Deadpool Director Tim Miller Talks on Not Seeing a Competition with Batman v Superman


Director Tim Miller is having quite the great weekend with his new film Deadpool, starring Green Lantern’s Ryan Reynolds, beating records for an R-Rated Comic Book film. Before the film was released, Miller sat down with Omelet to discussed the new film, during the interview Miller states he does not see a competition with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or the proximity of the debut of the film:

“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.”

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

    How would there be competition a month and a half after the movie is released?

      There’s not, except in the heads of some fans. I think that’s who Miller is addressing.

    • Not at all, but some people are pinning the two films against each other in a very odd way, simply on the bases of they’re both comic book films.

        They are pinning every movie against BvS. Star Wars, Deadpool, Civil War, Suicide Squad….
