Avengers: Infinity Wars will feature some unusual frienships

If new reports from Screenrant can be believed, it appears that Hulk is going to have a brand new friend in”Avengers: Infinity War”. It appears the green rage monster is going to become buddies with the furry raccoon looking rage monster in Rocket.

Excitement over the Marvel movie universe is ramping up thanks to “Thor: Ragnarok” being right around the corner. That excitement has led to more news about an upcoming movie, that’s still months away. Mark Ruffalo was recently talking about the continued evolution in the Marvel comics tales. Thor: Ragnarok showed a bit of a change in the way the character interacts with his teammates. The fact that there is even an understanding that he has teammates is something quite different for the Hulk.

Mark Ruffalo recently talked about how the green giant will find himself interacting with Rocket in a way that should be quite endearing to fans of the comic book franchise. “It’s a very funny relationship that the two of them have: First of all, it’s the biggest superhero and the smallest. Just keeping them in a frame together is a feat and hilarious in itself.”

One of the reasons the two might become an interesting pairing is because they have something in common when it comes to simply making the film. They are both done using CGI. That might make it easier to have them onscreen together the way Rocket and Groot have been paired up in Guardians of the Galaxy movies. The two are also similar in temperament. This could lead to rather hilarious hijinks. Members of the Marvel movies are quick to point out that while there has been comic relief in their movies, that never takes away from the overall enjoyment of those films. For now we’ll have to take Mark Ruffalo’s word for what it will look like, but we won’t have to wait that long to see the two on screen together in “Avengers: Infinity War.”

What Tension Exists In Avengers: Infinity War?

One thing that helped set Marvel Comics apart from D.C. Comics in the 1960’s was the tension between heroes. Heroes even outright fought with one another. While not perfect, Marvel characters showed a humanity the more traditional D.C. heroes lacked. In the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War film, the heroes bring more tension to the big screen. Doing so definitely can help the drama of the narrative.

Paul Bettany, the actor who brought The Vision to life on the screen, recently commented on the heightened tension between heroes. The commentary noted the heroes may have their differences, but they do come together for the greater good. That “greater good” would be defeating the all-powerful Thanos, one of Marvel Comics’ most ultra-formidable villains.

Therein lies one of the most important morality tales of superhero adventures. Ultimately, the goal is to serve the greater good for all humanity. In some cases, serving the greater good actually preserves humanity. Thanos doesn’t exactly have humanity’s best interests at heart. Thanos wishes to rule and conquer. Without The Avengers standing in his way, rule and conquer he shall.

All of this does come with the potential to be very boring if no conflict exists between the heroic characters. Heroes lacking conflict with one another end up acting in a very boring and predictable manner. Audiences can become supremely bored when characters never deviate from a by-the-numbers approach to interactions.

The writers, actors, and directors associated with the Marvel Cinematic Universe realize this. That’s why a good bit of tension and conflict is welcomed in the films.
