With “Deadpool” having garnered a huge fan following, details about its sequel have already begun to spill.
In a recent interview with Comicbook.com, Tim Miller spoke about “Deadpool” and the sequel and shared that he plans to make it on a similar scale as its predecessor, he said:
“I don’t think bigger is better. You tell a story that’s organic to the character. Deadpool’s world doesn’t mean you have to go bigger. I don’t think the fans of the movie like it because we had big effects.”
As noted by CinemaBlend, the budget for the “Deadpool 2” will just remain the same; this would restrict the filmmaker from making the movie on a larger scale. Also, the appeal of the first instalment was in the fact that it was done on a small scale. The story had Wade Wilson hunting down Ajax so that he could help reverse the scars on his body. The movie didn’t involve Deadpool saving the world or worlds or having to portray himself as the ultimate superhero.
So, the setting worked and the movie received accolades from audiences across the globe. There is another advantage of the budget being small, it offers the makers that much more creative freedom. However, it does severely restrict the usage of larger-than-life sets. The director also shared, that going big with the sequel “wouldn’t be honest to who he is and why people like him.”
Many fans may agree that the charm of the movie was because “it had a lot of heart” and came sans all the effects and big-time sets. It does seem like the right route to go with the sequel since Deadpool turned out to be a one-of-a- kind character that many moviegoers may not have seen before.
