Hi! Russo brothers here.
We’re the directors of Avengers: Infinity War.
We’re here to talk about every hero
in Avengers: Infinity War,
so let’s get started.
Every hero in Avengers: Infinity war
(This video contains spoilers)
Tony Stark is Iron man.
Think in a lot of ways, he is the heart and soul of the Marvel Universe.
Tony Stark’s powers are fascinating
because they basically come from his mind.
They come from the scientific knowledge, his brilliance,
his intelligence and his sort of aspirations.
It allows you to sort of track a journey in the character
and watch him evolve and sort of better himself
through the use of these powers.
He is a fascinating character, a character we love,
because he’s eminently flawed,
and we like characters that are challenging
and that express their humanity.
And I think Tony Stark does that as well as any of the characters.
He started off as a narcissistic, alcoholic
and grew into a hero which I think makes him
eminently relatable why he signifies what the Marvel Universe stands for
is in the notion of the character first,
and that heroes are defined through the choices that they make.
He’s one of the most exciting power sets of any of the characters.
Thor is an Asgardian god.
He started off heir to the throne of Asgard
and found himself not worthy of taking on the mantle of King of the Asgardians.
And I think he’s been on a very complicated journey
where he struggles with his ability to feel worthy and be worthy.
-Thor: Well, he’s never fought me.-Rocket Raccoon: Yeah, he has.
Thor: He’s never fought me twice.
And he’s looking for a moral compass in his life.
What we love about him in the Infinity War is that
he’s been torn down to his essential parts.
And he goes on a hero’s journey,
which is a very underdog journey for someone of a stature
because he has lost everything in his life.
In a lot of ways, he is the driving heroes arc to the movie,
which stands in direct opposition to Thanos’s argument.
I would argue that had Thor chopped his head off at the end of the movie
that the movie would belong to Thor,
but because he didn’t, it belongs to Thanos.
Now that these actors have played these characters over multiple movies,
Chris Hemsworth was very valuable, coming of Rognarok.
Because we were executing these movies before
we are able to fully process what had been done with the character.
Both Chris Hemsworth and Taika Waititi were really really important to us
in terms of understanding that very unique journey that that character had in that movie,
so that we can figure out how to pick up the narrative
with where he was in his life now.
He is in a very interesting place
In Infinity War,
he and Banner have been at odds over who control the host body.
Since we first met Bruce Banner, it’s a Jekyll and Hyde relationship
they grow at turns weary with one another.
-I don’t know. We’ve sorta been having a thing.
Hulk resisted to help Banner,
because he believes that Banner only uses the Hulk to solve problems.
And Hulk, I think he started perceive himself as who should control the host body
because he doesn’t feel like Banner brings it off a lot to the table.
In Infinity War, Banner has to become the hero.
And go to war with Thanos in the….
And he does sound and successful,
but ultimately not at beating Thanos.
I’m Steve Rogers.
We enter the MCU by directing Captain America: Winter Soldier.
What we love about the character is the humility of the character,
the fact that he came from very basic roots
and through sort of his will and his aspiration
and the sort of fortune of being chosen for the Super Soldier program.
He was able to sort of make more of himself,
than he would have been able to otherwise.
I think that’s what people really admire about the character.
Joe and I never really responded to the earlier comics
where he is sort of a simplistic symbol of patriotism.
We were always in… interested in exploring something a little more complex with the character
and really understanding him on more of a human level.
That’s I think the journey that we’ve been on with that character through several films now.
Her unique distinction of being a villain who was turned into a hero
她的人设 对我们来说 她是个比较丰满的角色
makes her, for us, one of the richer characters to work with.
Scarlett transfers in incredible ranges as an actress,
like can embody at the same time vulnerability and toughness.
And I think that’s very difficult to do.
We’ve been fortunate enough to grow that character over three films:
The Winter Soldier, Civil War and Infinity War.
In The Winter Soldier,
we found some compelling about pairing her up with Captain America
was he is a, sort of this paragon of morality,
and she is a paragon of gray.
