The Writers of Infinity War discuss Avengers 4 after the ground-shaking events of the recent film.


If the ending of Marvel Studio’s Avengers: Infinity War has left you shaken up, you might, by now, have already started to come up with theories as to why or how some of your favourite superheroes aren’t really dead, or at the very least will return somehow from the deadly click of Thanos’ fingers. At Film ‘89 Towers we’ve come up with a few dozen at least in order to soothe the pain of such grief.

However, the writers of the fourth as-yet-untitled Avengers movie may have thwarted all that and the time may be fast approaching us where we need to move on to the next stage of grief, acceptance.

Speaking to Buzzfeed, the film’s screenwriters Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus warned fans that it’s not as simple as everything going to go back to normal in Avengers 4 with Markus breaking the hearts of many a Marvel fan;

“Avengers 4 doesn’t do what you think it does. It is a different movie than you think it is. Also… (the deaths are) real. I just want to tell you it’s real, and the sooner you accept that, the sooner you will be able to move on to the next stage of grief.”

Marvel Studios and directors The Russo Brothers have gone to extremes to emphasise that whilst the two films are interlocking, they are not simply one film split into two and McFeely added;

“I think Infinity War is a fairly mature movie for a blockbuster. It’s got a lot of fun in it, obviously, but boy, it gets very mature. The second one is also mature. We’re going to own these choices, and hopefully surprise and delight you and get you invested. It’s by the same studio, the same filmmaking team. They were written at the same time, shot at the same time. They’re clearly connected, but they are definitely two different movies, one of which is dependent on what happened previous.”

The seemingly devastating loss of several fan favourites may apparently disprove the theory that their deaths are permanent, with most, if not all of the offed heroes slated to appear in upcoming films, but for now at least it would appear that the people behind the hugely successful franchise want to carry on twisting the knife into our already broken hearts.
