Just like any other artist, film directors have preferences between their own works. Not only if they have to choose one as the best, but also to choose a scene. The Russo brothers do not have, at the moment, a very extensive filmography. They only add eight feature films. Half of them from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And one of the two has pointed out your favorite shot of which they did in Avengers: Infinity War (2018).
Specifically, the most impressive of the battle of Wakanda. In it, the Avengers fight Thanos’ troops after T’Challa orders the energy barrier that covers his realm to be opened to make it difficult for them to reach the Mind Stone. Which, ultimately, they cannot prevent. The universal genocide is consummated and the situation ends with the death of Vision himself.
“That’s one of my favorite shots in the movie. Watch the army ladder down the hill. Difficult sequence to shoot because we had the [armadura] Hulkbuster in it”, explained Joe Russo to Vanity Fair. He doesn’t lack reasons. The charge of superheroes, their clash with the villains in Avengers: Infinity Warand the number of characters created an epic moment in the cinema.
The battle of Avengers: Infinity Wara resounding experience
“These costumes look amazing, but they’re designed to look amazing,” says Anthony Russo. “They’re not necessarily something you’d wear to compete in the Olympics or a sporting event. So to capture [en la grabación] all these actors have to run at full speed”. To which Joe replies: “For them to get the plans right, yes.” And that we can distinguish them as individuals and let us marvel at the whirlwind they compose together.
“I always felt an immense amount of power in the scene in the sense that the last battle on Earth would play out in Wakanda,” continues the eldest of the Russo Brothers, “this country that had cut itself off from the rest of the world and now literally He carried the fate of the world in his hands. And Joe nods: “Yes, it was a resonant experience, as filmmakers, execute the scene; Y [es] even more resonant now.” By how stunned she left us Avengers: Infinity War and what it meant for the Marvel saga.
