See How They Make Chris Evans So Darn Handsome In The Winter Soldier VFX Reel

Chris, you helicarrier-exploding meatball!

Just kidding of course, Chris Evans is handsome all on his own. But this fascinating VFX reel from ILM does give us a look at how they created S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ, exploding helicarriers, the epic final Bucky/Cap fight, Anthony Mackie’s sweet Falcon skills, and that awesome moment where an older woman turns into Scarlett Johansson.

According to ILMVisualFX,

This reel represents a small sampling of the nearly 900 visual effects shots ILM contributed to the film created by an international crew of 300+.

The bulk of ILM’s work appears in the film’s third act and consists of the helicarrier’s massive underwater hanger, their ensuing battle, and the helicarriers themselves inside and out, sprawling digital Washington D.C. and Rosslyn environments including the Triskelion building complex on Roosevelt Island, highly detailed digital doubles for Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie).
