Prior to Avengers: Infinity War release, director brothers Anthony and Joe Russo have a lot to explain about their upcoming film. In a recent interview with The Telegraph, the Russo brothers explained that Avengers: Infinity War is the most intense of the three films they have made.
During the interview, in a conversation about the focus on human elements, balance of the tones and tonal shifts in the MCU, Joe Russo revealed that the one continuity that has stuck on throughout their four movies is emotional realism.
“The one continuity that you’ll find in the four movies we’ve done is emotional realism,” said Joe. “You can be dramatic and emotionally real. And you can also be comedic and emotionally real. Emotional realism at its core is the unifying tone to all of our movies.”
The director went on to state that the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War is the most intense in terms of emotional realism.
“Avengers: Infinity War is also by far and away the most intense of our three films,” Joe said. “But I think that as long as the characters are humanistic and they address the stakes with intentionality and true motivation you can take the audience on any journey that you want to.”
Joe also might have slyly given out some details regarding how the emotional realism will play a role among the characters in the film.
“The tone can shift on a dime. It is because they are aware of these characters, and they have an emotional history with them. So, when the Guardians show up hilarity can ensue immediately. But, also, we can take the Guardians to a place that’s intensely dramatic very quickly as well. ”
Joe stated a fine example with the Guardians as the tonal shift from humor to dark can even be observed in the trailer. There’s some amount of fun and laughter when the Guardians interact with Thor. But that goes away when Gamora is shown explaining the threat of Thanos to Tony. Furthermore, fans can also expect some form of emotional response from Peter Quill a.k.a Star-Lord as this will be his first time back on earth since he was abducted.
Joe revealed that the MCU superheroes in Avengers: Infinity War are only as good as the villain, Thanos. He added that they have spent a whole lot of time and energy to make sure that Thanos turns out to be the most intense and the best villain that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has ever seen.
When Joe was asked if Avengers: Infinity War is really a Thanos movie, he replied, “Without question.”
Avengers: Infinity War will hit theatre screens on April 27th.
