Looking back on some of the truly horrible CGI that gets shoved into movies, even very expensive would-be blockbusters, the Hulk (from Avengers: Age of Ultron) was amazing. But how did he get to be so darn awesome?
Wired tells the tale.
All I can say, is that they did a fabulous job. Very seldom did I catch myself thinking “oh, this scene’s entirely CGI”, which is a near-miracle.
Here’s hoping other effects studios learn from ILM’s example and stop making CGI that sucks.
