One of the most popular studios in Hollywood, Marvel Studio is the creator of some fantastic superheroes like Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor. It is one of the most profitable movie franchises ever, with over $28 billion in revenue at the box office. The MCU is more than only a collection of superhero movies. Each movie’s characters and plot points are connected in a shared universe. But right now, all the studios are struggling as a result of the writers’ and actors’ strikes.

In the midst of the continuing strike, the VFX artists at Marvel Studios have taken an important step forward.

The visual effects artists are coming together for the first time to express their concerns. Only the VFX artists have never had their own union, although other behind-the-scenes workers do. A historic first for the industry has been made with the unionization vote of VFX artists at Marvel Studios. The action, which coincides with an increase in union activity in the entertainment industry, shows the growing influence of unions.

Visual effects artists are making history

By speaking out for justice, these VFX artists are changing the course of history. It was well stated by Mark Patch, the IATSE’s VFX organizer, who said, “This is a historic first step for VFX workers coming together with a collective voice demanding respect for the work we do.” Bella Huffman, a VFX coordinator, also made several crucial points, such as the need for fair hours, adequate salary, and a pleasant place to work. They want their department to be a place where no one feels exploited and where everyone can thrive.

This union action comes at a time when many other people in the entertainment industry are also defending their rights. Actors and writers have taken to the streets to ensure that their opinions are heard as well. The head of the IATSE, Matthew D. Loeb, said that

Entertainment workers everywhere are sticking up for each other’s rights, that’s what our movement is all about.”

Marvel’s visual effects team has been in the news for quite some time now due to criticisms about the current film and television projects’ VFX. They are once more in the spotlight as they attempt to create history through their decision to form a union.
