Watch the Infinity War Directors Dissect the Thor and Guardians of the Galaxy Scene

In Vanity Fair’s latest “Notes on a Scene” video, Avengers: Infinity War directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo offer a break down of the hilarious first meeting between the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and the Guardians of the Galaxy. The directors discuss adjusting their shooting style to “accomodate all of the different tones” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, giving specific examples of color, lighting and framing choices that they made to convey information in each scene and how “emotional realism” is the one “constant” in their Marvel movies.

Avengers: Infinity War was written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. The super cast includes Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Sebastian Stan as Winter Soldier, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Paul Bettany as Vision, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Tom Holland as Spider-Man, Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Don Cheadle as War Machine, Cobie Smulders as Mariah Hill, Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange, Benedict Wong as Wong, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket Racoon, Pom Klementieff as Mantis and Benicio del Toro as the Collector.
