Before and After VFX: Avengers Endgame (2019)

In honor of Avengers: Endgame hitting Blu-ray today, here’s a few behind the scenes shots from Captain America’s time-traveling mano a mano versus himself. Photos via The Art of VFX’s interview with Endgame visual effects producer Carlos Ciudad.

To illustrate how the volume of effects shots in a Marvel Cinematic Universe extravaganza has expanded, here’s Marvel co-president Louis D’Esposito from the book Marvel Studios: The First Ten Year:
