Meanwhile several set visit reports from the film have gone online this week, with the most interesting comments being about how the events of the movie will have big ramifications for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel Studios president of production Kevin Feige tells /Film:
“It is smack dab between Avengers and Avengers 2. It takes place after both Thor and Iron Man. So it’s sort of the continuity of the release of the film is the continuity of the film as well. Which was sort of the case with the first phase one films but it was a little trickier. But this very much, you know, the ramifications at the end of this film go directly into Avengers 2. Much more so than the other films.”
Co-director Joe Russo, who also worked on the script with his brother Anthony, says the ending was already in place before they got involved and while they did make script changes, they didn’t tinker with that third act much:
“They had a really excellent construct to the script that was really sound, where it was going, a very big idea that they’re exploring in the third act of this movie. It’s a sort of, you know, monumental idea for the MCU…. it impacts everything. That has always been there. So it was easier to do the script work because it had such a clear spine to it, such a strong spine.”
