Russo Brothers Talk About ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Themes!
Avengers: Infinity War hype is all over right now. With San Diego Comic Con on the horizon, Directors Anthony and Joe Russo took some time to talk about the themes of their upcoming film!
Anthony Russo compared the themes of Infinity War to those found in Winter Soldier.
In ‘Winter Soldier‘ we were thinking about the surveillance state. In ‘Civil War‘ our heroes had to decide, is it better to allow themselves to be monitored and controlled by the government or to disband and not let that happen? It’s a theme that just keeps expanding. You’ll find that ‘Infinity War‘ and the still untitled Avengers movie deal with much larger issues. They move beyond the politics. Those stories were specifically about Captain America, and he’s a guy that wears a flag on his shield. We can’t help but address current American issues with him. ‘Infinity War‘ deals with much deeper, more universal and more profound themes of fate and destiny and the essence of what it means to be a hero.
Joe touched on how they were dealing with the sheer amount of characters.
We’ve always been really drawn to the idea of ensemble storytelling. These movies just bring that to the nth degree. It’s sort of “How do you hold a stable narrative together when you have all these points of view?
Anthony Russo explained how Infinity War serves as the culmination of the MCU to this point.
If the first ‘Iron Man‘ movie were the first chapter of a book that would be written over 10 years and 22 films, these two movies are the final chapters of that book. Of course, there will be other books written.
Joe added on to this statement.
The [Marvel Cinematic Universe] will go on after these films, but there are many ways in which these films are a culmination and completion of one road.
