Thanos is undoubtedly one of Marvel’s most memorable on-screen villains, thanks both to Josh Brolin’s performance, and the visual effects team who designed the character and captured the performance.

In honor of the occasion, we sat down with visual effects supervisors Dan Deleeuw, Russell Earl, and Kelly Port, as well as directors Anthony and Joe Russo to talk about bringing Thanos to life.
