VFXShow 240: Avengers: Endgame

In this episode, Matt Wallin, Jason Diamond and Mike Seymour look at the block buster mega hit Avengers: Endgame.

After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018), the universe is in ruins. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers assemble once more in order to undo Thanos’ actions and restore order to the universe (with a little help from a significant proportion of the world’s best VFX artists).

Directors: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo, and Studio VFX Supervisor was Dan DeLeeuw.

In the podcast, Mike, stated that the old Captain America/Steve Rogers in this film was digital – but it looks like he was misinformed, based on a pic actor Chris Evens posted on social media ! (Darn, Hydra – well played!). Or was he ! It is possible the image from Chris Evans is not actually the final truth…

Was Steve aged digitally or makeup? 

Actually it was mainly digital. Endgame co-director Joe Russo has commented that “As for Captain America’s transformation into an old man it is 95% CG, 5% make-up. But the voice was 100% Evans, no modification for that.”‘ There was makeup on set, but the end the movie audience see primarily digital Steve, not makeup.
