Avengers: Endgame Visual Effects Producer Jen Underdahl explained why CGI was used for the Quantum Suits and Captain Marvel’s costume.
When Ant-Man emerged from the Quantum Realm five years after Thanos decimation, the heroes of Avengers: Endgame were presented with an opportunity to use the alternate dimension as a mean of traveling back in time to retrieve the lost Infinity Stones and bring back the fallen. In order to traverse through the Quantum Realm safely, our heroes developed brand new red and white suits that resembled Ant-Man’s outfit.
However, behind-the-scenes material later revealed that the Quantum Suits were actually CG and no practical versions of the outfit were used. In a behind-the-scenes video examining the special effects of Avengers: Endgame, Visual Effects Producer Jen Underdahl explained CGI suits were used because a final design for the costume was not chosen until principal photography was well underway:
“The time suits are a combination of Ant-Man, Tony Stark, and Guardians tech. That took quite a while for us to land on. By the time we got a final version, we were already in Principal Photography. We knew we were going to build them anyway, since they had to “nano” on and off with Tony’s tech, and it ended up being that the costume department didn’t have time to develop, fit, and fabricate all the costumes for those hero characters, so we ended up doing them digitally.”
Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel also appeared in Avengers: Endgame and CGI was used for her costume as well. As Jen Underdahl explained, the design for Captain Marvel’s costume was not complete by the time Brie Larson started filming the Marvel Studios epic:
“Her suit, every time you see it in the movie, when she’s in her full costume, is digital. Again, the designs for those suits were not ready in time for us to photograph Brie. When you saw her at the beginning, as she’s rescuing Tony Stark, when you see her come back, when she’s talking to Nat in the Avengers compound, with Rocket and Nebula, and then in the final battle when she comes back and kind of saves the day, that’s all the digital suit.”
Brie Larson will reprise her role as Carol Danvers in the Captain Marvel sequel. In the meantime, fans can rewatch the first Captain Marvel film on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
Here is the official synopsis for Avengers: Endgame:
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Benedict Wong, Jon Favreau, Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Josh Brolin.
