Warning: This article contains spoilers for “Avengers: Endgame”.
Russo said in an interview for the new book “The History of Marvel Studios: The Creation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe”That Feige wanted to have a dark ending for the film.
- “Kevin’s initial pitch was that it was ‘Toy Story 3’ – a ‘they’re all going to jump into a furnace together’ concept,” he said.
But Joe and Anthony Russo, who directed the film, objected to the idea, saying the script wouldn’t celebrate the heroes in the right way for the dead to work, per Initiated. He said Marvel fans wouldn’t deal with the deaths that easily.
Joe Russo has stated that there was a time when Captain America and Iron Man both died in the fight to stop Thanos. But Captain America survived to have his ending with Peggy Carter after producer Nate Moore suggested it, according to Initiated.
- “When Nate pitched this, we knew this was the right way to go with Cap,” Joe Russo said. “And you better have varied results for the characters. It’s less predictable and creates a richer ending.
Russo Brothers, who directed “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame,” said in a question-and-answer session in December 2019 that they were considering returning to Marvel if the right storyline presented itself, as I said. wrote for the Deseret News.
Right now, the Russo Brothers have stated that they would like to adapt Marvel’s ‘Secret Wars’ storyline, where multiple characters clash, according to ComicBook.com.
- “I hope they’re close to getting their hands on some (Fox’s Marvel characters),” one of the Russo brothers said. “Listen, my second favorite character growing up, and one of my most treasured possessions in my comic book collection is Incredible Hulk # 181, which of course is Wolverine’s first appearance. I feel like the mission of the Marvel Universe is to continue to expand and surprise people. Surprise them with casting choices, surprise them with story choices. If we step into this world of crossover events, it certainly offers the opportunity for other large-scale stories from books like Secret Wars – which was another comic from my childhood. There is great potential to move forward if the Fox / Disney deal goes through.
