Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely On Writing


This week, we’ve got two wonderful writers who have written several of the biggest Marvel movies to date Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. I’m a big fan of what Marvel is doing with it’s cinematic universe, and I absolutely loved “Avengers: Infinity War.” This is one Marvel movie you don’t want to miss out on. This interview is also spoiler free! So anyone can read it.

They’re most well known for having written “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Captain America: Civil War,” and most recently “Avengers: Infinity War.” And they’ve done a lot of other really cool movies too.

Here are a few questions from the interview:

How do you even go about writing a movie like this? How much is set in stone story-wise? How much freedom do you have to really play around?”

Tell me a little bit about how do you do right by these characters when there are approximately one billion of them in the movie?”

I want to go back to that thing you said about how you had two movies to play around with. However things land, this is still one movie, in that it’s coming out as one movie and people are buying tickets to one movie. Will someone who has never seen a Marvel movie before, who buys a ticket to this, then drops dead immediately and doesn’t see Avengers 4—will they have a good time?”
