"The dynamics were just not good. He was not enjoying himself but he took a couple apple steps back away from that company said goodbye and thank you and once he took those few steps back he was happy and he's living his life the way he want to now he works on jobs he wants to and that's all. He needed to make his life exactly what he wanted. Yeah I think like you said Oh. It's perfect title. Take risks it. It is a risk even if you're miserable in your life. It's very familiar to you and you are taking a risk of of changing things and I guess there's always always a possibility as bad as things are always be worse but you gotta you gotTa take that risk and say look. I'm I'm all work towards making things better yeah in it continues in Tales Tales from the open road where we continue to take risks while we were on the road and actually try to turn this into a sustainable lifestyle for ourselves. It's nothing set in stone. There was no guarantees at all sure so with your first book you probably learn some marketing lessons and basically the whole self publication process. Are there any valuable lessons you learned from that first book that you applied to the second book and things you would like to share air with the with the reader sort of the struggles that you went through in publishing the biggest struggle. I had with the first book was I wasn't sure if anyone would even read it so I wasn't willing to put in any money or additional effort into the book that doesn't quite sound right but what I mean by that is I didn't want to go out and hire professional rushing editor. I didn't want to hire someone to design the cover and that was I did everything myself. Kate was my editor a handed the books to a couple of friends friends and family they went through read. It let us know what they thought. Found Mistakes Cape probably read that book ten or fifteen times and I think she's completely sick of it or was a sick of it by the end of the process so even just getting the book published I learned a lot of lessons which was have some faith in yourself and really put your best. I put forward and what I did was I went back on the first book and I had to cover designed by a professional for this book from the get go. I'm having a professional designed to cover. I had some a couple of professional editors look through the book and provide their comments and edits. US occasionally read it a couple of times so far those are some great lessons learned. The other one was in terms of marketing again. I didn't really have confidence in the book so I didn't push it out to too many people it was kind of like I put it up for sale and then just started to kind of let people know about it whereas in this one I'm letting trying to let people know about it beforehand. So by the time this podcast is up tales from the open road should be on Amazon available for the order for people. I I think just having that confidence that people want to read the book they're interested really helps in the marketing effort and how far you're willing to go to promote that book to people and Dan use your audience so turning around looking at your audience that audience you built up and getting the book out to them for anyone listening to this that doesn't have audience built up my advice to you would be as you begin to write the book start a facebook group start collecting emails and get people on an email list you can give them updates and maybe if you're telling people about your process to write the book and getting a following that way but you need a following to get the book out there get get it rolling on Amazon or wherever you decide to publish it and then have those people kind of share your book with others to really make it a success yen. I noticed too when you were for when we saw you at the RV summit. I guess this was twenty eighteen. You actually gave a little talk about your process for for writing the book in publishing it and you brought copies with you. Do you think that type of light grass roots are on the ground. marketing really helped your your sales of the book in distribution. Absolutely I think it's all about getting the book in the People's hands and and don't be afraid to give away copies. Don't be afraid to let some people have it for this book launch. I actually had about thirty people who got the book a Beta version of the book got to go through it provide their thoughts and their feedback and at the end of the book. They'll have their names and stuff as part of the you know. Thank you to everyone. It's it's a great way for people to become invested in a book. Tell you what they think and then tell others what they think. Yeah word of mouth is very strong when the book I know when I read it. I thought everybody everybody that I could tell you on social media to our youtube channel and our instagram because I really enjoyed it. I I found it inspiring. I wanted other people read it so I think when you have the book is good like that and like you said you're okay with any our couple books. I bought but thank you thank you if you're okay okay with handing out the book and somebody reads it that one person that you gave that to enjoyed it so much and they told twenty people and out of those twenty people maybe five by then bought the book. I think that's that's a smart strategy as well. Do you have a date for the publication of the second book so I think the I just got. The almost final version of the covers wants to cover is finalized. The cool thing about Amazon is the book actually doesn't have to be finished in order for you to start your presale so I'm looking to start the pre-sale about mid. July and I'll run that for about thirty days so mid. August is when people should get the book delivered into their inbox or their kindle or whatever they happen to us. I'm also going to publish a paperback version of tales from the open road and one other thing that people people have been asking me nonstop kind of been dragging my heels doing it is an audio book or take risks. I've already recorded the first few chapters and as soon as that's done and then get tales from the open road out and publish. I'm going to start the audio book for Tales from the Open Road to take risks. Are you recording at yourself Joe. I had thought about having a professional. Do it going back to having you know professional designed to cover at your book that sort of thing but I was talking to people who are really audiobook their opinion and I agree with is it would be strange to read a book from someone they know and not have it be their voice voice because what a lot of people have told me as they read the book they hear me talking as they're reading so they said if someone else's that comes through and read the book read lead you in someone else's voice. It would be very off putting yeah. We listen to a lot of audiobooks traveling all the time. There's some places where you just. This can't find a good radio station so we we do listen to a lot of audiobooks and we prefer books that are read by the actual author because you get sort the passion behind what they're talking about as well. It's not somebody that is completely disconnected from the story. You're talking to the person that not actually lived the story so definitely makes for a as I wanna say it the other way around you said it in better way on State Sabrina. When we listen to audio audiobooks from people in it's not the author? We always felt that it's dry so I I think it definitely makes more sense to have the actual author reading the book and under here passionate or voice or I wanted to say one one interesting thing especially about book to is. Kate keeps a daily diary of of what we had to eat what the weather was like how we were feeling what we did that gay and I use that for writing the books so a lot if people have asked when their conversations in that in the book. How can I remember all of that well. That's how and the Nice thing is when I go back and I'm doing the Reading for the Audio Book. I remember a Lotta the emotions that were behind that and I can kind of recreate Adam having the conversation for the audiobook. Sam Don't think of the audiobook and I've already read read read the book. I'm I'm curious to hear all. Send it to you once. It's done now even even better. I like the sound of that even better so could you tell us can we. I just back up. A little bit used it out on the second book. You're using professionals. You're getting editors. What's your process of finding a narrowing down who to us what what editor where do you. Where are you even begin to search for one. And how do you though to trust okay. This is the guy or the girl that I'm going with the company that I'm going. There are a lot of facebook groups out there one. I'm part of its cold twenty two. I think it's called twenty to forty k. It's a facebook group for writers and if you you want I can explain that name later then there are subsets of that group which are like cover design and also editors so if you're on there and you're you're part of that group and you're looking for editors. You can post things to have people get in touch with you. That's how I found. I'm sorry the name of the book the name of the Group is twenty. Books is to Fifty K. and you can post things up there asking for help or if people know of editors or if they're editors in the group that are interested or have time to work on your book the way I found my cover designer was just that I post something of a few people wrote back. They sent over examples of stuff. They've done in the past and I found a woman that had done designed nine that I felt kind of resonated with the feelings behind my books. I went with the same designer for book to in terms of editors. What I did was I could out in our weekly news or biweekly newsletter just calls for Hey. If you're an editor and you have a passion about this stuff. I'm interested in talking to you and I got a lot of people responding to that and through that a few people were willing to take on the project they all sent me their comments back and they got integrated into the book so for me. I use my network which I always encourage people to do. In our network I just so happened to be the newsletter and there's a lot of great people there who were able to help yeah that a twenty bucks to fifty k. as a really good facebook group. I really liked the way that group is conducted. It's very helpful and not any negatively he on their whatsoever so it's really easy and comfortable to ask questions about subjects that surround writing whether it's nonfiction fiction no matter what John Russo Yeah I agree with you Joe. That's a that's a really good group absolutely and I would also suggest that anyone who is in the writing process. If you're looking at having your professional do something like editing or cover design. Keep in mind there for people who are good..

Against levels Christopher Markus, and Steve mcfeely, and then just an hour or so later. The rooster brothers Joe and Anthony arrived, and we sat down in one of their offices, wall, liberally festooned with plans for upcoming projects. My lips are sealed to talk all things endgame. There is some overlap of questions with the markets mcfeely interview. But hopefully the Rousseau's answers are interesting and eliminating and different enough. The first you will hear is Joe Russo apart from mine. That is enjoying. How are you both get? How are you? I'm good good. Good good. This is recorded the afternoon, the evening after the night before sense. How you feeling and how you feel about the reaction to the film so far? Good. Listen, this a lot of pressure on a movie like this, obviously, you've got ten years of fans investment emotion and passion. On your shoulders. The, the mission for us as storytellers with this movie is trying to bring it to satisfy, and conclusion seems like people are responding to that feel satisfying last night was a huge threshold for us was the world premiere it was the very first time we screen movie, the finished film for anybody. First time the actress had seen the movie, so there was a lot going on yesterday. It was really, really. I think the, the actors seemed very pleased with the films that was no-one was going, what? You killed me. About it is a bit. And it's a little nerve wracking when they haven't seen the film and, you know, I can imagine. I mean there's, there's tons of stuff to get into is. There's a lot of movie movie around dense one, but that start with a question that's on everybody's lips, which is Joe, you've commute again, what's what's going on? Yeah. I mean, you know, it's really we just try to sneak them in every film. But I'm always first on the cutting room floor doesn't work fit any war. We didn't need it. So went bye bye. We did.

