What to expect from The Avengers' opening sequence
The visual effects supervisor of The Avengers movie has been dropping one or two hints as to what we should expect from the film…
The Avengers are set to assemble on the big screen at the end of April in the UK, and we’ve been given a taster as to what to expect, courtesy of Chris Wells. Well is the special effects supervisor on the film, and has been chatting to Starburst about it. In particular, he’s revealed a detail or two about the opening sequence.
Obviously, don’t read on if you don’t want to know more.
"We're doing what essentially boils down to the prelude of the movie. There's a whole intro that happens before you start even getting the titles and it's pretty big”, he said. “There's nothing small in this movie. I went to a screening with all the temporary visual effects and it was pretty fleshed out. It's a long movie but it doesn't feel like it”.
Talking specifically about how Joss Whedon had approached the project, Wells said that “I think he did a very good job of setting up the characters based on what we know from the Marvel franchise, integrating them together with all their differences and similarities and then getting on with business. And just when you think the movie is a character piece it just goes nuts.'"
Finally, he also promises that “they let the Hulk be Hulk and that’s great. He acts more like the comic book Hulk”.
We like the sound of that.
