Marvel has been accused of negligence by VFX staff who worked on the Avengers films.
The Blockbuster studio, which recently expanded its production to television, is behind some of the biggest theatrical releases of the last 10 years.
However, VFX artists have accused Marvel bosses of overhauling them and, in one instance, forgetting to give them an extremely tight deadline.
in one gizmodo Artikel, a VFX artist named David who worked on it Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame said his team only realized after reading an article online that the release date – and deadline – of the films had been brought forward by a full month.
“The worst was when Avengers: Infinity War and endgame came out,” David said, before claiming, “They actually brought that release forward by a month, but they hadn’t told us.”
He continued, “I remember lying on the floor with my team and one of my artists came up to me and said, ‘Hey, you see that?’ and he shows me the article that says Marvel pushed the release date up a month.”
According to David, Marvel eventually told the team that they “forgot” to bring the news to their attention.
“So we found out from a press release that we had a month less to work on all these recordings,” he claimed.
Another VFX employee called Marvel “the worst example of a lot of problems in the industry,” adding, “It would be one thing if sometimes it was really bad, sometimes it wasn’t… But with Marvel, it seems like every single time it is.” the same thing.”
The article follows previous allegations that Marvel doesn’t offer great working conditions for VFX artists, which led to criticism Thor: Love and Thunder Director Taika Waititi, who highlighted and seemingly mocked a VFX error in the film.
The majority of the claims made specifically against Marvel come from a Reddit thread titled, “I’m Honestly Sick And Tired Of Working On Marvel Shows!”, Which Is Filled With Complaints From Former VFX Artists Allegedly At MCU projects have worked.
A claim from a user named Independent-Ad419 read: “Marvel probably has the worst production and VFX management methodology out there. You can never set the show’s look until more than half of the show’s allotted time is up. The artists who work on Marvel shows are definitely not paid according to the amount of work they put in.”
The claims led to another article published by The player Earlier this year, entitled: “VFX Artists Refuse to Work with Marvel Due to Stress and Unrealistic Deadlines.”
Former VFX artist Dhruv Govill who has contributed Guardians of the Galaxy, shared the article on Twitter, writes: “Working on #Marvel shows made me leave the VFX industry. You’re a terrible customer, and I’ve seen far too many colleagues collapse from overwork while Marvel tightens their budgets.”
The Independent has reached out to Disney and Marvel Studios for comment.
