Why Do All Marvel Studios Movies Look Kind of Ugly?
Marvel Studios is the current champion of the box office. They release hit after hit. The way they have been able to create a cinematic universe over 14 films has never been done before.
With that said Marvel Studios has been criticized about the lackluster film music in their film (watch the video discussing “Why is Music from the Marvel Cinematic Universe So Forgettable?” here) and now Patrick Willems bring down the pain on how “ugly” the films are.
I’ve been a colorist for over 15 years now and I completely understand the criticism. Marvel Studios has a formula that they follow and dull color grading seems to be in that formula.
Despite ALL the negative reviews, both DC Comic films Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad were praised for their excellent cinematography, but that’s not something you never hear about Marvel Studios movies. In the video below they go deep into color grading used in Marvel films. This video created a compelling argument about why Marvel Studios made a big mistake by jumping from film to digital.
The color grading doesn’t seem to be hurting Doctor Stange at the box office. What do you think?