An Interview with 'Avengers: Endgame' Directors, The Russo Brothers
"This popcorn where we tell. You. What's happening at the movies? And as far as the world's concerned, there is no other than adventures endgame, really, you know, so let's face it. And we have the director of that movie with us. Anthony Russo Joe Russo. How are you, sir? You know, everybody's talking about the fact that in its first week it's broken every record. It's like a one point two billion dollars in doing it. But what really gets me about this success, which I certainly don't begrudge you. I'm sure you're getting ninety percent, right. It's of course, this point four movie. Oh, yeah. Totally it. But to me this movie is a love letter to everything that the avengers mean to so many people true made by people who seem to be not only gifted at what they do. But who are fans of what this is. Although I'm sure the fans drive you crazy with the questions that they have. So before we start. I just want to show you a clip. This was some of the people that were interviewed at the theater just wanting to talk to you can say. Guys so much. This movie was pretty incredible. I've seen in multiple times already. I gotta say it gets better every time. Thank you for making the movie. Inspired me to want to make films in the future. Maybe I'll become a movie director myself or something, and maybe I can be one of. Hankers? Thank you for bringing by childhood to life making. Thanks to the British resolve and other castes for the venues movie. It was really good things you so much. Movies. And I just really wanna see what happens next. And if you need extras in the movie just ask guys do make moral. Excelsior. Specialists feel good. That's why we make these movies. Yeah. You just have to. I think next. Oh, you should do. Check off. Yeah. We're headed that movie called cherry cherry based on a book by Nicole Walker about that army medic. Yeah. Back in this gets hooked on heroin to deal with PTSD. So slightly different subject matter than the marvel. Bo superpowers. No, no. It's amazing is Tom Holland. Yeah. We'll be playing the lead. So. Look, it's still family. Exactly. And that within ventures in game. What Tom and does in that. With rubber Downey's. Our man. Is so motion and so much that if you're not feeling that you you've lost all ability to feel anything. Well, the I mean, the great thing about Marvin. I think why so many people relate to is about family relationships. You know, there's there's mothers daughters, fathers and sons, you know, surrogates doesn't mean that people are related, it's just they they have a they've created a family. What we also like about it with amazing about seeing fans like this is that very rare as a storyteller, you get to make movies like this that mind people together, there's a real sense of community behind these films. The global reaches significance a fan in the UK can talk to a fan in India can talk to a fan in Japan. And it really is binding experience we snuck into the theater on the Thursday night that it opened in Los Angeles after the lights from the back. And it's rare that we've been in a movie theater where we've had that kind of experience people are cheering, and laughing and crying. And cheering some more and jumping on their seats and really had an energy to it that that seems very unique to to this narrative experiment, but when anything is emotional like that, and what you did last year with Infinity war you snapped your fingers at half of the world's gone that boy what a power move that was well, that's one of the one of the great joys of working in the marvel cinematic universe, and with a serialized, storytelling, the cinematic level is that we get to take chances, and we get to go to places in in individual films that you might not be able to otherwise, you know, it's it's very rare to see a Hollywood movie, especially a big major release Hollywood movie where the bad guy wins, but you know, life life is in life that sometimes the bad guy wins we'll have to endure that. So the to be able to tell a story where the bad guy wins in. It's okay for the audience because they know that even though the movie ended that way there's still hope for. In the future. Because the story is not over that. That's a very, you know, unusual experience unusual opera -tunities for filmmakers to tell that kind of story. Well, they can't seem to accept that. It's over. I think that's what you hear people saying I saw it three times. Right. You know, you're going back to it. I don't think not just to look at the nuances of what you might have missed, but I need to hold onto it. They can't really be gone. Well, nothing has value unless it has an ending, right? I think that why the, you know, there's so much energy around this movie is that it's a true. Finale. There's you know, the this isn't ending for for a number of the characters that people come to love the last. How do you decide in endgame who's gonna live and die who is going to survive? It's really based on an individual character level. Like, we just study each of the characters we think about, you know, our job on the movie our goal for this movie was to to end the end the run that began eleven years ago now with the first iron man movie. So we looked at. Every one of those characters we looked at their arc that they'd been on through all of the films, and we just started to think about what was the most satisfying climax for each of those characters individual level. And then we began to see how it all sort of orchestrated together with one another. But that was our road. It wasn't. There was never a mandate