Russo brothers: 'Avenger: Endgame' is speaking to audiences globally

Avengers:Endgame / All Lights Film Magazine'Avengers: Endgame' directors Anthony and Joe Russo love telling stories on a grand scale and the most special part about making these films, for them, is the ability of the genre to transcend geographical boundaries.

'Endgame', which is being billed as the cinematic event of the year and marks the culmination of 22 movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), creates a community experience, the director duo said.

"This movie is speaking to people about what works for the theatrical experience. There is a scale of filmmaking that is just better on the big screen. And these movies are working globally, speaking to audiences all around the world," Anthony told in a group interview here.

Commenting on the movie versus streaming services debate that had taken over the entertainment industry recently, the director said maybe there are certain films that are more suited for the digital platform but big event movies that engage people around the world will stay strong in theatres.

"The fact that we are able to release 'Endgame' in theatres at the same time, creates an event. People can go out with their friends, experience the movie and then get on the social media, talk about it and experience the dialogue surrounding the movie. This is why it is working," Anthony added.

As if directing a mammoth two-part superhero film isn't enough, the directors often go to absurd lengths to avoid spoilers.

Such is the secrecy around the story that even actors don't get the entire script and the viewers are misdirected even in the trailers. The Russos have also written an emotional letter to fans, asking them to avoid giving out the plot details.
