MCU Phase 4 Without CGI

CGI can create visually incredible scenes and sequences, and Marvel’s Phase 4 uses VFX more than ever before. MCU Phase 4 entries Spider-Man: No Way Home, Wandavision, Eternals, Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Loki have brought that visual splendor to both movie theaters and on TV screen via Disney+. There are countless digital artists working on these projects, but that only tells half the story. The truth is, VFX supervisors say over and over again that it’s important for artists to have real-life references so that the CGI can be as photo-realistic as possible. And ideally the references are in camera via sets or props.

It’s fascinating to look at the MCU’s Phase 4 with and without CGI so you can see just how far artists need to go to bring the stories of your favorite Marvel heroes to life. Sometimes it’s just removing wires, or adding webbing. Other times, it means creating a whole detailed world we’ve never seen before, like in the Disney+ series Loki. Viva la CGI!
