If you threw a dart at pretty much any day within the past week or so, each day would be indicated as the day in which something Avengers 4 related was supposed to drop. Every scooper and their mother has hinted at big things coming, and they are, if you count a new trailer for Captain Marvel coming tonight and, presumably, Avengers 4 later this week. Still, between Avengers 4 and Infinity War, there’s a huge deal of secrecy that Joe and Anthony Russo have to keep with what’s no doubt two of Marvel Studios’ biggest projects so far.
And the two indicated as much during their recent Q&A with Collider after an Avengers: Infinity War screening, where the directing duo explained that directing films takes up a huge part of your life, especially for a film as big as these two. As such, it can be difficult to not talk about these projects, so the two found an easy solution to alleviate others from the burden of secrets when it comes to Avengers 4. The answer? Simply tell them as little as possible:
“It is very difficult when your job is to sort of personalize these stories, personalize these characters, and sort of bring all your creative, collaborative energy to a process that lasts many, many months — sometimes more than a year — it’s a big part of your life.”
Indeed, when you put it that way, you can’t say that you have secrets to share if you don’t know what those secrets even are in the first place. And given how everyone is waiting to see what Marvel Studios has down the pipeline for Avengers 4, the Russo Brothers don’t want anything slipping, so they’ve made it better for others involved by revealing next to nothing. Not even on a need-to-know basis, in fact:
“So it’s very hard not to talk about this stuff, because you live with it for so long and you live with it so deeply. We have developed a process where you take pressure off of people by letting them know less. It’s less responsibility they have to edit themselves, so we’ve developed an elaborate process by which we try to only let people know what they absolutely need to know. And it makes a little bit easier for them to edit themselves.”
Still, though, what do you think about the level of secrecy surrounding both Infinity War and Avengers 4? Given that there was a trailer for Infinity War around this time last year, do you believe it’s time that something dropped in relation to Avengers 4? Let us know in the comments below.
Avengers: Infinity War is available now on Digital HD, 4K, Blu-Ray, and DVD. Avengers 4 will hit theaters on May 3, 2019.
