Joe Russo: ‘Avengers: In­fin­ity War’ plot got com­pli­cated

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Joe Russo says the "hard­est part of the job" of mak­ing 'Avengers: In­fin­ity War' was com­bin­ing all the dif­fer­ent Mar­vel Cin­e­matic Uni­verse nar­ra­tives. The next two Avengers movies have been an­nounced as the end of Phase 4 in the MCU and the film­maker - who is helm­ing the two films with his brother An­thony Russo - said ev­ery­thing has been lead­ing up to 'In­fin­ity War', but it's a com­pli­cated jour­ney. Speak­ing to Comic­book.com, Joe said: "Ev­ery­thing is set­ting up 'In­fin­ity War'. Ev­ery nar­ra­tive that you have seen in any of the Mar­vel movies lead­ing up to this point comes to bear in some way be­cause all of the char­ac­ters and all of the fran­chises are com­ing to­gether, bring­ing their themes and their tone and the things that mo­ti­vate the char­ac­ters are driv­ing them through this story. It has been the hard­est part of the job for us, is meld­ing all of that to­gether. But thank­fully we got Christo­pher Markus and Stephen McFeely work­ing with us. "They are in­cred­i­ble col­lab­o­ra­tors. They wrote 'Cap­tain America: Win­ter Sol­dier' for us and 'Civil War'. Now they're writ­ing both 'Avengers' movies. I feel like we've got a great Vul­can mind meld be­tween the two of them, and me and my brother." 'Avengers: In­fin­ity War' will see the hero squad - Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Cap­tain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), The Hulk (Mark Ruf­falo), Scar­let Witch (El­iz­a­beth Olsen), Vi­sion (Paul Bet­tany), Black Widow (Scar­lett Jo­hans­son) and Hawk­eye (Jeremy Ren­ner) - join forces with the Guardians of the Galaxy. The two teams will have to work to­gether to fight Thanos, with some help from new­com­ers Spi­der-Man (Tom Hol­land), Black Pan­ther (Chad­wick Bose­man) and the screen de­but of Cap­tain Mar­vel (Brie Lar­son). Russo also re­vealed at San Diego Comic-Con that 'In­fin­ity War' is cur­rently the long­est 'Avengers' movie so far.
