As we've recently discovered, a lot of the things that normally would be CG'd in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy was done with actual makeup and prosthetics. As Comicbook.com wrote today, "In a broadcast by Adam Kruger of Anchor.fm, we learned that Young Ego was created by 90% makeup work, and only 10% CGI work. That's a far cry from other flashback moments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (see: Michael Douglas in Ant-Man; Young Tony Stark in Captain: Civil War) which have clearly used extensive CGI work to achieve their de-aged effect."
While Kurt Russell's Ego might have been easy to work with - actor Chris Sullivan's Taserface clearly was not. The (to put it nicely) hard to look at Taserface was the work of a team of make up artists over a period of hours. You can watch the timelapse of the process on this RollingStone.com clip here.
Chris Sullivan's Taserface was the butt of some of the best jokes in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Not to get too spoilery but Rocket Racoon has a field day at not only his looks, but his supposedly threatening sounding name.
"I am so sorry. I just keep imagining you waking up in the morning, start looking in the mirror and all seriously say to yourself. You know what would be a really kick-ass name, Taserface!"
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is set to be one of the biggest blockbusters of the year opening with $425 million dollars world wide. It sits week one as number 6 on the 2017 top domestic grossing films and is looking at yet another number one weekend at the box office.
Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
