Will Avengers 4 reverse Infinity War climax? Directors say it won’t happen

The Russo Brothers, the directors of Avengers: Infinity War, have no intention of reversing the events of the movie in Avengers 4.

With the entire world recovering from Avengers: Infinity War’s incendiary ending, the film’s directors - the Russo Brothers - sat down with Variety to talk about why they chose to end Marvel’s 19th film on such a surprising note.

“We do our best work when we follow our instincts and tell the story we want to tell,” they said. “We’ve had one or two experiences early in our careers where we didn’t do that and we learned a very hard lesson: When you try to predict what an audience wants, you’re going to make mush. When you commit to the story you want to tell, it tends to have a much more resonant impact on the audience … The audience can tell you they love chocolate ice cream, but if you give it to them every day, they’re going to get sick of it real fast. You’ve got to stay ahead of them.”

Before directing Infinity War, the Russos had proven their mettle in two other Marvel films - Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War. Prior to jumping on board the Marvel juggernaut, the duo were best known for directing episodes of cult sitcoms, Arrested Development and Community. Their only feature credit before Winter Soldier was the 2006 comedy, You, Me and Dupree, starring Owen Wilson.

“Unless you have real stakes,” they continued, “you’re sort of limited in terms of the emotional impact a story can have on you. You have to go to very difficult places for the stakes to feel real, for the characters to feel like they have something to lose, for the audience to feel like they have something at risk. What we’re looking for in storytelling or art is emotional catharsis. And that’s not simply getting what you want. It’s getting an emotional experience that makes you feel and respond to it and energizes you on some level….I will say this: There is a real commitment on our end to the stakes.”

The Russos’ comments regarding the stakes and the commitment they’d to back their decisions up with puts a dampener on some fans’ theories. Many are expecting the events of Infinity War to be undone in the fourth Avengers movie, due out in one year.

Infinity War has made over $800 million worldwide since its April 27 release, including a record-breaking Rs 173 crore in India.
