Academy of Art University Fosters All-Star VFX Alumni

Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame has experienced a beautiful box office debut on its opening day. On that initial day alone, Avengers: Endgame grossed a whopping $156.7 million, effectively earning the title of the second largest grossing film of all time. Within 11 short days, the film exceeded the $2 billion mark. Within the highly successful Avengers franchise, Black Panther and Infinity War are the two top grossing titles within the that universe. The aptly named “Endgame” is the final installment of the pop cultural phenomenon that is the Marvel Universe film franchise.

To watch each of these films in the right order, some fans choose to go by year that each is released, while others choose to watch them based on the order that certain events have taken place. The Avengers franchise includes many of the key Marvel based superheroes, so to really get an understanding of the Avengers trilogy as a whole, it is wise for all fans to watch the movies that took place with each individual superhero, in order to understand exactly what is going on in Avengers: Endgame before watching.

A ton of the success that has been brought to the silver screen can be attributed to the efforts of the powerful VFX team that has worked on each of the Marvel Avengers based films. Alumni who have graduated from Academy of Art University have had the distinct honor of working on the top grossing film Avengers: Endgame.
