When you think of Hulk fighting the Hulkbuster, most of you may immediately think of the epic battle between Tony Stark and the Hulk in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The battle was short-lived, though not without its consequences. A few lives were lost and part of the city’s buildings were leveled during the chaos that ensued between Hulk and Iron Man's Hulkbuster armor. After a hard-fought battle, Stark finally brought him down. It was a good thing that he was prepared for that contingency; the Hulkbuster armor was specifically made to go toe-to-toe with the Hulk should he ever lose control of himself.
As memorable as the #AgeofUltron scene was, that hasn’t stopped fans from creating their own interpretation of a fight between the two. Anthony McGrath crafted an astounding video on his YouTube channel and it must be seen to be believed.
The Animation Is Stunning And Shows True Fan Dedication
What can I say other than to praise this man’s hard work? The time and dedication it must have taken to complete this is impressive. The #animation is simply beautiful. The action alone is spectacular but Tony Stark's facial expressions alone must have been difficult to make as realistic as they are.
The appearance of the Hulk looks exactly like Mark Ruffalo’s interpretation of the character. With the assistance of motion-capture aficionado Andy Serkis, Ruffalo had a hand in the CGI creation of his Hulk in both of the #Avengers movies. How McGrath was able to recreate this on his own is beyond me, but it’s nearly on par with the effects #Marvel utilizes in their films.
Not only are the effects of both the Hulkbuster and the Hulk himself incredible to look at, but so is everything else. From the vehicles to the buildings, all the way down to the rubble itself, the video showcases brilliant animation. Each and every frame must have taken a very long time to complete.
We Need More High Quality Fan-Made Videos
It’s always nice to see fans come up with crazy videos, fans that aren’t afraid to show their talent publicly. It just goes to show you that you don’t need a huge budget to create something that's engaging and distinct. Videos such as this one can be loved and appreciated by anyone whether you’re a fan of #superheroes or not.
I hope that this video instills confidence in others to craft something that could bring out the best in themselves. Never say you can’t do something without having tried first. It may take some time to fully complete a project and it may not work out. But that’s the beauty of it. Having the time is hard enough, but allowing enough patience for yourself is what truly will make anything you do stand out.
