With the new projects of MCU Phase 4, fans have been constantly complaining about the poor CGI that Marvel is delivering. Reportedly, many VFX artists have come out and spoke against Marvel and refused to ever work with the company again. Many of them have said the studio has the “worst VFX management out there”.
VFX Artist revealed Marvel has poor working conditions
Many VFX artists have made allegations on the subreddit r/VFX, about the industry and their negative experiences with Marvel. Most of the people went on to say that the money and star-power aren’t worth tolerating such poor working conditions.
Is this why the visual effects look shit?— ハイドロ_spanky (matrix/ufo main) (@spankysick) July 11, 2022

Recent complaints of Marvel CGI
Recently released Taika Waititi’s flick, Thor: Love and Thunder was heavily criticized for its CGI. Many fans claim that Marvel Studios is consistently failing to meet the higher standard. A scene of Heimdal’s son in the movie was heavily trolled with the release of the film.

Bad CGI of She-Hulk
The She-Hulk trailer was heavily trolled by Marvel fans for its poor CGI and detailing of the character. It was later revealed that Marvel’s youtube channel trailer and Disney+ Youtube Channel video quality were different which created a fuss. She-Hulk series will be the first time a completely digital Marvel creation leads its own nine-episode series.
VFX artists should unionize!— Switch 🤟🔥 (@LuisN_94) July 10, 2022
There’s just no way the She-Hulk show’s VFX will be ready by mid August, that team needs an additional 6 weeks at the bare minimum!
A fan questioned, “Why is it that they demand so much, from any digital industry content creator”
Why is it that they demand so much, from any digital industry content creator, but then are miserly with paying you guys, but then turn around and profit handsomely from the "savings" they have extorted from you guys.— Tribble-Industries (@TribbleIndustr1) July 11, 2022
Reportedly, it was also revealed that Marvel gets a DNA contract signed with its actors and has a pretty tough deal if they spill out any secrets. Maybe a tough Day for Tom Holland!
Sounds like Marvel is treating their VFX talent the same way they already treated their comics talent.— MrBackspace (@MisterBackspace) July 11, 2022
A user went on to add, “when you start to overvalue actors by undervaluing artists, it becomes an unfair exchange,” which seems true.
Meanwhile the funds are shuffled around so that celebrities are paid millions of dollars. By no means is this a stab at actors but when you start to overvalue actors by undervaluing artists, it becomes an unfair exchange.— Gaetan Osman (@GaetanOsman) July 11, 2022
