From the franchises of the MCU’s different protagonists, one can see that their CGI powers are amazing. Being owned by Disney, Marvel movies have access to the best and latest CGI technology available for filmmaking. From de-aging and making its heroes look like weaklings, the MCU has got some expensive tricks up its sleeves.
The scene where Robert Downey Jr. or Tony Stark was made into a teenaged Tony was unbelievably great. The technique has been used by Marvel quite a few times already, as Hayley Atwell was made into an older version of Peggy in “Ant-Man” and “Winter Soldier” and the young version of Kurt Russell in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.”
Marvel gives great attention to detail, may it be in solo scenes of the characters or an ensemble like the Avengers. Fight scenes in different Marvel movies give you the chills as you see everything unfold before your eyes, especially the ones that have to do with another realm, like with “Thor” films and “Doctor Strange.” The “Guardians of the Galaxy” franchise doesn’t even give you the slightest doubt that what you see is unreal, as its CGI looks extremely realistic.
Actors may look funny when their scenes are shot and seen without the CGI. But once everything is put together, fans can live in another world and enjoy the excitement Marvel has to offer. I can’t even remember the last time a person commented on MCU’s CGI. They may try to find things in these movies to criticize, but CGI won’t be one for sure.
