And that was always my (experience), ‘It’s Marvel, we could shoot forever.’ And they’re like, ‘Nah.’ So it was a very different experience from the rest of the movies. But at the same time, it was a lot of fun.'We’re shooting it exactly like a movie.Everybody who had worked on TV before was like, ‘I’ve never worked on a TV show like this.’ The way in which we were shooting, it feels exactly like we were shooting the movie cut up into the show. So instead of a two-hour movie, a six or eight-hour movie, ' he added.The show is a culmination of six episodes and revolves around a conflict between the lead heroes and the evil organization Hydra.
