. "I feel like if I tried to make Deadpool just an action movie, it would not compete with films that are four times our budget, as Avengers, then the action we have is unique, and and sensational considering our budget, but what makes it special is the comedy. And the R censorship [17 years in the US], obviously."

Miller also talked about Deadpool's fourth wall breaking jokes about fellow superhero films and how he's a fan of Zack Snyder's take on Batman v Superman. "We have several jokes about superheroes, but I do not want to make any specific joke with this film," stated Miller. "It would be strange to make a joke with a film that has not premiered yet. And besides, I like what Zack [Snyder] does, like your sense of epic. I think it was this epic bid that led me to read comics before anything else. I'm more of a fan of this heroic side that the comedy itself, although I like the mix that exists in Deadpool."
