Joe Russo, director of Avengers: Endgame, says that Marvel would not have a inflexible plan for its Cinematic Universe.
In an interview with Deadline, Russo defined the way it all works: “The way it works at Marvel, and I’m sure at some point in the future they’ll talk about it, but part of Kevin Feige’s brilliance is that there’s not necessarily a plan,” he defined.
“There’s an idea, but you can’t have a plan if the movie you’re making fails. There’s no plan after that, right? So it’s really, like the movie was successful, there was a kind of enthusiasm, which more could we do? And that’s when new ideas came up, and we were hopeful. Oh, we hope one day we can get to the story, if we keep doing this well, maybe we can all get there, you know, like Infinity War and Endgame. things were invented between movies. And some of the best calls forward or backward were thought of after the fact.”
Russo provides for instance the choice to make Bucky Barnes answerable for the dying of Tony Stark’s dad and mom, one thing he dubbed a “chance.” Yet it is among the central plot factors of Captain America: Civil War.
The subsequent chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe arrives in May with Doctor Strange 2.
