‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Co-Director Teases ‘Very Funny’ Combination With Thor & Star-Lord

Avengers Thor Star-Lord
Avengers: Infinity War will feature the long-awaited meeting between Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and the Guardians of the Galaxy. In an interview with IGN at San Diego Comic-Con, co-director Joe Russo discussed how fans can expect a “funny” dynamic between Thor and Peter Quill/Star-Lord.

Russo explained how Thor: Ragnarok allowed the God of the Thunder and Star-Lord to become a comedic duo:

“You know what’s interesting is that because of the re-toning that Taika (Waititi) did with Thor 3 and the direction Thor is heading in as a character, he and Star-Lord were a very surprising combination and a very funny combination. So I’m excited for the audience to see the two of them together.”

Avengers Infinity War ThanosDisney broke the internet on Saturday when they showed the first footage from Avengers: Infinity War at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA. Lucky for all you guys, I was in the room and made a mental list of all the best moments from the teaser. While the movie only just reached the production half-way mark, the footage director Joe Russo showed to the audience still included some epic moments.

It wasn’t a trailer per se — more so just a compilation of random moments designed to excite the audience. Whatever you want to call it, it did a great job of expressing how emotionally charged this movie will be. Remember, this is the conclusion of nearly ten years worth of stories, so expect some big action and tear jerking moments as Marvel Studios starts to shift towards Phase 4 and a new game plan.

    Too much comedy is what has watered down the MCU, with Homecoming being the exception because that was kids being kids, so to speak- as opposed to snarky one liners. There’s a reason CA:WS was the best non-origin movie- it took itself seriously.
