Marvel film editor ‘Cornerstone of MCU’
In a rare moment a feature film editor is given credit for their creative contributions. In a video in which the directors of various Marvel films – including the two most recent Avengers movies – the Russo brothers talks about Jeffrey Ford, one of their editors.
