It's decided — Captain America: The Winter Soldier is this Spring's must-see movie. The sequel has already made $500 million and solidified Marvel as the biggest movie franchise of all time. Why is the Cap's new title film making such big waves? The movie's incredible visual effects may have something to do with that.

He also shared an interesting bit on the making of one of our all-time faves Armaggedon! Below, learn how the movie's explosive visual effects came alive and take a look at some behind-the-scenes shots from the set.
