For those still waiting for that Deadpool movie, which has seemed dead to me for a long time but is apparently still in the works, you may have already gotten a glimpse of what it could look like without even realizing it.
The opening prologue of Thor: The Dark World was actually put together by Tim Miller and his digital effects company Blur Studio, reveals FX Guide. Miller has done effects for X-Men and X2 but more importantly, is attached to make his directorial debut on none other than Fox's perpetually in development Deadpool movie.
The prologue was very well received and, impressively, is made up of almost entirely digital elements, manipulated from live action environments Alan Taylor and co. shot for the rest of the film. So is this a taste of what's in store for Deadpool?
And finally, on the matter of The Merc With the Mouth, Miller recently sounded optimistic while talking to Clevver News:
Deadpool is still alive and we're just waiting for the studio to embrace what an amazingly f***ing awesome film this would be. Ryan [Reynolds] is ready, I am ready, the fans are more than ready, we just need that elusive green light."
