“Deadpool” director Tim Miller recently discussed the sequel film, which while already expected just recently became official. In an interview, Miller shared his thoughts on the film, its flaws from his point of view, and whether he prefers the sequel to be titled simply “Deadpool 2” or with a subtitle.
In a recent interview with Collider, Miller said, “I’m going to do ‘Deadpool 2.’ Barring an unforeseen accident, I will be doing ‘Deadpool 2.'”
However, the film director was not able to share anything specific about the film just yet. Aside from the sequel featuring the time-travelling mutant Cable, who has been a fitting teammate of Deadpool many times in the comic books, any details about the plot of the film remain unknown. This is mainly because the script is still being written.
“The writers have been working on the script,” Miller shared. “The script comes first. You’ve got to get that.”
With the success of the filmboth on reviews as well as fan reception through box office recordsone might think that “Deadpool” is the “perfect” superhero film. However, Miller, despite being the director of the film, still believes that it is far from being perfect. He sees the film as flawed in its own way, and the sequel will give him the chance to improve on those parts.
“I don’t look at ‘Deadpool’ and think, ‘Oh, that’s a perfect movie.’ I look at it and go, ‘Oh, God, there’s so much stuff I could do better,” he shared. “What you don’t want to do is all the stupid stuff like ‘Oh, now it has to be twice as big because people are going to be bored!’ or ‘It’s going to have three times the villains!'”
Also, the film director added that one of the parts of the film that he wants to improve on for the sequel is the scope, as he felt that though the film was well-received, it lacked scope.
“It feels like a small movie to me and I feel like I could have done a much better job of getting us out there and adding some scope,” Miller said. “I don’t think I did a good job with establishing shots and scope and making it feel like a bigger world. It feels like a small indie movie, and some of that works well, but some of it I think I could have done a better job of making this feel like a world a little more.”
Lastly, Miller added that rather than the sequel simply being “Deadpool 2,” he’d rather have it have a subtitled title instead.