from marvel about somebody had a live or somebody had the die. It was simply what is the most satisfying story. We can tell. Yeah. I would think that marvel and Kevin Feigen everybody would say they would be betting every decision. That's being made about this. Because these are characters that live in everybody's heads and hearts, well, when we came into marvel it was with the spirit of this Rupp shin. And if you are previous work was very disruptive work, arrested development is very cynical sitcom comedy that was on communities deconstruct genre. That was sort of the specialty of that show. And then you know, we started at a point marvel they had already built the first acts of this Infinity saga. We came into the second act when he Tricia so to deconstruct, and we started making really disruptive choices and they got excited by that. Because choices were working. And I think that, you know, we're we're at a moment of transition for narrative, we really are this generation that is coming up consumes narrative and a very different way than we do there used to consuming narrative, and you know, thirty seconds on Twitter, ten minutes on YouTube, the watch it on the bus. They'll watch it in school. They'll watch it on a plane. The watching the bathroom, you know, they they have a different PHD content consumption. They can handle the different level density. Then we can they want to realize storytelling because they like that emotional collectively. And also with that's your life, storytelling gives them is conversation. Long-term conversation that they can have over a decade about how much they love characters. Who you know, who's right and who's wrong who's gonna live who's going to die? And you know, so social media's become a real driver for pop culture when you think back on endgame. What are like three or four things that stick in your mind about the making of it? You know, what you without giving away too much? Although we'll give away some things we don't want to give away or spoil the just in terms of shooting and thinking he said, and then watching the emotional moments, and what's nice about the film is that because we made such a radical choice the enemy in the war. We open the film, and it stays in a very somber tone for about thirty or forty minutes, which again is unique for commercial movie, and we referred to it as the section where you know, people have to take their medicine. This is you know, we're gonna we're we're going to swim in the waters of of pain and regret and guilt. That all of these characters feel about what happened and that's unique. And I think that you know, so that that's that to me was very memorable being able to shoot scenes that you know, was with emotional truth to them. You know, we love when Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans get to work together. They're very they're very elegant together and understated. So they had a really beautiful senior early in the movie, I think the other thing will remember Robert Downey. This is really, you know, this is one of the most iconic characters and pop culture history. You know, I would I would argue movie history. I mean, you know, I don't think anyone would argue. With you about that. Which is why playing with any? I mean because the amazing thing about iron man is that he such in the beginning of all this such a cynic such. It's all about me. Yeah. Until he sell field to some kind of self sacrifice. Right. That's exactly because that he goes from selfish to selfless over this this ten year journey, and he makes a lot of poor decisions along the way makes a lot of good decisions along the way. It's not a very human decisions along the way. And I think that you know, the audience went on a ride with them. And it's a it's a very profound experience for them. What you said, I think that's why even though he dies in this movie, and his this this beloved character is is now leaving the movies because it's the completion of this ark for this character because it sort of a movement from selfishness to the ultimate act of selflessness and self sacrifice in the he's giving up a lot by making this choices wife daughter who are so important to them. There is sort of like, a beauty, and there's a nobility and an

"You know, how do we how do we sort of tear down? How do we tear apart captain America? And then how do we tear apart the event like how do we tear apart at captain America? That is exactly what the winter soldier is. You know, how do you get captain America do lie to his superior? Here's how to get captain America realize that the that the causative serving is correct. You know in winter in civil war. How do you tear apart the avengers? How do you divorce this family? How do you destroy the relationship between Tony and Steve? And then the moving on civil war. I mean Infinity war, you know, own a guess what? Guys, the bad guy wins. You know that happens in life. You know? So it's like the whole road that we got to travel through the MC. You was basically what plays to our tastes and instincts as storytellers like the strongest part, I think of us that we have to offer creatively. So it was weird because I don't know if we had entered I don't know that we would have built the series up as well as if had had we entered at the beginning. We just got really lucky to enter when we did. And the and that I we got lucky that you entered when you did because it's the emotionality of that that makes his movies, so satisfying. I mean, and I always think that I think we're winter soldier was like two and a half hours law. She went to an hours long. I thought it's the extra half hour where you spend just on his anguish as a black and white man integrate world, you know, that that was made it so satisfying. That was what was interesting is the extra time you're able to spend in script on screen, you know, dealing with the new. Onces of life in the modern world it it's it's it's it. Fascinating to hear you say that because like those are the parts of the movies that we cherish the most as well. And like as you would expect for as wonderful as marvelous and wonderful as Disney is those are always the parts of the movies that we get challenged the most, and those are the hardest for us to sort of defend, but we also believe in those as as as critical aspects to the to the explore your hardest movies in this one to defend. Well, I think earlier in the film, we maybe the the whole the whole fight the twenty minute movie that ends in failure. And then the five years later, I was like that's the whole. That's the whole genius right there. Twenty minutes in your like, five minutes, and you're doing it. And then it all hits rock bottom. And it's five years later. Everybody's let's play with that Haitian. Right. As you're gonna walk into the theater and assume, you know, this is sort of quickstart linear adventure movie as these guys all band together to go find fantas Kip gauntlet back. Well, what if you know, twenty minutes, and that ends in failure? And where the movie go from there. That's the most compelling thing. We like writing ourselves into a corner and think. Breaking bad's, probably one of our, you know, our favorite pieces of entertainment in the last forty years because it consistently ends in a corner. And you just have no idea in the next episode how they're going to get out and it's fascinating to watch. And it's, you know, it's it's reeling to watch. And so we, you know. Similarly, tried to constantly put ourselves in corners here where the audience would have to journeys with us and be surprised. So is there a Russo method when you first get something how the way to look at something or the filters you put it through. I mean, it's different. I guess he redeveloping with writers from scratch. That's a different set of filters is something hands you something. I mean, what does it need to have to be something that you guys relate to it's a good question. I mean, look, I mean one thing that I've been grateful about in terms of the road that Joan I have been able to travel is like we have very eclectic tastes. And we'd like to be surprised. And so we've been very fortunate that like if you look at our career like we've made movies for as little money as you could possibly make a movie for and now we've made movies for.

The movies for television, the council of dads and courtroom k the pilot for the series lucky and the pilots and episodes of the series community and arrested development following a recent screening of the film at the harmony gold theater in Los Angeles. The Russo brothers spoke with director Todd Holland about filming avengers endgame during their conversation. They discussed their love of subverting genre the crucial task of balancing tone and the unique opportunities for emotional payoff created by the marvel cinematic universe. Please note that this is a spoiler filled discussion. Thank you five. Everybody sitting through that on Sunday. Very nice Sunday. I tell them the guys just how moving an amazing. It was just backstage just now. And I just say the one thing destruct me in the twenty two movies in eleven years of this segment of the marvel cinematic universe is how you brought the world into inclusion in the super hair world, you've been a part of that whole thing. It's it's you had a scene in it wasn't Infinity where the women. Yeah. The where the women fight they protect then you escalated this in this movie. Right. I think it's just amazing. How you marvel as a company, and you guys directors have managed to keep pace with with the world. Absolutely. I think the thing we're most proud of with marvel moving forward is how inclusive it is. And there's a lot of stuff that we know about that's coming that, you know, that hasn't been announced yet that's going to be. I think very very. Very very exciting for people all over the world. These are global stories and everyone has the right to see themself. Represented onscreen. And I also think, you know, right from the get-go like from our first marvel movie with winter soldier, you know, traveling the world with that film. And especially seeing how that movie plays to audiences in developing countries. You realize you know, the world is bigger than the United States in Europe. And there are a lot of places in the world where there are things that we all take for granted that are the the furthest thing from a given. So there I there ideas in these movies that are critically critically important not to just audiences here, but audiences the world over that mean that means something to them. And that it's a great reminder. When you're when you're telling a story that is global and this inspiring people to see themselves onscreen as superheroes in end dream. If you don't know Anthony, Joe come from a very diverse background is great interview in DJ quarterly. This this cycle. Its current issue. So pick it up or look at it in your magazine been at home, if you have it, but you know, they started independent film moved into television. We were together and television for a decade, and then transition into into the into the marvel universe and back into film, and what I said to them twenty two movies and eleven years you finally have a full season. Awesome..

"But at the same time what you've done clearly facts like a wad of these franchises going forward. Guardians three is going to be a lot different because of the events that have happened fun of handing off the baton right against this gun weigh in on what you're doing. No. Because here's why. And again, this is something we learned that from the moment we joined the. And it's one of the main reasons why we've stayed so long is Kevin has this amazing process of this attitude of one movie at a time, and it is it is the key one of one of the cornerstones of his success with that series is that he will he wants every single movie to become whatever it wants to become to have the freedom to become whatever it wants to become without being saddled with having a hit a Mark for this or that or the other because that's the way you crush crush narrative. You're like with the second you start looking at one movie and going, oh, this movie has to do this because to to move down the chess board, we're going to do that like that's where you told that movie falls apart. Even if a narrative we put somebody on a corner. Luckily, you've got someone like James Gunn who's getting out of that. Exactly. And we all appreciate to to an extent being handed complicated scenarios because it provides for more interesting stories have you read his script for volume through. I we have now. No again, like was the nice thing was we just focused on this movie. Because remember for six years prior seven we were finishing one film while breaking the next film right going on a press tour releasing the movie getting right back in the writer's room and going right into prep and then shooting and then posting while we're posting breaking the next film. And it was nice. This move was so hard at the end that was so nice to not have to be working on two things at the same time. Some people have detected what seems to be potentially some references to other characters. Is there a name or reference in their Koi is talking about what's going on? Maybe people may interpret it that way for the record could you smiled as he said, maybe could just be an earthquake. What about captain Brin Britain, potentially Peggy talking about a character Radha? Yeah. I think we maybe or maybe it's just a guy named product that doesn't seem as interesting. You were obviously very reluctant when we talked in the past about what the major film influences templates were in a way. There's no templates what you've done here. And it's kind of re define what a movie can be in some ways, which is quite a feat hundred years into filmmaking. But that being said, that's the future has to be somewhat on your mind and some moments are the other other references reference points at all that came to mind, the odd thing about this movie is we were really because it was the job for this movie. The goal for this movie was to bring the entire M C you to a moment of conclusion all we looked at was the previous twenty one movies believe it or not. And that that was it. We were we were completely fed by and focused on those films. And that was really we didn't have another reference outside of that. I mean, certainly back to the future came into the equation simply on a time travel question because it looms so large in the collective consciousness. For for what time travel is. And what our experience of it is. So we had to address that film, but that was more on a sort of intellectual level than on sort of stylistic level. But what about even like when I saw one of arguing my favorite scene in the film is Tony and Howard stark. Just like I want to start the Downey junior roster campaign right now one hundred percent. Do we sign us up truly? Reminds you not that we needed reminding like what an actor. He is. But that achieves of back to the future a little bit. Now. That's something. That's a coincidence..

