‘Avengers Infinity War’ will ‘not disappoint’ on number of characters, GOTG discussed

Marvel cinematic universe will expand with this year’s Captain America: Civil War, arriving in a few months, but it will explode with Avengers: Infinity War hitting theaters in 2018.

Directors Anthony and Joe Russo promise that fans “will not be disappointed in the amount of characters in the movie” and Joe Russo chatted with ComicBook.com about the GOTG team joining the battle.

The concept of Infinity War is that the Marvel universe unites to battle the greatest threat to the world and universe that you’ve ever seen, and we’re going to honor that concept.”

While Russo couldn’t talk about the specific roster of Marvel characters coming to Infinity War, he was able to address how the two-part sequel will be extremely different from their work on Captain America: The Winter Soldierand Captain America: Civil War.

“I sat in the theater and watched Empire Strikes Back seven times in a row when I was a kid. Yeah, we’re science fiction fans as well, Dungeons and Dragons. We collected all the books when we were kids. We had figurines. Anything that you could think of that has to do with fantasy or sci-fi or superheroes was in our universe. We’re just going to approach the cosmic side with the same fervor that we did the earthbound work we’ve been doing. We also are going to work really hard to bring a psychological realism. We obviously can’t bring a naturalism to it because it doesn’t really exist outside of science fiction, but we can bring that psychological realism to it, to the characters, and that’s going to be our focus… Also, it’s going to be our focus to explore the cosmic side, applying the same rules that we like to apply to the last two films that we’ve done.”

Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on May 4, 2018. Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on May 3, 2019.
