In an article published on the website Uproxx , Joe and Anthony Russo revealed some important information about their upcoming blockbusters, Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 which are due out in 2018 and 2019, respectively.
When asked about the numbered titles, Joe revealed this; ““The movies are two very different movies,” Joe went on the announce ““The intention is we will change it, we just haven’t come up with the titles yet. But, yes, we will change it. And, yes, that is a scoop: we will re-title them.”
An interesting reveal here is that the – in Joe’s words – movies are very different movies. This is a departure from current perception that part two will be an extension of part one, one massive story broken up in to two parts. But with this announcement and the revelation that the movies will most certainly be titled in the near future, we have to stop and ask ourselves what this story will indeed be about?
These two movies, by Marvel Studios, are set to be the most ambitious undertaking so far by Marvel Studios. The movie will potentially include the Avengers team (or teams depending on how Civil War goes…), Spider-man, the meta-villain Thanos, the currently absent Hulk as well as the rumored inclusion of the Guardians of the Galaxy and a plethora of other characters, even ancillary characters in the cinematic universe such as Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster. A prevailing rumor is that the stars of Marvel’s television series might make appearances as well. Avengers: Infinity War will be the ending of Marvel’s Phase 3 plans and will set the tone for phase 4. The movies will be the culmination of a decades-long story carried through all the Marvel movies to date. Additionally, they will be shot in a revolutionary format on an IMAX/ARRI Digital camera.
When the new titles are revealed as well as further information about the plot for both movies unfold, we will be paying close attention. If the movies are truly unique and stand alone as separate films, it will be a large departure from how we are viewing them today. Stay tuned for developing information.
