Avengers: Endgame Directors Anthony and Joe Russo could surpass Infinity War with "a lot of hard work," Joe Russo told Empire Magazine.
"If we are top Infinity War or not, I do not know, "he added." But we are trying to tell the best story we can with these characters. This is about to end the first decade of stories. I think it alone has a dramatic power to it. "
Details around Endgame – who only released his first trailer earlier this month, revealing the sequel's long-awaited title – remains close to his chest.
"We've put on the title we've put on the trailer," Russso added. "The last thing we want to do is give some traces to the story structure or tone."
The Russians, who first hell Captain America: Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War, previously told Business Insider They hope to provide a rewarding experience for fans – but their process first entails satisfying themselves.
"When Joe and I were hired to lead Winter soldier, that movie was many times bigger than anything we'd ever done as filmmakers, "said Anthony Russo.
"But the way we work as filmmakers is, we need to satisfy ourselves first and foremost. If we make a movie that spans us, it's the best we can do. We can't predict whether people like it, We just know if we like it. This is how we made all our Marvel movies, and that's how we do this, for all expectation and anxiety about it, nothing Joe and I serve better than keeping focus on the story trying to tell and tell it, the best way we can. "
Marvel Studios chief and architect Kevin Feige have characterized Endgame as an end point of the first chapter of the ongoing Marvel Cinematic Universe, set to continue beyond Spider-Man: Far from home in 2019 with future franchise income as Black widow. Black Panther 2, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
"The whole purpose of Infinity War and the next Avengers film next year should be an end – bringing a conclusion to 10 plus years, 22-film story in a way that had not happened before in this particular film type, "Feige says Uproxx.
"It was previously done in movies where there is a limited number of books and they stop telling the story of the books so they come to an end. Signs like Spider-Man or Batman or James Bond or Iron Man that existed so Long and always updated in comics or novels or movies, you don't necessarily get that kind of endpoint – and we wanted to do it, which is what these next two Avengers movie is. "
