Captain America Civil War Visual Effects

Just last week we learned that the suit that Chadwick Boseman wears as Black Panther was created entirely in post-production by visual effects. Directors Anthony & Joe Russo confirmed that the look they wanted the suit to have on camera simply wasn’t possible to create practically without having a suit that would have been much more torturous than the suit that was worn on set (which was already rather inconvenient to wear, especially in the hot heat of Atlanta, Georgia where much of the movie was shot).

Now we can see how visual effects were used to bring Black Panther’s suit to the big screen in the way that Anthony & Joe Russo wanted. A visual effects reel from the company Cinesite gives us a glimpse into the level of details that went into creating the suit, as well as Hydra’s Siberian base where the other super soldiers were being stored, and the Spider-Man centric end credits scene.

Zack Snyder behind the scenes of Batman V Superman

Chadwick Boseman is a bonafide Marvel superhero now, having made his debut as Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War in May. But he’s a superhero fan, too, and like a lot of us he set aside some time earlier this year to check out that other big superhero-on-superhero movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Unfortunately, also like a lot of us, he came away disappointed.

Where Boseman differs from the general moviegoing public, though, is that he knows firsthand what the process of making a big-budget superhero movie is like. The Marvel star recently shared his thoughts on what exactly went wrong with Warner Bros. / DC’s Batman v SupermanRead More »

Black Panther Plot Details

Chadwick Boseman‘s T’Challa may have made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Captain America: Civil War, but he raises many questions that are still unanswered when the credits roll. Some of this is due to him being a supporting player in a movie that is really about Captain America and Iron Man, but much of it has to do with the fact that he’s going to be the subject of his own solo adventure, due out in 2018.

So fret not! Boseman himself says that any of your lingering Black Panther questions will be answered in the next movie.

Black Panther Suit Created by Visual Effects

The creation of the entirely computer generated superhero suit for Green Lantern in the 2011 film was so bad that star Ryan Reynolds mocked it when he played Deadpool earlier this year. However, it turns out that it’s possible to have an entire superhero suit created with visual effects, and you probably didn’t even know that it happened this past summer.

In Captain America: Civil War, we met T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), a prince of Wakanda tragically turned king of the nation when an explosion kills his father. But in addition to being the new leader of his people, T’Challa is also the warrior known as Black Panther. And it turns out that the suit he wears just couldn’t be perfected practically, so they opted to have it created entirely with visual effects by Industrial Light & Magic. Find out more about the Black Panther suit created by visual effects after the jump. Read More »

Black Panther tone

The Marvel cinematic universe has tended to be lighter in tone, especially compared to the gloom and doom of the DC universe. But within the MCU, some films are funnier than others, with Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy on one end of the spectrum and the relatively somber Captain America films on the other. And Black Panther? According to star Chadwick Boseman, it’ll fall on the “darker” and “grittier” side of things.  Read More »
