We can’t deny that movie fans love a good hero. But deep down inside, we also know that many movie villains are much cooler than the heroes. They get the best costumes and the best lines but something bad happens to them in the end. Some of these villains become iconic like Darth Vader and the Joker. However, you may wonder what the actors who play them actually look like in real life.
We’ve got you covered if you do. Today we’ll look at the people behind the masks and under the costumes. Wardrobe, makeup, and VFX departments deserve immense credit for the work they do in bringing these characters to life. It’s amazing to imagine that some of these beautiful people play such evil beings on-screen, so let’s get started.
Thanos was the big bad of the Avengers movie series and one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel universe. It’s easy to recognize him as the gigantic purple humanoid with a penchant for finding the Infinity Stones. But this supervillain looks very different in real life as we can see below.
Josh Brolin starred as the evil villain in the Marvel films that broke box office records. It’s safe to say that Brolin is more handsome than his character. Brolin wore facial and body capture systems in his performance. Then VFX artists used CGI to create this massive monster (via The Hollywood Reporter).
