Moviemaking Magic of Marvel Studios: Heroes & Villains
There is probably not a more popular series in the history of films than that of the Marvel Studios movies that include the Avengers and all their off-shoots. The heroes include Captain America, Ironman, Thor, Spiderman, and many more. Of course, heroes are nothing without some good villains to overcome. The villains include such nefarious beings as Whiplash, Loki, and the Red Skull, who spend their lives trying to make the heroes perfectly miserable. It is quite a job to bring these bigger-than-life characters pulled from comic books to the big screen. This marvelous book takes one behind the scenes to see how the characters were translated into the live-action heroes filmgoers have come to know. The book contains concept drawings and discusses costume building, make-up, sound effects, secondary characters, and important scenes. Bright graphics and fold-out series of pictures make the journey through this book exciting. The writing is lively, fun, and fact-filled without being overwhelming for the casual or youngish reader. The photographs from films and drawings are drop-dead gorgeous and a real treat for any fan of these films. A perfect gift for any fan of the Marvel films.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
