It might be the A-list stars donning the capes and masks, but the real heroes of today's CGI-heavy comic book movies are the special effects artists — the men and women who really make it all possible. Of course, if you're not convinced that's the case, just try watching those movies before the effects were added in.

2014 was a big year for Marvel movies — beyond the obvious successes of the MCU, Fox also released its eagerly awaited X-Men sequel Days of Future Past. As Marvel prepared to introduce Aaron Taylor-Johnson as the MCU's Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Fox exercised its right to use the character by casting Evan Peters as the lightning-fast mutant for the X-Men prequel/sequel combo. The film earned rave reviews, and Peters' Quicksilver was one of its best parts, with one scene in particular making the headlines.

Days of Future Past's now-iconic super slow-mo kitchen scene may have looked amazing on film, but it wasn't at all easy to achieve. The sequence had to be shot at a mind-blowing 3,600 frames per second — compare that to the standard 24 for most films. A frame rate that high requires huge amounts of light to work. In an interview with io9, Peter said:

"It was incredibly bright. A lot of the crew and Bryan [Singer] got to wear sunglasses. And the actors had to keep their eyes open for a long, long time, with that bright light just blaring at you. It's like the sun. It's brighter than the sun. It's right there in your eyes. But the end result is so worth it. You just power through it."

Unlike its predecessor, 2016's X-Men Apocalypse didn't go down too well with the critics. Still, it had a few redeeming features, chief among which was — yeah, you guessed it — Quicksilver's moment in the spotlight. Why mess with perfection, right? Although technological advances made between Days of Future Past and Apocalypse made things easier for the effects team, director Bryan Singer still chose to approach Quicksilver's second major set piece as practically as possible. Keep watching the video to see more Marvel movies before you add the special effects.
