Here’s How Rajinikanth’s ‘Robot’ Inspired ‘Avengers’
After directing Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, the Russo brothers are now all set to lift the curtains off Avengers: Endgame. During their recent promotional outing in Mumbai, I spoke to the younger Russo brother about the supposed departure of Iron Man and Captain America post Endgame, but got no answer. However, he did tell me a little about how Rajinikanth’s Robot played its own role in influencing the cult film:
“Robot almost influenced the climactic moments in Avengers: Age of Ultron. So, you know in Robot where all the robots come together and form the snake? So, there was a moment when all the ultrons in Ultron come together to form a large ultron and the Avengers had to fight that and that was inspired directly by that sequence in Robot.”
So, all those memes were indeed true, Rajinikanth did influence the Avengers.
