The Russo Brothers on ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Deleted Scenes and Giving the Cast Fake Scripts

     April 24, 2018

Like all of you, I couldn’t be more excited to see Avengers: Infinity War. As a huge fan of what the Russo Brothers did on Captain America: Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War, my expectations for Infinity War are probably a bit too lofty, but if anyone can pull this colossal movie off it’s directors Joe and Anthony Russo, screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, and Kevin Feige with his amazing producing team at Marvel Studios.

With the movie set to world premiere tonight in Hollywood, Marvel and Disney held a massive press junket over the weekend with the stars and filmmakers here in Los Angeles. Since no one has seen the movie yet, doing the interviews was a bit unusual, so when I sat down with Joe and Anthony Russo yesterday, I used my time to ask questions I knew they could answer.

avengers-infinity-war-imax-posterDuring the interview, I the Russo Brothers talked about how they gave the cast fake scripts to try and prevent spoilers from getting out, if the script changed a lot during the development process, what it was like shooting the film using only IMAX cameras, which MCU actor ruined the most takes from laughing, deleted scenes, which MCU actor always wants another take, future projects, if they’d consider making another Marvel movie, juggling the various tones and character interpretations from the previous movies, and so much more.

Check out what they had to say in the player above and below is exactly what we talked about.
