Ep 80: Can the writers of Avengers 4 deliver with THAT much hype? Infinity War theories & the weight of expectation

September 13, 2018

After 10 years, 20 movies, and becoming the benchmark for blockbuster movies in the 21st Century, the MCU has become so much more than just a franchise.

After a raft of the franchise's best movies with Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, and the beginning of the end in Avengers: Infinity War 1, there is a lot resting on the back of screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely with Avengers 4 (Infinity War 2).

In this episode, we discuss the difficulties and excitement of writing on that scale and with so many expectations. Plus, we work through our favourite fan theories and ask whether whatever Avengers 4 gives us, will ever be enough?

We also chat about Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events S2 and why sci-fi by it’s very nature has become renowned for breaking new writing ground.
