We all know by now that Marvel’s Infinity War is going to feature probably more characters than we’ve ever seen in any MCU film up to this point. There’s definitely plenty of characters that we’ve yet to see in any films, and with the third Avengers film being as massive as it’s going to be, how do directors Joe and Anthony Russo plan to give everyone screen time?
While speaking to comicbook.com over the weekend, co-director Anthony Russo went on to explain their plan for making sure each character got the appropriate amount of screen time:
“We’re going to be dealing with some of the characters from those movies who are going to be in Infinity War. They’re massive in scope and scale but that’s the point. The point is for them to be as ambitious as they possibly can be. They’re going to be multi-perspective films. They’re not called ‘Captain America: Infinity War,’ they’re called Infinity War. You’re going to be moving around through different perspectives of the characters. It’s like Nashville for super heroes. It’s storytelling that is vignetted storytelling. It’s to composite all of them under one story – everybody.”
So it looks as if we’re going to see how this story plays out from the eyes of each (or almost each) character. There’s still plenty of heroes that we haven’t been introduced to yet – like Captain Marvel and Doctor Strange- but the Russo Bros. have shown that they’re capable of balancing multiple characters in big blockbusters, so we’re not worried about them being able to handle this task.
Avengers: Infinity War is scheduled to release on May 4th, 2018.
