Joe and Anthony Russo aren’t at this year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego because of their ongoing work on the upcoming Avengers 4, but that didn’t stop Joe Russo from sharing his excitement about the Russo Brothers’ upcoming Marvel Studios film.
“We’re very proud of it,” Russo said. “I think ultimately Avengers 4 may be our best work for Marvel. I think we’ve grown with every movie that we’ve made there. We’ve grown with the characters. We’ve grown with the cast. As filmmakers we’re very happy and very excited with the movie.”
Russo went on to share some insight into the brothers’ approach for next year’s highly-anticipated movie. “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,” Russo added. “I feel like with Avengers 4, because it was made before there was any response to Avengers: Infinity War, it’s really pure in that regard. The storytelling is very pure. It’s without any sort of external noise creeping in.”
Russo concluded by saying Avengers 4 is currently in post-production, with some additional filming to commence in August.
Avengers: Infinity War has been praised with nearly unanimous acclaim since its April release. Avengers 4,the upcoming film’s current working title, starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Josh Brolin and others is scheduled for release on May 3, 2019.