But they’ve grown together,
and I think when you find them in this movie
and they’ve been in the secretive Avengers for two years because
they’ve been hunted by Ross in the government.
如今 黑寡妇 山姆·威尔逊和史蒂夫·罗杰斯之间
They are like a tight-knit family now,
her, Sam Wilson and Steve Rogers.
It’s hard to all of them in a way,
you can’t go on a run without it affecting you emotionally.
So I think all of those characters,
specifically the ones who survive in the Infinity War,
Cap and Natasha, you will see them with a much harder edge.
– Alright, back up Sam, you’re gonna get your wings singed.
Rhodey is coming out of Civil war,
and he lost the use of his legs.
He is a military man who understands duty and sacrifice.
The moment where he accepts Cap and Widow
and Sam when they return, is a real testament to his character and who he is.
He understands that the priority of saving the universe
outweighs the priority of petty differences.
You know, he’s a very noble character.
And he’s in becoming an integral part of the Avengers’ team.
We were really thrilled to be able to work with Doctor Strange
for the first time in Avengers: Infinity War.
And one of the things we are most excited about with that character in this film
is sort of smashing him against the character of Tony Stark.
Dr.Strange: I will not hesitate to let either of you die.
We like the fact that the two characters are kind of narcissistic
and I have an alpha energy to them,
and we thought what would… what happens when you put them in same room together.
One dedicated to his idea of science
and one dedicated to his idea of magic.
The conflict that we can result from the different points of view
so Doctor Strange played a very powerful role in Avengers: Infinity War.
As a kid, as comic book collector,
what I loved about Doctor Strange was his mystical element to him.
Dr.Strange: Certainly not I speaking to myself
He knew more than everyone else,
because of his connection to magic.
Doctor Strange is a prescient character
and the fact that he was able to view the events on folding 40 million times.
And watching them lose 40 million times is weighing heavy on his heart
and doesn’t save him at the end of the movie.
So again we wanted to show that no matter what level of power you had,
Thanos is an unstoppable force and ultimately the victory is gonna be his.
It was a great thrill for us to be able to reintroduce this character
with Tom Holland playing Spider-Man and the relationship,
the special relationship that he has with Tony Stark
Tony Stark: Kid, you’re an Avenger now.
That mentor-mentee relationship is very rich and complex.
And having cast the character as a real teen,
we really set up a very similar dynamic between Robert Downey Jr.
and Tom Holland, that’s very reflective of the characters.
Robert was very much a mentor to Tom
through the shooting process
and it’s not easy to play a superhero.
And I think Robert was very instrumental and helping Tom
find that voice in him for that character.
It was very charming how it was sort of reflective of the character relationship.
Black Panther has tremendous potential as a character in Marvel Universe.
And I think Wakanda is essential to whatever may happen post Avengers: Infinity War
to how the world may deal with,
and what is happen to them.
Chadwick portrayed that character as a whole new level to Marvel Universe.
He’s bringing it quiet and intensity and regality to that character.
The technology that Wakanda has is in exposal,
is valuable to repairing the world to moving forward.
He was a character that we love working with in Civil War.
And you see by the end of the film, is that, you know,
he rises above the fray
and he displays forgiveness, that nobility is critical,
and again something that seperates him from some of the other characters in Marvel Universe,
‘Cause that’s not always the case, that’s what makes him all unique.
Gamora is an extremely strong character.
She is a daughter of Thanos,
which means she was held captive by Thanos,
as Thanos was moving through the universe, conquering worlds.
He would collect a range of children.
She also was very special one for him.
Thanos: Here, you try.
He had a relationship with her,
unlike any he had with any of his other children,
he thought more highly of her than he thought of any of his other children.
And it’s sort of her struggle to find her own identity
and realize how to push back against Thanos,
it’s a big part of her journey.
that journey had shared with her sister, Nebula.
Like Gamora, Nebula is a child of Thanos,
not a literal child, but she has also been collected by him.
And while Nebula also finds a way to finally liberate herself from
and oppose her father,
she comes to that, part of her journey a little more slowly than Gamora does.
And there remains a lot of tension between the two characters,
revolving around the two arcs that they have to go through.
