****THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR****
Avengers: Infinity War was all over the place, in a good way. With the movie having such a sense of panic, not all issues previously established in the Marvel Cinematic Universe were dealt with. One of the bigger issues was the aftermath of Civil War for Tony Stark and Steve Rogers. Stephen McFeely, one of the writers of the film, recently spoke with Yahoo! Movies, and discussed the reasons why this was overlooked.
“Our first sort of wonky draft [had] the idea that they had to get back in the same room together and deal with that. [But it] meant that you’re slowing down your Thanos [Infinity] Stones [quest] to deal with other threats from other movies. And that became, as much as we wanted to do, and as many times as we wrote those scenes, it became clear that this movie needed to be propulsive and be about Thanos and what he represented to the Avengers.”
I get this, as I said earlier there was a panic throughout the film, a feeling of urgency that couldn’t be ignored. The issue needs to be dealt with but with everything going on in Infinity War, it likely would have disrupted the pace of the film. Not addressing it also shows that there were far more important issues to address. Now that half the population of the universe has been erased, maybe Tony and Cap will get a few minutes to bury the hatchet in Avengers 4.
