The Directors reveal why they chose Red Skull as the Soul Stone Keeper

The Russos managed to handle a big movie such as Infinity War with sheer responsibility. A lot was riding on this movie. This was the most important movie of the MCU so far and it was highly imperative that it be done right. One of the moments where fans leaned forward from their seats was the appearance of Red Skull. The evil nemesis of Captain America had been alive all these years and was given the role of acting as a guardian for the Soul Stone.

The Russos recently attended a special Infinity War screening and after this screening, they provided answers to some questions. As for why they chose Red Skull to be the keeper of the Soul Stone, they informed, “First of all, he had a very mystical ending at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger. He has been on a journey since then. He’s a wraith now, he’s a slave to the stones. He’s no longer the same person. He’s transcendent. He’s a ghost.”

The answer continued, “Maybe played around once or twice in it not being him, but we needed someone the audience would trust, so that when he explained the rules of how you obtain the stone, that they would believe the character.”

They were also asked if the original Red Skull, Hugo Weaving was asked to reprise his role again. “He may have. He was asked.” And they explained why they chose Vormir to be the location of the Soul Stone. “We knew that we need to do something special with that. So we knew that it also needed to have an emotional connection to the plot and to Thanos as a character. I think it was the last stone that we figured out where it was because it was the hardest story to come up with. The point where we  decided the movie was Thanos’ movie, we needed the lowest moment in the film to belong to him.”

“How could we create pain, how could we dimensionalize him so that he went on a journey in the film because if he was just this mindless villain, it was going to become a two-dimensional story.”
The directors first clarified at the event that they would not answer any questions related to the upcoming Avengers 4. So they delivered no word on the release of the trailer.

The Russos reveal why Thanos couldn't stop Stormbreaker

Infinity War had many breathtaking moments. One of them was when Thor, in his God mode, hurled his Stormbreaker towards Thanos and it turns out that event the Infinity Gauntlet could not stop the God’s weapon. It went on to pierce through the Gauntlet’s power and finally impaled Thanos’ chest. This presented a question to many fans. We couldn’t help but wonder as to why the Gauntlet couldn’t stop the Stormbreaker. The Gauntlet is supposed to be the most powerful object in the universe.

The Avengers 4 Title Mark Ruffalo gave away has been 'unbeeped' by a fan

It has been a considerable time since the Captain Marvel trailer made its way to the internet. But the title of Avengers 4 has not been yet revealed. Kevin Feigi had earlier said that we can expect the title after the Captain Marvel trailer. So, it is nigh time to break out the title of the movie. Well, it so happens that our Spoiler Man, Mark Ruffalo gave out the title of the movie in the Jimmy Fallon Show. Apparently, he was so excited that he also narrated a Hulk scene from the movie. But unfortunately, the words of Mark Ruffalo were beeped out. So we couldn’t get to know the title. The Russos responded to this behavior of Mark Ruffalo by tweeting, “Mark, you’re fired.”

Now, we all know that whole of this skit was to increase the hype for the movie. So, the alleged title Ruffalo spat during the show might not have been real at all. Nevertheless, one fan has deduced the title of the movie by ‘unbeeping’ the words of Ruffalo using some editing software. And the alleged title is – THE …
