Another day, another viral TikTok trend, amirite? One of the last majorly talked about trends was the sexy (and unfortunately turned sour) Silhouette Challenge, in which TikTokers danced seductively in blacked-out rooms with illuminated doorways to a mashup of Paul Anka’s “Put Your Head on my Shoulder” and Doja Cat’s “Streets.” Who knew a simple red filter would become the talk of the town?? Welp, now there’s another one dominating your FYP page—the Marvel look-alike filter.

If you suddenly have been seeing a bunch of your friends and faves morph into a super-buff, crime-fighting Marvel superhero who has somewhat of a resemblance to their looks, please allow me to explain: They’re using the tried-and-true Shapeshifter Effect…but it’s not new—it’s actually taken on a brand-new life!

So now that we’ve gotten to the bottom of this, you probs wanna figure out which Marvel character you look like, for which I cannot blame you. I mean, why wouldn’t you want a cool video like this on your feed?

So here’s how you do it:

Step 1

Open up the TikTok app for the millionth time today and smash that Discover tab in the navigation bar.

Step 2

You know that search button you love to abuse? Yep, head there and type in “shapeshifting.” At the top, you’ll see “effects,” and the filter you want—the Shapeshifting Filter—will be directly underneath.

Step 3

This part’s pretty self-explanatory—click on the filter and tap the pink button at the bottom of the screen to start recording your video. Don’t be afraid to get creative either!

Step 4

Here’s the crucial part—upload the photo with all the Marvel characters’ faces on it and the filter will reveal which one you look most like. And voilà—you’re done! Once your TikTok is out there in the universe, hop on Disney+ and rewatch as many of the movies in the Marvel franchise as you can in a 24-hour period. Lather, rinse, repeat.
