Watch: Tim Miller's Superhero Short Film That Got Him The DEADPOOL Directing Job
50-year-old Tim Miller just made his feature directorial debut with Deadpool, which has broken all sorts of records and become 20th Century Fox's biggest opening of all time. He's been working in visual effects since 1995, when he co-founded Blur Studio, and it's cool to see him finally get a shot at the big time.
Miller directed this cinematic trailer for DC Universe Online that we actually wrote about back in 2010, but it's resurfacing now in the wake of Deadpool's success and being singled out as a big reason for why Miller was able to secure the directing job on the movie. Apparently the executives at Fox were very impressed with it. Check it out below, either as a refresher of his earlier work or as a first-time glimpse into what he did before directing one of the biggest superhero success stories of all time.
