Despite varying critiques, Avengers: Endgame is everything and anything Marvel could have hoped for. With an outlandish budget and star studded cast, the latest Marvel film has undoubtedly recouped whatever the studio has spent. In a matter of two weeks, the latest Avengers film picked up $2 billion quicker than any other film in history. It won’t be long until we’re calling it the most commercially successful movie of all time. Now, the true Marvel fans are still digging through the film’s plot and the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home release. During a recent interview, Joe Russo spoke to those fans about his creative process.
In a recent Q&A sessions with Comic Book, Russo spoke about his decision not kill off Captain American in Avengers: Endgame. He explained that removing Captain America would be too predictable. He said, “It’s not about trying to subvert expectations all the time, even though that comes into it. Typically when you’re in a writer’s room and you’re working through storytelling, and somebody says something feels obvious you go, well that’s the expectation.” He added, “And it’s not that we don’t always meet expectations, but the job, I think, is to surprise people.”
Let’s hope Russo continues working his magic on future Marvel movies. In the meantime, fans can expect to see the follow up to Avengers: Endgame this summer. Spider-Man: Far From Home will be released on July 2, 2019. Check out the film’s latest trailer right here on Def Pen.
