Avatar 2: James Cameron continues to criticize Marvel and attack Thanos’ CGI

James Cameron is confident that the visual effects in avatar: The way of the water will blow the fans away.

In fact, the director said that Marvel “isn’t even close” when it comes to motion capture and creating emotional faces.

Speak with Comicbook.comCameron was asked if the explosion in superhero movies since the release of the first Avatar movie in 2009 has raised the bar when it comes to VFX.

“Obviously the big comic book movies have driven the sheer volume of the industry,” Cameron replied. “The rising tide of technology brings everyone together. It gives you higher quality artists, more tools and plugins and code [to use]. There are more talented people out there writing code.”

He added: “Our team at WETA Digital [the New Zealand effects company cofounded by Peter Jackson] has new staff all the time and it comes from that pool so it improves everything. That said, WETA FX, as it’s now called, is the best. Right?

“Industrial Light & Magic [George Lucas’ effects company used by Marvel] does a great job, but when it comes to the kind of emotional facial features we do… Thanos? Come on. Give me a break. You saw [Avatar: The Way of Water]. It’s not even close. WETA did that.”

Cameron has previously fired Marvel and DC movie characters.

“When I watch these big, spectacular movies — I watch you guys, Marvel and DC — it doesn’t matter how old the characters are, they all act like they’re in college. They have relationships, but they really don’t,” Cameron said The New York Times.

“They never hang up their spurs for their children. The things that really ground us and give us strength, love and purpose? Those characters don’t experience it, and I don’t think that’s the way to make movies.”

The way of the water received rave reviews from journalists who had the opportunity to catch a preview of the film at its London premiere earlier this week.

It will be in cinemas – in 3D – on December 16th.
