New Updates

Panel is now wrapping up with a clip from Iron Man and a teaser for the 10th Anniversary book that has a new sketch of the Mark 1 Iron Man armor. Comes out day and date with Avengers 4.

5:47pm

Question about Thanos design and evolution across the movies! Charlie Wen designed him prior to Brolin, and used Chitauri influence. Ryan worked on him after Brolin and the focus was to make him the most realistic CG character ever.

5:43pm

Is there still a tension between design and costuming and CG. Andy Park brought up Hela and how her atlers were CG and early designs had the antlers on her back. Taika pushed for the original Kirby look.

5:41pm

Question about designing a character before casting is done. They can do a lot of fun experimentation, but then when someone is cast it becomes a lot more real.

5:36pm

The Ancient One asks about costume storytelling and details they're proud of. Andy Park brings up how Hank Pym's design is seen through all of the Ant Man suits.

5:32pm

Was there any planning with making the different parts of the universe seen in Ragnarok and Infinity War mesh. Simple answer: Kevin Feige has a plan.

5:30pm

Question on when they move on from a design. Ryan gives a very long and good answer about how he keeps working on something until it works.

5:29pm

Guy asks if the Wasp's costume was supposed to look like a dick. They say it's not intentional and the guy obviously sees that in anything.

5:27pm

Advice on getting into this industry. Charlie Han suggests figure design.

5:25pm

Convoluted question about designing a character in subsequent movies. Ryan explains the first time is the most challenging. It's easier after that.

What character would they want to do that they haven't done yet? Andy Francisco: Wolverine

First question is if any comic artist was upset about a movie design: NO
