With large-scale productions such as Black adam, motion capture suits, green screen and CGI are expected parts of the process. Over the years, especially with comic book-based superhero movies, motion capture suits have appeared repeatedly to help bring the characters to life. Marvel has used them for years with great success.

Still, only the first images will reveal the intentions of the production. Audiences will be able to see Brosnan’s Doctor Fate in action in his fully rendered costume when Black adam hits theaters next year.
