A few weeks back, I sat down with the Joe and Anthony Russo, the brother filmmaker team behind Captain America: Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and the upcoming conclusion to the Infinity Saga, Avengers: Endgame. Unlike the usual Hollywood junket, we were not shown the movie. And the directing duo would not entertain any questions about plot, so this interview is completely spoiler-free.
In my conversation with the Russo Brothers, we discuss Stan Lee‘s final MCU cameo, the movies they watched before making Endgame, the change of tone and point of view, Captain Marvel’s changing look, the challenge to create lasting stakes and impact, the tightrope walk of being honest with the press when it comes to spoilers, and the unprecedented marketing campaign for this film, which somehow avoids revealing any of the major action scenes.

The amount of story details we know about the culmination of what is now being referred to as The Infinity Saga is staggeringly low, so we’ll take we can get when it comes to any details that make it through the cracks.
At this past weekend’s press junket, where press hadn’t seen the movie and the directors and cast couldn’t really talk about it, franchise star Chris Evans kinda, sorta, maybe gave us a slight hint as to what’s going on with Captain America. We already know that Avengers: Endgame marks the end of the actor’s deal at Marvel Studios, but it hasn’t been clear what that meant for his character. But today he opened the safe containing the secrets ever so slightly. Read More »
