CAPTAIN MARVEL Featurette Reveals The Movie Magic Behind Marvel's Newest Blockbuster

From de-ageing Samuel L. Jackson, to creating the Skrulls, to finding the least worst hairstyles of the '90s, hear from the filmmakers who helped bring Captain Marvel to the big screen and beyond...

Captain Marvel officially took flight this week, blasting into the MCU with rave reviews and a red-hot start at the box office. But getting Carol Danvers to fly higher, further, and faster required some incredible work by some pretty tremendous people in the movie industry.

A newly released IMAX roundtable video takes us behind-the-scenes of Captain Marvel as some of the key filmmakers — including special makeup effects head Shane Mahan, costume designer Sanja Hays, and VFX supervisor Chris Townsend — discuss their role in helping bring Marvel's latest blockbuster to the big screen (and an even bigger screen in the IMAX).

"One of the interesting things we had on this film was youthening Sam Jackson. We had to try and maintain his character and his performance throughout the entire thing, and never let the youthening step in the way of the performance," explained Townsend.

From bringing the Skrulls to life to de-ageing Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, Captain Marvel required some innovation from the visual and special effects departments. That was especially true for the intricate designs of the Skrulls.

"The paint job itself when you look at the Skrulls, it's fairly intricate and it's very design-y. If two make-up artists were doing this paint job, it might have taken two, three, four hours, and I thought the whole entire paint job for the head could just be a tattoo transfer," revealed Legacy Effects Department Head Brian Sipe. "We had to take it to the point where this whole point job happens in 15 minutes just because it was tattoos."

Beyond talking about just bringing Captain Marvel to theaters, the crew also discussed what makes the film so special on the IMAX where fans can experience about 30 minutes of the film in a special aspect ratio that truly transforms the battle sequences and establishing shots.



Set in the 1990s, Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom. 

Captain Marvel is now playing in theaters and in IMAX.
