AVENGERS 4 is Said To Finish a "Very Personal" Story Arc That Began in THE WINTER SOLDIER
The Russo Bros. offer us another little hint at one of the long-running story arcs that began in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and will continue and conclude in Avengers 4. Avengers 4 will be the fourth Marvel film for the directors and in a recent interview, they explain that fans will see a conclusion to that long-running story of Captain America in Avengers 4. In an interview with Andy McCarrroll Movies, Joe Russo said:
"For us, this was the challenge of telling the story but also completing the personal journey that we started as storytellers in Winter Soldier. So the story that began in Winter Soldier and that ends in Avengers 4 is a, there's a very personal arc there for us. I think you'll understand our point of view as filmmakers and who we are as people when you watch all four of those movies together."
When talking about working with the Captain America character in The Winter Soldier, Anthony Russo previously talked about trusting their instincts:
"Yes, that was a revelation for us, to be honest with you, because we didn’t know going into Winter Soldier. We knew why we wanted to make the movie. We knew what we loved about the character. We knew where we wanted to take it and what we wanted to do with that movie. But we didn’t know how anybody else in the world would respond. So, having the movie received like that was a validation for Joe and me that we should just stick with our instincts and our passion for the material and run with that. And hopefully, that’s what’s going to translate to audiences."
The Captain America films have certainly been some of the best and strongest films in the MCU, and a lot of fans, like myself, seem confident that Captain America will bite the dust in Avengers: Infinity War. Fans have been expecting to see Cap killed off for a long time, and at this point, it will be more of a surprise if he actually survives!
Captain America is my favorite character in the MCU and I'm excited to see how the Russo's end up wrapping up his story over the course of these next two Avengers films. My question to you is, do you think he will die at the hands of Thanos, or do you think he'll go out in a very different and unexpected way?
