Joe Russo's Brilliant Analogy About Giving Marvel Fans 'Too Much Chocolate Ice Cream' On The Set Of 'The Winter Soldier' Hits Home 10 Years Later

  • 20 days ago
As a Marvel fan, the beliefs that everything is good in moderation and that it’s possible to have too much of a good thing have been hitting a bit harder these days. Superhero fatigue is plaguing many MCU fans, myself included, and sometimes it feels like we’re watching the same thing tonally over and over. Well, now some comments Joe Russo made on the set of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" have re-emerged a decade after the movie's release where he gave an analogy that related Marvel movies to eating too much chocolate ice cream. And I have to admit, his words are still very relevant all these years later.

If you’ve seen the Marvel movies in order, there’s no question that "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is ranked as one of the best MCU projects. Bringing the energy of a ‘70s spy thriller into this world of superheroes, directors Joe and Anthony Russo made a wholly unique superhero movie that felt different and new. Speaking to this point ten years ago on the set of the beloved film, Joe Russo told Total Film that they wanted to change things up because they felt it was important to add a new tone and voice into this growing superhero world.
