Some of the characters are filmed with live actors, some are animated in later and some are even a bit of both.

It's impressive to see that the filmmakers didn't simply copy and paste backgrounds in, but, as you can see in the video, added pieces in bit-by-bit. The video also saves the best for last, as the Infinity Gauntlet had to be made right down to the wires.
