The mighty snap in Infinity War is sure to have its repercussions. But the repercussions may be a bit more on our favourite superheroes. According to directors the remaining superheroes will have ‘much much harder’ edge in Avengers 4.
As a promotional event for the home release of Avengers: Infinity War, which officially hit DVD & Blu-ray yesterday, directors Joe and Anthony Russo recently sat down with Wired to talk about every hero in the film. The brothers talked about some interesting pieces of information regarding our favourite heroes, it was Joe Russo’s comments hinting at what’s to come that are the most interesting. His thoughts on Captain America and Black Widow attracted our attention. From his view point, fans can expect a much more “hardened” take on the fan-favourite characters in the next Avengers film.
During the course of three films – Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, Natasha has grown so much that she’s the most “richest” character to work with. He talked about her pairing with Captain America and said, “In Winter Soldier, what we found so compelling about pairing her up with Captain America was that he is this paragon of morality, and she is a paragon of grey,” he said. “But they’ve grown together, and I think when you find them in [Infinity War], they’ve been the Secret Avengers for two years… they’re like a tight-knit family now. Her, Sam Wilson, and Steve Rogers. It’s hardened all of them in a way.”
Falcon crumbled away after Thanos’ snap which leaves Black Widow and Captain America only in the secret Avengers. So, what does this mean for Captain America and Black Widow going into Avengers 4?
According to the directors, fans can expect to see them with a harder edge following the events of Infinity War. “I think all of those characters, specifically the ones who survived Infinity War — Cap and Natasha — we will see them with a much harder edge.” This surely means that the plot thickens for Cap and his accomplice. But in the end the enemy is Thanos, so it sure is to work out for everyone.
