Fans were saddened when Chris Evans issued a cryptic tweet suggesting his days playing Captain America had come to an end.
However, “Avengers: Infinity War” co-director Joseph Russo begs to differ.
Last month, the 37-year-old actor tweeted that he had completed filming on the fourth “Avengers” movie, adding a sense of finality when he wrote, “Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honour.”
Russo, who co-directed “Avengers: Infinity War” and the upcoming sequel with brother Anthony, spoke with Associated Press about Evans’ statements.
“I think it was more emotional for him than us. Only because he’s not done yet. And I don’t want explain what that means but the audience will soon understand what I’m talking about,” he teased.
Given the apparently fatal ends met by an astonishing array of Marvel superheroes at the end of “Infinity War”, Russo admits the sequel presented some big challenges.
“We killed half the Marvel universe so for us it really is about, in what ways can we surprise the audience and tell a very challenging story,” Russo added.
“We’re about halfway through the editorial process and it’s standing about three hours right now,” he continued. “It’s a very complicated movie,” noted Russo. “It has a lot of characters in it and you know we are putting in the work, so we’ll see where it ends up, but it definitely has a lot of story in it.” Watch:
