Disney has confirmed that it will make only one “Avengers: Infinity” movie rather than the two it had announced previously.
Disney announced on Friday that it would be changing its release schedule slightly. Instead of having the second Avengers movie directed by the Russo brothers, Infinity War - Part 2, be a continuation of the first Infinity War film, it will act as a stand-alone project instead.
According to The Wrap, the movie is now being slated as an "Untitled Avengers" film, with the first part still on the schedule as Avengers: Infinity War. The decision to not have the second part act as a continuation raises a couple of questions about the Avengers cast. Specifically, if Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans and the rest of the original superhero team will be around for the new film or if the untitled movie will usher in the second and third phase of characters being introduced now.
Production of “Avengers: Infinity War” is expected to begin later this year. The Russos are directing from a script by the writing team of Christopher Marcus and Stephen McFeely with a back story based on immensely powerful Infinity Gems described in various Marvel stories.
Avengers: Infinity War is scheduled to be released on May 4, 2018 with the second, now untitled Avengers movie, still slated to hit theaters on May 3, 2019. Doctor Strange opens November 4, 2016; Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – May 5, 2017; Spider-Man: Homecoming – July 7, 2017; Thor: Ragnarok – November 3, 2017; Black Panther – February 16, 2018; Avengers: Infinity War – May 4, 2018; Ant-Man and the Wasp – July 6, 2018; Captain Marvel– March 8, 2019; Untitled Avengers – May 3, 2019; and as-yet untitled Marvel movies on July 12, 2019, and on May 1, July 10, and November 6 in 2020.
