VFX artists who worked with Marvel Studios on Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame have said the studio failed to notify them when release dates for these movies were brought forward.

Many voices in the VFX industry have recently been speaking out about the unbearable workloads forced upon them by Marvel Studios as a client. Their testimonies have shone a light on the impact of Marvel’s CGI-heavy movies on the VFX artists who help make the films a reality.

The most recent confession to come from sources in the VFX industry reveals their workload was seemingly overlooked by Marvel when the last two Avengers movies were given earlier release dates.

VFX Artists Continue To Speak Out On Marvel Studios

A new report shared by Gizmodo included new comments from VFX artists who had been working on Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame for Marvel Studios.

One VFX artist revealed that their team never received any notification from Marvel Studios when Avengers: Endgame was given an earlier release date than originally planned. The film was initially due to arrive in May, before being moved to April.

Revealing that the VFX artists working on the movie had to find out about their new deadline via a press release, a source said:

“The worst was when Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame were coming out. They actually bumped up that release by a month but they hadn’t told us. I remember being on the floor with my team and one of my artists comes to me and says, ‘Hey, you see this?’ and he shows me the article saying Marvel bumped the release date up a month … So we found out from a press release that we had one less month to work on all these shots.”

The anonymous VFX artist said that when their team eventually heard back from Marvel, the studio claimed they had “forgotten” to notify them of the change. While the cast and crew of She-Hulk recently expressed their solidarity with VFX workers, executives at Marvel Studios are yet to make any comment on the recent statements from VFX artists.

Here is the synopsis for She-Hulk, the MCU’s next live-action release:

“She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” follows Jennifer Walters as she navigates the complicated life of a single, 30-something attorney who also happens to be a green 6-foot-7-inch superpowered hulk.

Marvel Studios’ She-Hulk: Attorney at Law stars Tatiana Maslany, Mark Ruffalo, Tim Roth, Benedict Wong, Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segarra, Jameela Jamil, Jon Bass, and Renée Elise Goldsberry.
