The next two Avengers movies will be the culmination of everything the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has done so far. Assemble a huge cast, with plot points said to change the entire course of the MCU
Of course, with years so far in advance, things can change, as is the case with the fourth Avengers movie, which was originally titled Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2. The Russo brothers were hired to direct both Infinity War – part 1 and part 2, after their excellent effort with Captain America: The Winter Solider. Both parts were due to film simultaneously, in order to accommodate the huge ensemble cast.
However, last month we got word that due to a shift in narrative, Infinity War – Part 2 would now be going ahead under a different title. For the time, the fourth Avengers movie would be untitled.
The reason for the name change was that screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely simply felt that the name no longer suited the narrative that they were creating. Speaking to CinemaBlend, one half of the Russo brothers (Joe), gave more insight into the change:
“We wanted the movie to be very different and distinctive, you know. There’s certainly cross-pollination between characters and some story arcs, but you know, the first movie is very clearly Avengers: Infinity War and, in time, we will reveal what the second film is.”
When questioned further about the plot of the fourth Avengers movie, Joe responded by saying, “You’ll learn that, but not for quite some time.” It’s possible the new title gives away plot points for Infinity War so we may have to wait until after it’s 2018 release until we get a new title confirmed.
Both movies are still due to film at the same time, and they’re said to initiate a seismic shift within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which will change all of the Marvel ‘phases’ to come.
Speaking to Screen Rant, Vin Diesel also announced that the Guardians of the Galaxy will appear in the upcoming movie, stating:
“Now, the Guardians will be included in Avengers: Infinity War and that’s incredibly exciting,”
