During a recent set visit, Collider sat down with Joe & Anthony Russo to discuss all things Infinity War, including where the Guardians are at by the beginning of the film and how they fit in overall:
“Anthony Russo: [The Guardians] have a great role in this film. Everyone is interwoven in this plot in a way where they have an emotional connection to the story, and are emotionally affected by the stakes of the movie. You can’t tell a movie with this many characters and not have each of those characters show up and honor them from the different franchises if they are not motivated to be there, if they are not in life or death circumstances, if they are not fighting to save their belief system or their way of life…[With the Guardians in particular] there are some changes…
Joe Russo: Groot has grown.
Anthony Russo: But I think changes are about chemistry and about camaraderie and the fact that they’re closer, and they’re tighter, and they’ve been doing it for a while. That’s, if there’s any change, it’s in that when they may or may not intersect with the Avengers in this movie, they have cemented their chemistry as a team.
Joe Russo: The relationships have deepened.
Anthony Russo: And they would stand in contrast with the other teams. Potentially.”
Surprisingly enough, it sounds like the Guardians of the Galaxy might be the most stable group of the many disparate groups of heroes layered throughout the upcoming Infinity War. I, for one, can’t wait to see how they interact with the rest of the Avengers, as it should be quite interesting just in terms of personalities.
Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on April 27th. Keep checking back to FandomWire for the latest updates as we move closer to its release!
