After almost 10 years and 22 films in the MCU, The Avengers suffered their first major loss when Thanos decimated half of all life in Infinity War. However, the heroes are expected to strike back when Endgame premieres in theaters in April.
But after Thanos dusted away the heroes, the next will see the remaining Avengers teaming up to reverse the damage caused by the Mad Titan. Perhaps, fans may expect a change in tone, if we go by Endgame director Joe Russo.
Director Joe Russo on Avengers: Endgame
As revealed by Russo to Box Office Pro, “I will say that the movie is definitely unique in tone. It has its own spirit that’s different than Infinity War, which is why I was keen for us to separate the movies. Of course, we’re handing off narratives and it’s been serialized over 22 movies. But, it’s different tonally than Infinity War and it is told from a different point of view. It was important for us in our minds as film directors to separate those two because we do not want to make the same movie twice, and ways that you can differentiate films are through tone and point of view.”
Endgame will be a major change post-Infinity War
Russo previously had a conversation with Empire Magazine alongside screenwriter Stephen McFeely who addressed how the film would come as a major change after the events of Infinity War.
“Alright, we have no idea how the story can move forward from here. We’ve just killed half the characters,” Russo said.
Added McFeely, “Infinity War had 23 people on the poster. That dictated a certain type of pace and a certain type of movie. There’s only, what, nine people on the poster for Endgame? So maybe you can do a different type of storytelling.”
The Avengers have been dealing with a massive blow since Thanos snapped but with the original six Avengers alive, they will likely live up to the fan expectations and take it against Mad Titan.
