Marvel films are known for doing an excellent business and therefore, they take extreme care while creating a film. Infinity War gave its directors one of the greatest Marvel movies ever.
Both the directors and writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely had to tackle the biggest cast of superheroes. Obviously, such a big production did not happen overnight: in the directors’ commentary of the home release of the film, the writers, and the Russos divulged 12 important revelations from the making of the film.
A FAMILIAR DISTRESS SIGNAL
This appears as a consequence of Thanos’ attack on the ship flooded with Asgardian survivors.
In the directors’ commentary of the film, it was revealed that it was the director of the first Thor film, who kindly accepted the Russo brothers’ request to have him record the voice of the Asgardian distress signal.
HEIMDALL’S SECRET POWER
The writers of the film believe that Heimdall’s magic is a call back to the first Avengers film. When Thor discovers himself on Earth again even though the Bifrost was destroyed, Loki asks the God of Thunder how much dark magic required him to make the trip.
While many people began to wonder about the characters, the directors’ commentary proved that Valkyrie is indeed alive, and even though we didn’t see her in Infinity War, she managed to escape with a few other Asgardians.
THE DESTRUCTION OF XANDAR
According to the writers and directors of the film, a part of the script did open with the destruction of Xandar. However, the scene was dropped down when its futility was realized. It was decided that, since we would already see Thanos cause much destruction, the scene would have only felt repetitive in such a destructive movie.
THE FALL OUT FROM CIVIL WAR
The directors’ commentary revealed that Tony is aware that the reason why Vision has turned off his transponder is that he is spending time with Wanda Maximoff. As an enforcer of the Sokovia Accords, Tony could easily go after Cap and his team, but he does not do so.
WHY HULK WILL NOT TRANSFORM
In reality, The Hulk went through some character development in Thor: Ragnarok and, after being regarded as a champion on Sakaar, he doesn’t want to simply help Banner anymore whenever he wants to change.
THE BLACK ORDER’S POWER LEVELS
According to the writers and directors of the film, the power levels of Ebony Maw, Cull Obsidian, Proxima Midnight and Corvus Glaive were reduced so as to outshine the main villain of the film. Moreover, their skills were revised to bring them on equal grounds with the Avengers.
A NOD TO THE INFINITY GAUNTLET COMIC
The directors of the film revealed that this special use of the Reality Stone was only made to be a homage to The Infinity Gauntlet.
The comic book was a wonderful influence for the direction of the third Avengers film, and it featured some amazing uses of the Infinity Gems similar to this.
THE SMARTEST PERSON IN THE MARVEL UNIVERSE
No actor from the Marvel movie can come close to the Black Panther’s sister, the Princess of Wakanda, Shuri.
The directors’ commentary of Avengers: Infinity War confirms that Shuri is the smartest person in the Marvel Universe. She is the only one who could even come close to removing the Mind Stone from Vision, and why she was so important during the battle of Wakanda.
DON’T LET THANOS CLOSE HIS FIST
The idea of having Thanos close his fist to make use of the Infinity Gauntlet was a rule picked up by the makers of the film so as to build the Avengers to fight Thanos.
CONFIRMED: SOUL WORLD
Near the end of Avengers: Infinity War, when Thanos finally assembles all of the Infinity Stones, the character is transported and communes Gamora as a child. Most fans began to theorize that this was a glimpse at Soul World while the reality was hidden inside the Soul Stone.
The directors’ commentary of the film declares it official that Thanos is indeed in Soul World.
THANOS IS PERMANENTLY DAMAGED FROM THE GAUNTLET
In the movie, we soon see that the Infinity Gauntlet is severely damaged. More so, it looks like the power of the snap even managed to wound Thanos. When we see him on his porch at the end of the film, the scars are still present on his arm and neck.
However, according to the directors’ commentary, making use of the Gauntlet for such a purpose took its toll on Thanos, and the Mad Titan will remain permanently damaged because of it. All this sounds sensible when connected with the huge levels of courage that the villain is wielding. Furthermore, with Gauntlet destroyed, there may be no easy way to fix the snap.
