Thank goodness for modern effects and CGI!
We live in a time when it feels like superhero movies hit the theater every month. Am I getting sick of it? Well, hell no!
Growing up as an avid comic book reader and Saturday morning cartoon viewer in the 80’s and 90’s, you can just imagine I’m always delighted beyond measure whenever I hear new movies or TV series are being made for some of my favorite spandex-clad champions.
Sure, not every superfilm or superseries out there is a masterpiece but I really wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s a definite pleasure for me to see that superheroes have officially become ‘cool’ and a very accepted part of pop culture.
Besides, there were times when these characters looked really cheesy. Back in the days, the effects weren’t as good and the costumes were, well, really terrible-looking.
Browse below and enjoy a quick look-back:
In a time when CGI tech wasn’t around yet, it was only Lou Ferigno who can play the role of the Green Goliath.
The old version looks more like a Viking than a God of Thunder.
Hugh Jackman did age well, didn’t he?
For those who hate the new Superman costume, would you rather have the old one?
Can we all agree that Julie Newman rocked the catsuit better than Anne Hathaway?
In the immortal words of Tom Holland: “Hey, everyone!”
The old one looks like a bad costume from a Halloween shop.
Can’t argue that the Jared Leto Joker looks really, really scarier!
Honestly, I can’t decide which one I like better.
If you’ve seen the recent Avengers film, you know what happens next.
Benedict Cumberbatch, baby yeah!
Who’s the better Cap between Matt Salinger and Chris Evans? We think the answer is pretty obvious!
Speaking of which, I can’t wait for the new movie.
Vintage wins this round I think. The new suit reminds me more of the Nolan Batman than Robocop himself.
Since the Ultimate Marvel Nick Fury was inspired by Samuel L. Jackson, it’s just right he played the role, too.
In case you haven’t been watching the new CW series, John Wesley Shipp (left) plays as Henry Allen, the father of Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen/The Flash (right).
They both look super!
Mascots and practical effects vs CGI and motion capture.
Now was that fun or what? And yeah, thank goodness for modern effects and CGI, right?
