INTERVIEW: The Russos on Infinity War's Unique Challenges and Their Marvel Futures

Marvel Strike Force

Yes, "Iron Man" was the first movie in the MCU, but there's literally just days until Infinity War, so a little crunching is required.

With all that said, there is still plenty to enjoy about Avengers: Infinity War and fans who have stuck with the MCU for 10 years will find that it's another solid entry in the franchise. Personally, I think key twists and character deaths are spoilers.

Thor & Rocket, Doctor Strange & Tony Stark, Thanos & Gamora, Natasha, Wanda & Okoye, Stark & Spidey - every pair churn out epicness in between the handsome chaos that's occuring on screen. When a movie is not just a movie but an emotion, you can imagine what it can do to the box office.

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos.

The social media embargo for Avengers: Infinity War has been lifted, allowing those who have seen the film to reveal their thoughts and reactions. Feige is very clearly aware of these sudden speculations getting the best of us and is relishing the moment over how much we love an underappreciated (and underpowered) Avenger. It then cuts back to Rocket who says, "Personally, I could lose a lot".

Semi drivers stop man from jumping off MI overpass
After about 3 hours - they were able to get him down where he was taken to the hospital to get help. But also in that photo is a man struggling with the decision to take his own life.

It turns out you can trust your Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-man with saving your life, but that's where your dependence on Tom Holland ends. As far as supervillain plans go, Thanos' is pretty cut-and-dry - he simply wants to randomly eliminate half of the population of the universe in order to cut down the drain on resources and bring about "harmony". The makers have given him different shades which at times also make you empathetic for him.

While the film studio were not the first to create a shared movie universe, the idea that nearly all their output was essentially a warm up act for a grand finale was a ballsy move.

Avengers: Infinity War Movie releases on 27th April, 2018.

Without giving anything away, the ending could be polarizing, but it's built in part on the trust Marvel enjoys with its fan base, established through the long game the company plays with its interlocking series of movies. While attending the Avengers: Infinity War Hollywood premiere on Monday, Hemsworth spoke with Variety (via Digital Spy), and opened up about the reboot that aims to pick up where Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones left off.
