Avengers: Infinity War is such an exciting, complicated movie that a year later new news about its production comes as a surprise and delight to me.
Like this one, for example, from Winston Duke. When you talked recently with Metro, Duke shares how, when Black Panther casting arrived at the set Avengers: Infinity War the Russian brothers showed their experience of the Wakanda attitude and atmosphere to help to create the Wakanda sequences for the movie.
"We went on the set and they said," We were not part of Black Panther we do not know this as deep as you do, we trust you to bring what you want this and we take a back seat, says Duke.
Duke continued to explain how it worked in practice. "I learned some of the chants of the guys on the set, some of them were new additions that were part of the tribe, and I learned a bit of the language and words of other people, and Danai did the same," he explained. "We got a lot of freedom to just bend and do what we did, create a world and make Wakanda feel washed in a movie that wasn't even really about it." The Wakanda sequence in ] Infinity War felt different from the rest of the film, and for many viewers it was undoubtedly a highlight. It can go a long way to explain why: When they encountered material that the Russians were not experts on, they stepped aside and shot up to the skills of their throw and crew. Regardless of your feelings about Infinity War it's the right way to make a movie.
