Filmmaking is a humungous undertaking and working on a comic book film for a franchise as popular and as successful as the Marvel Cinematic Universe certainly does have its own set of added pressures.
But while Joe and Anthony Russo have already acquired experience directing comic book movies for Marvel (Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War ), the directors tell fans at a recent Q and A session (via Game Spot) that Avengers: Infinity War is without question "one of the most complicated movies ever made in many ways."
"I think all of us appreciate what a special and unique opportunity this was. No one has ever seen a film like this. No one has ever seen this number of loved characters in a single film with this caliber of cast. And that's really what drove all of us," Anthony explained at the fan event. "I think everybody brought their best collaborative energy to the project. Everybody sacrificed hard for the project. It's not only important to us, but it's important to the audiences and everybody rose to the cause."
Bringing together more than sixty Marvel characters certainly poses as a challenge for the Russos. Balancing screen time for a massive cast can be daunting task, not only in terms of production but in terms of storytelling as well. We certainly hope that the Russos manage to bring us another emotionally compelling set of films.
Avengers: Infinity War makes its way to the big screen on April 27.