In the end, they end up both standing up against Thanos
and standing together with one another.
Loki: I, Loki, prince of Asgard.
Loki, a god of mixture, for he’s Thor brother,
is another character who began his journey as a villain.
And I think finally shows his true colors in Infinity War
when he makes an attempt to murder Thanos
to save his own brother to tragic consequences.
Vision: We need to destroy the stone.
Vision of course plays a very special role.
And in Infinity War, he is the only character who has a infinity stone
actually built into his body.
We knew that put him in a very special place in our story telling because of that.
His sort of wellbeing and safety was at stake,
if Thanos is going after the stone, so…
His relationship with Wanda was very important to us in this film
because as their romantic relationship continues to develop,
the stakes of that character and his life are… become so important to her.
Vision: Stay. Stay with me.
One of the most tragic moments of the movie,
one of our favorite moments of the movie of course,
is when she has to take his life in order to stop Thanos from getting the stone,
and by destroying the stone that’s in his head.
– 是时候了- 不！
Vision: It’s time.Wanda: No.
And to watch those two characters approach that moment
and the way that they did, really one of the most inspiring parts of this story for us.
Paul Bettany has always said
he thinks about Vision as primary motivation
is just someone who seeking to understand humanity.
And I think that with that final gesture Vision
really achieved it for humanity.
Scarlet Witch like Black Widow,
had a complicated history.
If you start off as a villain,
it’s usually, you know, you motivated by self interest.
What’s so compelling about her is that
she has become one of the most… a character that are readily
to display empathy and love towards someone else.
And her love story with Vision
was really the essential core of the film.
And the real tragedy of Infinity War was
as they were cementing their relationship with one another,
this external force injected itself,
you know, force her to make an incredibly difficult decision:
As a hero, could you kill someone you love in order to save the universe?
Maybe it’s doubly tragic too,
because of her history, the character history of having lost her brother,
certainly one of the more tragic and also in some ways,
you know, inspiring parts of the story for us.
山姆·威尔逊 也就是猎鹰 不像罗迪和提恰拉
Sam Wilson, Falcon, unlike Rhodey and T’Challa,
understands how to put the common good ahead of any self interest.
He was a military hero, came out of secret program of the Falcon project.
His super power, quote unquote, comes from his heart
and soul that makes him distinctive.
Winter Soldier, the journey that Bucky Barnes has gone on
from being Cap’s best friend, being captured by Hydra,
and then sort of experimented on by Hydra
and turned him to the Winter Soldier.
That was the heart of the conflict of Captain America, Winter Soldier
for Joe and I with the idea that Cap was in a situation
where he had to fight his best friend
and the sort of dedication to reaching that friend
that he still believed was inside the Winter Soldier
was sort of the heart of the film for us.
We get away with a lot of darkness in that character
because of the fact that his mind control even more soul
than other characters who have sort of villain in these paths,
like Scarlet Witch or Black Widow.
This character, we can push that villain even further.
That’s part of what makes the character both dangerous and fun.
let the dark magic flow through me one last…
Heimdall was the all-seeing and all-knowing gate keeper for Asgard,
at the beginning of Infinity War, sacrifices his life to
send the Hulk to earth,
so that Bruce Banner can warn everyone there about the threat of Thanos.
Okoye is the head of the Dora Milaje,
tasked with protecting the king of Wakanda, Black Panther.
And she takes her job very very seriously
and comes to the ultimate test in Avengers: Infinity War.
Then he killed everyone anyway.
伊特里 矮人族 一个
Eitri, the dwarf, is a very special
race of being to weapons’ makers
and they have served the Asgardian Kings for many millennia.
A king’s weapon.
He has skills and tools
that create weapons that are… like Thor’s hammer
– like his acts in this film that to make yeah.- Magical, yeah.
Like, he can be with the power that by frost.
所以 你能想到 他的能力让他备受尊崇
so, you know, his skill set is his revered
Wong: The Big Bang sent six elemental crystals…
Wong is great magician who compromise Dr. Strange
as a protector of Sanctum and the mystic arts.
