Marvel Directors At D23: Alan Taylor Still Filming New Scenes And The Russo Brothers Are Happy With The Rough Cut
The post Marvel D23 presentation interviews are still rolling out. The actual presentation was a little lackluster, but the interviews after two new clips for Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier were shown have been great. The latest batch of interviews feature the directors. Thor helmer Alan Taylor and the Captain America directing duo of Joe and Anthony Russo spoke with the good folks over at Collider about where they’re at with their respective flicks.
There had been some rumors circulating that Alan Taylor got into a bit of a spat with Marvel and might be made to take a backseat when press started up for the film. The dispute was allegedly over how long the film’s final cut would be. Taylor brought the rumors up in his interview, and is pretty open and honest when addressing them. He reveals that there isn’t any fuss over the film’s length, but he did get into a minor disagreement over who the film’s composer would be. He also reveals that he is filming a few more scenes for the film to pad certain plot and character points. It’s a little odd that they’re still filming new scenes for a movie that comes out in November, but Marvel usually works on their films up until the final hour.
The Russo Brothers say that filming for Cap has wrapped and now they’re going to roll up their sleeves and get to work in the editing room. Joe Russo, the more talkative of the brothers, says that they won’t say how long the film could be but they’ll probably only have to cut about 10 minutes of footage. They wouldn’t say whether or not they had filmed the after-credits scene for the film, but their body language makes it seem like they probably have.