"Man, the wasp for union moment. But it just started feel like an endless series of reunions where their future movies coming and those moments can be had it also speaks different time the level of quality of your actors where like so many of them can do so much in such brief moments. I would submit that Benedict. Cumberbatch does more in like his three minutes. Film actors of one hundred absolutely great up survey shin. He is amazing. I mean, he he holds the screen like he knows what is detected. Brings a spirituality to that to that fight and predestined to just in his the performance. It's also great. I mean, I, you know, the fact that he is when he does show up he has a central relationship to the end point of the movie, and Tony knows it. You know, what I think the audience knows it at I think that also gives them a little power there. You know as well. What what is there a scene that you can pinpoint that change the most throughout scripting through shootings seen that you shot a couple times that just wasn't you had the tweak would be would be the final battle. I think, you know, something just it was so complex. There are so many characters there, we really to what we were just speaking about, you know, we had to just experiment with so many different ideas about what was going to happen on that battlefield. And we did try a few of them. And it just took us a long time and. For mayor. I mean, there was marriage. Of that involved. Fan of his troops showing up. And then black widow having to run the gauntlet and getting shot as she runs the gauntlet leap off the cliff, and it again, it just felt like it was distracting from the what was most powerful about the scene, which is two friends one of them having the daughter of having to die, and then and then literally fighting each other to be the one who who dies and that just seemed like a more. Emotional and on on story execution of it. And we ended up scrapping the more complicated version of warmer so much conjecture over the last few years about like if and when Chris Hanover, the shield cap hands over the hands over the shield who goes to where there debates internally about was a no brainer that just the medically made sense that it had to be made sense that it was Sam I don't think that they were significant debates at all I mean. Portrayed in the film as in the films, very damaged and not necessarily guy that you would want to trust with another weapon because he can always be corrupted, and you know, Sam if if anyone matches caps integrity over the course of the last few films that Sam from the time that they met on the mall in DC through the end of this film, and he just seemed like the logical choice in the marvel cinematic universe. We don't have all the context of the comics have right? We only tell the stories that that the bring completion stories that we've been telling and that seemed to make the most sense as guys that obviously most closely closely associated with that grouping with those characters you must be just curious now sort of where that heads as you kind of hand the baton particularly for those characters see what the series or Disney is going to be like are you in? Involved at all in terms of what they are doing. We're so focused on finishing this and they've been working on those while we've been working on this movie. And this is Hercule, and you have to understand it was it was an enormous creative..

"With the new was this the relationship between. Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes was so intimate and so complicated. And remember as we were sort of circling that movie in wrapping our heads around at creatively. We ran right at that relationship because it's like all just layers things so much, and it sort of creates creates such an intimacy between those two especially when they're in an adversarial sort of position to one another through that film. So I think we always run at these really intimate relationships in these movies because again, you're dealing with these big on samples where there's lots of story. It's very complicated. Like, how do you get to a very rich essential complicated relationship quickly right in certainly family relationship families that in the source of drama. The remember talking to you about Infinity war, and you talked to others about this in in some ways that was more challenging film, and that you began correct me if I'm wrong with the ending of these two films. You knew where you wanted to end up, absolutely. We have to what was the what were the elements that were the end of end game. What were you slows your starting point? What were the ending points? You knew you had. We knew we knew what we're gonna do Steve Rogers. I mean that was probably the most important part of the process for us was understanding where he was going to go as a character. And we knew what was going to happen with with Tony stark. And that the snap is going to be reversed. But at the cost of his life, and once we understood those two key dramatic elements for co leads of the marvel universe. We then go backwards through the story and right towards the endings. And certainly if you go look at the Tony and endgame. He's reticent at the beginning. He has a child now. And he is worried about jeopardizing the life of his child by messing around with stones and with time travel. And then ultimately he has to make a sacrifice to leave his wife and child in order to restore. The universe and bring back or protect. I should say the lives of everyone who's come back. One of the most puzzle moms, I've had an a movie theater, and sometimes the the moment when cap gets the wields the hammer. It's yeah. It just brings an audience to its feet depending on where you are. How far back does that idea ago? I think it goes all the way back to Altron. You know, it was something that was. I think everyone every everyone who's a marvel fan in that moment where cap test to the hammer. Felt deep down in their heart that he was worthy in that. He could potentially lift that boy, wouldn't it be special one day if he did, and you know, obviously. If you create drama around the circumstances of him wielding, the hammer and then kicking his ass for thirty seconds. After that, we could we felt like we could create a Rizal moment for the after confess. We have we have snuck into more than one theater over the past week and have taken great pleasure in witnessing the audience reaction to that moment. I'm sure you might as men you burned. It what why why in your heads was not able to wield the hammer until this moment when our heads. He was able to wield it, and he didn't know that until that moment and ultra where and when he tried to pick it up, but cap sense of character is sort of humility is sort of like out of deference Thors ego cap in that moment, realizing he can move the hammer decides not to and selfless. One is exactly exactly. It's very source. I knew it. Which maybe you can't hear yet in movie theaters. On a more trivial note around cap did Evans, always appreciate the Americas s beat the controversial joke..

