The directors of Avengers: Infinity War, Anthony and Joe Russo, have revealed that Captain America and Black Widow will demonstrate a “harder edge” in Avengers 4.
While some fans might have been hoping to see a little more of Captain America and Black Widow in Avengers: Infinity War – something that was difficult thanks to the massive cast involved – there’s no denying that the two were depicted as the grizzled veterans that they are.
This trend is set to continue in Avengers 4 and the Russos have told Wired that the two characters will be even tougher when the time comes: “In Winter Soldier, what we found so compelling about pairing [Black Widow] up with Captain America was that he is a service paragon of morality and she is a paragon of gray,” said Joe Russo. “But they’ve grown together and I think when you find them in this movie and they’ve been the Secret Avengers for two years because they’re being hunted by Ross and the government, they’re like a tight-knit family now — her, Sam Wilson, and Steve Rogers.
“It’s hardened all of them in a way. You can’t go on the run without it affecting you emotionally, so I think all of those characters — specifically the ones who survived Infinity War, Cap and Natasha — you will see them with a much much harder edge.”
Thanks to the mass casualty list as a result of Infinity War, fans will certainly be expecting to see way more of the two once Avengers 4 rolls around. Are you excited to see an even scrappier Avengers team?
