    Marvel Recreation Universe: Behind the Scenes.

    We are very happy to announce that the Behind the Scenes Phase of Mru has begun!

    For those who don’t know: Marvel Recreation Universe is a Fan Series that Recreated 1 scene from every single Marvel Movie in chronological order using VFX, and Costumes.

    It started out as friends filming Recreations in a studio and ended up starring Professional Cosplayers and Actors from all over the world by the end of the Season.

    We have decided the Main Story of the Making of Mru will be told through the Power of a Short Film and the Behind the Scenes interviews initially recorded for our documentary will be redesigned as short Behind the Scenes featurettes for each episode.

    Me and my team are happy to present our very first Behind the Scenes Featurette:

    Marvel Recreation Universe BTS Episode 1: The Winter Soldier.

    The WS SR provided many creative challenges and questions including: Do we film on a Blue Screen? How to record a fight sequence on a highway? and much more. in this video, we break it down:

        Thank you, Istvan! Appreciate the kind and thoughtful reply.

        I, myself truly am astounded at how many people the Marvel Movies have impacted and how much the cinematic landscape of filmmaking has changed forever due to these films.

        Wait till you see our next production:)

        Our final video for the year is our biggest production yet.

        All our Recreations have been leading up to one massive video, releasing later this December. represents everything we have been building and I think everyone will see the Mru from a new perspective after it premiers.

        Can’t wait for you to see it!!

        Thank you, Maura! Great question. 😀 We are currently planning for a December 27th release date.

        However, we are giving ourselves some leeway, should we run into any unforeseen issues so December 28th, or 29th at the latest.

        The finishing touches are being placed on our production now and then it will release!

    Marvel Recreation Universe had one of the most unique sets in video producing.
    Unlike many productions, we were not inventing something new, but instead reenacting something we have high respect for with a cast and crew brought together by the impact of the Marvel Movies.

    Multiples of people coming together to recreate scenes that we look up to from movies that we love.

    Every cast/crewmember knew what we were creating, and everyone was pushing hard to do these iconic moments and characters justice.

    Here is a highlight reel of what the experience was like on Mru’s Sets.

    The Thor The Dark World Scene Recreation required us to find a new Thor actor, color grade a costume using Visual Effects technology, and more.

    In this episode we break down everything it took to bring our Thor: The Dark World SR to life:

      Our final video for the year is a special one.

      From the very beginning, we planned out Mru as one movie, telling a singular and powerful story across one Scene Recreation from every single Marvel Movie, (Avengers (2012) – Spider-Man Far from Home (2019.)

      Which we split into parts for a broader reach across YouTube.

      Now that dream has become a reality.

      All our Scene Recreations can now be experienced as one gigantic movie and massive video.

      This includes: Extended Scene Recreations, Scene Recreations never before seen on these forums, Full-Screen versions of Scene Recreations previously only available in Side by Side Comparisons, Endgame Style like- Credits featuring everyone who ever worked on Mru, and more.

      Features:

      – Avengers (2012) Battle for New York Scene Recreation

      – Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 1 VFX Test Scene Recreation,

      – Extended Director’s Cut Avengers Endgame Cosplayer Portals Recreation: 20 seconds of additional footage, improved color grading/lighting Audio fixed for a smoother and pleasing experience to the ears, All shots in Full-Screen High Definition, and more.

      – All Scene Recreations no Intermissions,

      – Restored Deleted Scene Infinity War SR,

      – Endgame like- Stylized Credits featuring everyone who ever worked on Mru, and the country they are from.

      – Captain Marvel Scene Recreation One Screen Version,

      – Far From Home Scene Recreation with Original Film Audio and fixed White Balance issues,

      -Extended Winter Soldier High Way Fight Scene Recreation,

      -and more.

      This film took me and my team six years to complete. (First day of Prep/ planning December 2015 – Final day of Compositing December 2021.)

      This is the way Marvel Recreation Universe is meant to be experienced.

      This is The Marvel Recreation Universe Movie.

    You all used green screen to great extent come together. Your work proves that there is talent even though we might not even know it. I looked over and over again at the costumes for example.

      Thank you, Istvan!

      I am a huge believer in starting no matter what the Budget. We began with Cardboard helmets for our first VFX Test Recreation and then moved to actually officially licensed costumes after that, our costumes kept improving slowly with every SR.

      One of the reasons I believe, we were able to get professional Cosplayers on board with the project is because they saw how hard we were pushing and trying to make our Costumes work with a high-level amount of Green Screen.

      It all goes back to our final scene of the Film. It represents one of the main reasons we made Mru.

      Peter asks Mysterio how could he do all of this? and Mysterio replies: Because people didn’t believe, and now they will believe anything. That is the story of our Film. We wanted to show Filmmakers what truly is possible.

        I have a feeling that you are just starting to show filmmakers what truly is possible! Your words and Mysterio said it best! At first people only mock you but as time goes by and you start developing your project, they start believing in it!

        Marvel Recreation Universe BTS Episode 4: Deleted Scene: Infinity War: Thor arrives in Wakanda Scene Recreation.

        A deleted scene from our Recreation Movie. This scene was cut because it proved too be similar to our Thor Ragnarok Thor vs Hulk Scene Recreation and slowed down the pacing/flow of our film.

        Each of the five main characters of our film, Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, Thor, and Star-Lord have individual character arcs and their journeys within our film.

        This was meant to be Thor Actor Jake Kaufman’s big character moment.

        This scene also features Jake Kaufman’s best performance as Thor.

        Great question. I have. We have a Vfx Series for our YouTube audience that recreates scenes from new Marvel Movies and Disney+ Shows. The Recreations come out 1-2 times a week and that is where all of our SR’s from the latest Marvel productions are created.
        It helps our channel build up an audience while I put most of our focus on finishing the BTS story of our film.
        We recreated 5 scenes from the new Spider-Man film. (3 released, 2 filmed and are moving to the Post-Production phase.)
