Deadpool VFX Breakdown Reveals Just How Many Stunt Doubles Are Digital These Days

Swapping in a stunt double for an actor in a superhero movie is especially easy, since masks usually hide the character's face. But the super-human abilities of most Marvel heroes are beyond the reach of even the most talented stunt performers. That's where digital dopplegangers come in handy.

As this VFX breakdown of the highway fight scene reveals, digital stunt doubles were an integral part of realising Deadpool's deadly skills. And not only when it comes to his amazing moves and prowess with weapons. Most of the vehicles involved in the scene were digital duplicates as well, making it easy to perfectly choreograph the collisions and flips, without actually risking a performer's safety.

    I just watched now the video is gone.

    I hadn't realised CGI had gotten to that point, I didn't pick up a lot of that while watching the movie. Several sections were obviouse, but I did miss most of it, great work.