He and Strange have a competitive and companion relationship.
And I think that’s what makes him special
is that they are better as a team than they are individually.
Kick names,take ass.
Mantis, one of the most fun members of the Guard in the Galaxy.
She’s a newer member, she has very special skills that
can reach people on emotional levels and mentally.
She’s a very pivotal role in our Avengers’ plan
to take down Thanos in the climax of the film, things go right nonetheless.
But she certainly a source of great fun.
Drax: I’ve mastered the ability
of standing so incredibly still
that I become invisible to the eye.
Drax The Destroyer, he’s born out of tragic circumstances.
His family was murdered by Thanos
as minions part of Thanos is calling of the universe.
Prior to obtain the stones, Thanos would go planet by planet,
destroy half of population of each planet indiscriminately.
He’s a character seeking revenge for his family.
But his arctic creates really interesting tonal character
there’s a time’s tragic and another time’s hilarious.
Groot, because of most people’s inability to understand him,
I think he’s a very spiritual character.
但也因为他是元素精灵 你知道的 他是一棵树
But also because he’s elemental, you know, he’s a tree.
He’s a very powerful character.
His heart is well as something that carrys him as a hero,
and it was illustrated in the first Guadian when he made that sacrifice.
In this film, even though he’s progressively going through
that adolescence again, which as a tendency to make you
a little self-interested and a little internal,
he does that at the moment when he’s needed and made the right choice,
and offers up his arm to complete the weapon
that can bring about the end of Thanos.
Rocket: How much for the gun?Winter Soldier: Not for sale.
Rocket: Ok, how much for the arm?
Rocket is a favorite in many people.
Oh, I’ll get that arm.
And he keep himself very distanced in emotional level from other characters.
And that makes him very tough to crack
and very tough to even get along with sometimes.
But that’s part of the fun of the character
figuring out ways where he can emotionally connect with someone.
And that was a favorite story line of ours in this film in Infinity War
where that special relationship that he develops with Thor.
Seeing Thor suffer, like he’s come to suffer.
The fact that he’s lost everything and everyone
finally kind of cracks.
Rocket, I think there’s a little bit of self interest in there he knows that
Thor doesn’t sort of get focused
and do the job he supposed to do.
They may all die at the hand of Thanos.
And then unless they do, form a very special relationship in this movie.
Star-Lord, we begin a new character,
he grew up under extreme circumstances,
captured by space pirates and raised by pirates
taken away from his mother who was dying for cancer in a very early age.
I think it’s made him a bit of a rogue.
星爵：“我喜欢你的计划 除了它很烂 所以让我来做吧”
I like your plan, except it sucks, so let me do the plan.
And that way, it might be really good.
Star-Lord is someone we relate to greatly,
his super powers are his wits, his passion
and his strength in character.
Again, he’s not some of these adult with
super powers outside of his heritage with his father
but his idea that, you know, he relates more to his humanity,
than he does to this “godlike” part of himself
that’s what makes him so interesting thus.
Shuri is the smartest person in the Marvel Universe.
She is the sister of T’Challa, a princess of Wakanda.
And she’s the brain behind you know Wakanda’s incrediblely advance technology.
Ayo is key member of the Dora Milaje,
I would say Okoye’s right hand, she is charge with protecting Shuri and the lab
to keep her safe while Shuri trys to remove the stone from Vision.
And she had a very memorable but brief showdown with Black Widow
and Captain America: Civil War.
Move, or you will be moved.
Nick Fury makes a very brief and unfortunate appearance in that Avengers: Infinity War.
But none of the Avengers are here without Nick Fury,
he is the life blood of the Avengers program,
and the reason that the world even had the Avengers in the first place.
Maria Hill is a SHIELD agent.
She is worked very closely with Nick Fury,
also has a brief but unfortunate appearance in Infinity War with Nick Fury.
-I might… I can’t believe how many characters is gone.-I know.
We’re the Russo brothers.
Thanks to our fans for watching, we hope we learned a lot.
Star Lord: Bingo!Rocket: Alright.
Thor: Together, we can stop Thanos.
