It all started when Marvel Studios decided to work on its streaming series. With the release of Avengers: Endgame, Marvel Studios was all geared up for its next phase. As per the book, VFX companies would bid to work with Marvel and the company would pick the one with the lowest pricing. An excerpt from the book stated how Marvel and the VFX companies would form a deal.

“Companies bidding on the workaday jobs had to estimate how much time and labor would be required to create a shot of two heroes fighting a robot with tentacles. Marvel would probably would take the lowest bid, so houses that wanted to stay busy had to determine just how small they could afford to make their margins”

With additional series and movies in the works, this led to the animators working overtime and often being underpaid for their work. In the book, three movies were named which were allegedly affected by this VFX fiasco. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, and, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
