Could The Avengers Welcome Audiences Back to Theaters?
Theaters have been closed for months all over the country due to COVID-19. Many, many big box office movies’ release dates have been delayed, including Disney’s Mulan and Marvel’s Black Widow. But, with release dates pushed back far into the summer and fall, what will audiences see as theaters begin to re-open. The Russo brothers have an idea.
Joe and Anthony Russo are the masterminds behind Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. The brothers stopped by the ReelBlend podcast to talk about their new Netflix movie, Extraction starring Chris Hemsworth (Thor). Here is what they had to say:
“The theatrical experience is a community experience. Perhaps the most touching moment of our entire careers was a few weeks ago when the lockdown started, and Endgame was trending on social media because everyone was posting videos of opening-night screenings in their theaters with audiences really emotionally connected to the material.
For us, that’s really the strength of the theatrical experience is that it combines audiences, and it combines you globally. To have been a part of movies that did that, on that scale with that level of emotional connection from the audience, was really very touching, and will be the highlight of our careers. So, using those films to get people back into the theaters? We would be ecstatic. I mean, any opportunity for people to go back and share in those stories together is one that we would support.” (Cinemablend.com)
How incredible would it be to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Avengers: Endgame with a re-opening of theaters and the movie back on the big screen. And, if the Russos are willing to release their films, I’m sure audiences would be willing to fill the theaters and watch The Avengers be Thanos once again.
