Using stunt double to sit in for actors during the filming of dangerous scenes is nothing new in Hollywood. In the past, these stunt doubles would slightly resemble the features actor in some capacity. They were highly skilled at falling and performing many other stunts that the moviescape would need them to do.
With the recent success of superhero film, there is no doubt that these movies would need the use of stunt doubles. The abilities that some of these superheroes have, makes using practical stunt doubles a bit of a challenge. In this case, the studios result to using a CGI stand-in for the featured actor or actress to be able to show the super-human capabilities of these heroes.
Deadpool has been a huge success, and while star Ryan Reynold did don the red-and-black suit for a lot of the action scenes in the film, there were some that no human would be able to pull off. This is where the digital wizard were called in to make the impossible possible. In this lovely fight sequence from the beginning of Deadpool, we get to see just how much a digital stunt double helped to fashion the scene. The studio didn’t just use human stunt doubles for the scene, they also used digital vehicles, to choreograph the scene with perfection.
This allowed the studio to sync the entire scene, and have the ability to manipulate every aspect of the carnage. This is a useful tool, especially when you see the scene play out in real-time. There would have been no way that this scene could have been a success without countless hours of man-time and studio time that would have hampered the budget.
