The Legendary VFX Studio Worked With the Production to Create a Look That Can Stand Out in Both Episodics and Feature Films
For Marvel Studios’ latest episodic series, Ms. Marvel, the production faced an interesting, and somewhat rare challenge. Unlike some of the characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) that are firmly established through decades of exposure, the titular character in the Disney+ exclusive series is a relatively new creation. That gave the production a little more flexibility when adapting her powers for a live-action audience, and allowed the showrunners to work with Oscar and Emmy-winning VFX studio, Digital Domain, to reinvent Ms. Marvel’s powers for a new audience.
“From the start, we knew that Ms. Marvel’s abilities were going to change for her live-action debut, but everyone involved still wanted to honor the comics,” said Aladino Debert, VFX supervisor for Digital Domain. “We went through several iterations with the production to find a balance that will impress people watching on TV, and still look great when the character makes the jump to the big screen.”
