Coming back as MODOK was a joy for Corey Stoll
Corey Stoll said the process of filming as MODOK was fun. For Stoll, it was a pleasure to return to the MCU as MODOK. He said, “It was a really fun process.

They put dots on my face and a performance capture camera, and we just sat around the tables going through every scene.”
He continued, “I was there with all the other actors, and we were going through it [a few] times and everything was being captured all the time. And then we get to our feet, and we kind of — I obviously can’t move like MODOK can move. I actually wore a neck brace for a while only to get this feeling of not having a neck and having to move my entire body to look at different things. We just experimented and played for two days, and it was really fun.”
