[SPOILERS] AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR : Screenwriters lean upon the fact that the deaths were real3 min read
Avengers : Infinity War is currently well above $800 M and should easily cross the billion mark before the week ends. However , it broke many hearts especially for what happened after the mad titan snapped his fingers. A callback to the iconic moment in the Marvel lore blended with the eerie events that followed will no doubt be remembered for a lifetime. However it might be brought to question that what happened to the heroes after they dissolved in thin air ?
While a lot has speculated that it might be a journey to the soul world and the Avengers 4 would see the return of the heroes , Avengers Infinity War and Avengers 4 screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely insisted that the deaths were real. They asked the fans to accept the deaths and in that way , it might be easier for them to go to the next stage of grief. “[Avengers 4] doesn’t do what you think it does,” said Markus to Buzzfeed. “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.”
That while may seem as a lie or half-truth on the fore-front especially considering sequels of Spider-man and Black Panther are under planning. Moreover , a decision like that can create outrage between the Disney Share-holders as well as in the Marvel-Sony plan ( Technically Tom Holland’s Spider-man still belongs to Sony). However it might be quite plausible that the characters won’t be resurrected as easily as many of us think – it would come at a cost. Maybe the life of the first Avengers ?
The Russo brothers had teased previously that like their progression in Marvel Cinematic Universe , Avengers 4 will have more stakes than Avengers : Infinity War. “Put it this way. 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.” McFeely added. “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.”
