Stunning Proof That The Helicarriers In Captain America 2 Weren't Real

I don't want to blow your mind, but did you know that giant, flying SHIELD helicarriers in the popular Marvel movie weren't actually built, launched into the air, destroyed, and then crashed into Washington DC? It's true! As it turns out, these massive airships were in fact made by something call com-pyoo-turs!

I kid, of course; it's in fact another VFX reel, this time of ILM's work on Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Highlights include Jenny Agutter ripping her face off to reveal Scarlett Johansson and Anthony Mackie's Falcon sliding away from no danger whatsoever. Fun stuff!

Thats what I hate. Lack of realism! I can't suspend disbelief unless they actually build giant helicarriers and then blow them up over Washington! Practical effects Hollywood, none of this CG crap!
