Not that is pretty amazing. If only they could
accept that Spider-Man should never have been an
Avenger...

Cool!!

Should it be "stuntronic" tho?
May this be a first step back into more practical effects? Anything to scale back the CGI some is good thing, in my humble opinion.

After watching the IMAGINEERING doc on Disney+ and seeing some early tests of this in the final episode (this was weeks before this announcement), our own Doug Jones mentioned to me during a get together last week that he thought this might be the end result.  Jones will now and forever be known as Carnac the Magnificent!

Disney unfortunately has a record of using this type of atmosphere enhancing feature only once, usually during the opening of a new land or attraction.  Star Wars land had drones dressed as XWings.  New Fantasyland had a dragon flying around breathing fire.  Neither has been seen since.  Great for press.  Not so great for the bottom line, which Disney is paying more attention to these days.
