The Russo brothers announced themselves to the world in a big way when they directed Captain America: The Winter Soldier, a film considered by many to be one of the best in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Before that film, they had directed various episodes of Arrested Development and Community but, make no mistake, the involvement they have had in the MCU has propelled them to new heights in the entertainment industry. After The Winter Soldier, they directed Captain America: Civil War and their next film in the MCU, Avengers: Infinity War, will be released next month.
Avengers: Infinity War
In a set visit by journalists last year, the Russo brothers spoke about the tone of the film as well as what other films influenced the making of Avengers: Infinity War.
Here is what Anthony Russo had to say in regards to the tone of Avengers: Infinity War:
Anthony Russo: “There are a lot of characters in this movie that have tones that they’re bringing from their own franchises. I think it’s a very unique film, I don’t think there are a lot of movies that have the kind of tone that this movie has, because it’s a combination of franchises and I don’t think we’ve ever seen that before on this scale. So I think it’s got a really unique tone to it, and I think it’s impulsive.”
Both of the Anthony Russo and Joe Russo had something to say when it came to discussing what films influences Avengers: Infinity War:
Anthony Russo: “The movies that we looked at, Two Days in the Valley, Out of Sight. We always look to movies for an inspiration for the energy that we’re looking for, or a narrative construct that we want to be inspired by, and those two films in particular.”
Joe Russo: “I think sometimes people have misinterpreted in the past when I’m talking about movies, how we’re using them. Really as inspiration for narrative imagery. These movies are so complex you need a unifying peace, or a sense of cohesion, and that cohesion can come from a narrative construct that you can apply all the characters to.”
