Walton Goggins Supports MCU’s Green Screen Use After ‘Soul-Crushing’ Set Experiences

He says green screens make acting easier compared to independent movies.

Actor Walton Goggins says working with green screens in superhero movies was way too much easier compared to shooting independent films.

Goggins recently spoke to the Independent about the benefits of using green screens. He claimed this method is less physically demanding than shooting in real, often harsh, environments:

“I mean, can you b*tch and complain about looking at a f*cking green screen? Of course, you can… But you also can b*tch and complain about being in minus-30-degree weather doing a movie that takes place in the snow, you know?”

Goggins even said if he had to choose after working hard on eight independent films, he would rather act in front of a green screen:

“I can tell you right now – if I did eight movies in a row where I’m f*cking killing myself for an independent movie, that is soul-crushing. I would look at my friends and say, ‘I just want to go look at a green screen for a while.'”

Opinions On Green Screens Vary

Superhero movies often rely heavily on CGI and green screens. Some don’t believe they count as real cinema, like Martin Scorsese and Anthony Hopkins. Scorsese even went on to compare Marvel movies with theme parks:

“I don’t see them. I tried, you know? But that’s not cinema. Honestly, the closest I can think of them, as well-made as they are, with actors doing the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks. It isn’t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.”

Bale Finds Them Monotonous

Some actors find working with green screens less authentic. Christian Bale spoke about how all the ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ sets felt the same because of them:

“That’s the first time I’ve done that. I mean, the definition of it is monotony. You’ve got good people. You’ve got other actors who are far more experienced at it than me. Can you differentiate one day from the next? No. Absolutely not. You have no idea what to do.

I couldn’t even differentiate one stage from the next. They kept saying, ‘You’re on Stage Three.’ Well, it’s like, ‘Which one is that?’ ‘The blue one.’ They’re like, ‘Yeah. But you’re on Stage Seven.’ ‘Which one is that?’ ‘The blue one.’ I was like, ‘Uh, where?'”

Goggins is not alone in his view, though. Steven Spielberg believes superhero movies are Oscar-worthy.
