Heist Movies Inspired Avengers Infinity War Directors

Published

on

Marvel has been building up to Avengers: Infinity War for years. Fans have been teased with small cameos from the universe’s greatest villain, Thanos in small cutaways and brief scenes. Now Infinity War will bring Thanos to center stage as he searches for the Infinity Stones. In an interview CNET  with Infinity War directors, Joe and Anthony Russo spoke bringing the Mad Titan to the big screen.

“With Infinity War, the biggest new element to the movie is Thanos and the fact that he’s entering the storytelling in a very bold, strong way, to the degree that he’s almost one of the leads,” Anthony Russo explained. “We’ve shaped an interesting narrative around him that in some ways leans heavily on a heist film in the fact that he’s going after the infinity stones in a much bolder, successful way than he has in the past.

“The entire movie has that energy of the bad guy being one step ahead of the heroes. We looked at a lot of movies that had that heist-style energy to them, [and] that brought some inspiration.”

Joe Russo also said fans can expect some new faces to join the fight in Avengers Infinity War.

“There’s going to be a lot of unexpected characters. There are more surprises packed into this film than any of the others. Part of that is character interactions, new interesting characters, characters that have made small appearances that are really getting fleshed out in this film. A lot of people enjoy the experience, so I don’t want to give anything away, but certainly you can expect lots of surprises.”

Avengers Infinity War will be in theaters April 25, 2018.
