There's no argument, superhero movies have become
the dominant genre at the multiplex over the past decade. What were previously
scattered releases that only ever had mild success, are now the biggest box
office hits of the year. With such an abundance of superhero movies coming out each
year, we’ve been treated to some of the best CGI to ever grace the big screen.
From desolate cityscapes to worlds colliding, the ability and
reach of computer generated effects is seemingly endless. But, as every avid
watcher of superhero movies knows, not all CGI is created equal.
Whether it’s because
of time crunches, messy productions, or studio interference, the CGI of many blockbusters have sadly taken a hit.
Even the most polished productions that have had the luxury of substantial budgets have fallen victim to poor CGI. From DC to Marvel, no big studio is safe from the pitfalls of poor visual effects.
We'll be looking at not just the obvious examples, but also some of the more bizarre creations that have come out of some of our favorite movies in the genre.
