CGI superheroes are more common than you think.
On June 9, 1995, Batman forever introducing the public to what was probably the first CGI stunt double.
In a few short shots, a digital doppelganger jumped from tall buildings and swung a grappling hook, used to convince viewers that Bruce Wayne was more “super” than the average guy. Since then, superheroes and digidoubles have gone hand in hand. Main characters in superhero movies often wear masks or form-fitting bodysuits, making them perfect candidates for digital replacement; fabric is much easier to replicate digitally than skin†
The technology has only improved over the years, meaning digidoubles are used for so much more than just “super” sequences. Today, digidoubles are used to give filmmakers and artists flexibility. Rather than being stuck with what they can shoot during the main shoot, they can add and remove photos, completely change characters’ costumes, and rewrite the script as needed — long after filming is over.
