Joe Russo on the Hardships of Infinity War

Ever since May 2nd, 2008 the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been on a tear through Hollywood. They’ve released 16 (going to be 17 in November) movies up until this point. The way the movies are formatted, they’ve continued an amazing story. Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios has been the guy behind the scenes; he’s made these films flow perfectly. The director(s)/writer(s) teams that marvel has used have been amazing. One specific team consist of directors Anthony and Joe Russo, and writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. The team has worked on Captain America: Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War. In a recent interview with comicbook.com, Joe Russo opened up about the hardest part of making Avengers: Infinity War. [Read more below!]

There has never been anything like this onscreen before. What Marvel is attempting to do is something that only few studios may ever attempt. Of course, there’s the DCEU, Toho, Transformers, and Universal Monsters movie universes among others. They all began off of a blueprint laid out by Marvel. The massive amount of characters that Marvel plans to put on the big screen has comic book movie fans going crazy. Yes, we have seen all of these characters onscreen several times, but how does Marvel fit them into one movie. Especially when we now have the great Thanos to deal with. How will Josh Brolin’s villain play out for Marvel? If anyone can make it play out beautifully, it’s the Russo Brothers.

In Joe Russo’s recent interview with comicbook.com, Russo explained the hardest part of creating Infinity War:

“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 Markus and McFeely working with us. They are incredible collaborators. They wrote 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

This film has been 9 years and 18 films (18 will be the number after Black Panther releases in February 2018) in the making. Marvel studios has put in the hours to make this film happen. Also, this film will be followed up by Avengers 4 in 2019. The 2 films are going to be a culmination of everything that has happened in the MCU so far.

The task is tall, but we are talking about the team that brought us the great Captain America: Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War. If anyone can pull off this amazing feat, it’s the Russo Bros. They’re taking the mantle that Joss Whedon held. The trailer that was released at D23 and Comic-Con has received great responses. I’m sure the film will be amazing as well. There’s one studio that we can trust with a film like this, it’s Marvel.

Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.”
