More than sixty characters are coming together for the biggest superhero smackdown in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Avengers: Infinity War and everyone's excited to see the heroes banter together as they team up with different Marvel characters in the film.
Speaking in an interview with Coming Soon, Infinity War screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely talk about the process of deciding which superhero gets to team up with which. According to the writers, they wanted to make sure that each character combo had a funny element to them, so they did their best to bring characters together organically.
"We had a wall of characters and at a certain point you just go… 'That's funny and that's funny. What's a story that could get those two (characters) together?'"
Markus also opened up about the shifting tones between the character combinations, talking about the different kinds of interactions in the film.
"You cut to the Guardians and it's a breather. If you're going from T'Challa and Captain America being very intense, you cut to Quill and Drax and it's like, sighs. It doesn't mean they're not carrying as much plot, it just means the tone is different. But it's also fun to drag people into each other's tones. Pull someone into the Guardians and have them go, ‘What the f*ck is with you guys?'"
Different doesn't really mean bad. It looks like Marvel fans are going to have a roller coaster ride watching different teams working together in Infinity War.
Avengers: Infinity War premieres April 27.
