Avengers Director Admits To Misdirecting Fans With Trailers

Published

on

Marvel Studios and the Russo brothers used a lot of tactics to stop spoilers of Avengers: Infinity War. From releasing the movie at the same time globally in most markets to misinformation in the trailers. According to Joe Russo, it was all to protect the story from a more sophisticated audience.

“We have seen so much content that every average moviegoer has a level of sophistication in their ability to predict what is going to happen in a movie, which is why Anthony and I spent a lot of time trying to hide the secrets of [‘Avengers: Infinity War’], misdirect the way the trailers were cut, misdirect with information. It’s too easy for them to intuit what is going to happen.”

He also discussed how he sees movies changing thanks to Netflix and Marvel.

“I think all of this — Netflix, Marvel, ‘Star Wars,’ this massive moment of disruption we’re in — is really a function of audiences craving new kinds of storytelling,” Russo says. “I think we had a really nice run for 100 years of two-hour, two-dimensional storytelling, but I think over the next decade, decade-and-a-half, you’re going to see a radical shift in how stories are told.”

According to a report by Metro, Coogler is already in the process of drafting script for the sequel.

“Ryan Coogler is currently mapping out Black Panther’s sequel and has written in a number of new characters that movie-goers will be introduced to when it premieres,” said the source, according to Metro. “One of those characters, if he gets his wish, will be played by Childish Gambino. Nothing is set in stone but ‘informal talks’ [are happening] between Ryan, Gambino and reps from Marvel and Disney to see if they can make it happen.”

He’s also reportedly in talks with his longtime collaborator, Michael B. Jordan, to return for the sequel as well.

“They’re still yet to decide if Michael B. Jordan will return in some capacity but if he doesn’t it’s likely Gambino may play some kind of villain,” said the source.

But it would be hard for Marvel to justify the return of Michael B. Jordan as Killmonger, after the events of part one.

It’s a much more a traditional action-adventure quest movie…Aquaman has been the joke of the comic book world, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought how cool that would be. Let’s take the character everybody makes fun of and do something really interesting with him.”
