Given that Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, not to mention a sequel of sorts and continuation of the various story threads in Captain America: Civil War, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Thor: Ragnarok, this was no doubt a huge task for the Russo Brothers when it came to directing Infinity War.
And seeing how the still-untitled Avengers 4 will be a continuation of both Infinity War and the previously mentioned films, not to mention following up on where things are left off in Ant-Man and the Wasp and the upcoming Captain Marvel film, there’s plenty of work to be done for the Russo.
But they’re ready for it, helped no doubt by the large gap in time between the release of Infinity War and Avengers 4 next year. Not only is the directing duo ready for it, but they’ve been working on it since the release of Infinity War earlier this year, as Joe Russo revealed in a recent interview when he gave a status update on the next Avengers film:
“We’ve been in post-production on it since the release of Infinity War and we’ve got some additional photography that we’re doing in a month or so.”
And since Avengers 4 won’t hit theaters until next May, that would give the Russos enough time to dot every i and cross every t while checking their list twice once the additional photography begins, as Joe Russo states, in a month or so.
With so much time not just between Infinity War and Avengers 4, but gap between Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel next year, what do you hope is done to make Avengers 4 as polished as possible? Let us know in the comments below.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War will be released on Digital HD on July 31 and Blu-Ray on August 14th. The still untitled Avengers 4 will hit theaters on May 3, 2019.
