Video: When two characters with super-human abilities are duking it out on a busy hovertrain track deep inside a subterranean mine, you assume there’s some Hollywood magic at work. VFX studio DNEG pulls back the curtain to reveal its post-production work on Black Panther’s climactic fight scene, including Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa going for a fun sled ride.
And if you’ve ever wondered how the actors in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are able to slip into those skin-tight costumes, the truth is that most of the time they don’t have to. As this behind-the-scenes clip also reveals, both T’Challa and Killmonger’s super suits were mostly realised using extensive CG body doubles and replacements that are nearly impossible to distinguish from the real actors.
