Recently I attended the Avengers: Infinity War press conference, moderated by the great Jeff Goldblum, who’s known for his role in the MCU as The Grandmaster and other iconic roles, of course. This was definitely one of the larger press conferences I’ve gone to in my career as the stage was filled with 24 stars involved in the making of the film. Even better, we somehow managed to hear from every single person on stage, and sometimes that can be a rarity with only 6 or 7 people in a press conference.
Without further ado, here are 3 Fun Facts From The Avengers Infinity War Press Conference:
1. When asked how she felt about inspiring young individuals to be into mathematics and sciences, Letitia Wright ( Shuri ) responded by saying:
I wish I had a Shuri on TV or in the movies when I was growing up; maybe I would’ve stayed in math classes a little bit longer. But I’m really happy that this film and Shuri have allowed kids to feel like learning is cool and that they can contribute to the world with science, math, technology, and engineering
2. When asked how Kevin Feige, the mind behind the whole MCU, managed to ground the characters in the universe, he added:
“Usually when there’s the notion of ‘let’s do an Iron Man movie’ or let’s have the audacity to try to do a version of Infinity Gauntlet. It starts with the comics and us beginning to rip copies of the pages out, put them on walls and start to be inspired. And every single movie we’ve made leading up to and especially Infinity War, there are direct pages, storylines and sometimes actual lines of dialogue that come from those pages that we put up around our development room for inspiration.”
3. Co-director Anthony Russo was asked whether or not Agent Coulson would return in the Avengers Infinity War to which he replied:
“When we began developing this movie, we sat in a room with Kevin, Joe and I and we had a picture of every single person’s character who’s been in the MCU. We hung it up on the wall all around us, and we spent months talking about where we can go with each character, how we can draw them towards the story. It was a very long and creative process that we went through, thinking about where we can take the characters, thinking about the story, how we can combine the characters in interesting ways. It was the most fun, creative exercise I’ve ever been through in my life because it was a room where we all told each other stories about characters in the MCU.”
Well there you have it guys, Infinity War arrives in theaters April 27th so buy your tickets if they’re not already sold out. There will be a review of the film going up soon so be on the lookout for that.
