Blackmeal’s Marvel animation will make you hungry for more


Animation and visual effects production company Blackmeal has created a 40-second video it calls “an homage to Marvel, which created most of the superheroes who entertained generations of children and adults for more than 80 years.” Using Captain America’s shield as a starting point, the cartoon sticks with the round shape and transforms it into iconography from various Marvel heroes, like Spider-Man, Wolverine, Cyclops and the Hulk. It’s an amazing, joyful piece of work that I’d love to see in front of every animated Marvel project from now until the end of time.



That is cool. Animating explosions and other visual effects is not an easy skill to master, but I love the bounciness they have in this video. Reminds me of Michel Gagne’s work to a small degree. Beautiful stuff.

Actually, those characters were created by Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, Don Heck, Stan Lee, and Joe Simon (and, I guess, the slashing claws by Herb Trimpe and Len Wein, with a heavy assist from Chris Claremont, Dave Cockrum and John Byrne).
