For more than 10 years, we’ve been following Marvel superheroes’
destinies, and sometimes the characters’ journeys were more breathtaking
than the series as a whole. Many actors who have taken part in these
films have become big stars and now have millions of fans all over the
Chris Evans’ transformation started in Captain America: The First Avenger where he was turned into a short, slender guy from a 220-lb man. For this reason, another person was used whose body was “attached” to the character’s face. In the new film, Steve Rogers appears as a nice old man made possible by makeup artists.
Almost all Marvel movies are connected, and the actors easily
travel through time and appear in different looks. Sometimes only makeup
artists are responsible for these transformations, but very often, the
help of visual effect experts is needed. For example, the same people
who worked on Brad Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button worked on making Robert Downey Jr.’s character look younger in Captain America: Civil War.
In the new Avengers: Endgame, many characters change
their looks, but the green monster’s changes are more mental. Mark
Ruffalo’s character finally achieved harmony with his inner beast and
turned into a cute, charming giant with stubble, fashionable glasses,
and a size 16 XL wool cardigan.
Chris Hemsworth’s character has changed drastically over the last 8 years. In the first movie, it seems that too much perhydrol was used. But fortunately, in the Avengers films, his eyebrows and beard became darker and his hair got even longer. But the transformation in Endgame shocked even the most loyal Marvel fans. No one was prepared for the beer belly and flabby body on the God of Thunder.
Captain Marvel takes place in the ’90s, so Marvel studio
had to rejuvenate Samuel L. Jackson and make him 25 years younger.
In the previous films, this expensive and difficult trick was used only
in a few scenes, and in Captain Marvel, colonel of S.H.I.E.L.D., Nick Fury, remains
young throughout the whole movie. It’s hard to imagine how much time
the visual effect artists had to spend on the actor to get the desired
2. Sebastian Stan — James “Bucky” Barnes (Winter Soldier)
After an accident, Bucky, Captain America’s best friend, gets captured and turned into Winter Soldier with a bionic arm.
Steve helps him remember who he is and the doctors from the secret
country of Wakanda cure Barnes, and he then joins the Avengers’ side.
In several scenes, Sebastian’s real arm was removed with the help
of computer technology.
