During an interview to promote their upcoming Syfy show Deadly Class, Joe Russo talked a bit about how they approached their next film in the MCU, the mysterious Avengers 4. We still barely know anything about the project and Marvel Studios has been tight-lipped on one of their most ambitious projects. After being a no-show at San Diego Comic-Con this year, we still have no idea when we could expect the next reveal regarding the project so Deadline used the opportunity to get some info on the film. The Avengers director does point out that they are quite satisfied with their work and how they’ve changed as filmmakers. What is interesting is their view on how feedback towards Avengers: Infinity War won’t have any influence on the fourth installment.
You know, it’s always an agenda of ours to block out the outside noise because it can lead you to make some bad choices with the material. We’ve learned over the years just to listen to ourselves, and it’s great that there’s two of us that we can have conversations with each other. We can really stay insulated and reinforce one another in our belief in the story that we’re telling. I feel like with Avengers 4, because it was made before there was any response to Avengers 3, it’s really pure in that regard. The storytelling is very pure. It’s without any sort of external noise creeping in.
It will be interesting to see what the “pure” storytelling is that he mentions. Luckily, he does confirm that they are sticking to the story they started and it highlights that they certainly had both films planned out, so they won’t adopt the story depending on fan reaction. He does point out that they will plan some additional photography soon, which points to them trying to fine-tune the film as they are nearing the film’s release. They have been involved with post-production since Infinity War so they still have a lot of work ahead of them to finish this massive project.
What do you think? Do you think the reshoots could have some influence from fan reaction?
