Avengers: Infinity War doesn't give you time to breathe. It doesn't care if you've seen the previous Marvel movies. It just takes off and never lets up. However, in a new interview, the film's writers revealed that pace wasn't always what they intended for their script - and it led to some complications.
The Russo Brothers, directors of Captain America: Civil War as well as Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel, just purchased the rights to The Electric State, an illustrated novel by Simon Stålenhag.
