Recently, directors Anthony and Joe Russo made their way to Beijing, China to launch a new film studio. While doing an interview across seas, the directing duo were of course asked about the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. Whi;e disucssing the upcoming Marvel Studios film, the pair were asked about the new incarnation of Spider-Man would be different than the ones we’ve seen on the big screen in the past. Co-director Anthony Russo had the following to say on the matter.
The Russo brothers were then asked about the stakes in the 2016 film as well as the two-part Avengers: Infinity War, to which Joe Russo added that “the stakes of both Civil War and the Avengers: Infinity War movies are gonna be very high, and there will be a price to pay [for?] a lot of characters. And that’s the whole point of cumulative storytelling. We’re going to go on emotional journeys with these characters. We’ve got a lot invested in the emotion. We have responsibilities to be mindful of how these people feel about the characters and, at the same time, we also have a responsibility to carry through on the storytelling. As filmmakers, we believe in stakes. You can’t have good storytelling without strong stakes. So, there will be a price to pay in Civil War.”
