Did you know that Rajinikanth's Robot scene influenced Avengers: Age of Ultron?
Filmmaker Joe Russo, who has directed four Marvel Cinematic Universe movies - Avengers: Endgame, Avengers: Infinity War, Captain America: Civil War and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, is in India as a part of the upcoming Marvel film promotions.
In the press conference held in Mumbai, Russo reportedly said that India is a potential market for not only Hollywood but also the record-breaking MCU. He said, “India is incredibly important. It’s the fastest growing market in the world for Marvel.”
He also reportedly said that Rajinikanth-starrer Robot came very close to influencing a previous Marvel movie. “Interesting story, that I think will be a really good headline tomorrow is that Robot almost influenced the climactic moment in Avengers: Age of Ultron.” He further added, "So you know, in Robot, where all the robots form a snake? All the Ultrons in Ultron came together to form a large Ultron, but it had to get cut for time.”
Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and others. The film is scheduled for an April 26 release in India, in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
