It is not shocking to see studios reviving actors with computer-generated imagery, but the popular MCU is not keen on doing so. With dominating the box office for over a decade, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has no plans of reviving some of their dead characters like Ironman and Black Widow.

It didn’t seem feasible for the makers to get back Cushing because he had been dead for over 22 years when Rogue One was released. The film was not even in production when Cushing crossed his 20th death anniversary but still, he was introduced in Rogue One. Carrie Fisher was playing a prominent role in the Star Wars franchise but her tragic death made her drop out of the cast. Her character, Leia in the Star Wars films was recreated, not fully exactly like Cushing, but a number of digital effects played a major role in her posthumous appearance in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Marvel Studios, Executive Vice President of Production, Victoria Alonso confirmed the studio's stance of staying away from reviving dead actors with CGI, saying they haven't considered that.
