Avengers: Infinity War is all the hype Avengers 4 really needs. It never hurts, however, for a director to suggest that the next installment of a franchise is even better than the last. That’s exactly what Joe Russo did over the weekend.

While speaking with Deadline about the Deadly Class series he and his brother Anthony are executive producing, Joe shared his thoughts on the film that will serve as the finale for the first 22 films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“You know, we’re very proud of it. I think ultimately Avengers 4 may be our best work for Marvel. I think we’ve grown with every movie that we’ve made there. We’ve grown with the characters. We’ve grown with the cast. As filmmakers we’re very happy and very excited with the movie.

“You know, it’s always an agenda of ours to block out the outside noise because it can lead you to make some bad choices with the material. We’ve learned over the years just to listen to ourselves, and it’s great that there’s two of us that we can have conversations with each other. We can really stay insulated and reinforce one another in our belief in the story that we’re telling. I feel like with Avengers 4, because it was made before there was any response to Avengers 3, it’s really pure in that regard. The storytelling is very pure. It’s without any sort of external noise creeping in at.”

It is hard to imagine there being much room for improvement after Avengers: Infinity War, because there really isn’t, but we can go ahead and take Joe Russo’s word for it. He and his brother have not let us down once through the three Marvel films we have seen from them.

I know I just got even more excited for Avengers 4!
