In true Deadpool fashion, he breaks the 4th wall and addresses the audience at various points in the opening titles, all the while stepping through scenarios that boast action and sex appeal, set to Celine Dion’s power ballad “Ashes.”
While Deadpool is portrayed in abstract environments, the character himself is photoreal. We helped develop a feature film Deadpool asset, which was then keyframe animated into scenes. Keeping in line with the Bond-esque visual approach, artists employed dynamic light & shadow, and created stylized transitions.
The opening sequence went through every department at our studio in NY, our entire team brought something special to the table.
