I reed on www.comicbooknews.com that Avengers 2 is going to have the largest visual effects of any Marvel movie so far. More than The Avengers, Captain America 2, Iron Man 3, Guardians of the Galaxy, Yeah you know what I mean.
The producer on Avengers 2 as well as the Ant-man movie, Victoria Alonso, recently talked shop at the VES Summit. There Alonso mentioned The Avengers 2 will top 3000 VFX (Visual Effects) shots, which is the largest VFX count for Marvel Studios.
- Guardians of the Galaxy had 2,750 VFX shots
- Captain America: The Winter Soldier had 2,500 VFX shots
- The Avengers had 2,200 VFX shots
The cause that Avengers 2 has so many VFX shots is that it feature the Hulk, who has a larger role in this film. It also feature Ultron, which is done with CGI made up of actor James Spader's face, likeness and movements; there also be Ultron drones, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver powers, the Hulkbuster Iron Man armor and lots of battles.
