"Studios Are Way Too Reliant On CGI" — We're Curious To Know Your Opinion On The CGI In Each Marvel Film And Show

Avengers: Endgame was the pinnacle of CGI, change our minds!

Recently, it seems like Marvel fans all over social media have been ~very~ vocal about their opinions on the CGI seen in the MCU — especially for more recent releases.

Marvel have fallen off a cliff with Doctor strange 2 and Thor Love and Thunder. First time ever I can say that the cgi at parts in both films is like a tv film only. Woefully poor writing.

“the cgi is bad” “the greenscreen is bad” have you ever tried having fun

From complaints about how scenes look or the overuse of CGI to more ~valid~ counter-complaints about how the artists employed by Marvel aren't given enough time to put together perfection — the people have a lot to say on this topic.
