Avengers: Infinity War will bring together most all of the Marvel family that has a place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This means that some of the actors who are used to working with a certain director may have to adjust during the crossover. Sean Gunn (director James Gunn’s brother), who plays Kraglin in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, shifted over to Avengers: Infinity War to take on the motion capture for Rocket Racoon (it’s unclear whether or not Kraglin will play a role in the film — though if the rest of the Guardians are, it’s highly likely). Gunn spoke with ComicBook.com about how it is for actors to adjust to different directors.
“All directors have a little bit of a different style, and their own method of working. When you’re working with a director, or directors, for the first time, you have to sort of establish that working relationship. I don’t need to do that obviously when I work with my brother [James Gunn] because we’ve worked together for so long. The Russos are different, but I can tell you’re they’re great. I can tell you I love working with them, and I think I also identified with the idea of working with my brother as something that they do all the time, just like my brother and I do. I really enjoyed working with them, but the style’s different. No director is like any other exactly.”
From what Sean Gunn says, it sounds like he had no problem adjusting to the Russo brothers directing style. Working with his own brother James Gunn for so long likely eased his adjustment to the style of the Russo brothers. Cinema, like other forms of art has many different methods of being made. The Russo brothers and Sean’s brother, James, have, in my opinion, brought us fans some of the best Marvel movies, and have recently been at the core of directing for the MCU. Guardians of the Galaxy is my favorite Marvel franchise, and it is going to be great to see that cast work with the directors that brought us two of the three Captain America movies. Avengers: Infinity War is going to be the biggest Marvel movie to date, with a total of 67 characters in the film and a reported 32 in one scene alone.
