The Low Down ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Would Be So Different Without Special Effects – See For Yourself Published 6 months ago on Sep 2, 2018 By Jade Wilson Avengers: Infinity War is easily one of the most visually stunning films this year. With so many talented people behind the scenes, you’ll find something new with each viewing. The visual effects are what made this film so exciting. We look at how some of those marvelous scenes would be without special effects. As expected, spoilers abound! Wakanda Forever Unfortunately, the luscious landscape of Wakanda isn’t real. For select scenes in Infinity War, a green screen was used. In order to get a full grasp on the world, the Russo Brothers contacted Ryan Coogler. The director brought over Oliver Schulz to lend them a hand. “I was still wrapping on their other production Black Panther when I began on this show. Having worked on several Marvel shows prior, it gave a sense coming onto this one that I was seeing old friends again,” Schulz told Art of VFX. Marvel Thank You, Sweet Rabbit Thor, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot head to Nidavellir to find a weapon to defeat Thanos. The space station was worked on my Method Studios. According to VFX supervisor Greg Steele, it was somewhat of a tall task. “The challenges revolved around building an environment that could be easily animated or posed per shot, having enough detail that we could be a foot from the ring surface and also pull out and across long distances and still retain the sense of scale and detail necessary, and in the end be efficient enough to render in many shots,” he told Art of VFX. Marvel We’re In The End Game One moment ripped from the comic books involved Ebony Maw torturing Doctor Strange. Andrew Morley of Cinesite had to work with actor Tom Vaughan-Lawlor to get Maw perfected. “Tom is around 5ft 9 and Maw was 7ft 2; we needed to allow for that and so we played around a lot with his stride length and proportions to get them to sit right,” he told Art of VFX. Marvel I Don’t Feel So Good Easily, the most heartbreaking part of Infinity War involves the disintegration of heroes. Out of everyone, Peter Parker’s death was a bit too much to handle. Created by Weta Digital, that particular death had to be given its proper screen time. “We had to make sure that it worked really, really well, because it was so drawn out, and so it had to withhold very high levels of scrutiny because we were holding right on Spidey’s face over Tony’s shoulder, through that,” lead VFX supervisor Matt Aiken told Screen Rant. Marvel No Resurrections This Time Thanos‘ overall appearance has been one to behold during the Marvel films. During shoots, Josh Brolin had to use a more realistic Infinity Gauntlet to get into character. Digital Domain handled all of the special effects for the Mad Titan. “The details of the costume and the textural detail of the skin, these are all things that took months, and maybe even close to a year, of going back and forth between Marvel and our teams,” visual effects supervisor Kelly Port told The Verge.
