0:30 – Not all The Hulk’s activities were digitally rendered. Here we see an element from the sequence where the monster smashes through the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier in out-of-control pursuit of Black Widow, and a giant green shape actually crashes through a practical set.
“That was built by the special effects supervisor Dan Sudick,” says White. “When [Hulk] is chasing somebody, he’s not going to worry about smashing through a wall to get to them. Dan built this steel armature on a track that he could pull at running speed all through the set. What it gave us was a lot of fantastic destruction — real glass and real steel beam blasting apart. That makes our job of integrating a digital character much easier.”
