Default Re: Deadpool Spin-off Confirmed - Part 1

Was looking around for Tim Miller info and found out he was the Director of some cinematic game stuff and is one of the owners of Blur Studio. Im sure most have already seen these. Dude seems to dig comics.
He Directed the DC ONline trailer

Dc online interview with Jim Lee and Tim Miller

Dont know if he directed this but his company Blur made it so he was involved somehow.
SW Old Republic trailer.

I think its safe to say Deadpools gonna have some cool action scenes for sure after watching these.

Also a good article from hit fix. Heres a few paragraphs.
Tim Miller is a well-respected name in the FX community, and Blur Studio has done some impressive work for films and in the world of video games. I know people who have worked with Miller, and he's evidently a strong collaborator with a genuine filmmaker's sensibility. One of the projects I wish would get a greenlight somewhere is the "Heavy Metal" anthology that was set to feature segments by Jim Cameron, Zack Snyder, David Fincher, David Prior, and, yes, Tim Miller. I would love to see what that movie would be like, and the descriptions I've heard make it sound like it would have been a hell of a way to introduce guys like Miller and Prior as filmmakers surrounded by names that could have sold some tickets. Instead, it looks like Miller's going to step up to a high-profile gig his first time out.

I've seen some people making comparisons to "Spawn," which was directed by FX wizard Mark Dippe, or the Strause Brothers directing "Alien Vs Predator: Requiem," and automatically making the jump to saying that Miller's not a good choice. I think regardless of background, every director is different, and one reason Miller could be an inspired choice is because the script is an enormous technical challenge, and whoever shoots the film is going to have to find a way to bring some pretty outrageous visual ideas to life. Miller could bring his considerable expertise in bringing the impossible to life to bear in figuring out a way to shoot the action.
