Arriving home with extensive line-up of extras detailing the development of this highly anticipated addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Captain Marvel includes Featurettes that highlight the transformative journey of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel and her character’s impact on audiences around the globe; the influence of Nick Fury, played by Samuel L. Jackson, on significant events within the MCU; the perfect pairing of directors Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck; the ongoing conflict between the Skrulls and the Kree; and the raw talent behind the fetching feline named Goose. Viewers also gain access to six deleted scenes, director commentary, a gag reel loaded with funnies, flubs and Flerkens, and never-before-seen concept art and production photography.


I had the opportunity to chat with VFX Supervisor, Chris Townsend, who told me everything about this production. This is his 5th movie with Marvel Studios as a VFX Supervisor and Chris was very excited to share his “secrets”, his experience, how he works with different vendors, he spoke about the scene when Captain Marvel gets her power, and much more.
