Avengers: Infinity War is the most ambitious project of Marvel studios till date as it took years in the making and assembled over 60 comic-book characters of relevance. Managing so many storylines and character arcs is cinematic genius and the credit goes to Russos, the writers and entire creative team for pulling it off.
The movie was the ultimate comic-book thriller which had us hooked onto the screen from beginning till the end. It had MCU’s greatest villain ‘Thanos’ who not just overpowered Avengers assemble but fulfilled his purpose i.e rebalancing the universe. It ended on a massive cliffhanger which will be resolved in Avengers 4, marking culmination of everything that has happened in the 22 MCU movies.
The Russo Brothers claim that there is additional, unseen footage of around 45 minutes in the DVD/Blu ray disc. Here’s what they said:
“We were very tight with the scripts on Winter Soldier and Civil War, so there weren’t a lot of extras. This is a very big movie with a lot of characters in it, and we played around with a lot of improvisation, because we had new chemistry that we were defining between characters. It was the first time ever that all these characters were on screen together, so we played around with quite a bit of footage, and I think there will be some good stuff for the DVD.”
Marvel has begun releasing video clips, deleted scenes, gag reels, fan favorite scenes etc. to build the excitement for the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War Blu ray disc and the greatest comic-book extravaganza ‘Avengers 4. The Russo brothers are at the helm of MCU Phase 3. Here’s what they said:
“I feel like with Avengers 4, because it was made before there was any response to Avengers 3, it’s really pure in that regard. The storytelling is very pure. It’s without any sort of external noise creeping in at,” Joe Russo told Deadline during SDCC 2018.
He added: “We’ve been in post-production on [Avengers 4] since the release of Infinity War and we’ve got some additional photography that we’re doing in a month or so.”
“You know, we’re very proud of it. I think ultimately Avengers 4 may be our best work for Marvel. I think we’ve grown with every movie that we’ve made there. We’ve grown with the characters. We’ve grown with the cast. As filmmakers we’re very happy and very excited with the movie.”
