Hoe exciting! The first female Executive Producer in the Marvel Universe, Trinh Tran!
We jumped right in and asked ho she dealt with the response to the end of Infinity War. Have you people just destroyed and ended the Marvel Universe!
“I was really nervous about how everybody was going to respond to the ending and it actually feels really weird because I can’t believe I can actually talk about it now. For the longest time, even during the Press tour, we couldn’t say anything and for 2 years, we had to keep our mouths mum about all the spoilers so this is actually one of my very first few times actually being able to talk about it and be open about it. Sometimes I’m going to be hesitant because I’m still used to the fact that can I say that? Wait a minute, the movie is out. But I think it’s just everybody just embracing which is really shocking and great because a lot of people, their fan favorites didn’t make it, whether it was, Peter Parker or Quill but whomever it is, they didn’t survive the ending and I think that the shock is that the bad guy won. So I think it was, just seeing that the audience was OK with it was really weird.”
It had been a few months and we were surprised to hear that Trinh was first talking about this material!
Trinh chatted about how hard everyone worked on the film, and how she was there from day one: the ideas started flowing when they were finishing up shooting Civil War.
“We came back and we were in the story room with Joe, Anthony, Steven, and Chris, our writers, and we started just hashing out ideas so being a part of that creative process and sitting together with the Writers and Directors and coming up with the beats and ideas and then just really taking it all the way through shooting and you know, being in Atlanta for a year and a half, that was the longest time I’ve ever been away from LA.”
The grueling work and late hours, the working through holidays and weekends, it was exactly the intense process you were expecting from producing this movie.
We were all right there with Trinh when she answered the question, who was the character that you would have hoped to see live! Poor Peter Parker, the young lad, the protégé of Tony Stark. The youngest super hero told us he didn’t want to die, and we were all heart broken!
Trinh talked about being female and a minority, and how she had to work on herself to accept the responsibility she had been given. Clearly Kevin Feige trusted her, so it was up to Trinh:
“I think it’s so important that I embrace it and I’m learning that every day too is that it’s OK to be in a room, and sometimes, you know, I am among all males who some of them have over 20 years of experience and I’m sitting there and sometimes I feel a little intimidated. And it’s like do I speak up? No I can’t but it’s all about if you let your perspective shine, there’s a great story that can we can all agree will be great.”
This was one of the most interesting interviews I have participated in. Listening to the process of producing a Marvel movie, in fact, the biggest Marvel movie with almost every star from every preceding blockbuster, was fascinating. And hearing it from Trinh and listening to her share her personal journey with the movie was a gift!

And an Infinity Gauntlet that I made where we were interviewing Trinh Tran, in Madame Tussaud’s Hollywood!
They have an entire room devoted to the Marvel Universe, it was a ton of fun for all of us bloggers!
And making our own Infinity Gauntlet was the icing on the cake! And by icing I mean dipping my hand in ice cold water and hot wax in an alternating fashion!