"This is in tireless spoiler free and reason spoiler free is because Chris hadn't seen anything at the time. Right. So yeah. But context your list came into London to go two and a half weeks ago, something like that. And they brought six minutes of footage. And it didn't really there's nothing to talk about really and also on his wear that this interview will be out now day after is released in the UK and the day of release in pretty much the rest of the world. And I had you know, I didn't want to be going. So tell me about the six minutes footage when most people listen to this already seen the film by that point. So instead, we talk about lots of stuff we talk a little bit generally about endgame of some of the challenges of Megan endgame, but otherwise it's just kind of a bit of a bit of a chat. I should also point out fucking idiot. Not for the first time. But or the last turned up this interview with two guys I brought to microphones I realized is three seconds before they walked into the room. And so my questions are recorded on my iphone, which I'm sure looked really professionals those guys. So there. Might be a slight sound disparity between between those but producer? Jane here is going to sort it out. No pressure. And yeah, I can't remember anything about it. But it was I had. Awesome. So do remember we talked about. So we talked about things like whether they got up banana split because what when I interviewed for the endgame feature for for empire. Lisa their tradition when they're finishing movies. They go for banana splits every week. Put it been so busy that they didn't get a chance to have a banana split classmate. But that I did do a word handle riff. So that might still be in there who knows just various things about how they can dealt with the pressure of living this movie on what they're gonna do next. Okay. So did they I must no other.

"I'm good like, let's do it. I actually loved that call of an intermission. The only issue that I would have if I'm running the studio here is I'm saying, look, you gotta turn this movie down to two and a half. Because I want as many screenings of this film as possible. There's only so many hours in a day. She's they're going to have three hours long, but we can make so much cash with this. So what is the fair median for you? Is it maybe two and a half? Or do you think that we could actually do three hours and still be able to break all the box where huge nerd, so I feel like we would do three hours, but that's not all of America. Let's not everyone that's going to theaters. So I feel like they've successfully been able to capture not only superhero fans, but fans that aren't necessarily didn't grow up with the comics and stuff like that. They've done that. Really? Well, so they might they might be that might be why it's not six hours. Why do you want to say because you were talking about what the title might be? And they said that it's something that's already been said. So I find that really fascinating. Could it be like, you know, what did he say like cool at Squidward or whatever? You know, whatever or something about like, a sweet rabbit. I would love that ventures for sweet. Kind of take my money, please. I'm so excited about that. What's interesting is that they also hinted at this was Joe Russo. Coyly hinting is the Rousset brothers are really good at teasing fans like white with the car, and you said Danny and one of the things that they were acid. Recent QNA was when might we see the first trailer for Infinity war four, and he said that it may or may not happen before two thousand nineteen o genius. Not telling us anything it gets us talking on silly shows like movie talk about when could we see a trailer. Marquette is there a chance that we see trailer for this huge? Maybe the biggest movie of all time before the year is out. I don't think we're going to see it before the years out. I just I I don't think that they will because they have us chomping at the bit too much. And then one thing with what you brought up with like the title, Danny? Because remember back in the day. The Rousseau's were like, oh, yeah. Whatever this title is. It's something that will scare you. He didn't say like scared. Iheart fans. He just like scare you as in general. So my thought processes it has to be something that will scare someone who's not a fan. So it's like if we hear something like specifically fantastic than it's just like. Oh, okay weekend. Nobody else will. So it has to be something. So I just turned your question into something else entirely. We're gonna. Old are the final avenger laughs avenger circle. Catholic this assemble. Now, you get to put them back together. Literally the end. Exactly what happens. Should scare us. And then going back to my previous question that marquee so Abeille turned into a better point was we're going to see a trailer any footage before Christmas. I put it on my list for Santa. So if he's listening I want that as my Christmas gift this year. I want to see that trailer. I think Mark is probably right. And we won't see it. But I hope so to be honest, though, I'm still so laser focused on captain marvel that I can't really think about anything else until that happens. That's all I can. That's my whole brain is dedicated to rehearse it right now, basically at all hours of the day, Danny following what marvel did with the first INFINITI war film. We saw footage of that. We saw trailers of that before Black Panther at. So I think that they wanna lean into captain marvel, and certainly and if anybody deserves their own movie before Infinity where it would be captain marvel don't confuse the brand. But there is a movie that Disney's releasing in theaters. I know that it's not as big as it used to be with the studio trying to attach one of their properties on the tails of another one. That's coming into theaters. Mary Poppins is returning into theaters. This Christmas time, it's very easy to get a bunch of families in there..
