Avengers: Infinity War is easily one of the most technologically ambitious films of 2018, with artists and animators being called upon to create entire characters and worlds out of thin air. One of those challenges involved recreating Hugo Weaving’s Red Skull without the involvement of Weaving himself. Actor Ross Marquand may have taken over that role this time, but the full story of bringing Red Skull to life in Infinity War is far more complicated.
IGN’s Jim Vejvoda recently interviewed Digital Domain’s Kelly Port and Marvel Studios’ Dan DeLeeuw about the technical challenges involved in recreating this iconic villain and establishing his new role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Be sure to explain our breakdown of how Red Skull was brought back within MCU lore.
