THE AVENGERS: New Behind The Scenes Photos Reveal How Alexis Denisof Was Transformed Into "The Other"

While he was swiftly killed off in Guardians of the Galaxy, "The Other" made quite the impact in The Avengers as Thanos' right-hand man. Now, some new behind the scenes photos have been revealed...

In The Avengers, Loki reported to a mysterious alien bad guy who was later dubbed "The Other." While he often referred to his "Master," it wasn't until the movie's mid-credits scene that we learned he was working for Thanos. It was an epic reveal, but The Other's time in the MCU didn't last.

In Guardians of the Galaxy, he was killed by Ronin the Accuser and that was the end of that. 

We never learned more about the character or his importance to the Mad Titan. Was he also one of the Children of Thanos? We may get an answer somewhere down the line, but Ironhead Studios has today unveiled some amazing behind the scenes photos revealing how they transformed Angel actor Alexis Denisof into this impressive looking villain. 

These photos are amazing, and show just how much work went into creating the character without digitall effects. So, to check out this gallery in its entirety, simply hit the "View List" button below!

How Long Have Captain America And Iron Man Been Separated?

Fjvowynx o

Captain America and Iron Man finally reunite when Tony Stark is brought back to Earth, but it's not exactly a happy occasion after everything that happened in Captain America: Civil War. Surprisingly, the Russo Brothers aren't entirely sure how long it's been since they last crossed paths and Joe says "We'll let someone else figure that out" after throwing around numbers like six and eight...years!

Presumably, he's referring to how long it's been since they've teamed up. At any rate, the significance of the moment Tony finally gives Steve his shield back wasn't lost on the filmmakers. 

"That's the value I think in serialized storytelling and telling a mosaic like this, is that you...if you make choices that take years to resolve, the audience feels that," Joe continued. "Because they too have waited years for this to resolve. And it has been since 2016 since these characters have had a pleasant scene between each other."
 

Captain Marvel Vs. Thor - Who's Stronger?

One of Avengers: Endgame's most enjoyable moments comes when Captain Marvel squares up to Thor and the God of Thunder declares that he likes the powerful hero. During the Director's Commentary, Joe goes so far as to say that he believes Carol Danvers could actually put Thor in his place. 

"It's interesting seeing the Avengers with Captain Marvel," he muses. "I think that she dimensionalizes them in a really great way. Just from a pure power standpoint and what her abilities are. If you're talking about a collection of heroes, and you're gonna go face Thanos who we believe still has the gauntlet."
 
"She is as powerful, if not more powerful than Thor, and you suddenly have hope again," the director continues. "Because they all know what happened at the end of the last movie, [Thanos] walked through them like they were paper." 
 

Why Captain America Swears More

You may not have noticed this, but Captain America swears quite a bit more in Avengers: Endgame than he did in previous MCU releases (how times have changed since that "Language" moment, eh?). 

That's something Joe pointed out when he noted, "You notice, this 2023 Cap swears a lot more than the old Cap." McFeely adds: "Yeah, I noticed this. I didn't remember it on set." Joe, however, has an explanation, as he points out that, "I mean, this guy's been through a lot..."

So, intentional or not, there's a good reason for all that extra swearing!
 

Smart Hulk Wasn't Finished Until The Last Minute

"Smart Hulk is one of those characters that we really didn't see in full, until, like, the last week before we delivered the movie because the VFX take so long on a character like that," Joe reveals, making it clear just how difficult it was to pull of the character's new look in Avengers: Endgame
 
"We should give credit to Mark Ruffalo, who is an amazing actor," Anthony added. "He worked so hard figuring this character out, because, you know he's been playing these two versions. He's been playing Banner. He's been playing Hulk. But figuring out who the combination of them is, was a real journey for him. We did a lot of experimentation. Spent a lot of time on a motion capture stage, playing with different ideas with Mark. He worked really hard to find this character."
 

Black Widow's Mission In Tokyo

Avengers: Endgame is a very long, very busy movie, so why take the time to have Black Widow track Hawkeye down in Tokyo? "There's no one who could have pulled him out of this other than her," says Joe. "No one else shows up and gets him to come home. " 
 
"Well it's also implied that this is essentially what he did for her when he pulled her out of being a Russian Agent," Markus adds before Joe concludes: "That's right it comes full circle, their relationship. Right? He had an opportunity to kill her and he changed her life, and now here she is changing his." Whether we'll see their first meeting in Black Widow obviously remains to be seen.
 

Wait, People Laughed At Thanos' Decapitation?

Apparently, both the movie's writers and directors have been present at screenings where people break into laughter after Thanos' decapitation. Needless to say, that's left them baffled. 

"It gets a laugh every time I'm in the theater," McFeely says. "Or like a nervous shock, right?" Anthony points out that he's noticed the same thing, and also puts it down to what a jaw-dropping moments it is. "People laugh at that and I was always shocked by that." 

However, McFeely was quick to point out that Alan Silvestri's score helps take away some of that levity. "I think the Silvestri score and the long slow walk here make you go, "Oh, crap. We've got nothing now," he explains, referring to the hopelessness of their situation.
 

The Insane Number Of VFX Shots

You don't need us to tell you about the huge amount of CGI that's utilized in Avengers: Endgame, as almost every scene is enhanced with visual effects. However, between this movie and Avengers: Infinity War, it's said that there were 6000 shots with visual effects.

That might be a new record for a two films shot back to back, and shows just how much work went into them.
 

The Ramifications Of The Five-Year Time-Jump

Avengers: Endgame's jump five years into the future has led to a lot of discussion, and during this Director's Commentary, the filmmakers talked more about what happened to those who were in planes or boats at sea. "[It's a] very complicated premise, right?" Anthony asks.

"You know, bringing people back from five years ago is a messy proposition any way you look at it, not even talking about the time travel complexities of it. You know, that's something I know some people like to think about, after watching the movie." McFeely is unsure about what happened to those who were on a plane, while Anthony questions people's marital decisions.
 
Joe, however, points out that "one of the most compelling things about the movie, is doubling down at the end and not reversing it." As McFeely says, they have to "own" that decision. 
 

Brie Larson Played Captain Marvel In Endgame Before Her Solo Movie

Before Brie Larson started working on Captain Marvel, she was already playing Carol Danvers in Avengers: Endgame.

 "It should be noted, people might know this already, that's basically Brie Larson's first or second day," McFeely said, before Joe then confirmed that her conversation with Thor in The Avengers Compound was actually the Oscar-winning star's first day on the movie's set. 
 

How The Idea Of Time-Travel Came Up

After finishing Avengers: Infinity War's screenplay, McFeely and Markus admit that they found themselves in a tough spot as they needed to find a way to undo everything Thanos did in that film.

Well, the scene between Steve Rogers and Scott Long where they discuss time-travel reportedly mirrored their own conversations early on when they were talking about how to write the screenplay.
