"The biggest movie of all time!": Vision actor Paul Bettany hypes Avengers 4 in Infinity War special featurette
The actor, whose role was pivotal to the plot thanks to the Infinity Stone embedded in his forehead, was all praises for the film's directors Joe and Anthony Russo.
Three months and billions worth box-office collection later, fans are still in awe of Marvel's biggest ensemble release, 'Avengers: Infinity War'. And looks like the symptoms are no different for the film's cast either. Ahead of the superhero blockbuster's Blu-Ray release, tidbits from a special featurette 'Beyond the Battle: Wakanda' has made its way to the Internet and interestingly enough, a part of the clip has the Vision actor Paul Bettany dishing about the Infinity War experience.
The actor, whose role was pivotal to the plot thanks to the Infinity Stone embedded in his forehead, was all praises for the film's directors Joe and Anthony Russo, according to Screen Rant, as he further talked about the final act - that is the upcoming Avengers 4. "They are extraordinary technicians," Bettany said, gushing about the Russo brothers and the next Avengers movie, "They are making the biggest movie of all time, with the biggest movie of all time right after it."
Of course, Avengers 4 is going to be huge and Bettany hyping it up is hardly helping us, fans, from not going down the spiral of speculations. And this is beside the fact that we are yet to recover from the devastation that befell following the death of half the population of the Marvel-verse. Perhaps director Anthony could provide some solace for the time being with his reasoning on the way certain characters met with their tragic end.
"In terms of our choices about who Thanos would end up eradicating with his snap, it was very story focused," says Anthony in the special featurette. "How do we pay off each individual character's storyline most profoundly? The first person to go is Bucky Barnes, and it's shot from Captain America's perspective. You know, we're watching Cap go through the experience of watching [Bucky] go away. We're watching Okoye, whose number one mission it is in life is to protect the king. She watches the king go in front of her. And to see those characters react in those situations is very powerful and resonant."
Speaking of characters who perished and those who made it alive, co-director Joe shared some additional insight into why the core Avengers stood tall at the end of it.
"What we wanted to illustrate here is that this core group of Avengers, [quote-unquote] Secret Avengers in Falcon, Widow and Cap are hardened, tough, and work very well as a unit, and surprise the Black Order here," he said adding on how they, "Get the upper hand."
