Joe Russo visited India in April 2019 to promote Endgame. One of the highlights of his trip was when he was served a huge Indian thali with the dishes presented in the shape of a capital A referencing to the Avengers logo. Before his arrival, he had expressed his excitement saying, "I am absolutely thrilled with the passionate response Avengers: Infinity War received in India, and cannot wait for you to see Avengers: Endgame. Thank you for embracing these movies. I am excited to be coming to India and eager to meet our Indian fans very soon."
On his press tour for Endgame, Russo had picked India as the first stop stating that both the Russo brothers had been impressed by the response Infinity War received in India and were waiting since then to visit India which they claimed they had heard a lot about beforehand as well.
During his trip here, he also revealed that Marvel was getting in touch with Priyanka Chopra for a project to introduce Indian characters in the MCU. He said, "I don’t run Marvel, but I can say that storytelling is becoming diverse. That’s the future of Marvel. The reason I am here is that the audience from across the world has reacted to us. I am certain that different cultures will start seeing themselves represented on screen and will start identifying with characters on screen."Read More
