Iron Man. Captain America. Thor. Hulk. Black Widow. Winter Soldier. Black Panther. Starlord. Gamora. Loki. Groot. Rocket. Drax. Spider Man. Doctor Strange. Vision. Falcon. War Machine. Ant-Man.

That is a lot of characters to include, without the addition of the new ones, such as big bad guy Thanos, but the one question that appears to be on EVERYONE’S lips is just where in the heck is Hawkeye?

So that is the question we had to ask when we had the chance to sit down with The Russo Brothers, the two people tasked with directing what is ultimately the end-game for a decade of Marvel movies, Avengers: Infinity War.

They’ve previously directed Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War, so they know their way around the characters, as well as putting together some fantastic action set-pieces.

They also chatted about Tom Vaughn-Lawlor playing a new villain in the mix, how Peter Dinklage folds into the mix of the movie, and why they describe Infinity War as “a smash-and-grab heist film”.

Check out the full interview right here:

Keep an eye on JOE in the coming days, as we also had the opportunity to sit down and chat with Vision (Paul Bettany) and Scarlet Witch (Elisabeth Olsen) and got as much info as we possibly could on what will undoubtedly be the biggest movie of 2018.

Meanwhile, Avengers: Infinity War explodes into cinemas from Thursday 26 April, and in case you’ve missed it, here is the latest trailer:
