When does a TV cast get too big? buff.ly/2NnI0Oz
The next two Avengers movies aren’t quite as connected it seems as we once thought.
The next two Avengers films are being released only a year apart, and for some time we thought they would be called Avengers: Infinity War Part I and Part II, but it seems that plan has changed. Speaking with IGN, Marvel President Kevin Feige cleared up that the two films have distinct stories.
There’s a reason we have publicly called the first one ‘Infinity War’ and the second one ‘Untitled,’ because the movies we were developing were not – certainly there’s a connection, there are with all our movies – but it’s not a first part and a second part. It’s a whole movie and a whole story, and then a whole movie and a whole story. That’s about all I can say. It’s certainly inspired by everything that has come before and everything that is hinted at before.
We will be intercutting a lot of stories in that movie in a lot of different locales, as it sort of is in the Avengers movies as well; who is facing off against who. In this movie, it’s going to be fun to mix that up. One of the things that’s great about the Infinity Gauntlet is everybody tried to go up against Thanos whether they were god-like powers or not, because that’s what Avengers do. The fun about those two movies that we’re doing essentially at the same time is everybody’s there.
Filming the two films concurrently makes sense to me. The cast is becoming more in demand, and I’m sure it’s getting more difficult to get them together. These films represent the end of a lot of their contracts, so there is sure to be some behind-the-scenes wrangling going on.
Seeing as Feige said “everybody,” the question of course came up if that includes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist from the various Netflix series. Feige simply responded with “Spoilers!”
… stop teasing us. Just throw them in via reaction shots and be done with it. It’s going to be silly if they aren’t there.
The next two Avengers film release on May 4, 2018 and May 3, 2019 respectively.
