The Russo Brothers reveal Avengers: Infinity War is told from Thanos' point of view

The Russo Brothers have revealed more details about Avengers: Infinity War. 

The movie features an enormous cast that sees the stars of Doctor Strange, Guardians Of The Galaxy and Ant-Man uniting with the current Avengers line-up for a new outing and the showdown with supervillain Thanos. 

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, the men responsible for the previous two Captain America films, the movie is Marvel's most expensive to date, with it and its sequel expected to cost over $1 billion to produce. 

Speaking to Fandango, the directors, when asked which characters will get the most screen time, that villain Thanos and Thor will get the most time and that the film is actually from the villain's point of view. 

Joe Russo said: "Thanos has an incredible amount of screen time in this film, in a lot of ways I would say it's his movie. Our job when we make these films — and what we feel is important to us — is to surprise the audience. We wanted to tell a story that they weren't expecting, and the story is told from the point of view of a villain, which I think is also really unique and risky for a commercial film that will surprise the audience."

He continued: "I think this is a market where the audience really enjoys innovation and disruption, and we want to do something innovative in this space. So I think Thanos has an incredible amount of screen time, and I think you'll find that Thor has a really interesting arc in the film. He hasn't been at the forefront of other Avengers movies but he certainly has a very important role in this film. So I'll say, Thanos and Thor."

Avengers: Infinity War will be released on April 27th in UK cinemas.
