Both Avengers: Infinity War films will be retitled
Last year, Kevin Feige announced the full Marvel Phase Three slate, and revealed it would be capped off by Avengers: Infinity War Part II . Since then, we’ve learned a little more about the two films, like how many characters will be appearing, but one thing that directors Anthony and Joe Russo previously said of the films that stands out is that the two parts are “very very different from one another.” That in mind, the pair have now confirmed to Uproxx that the films won’t be released under the “Part I” and “Part II” subheadings, but will be given all-new titles.
“The intention is we will change it,” Joe Russo said. “We just haven’t come up with the titles yet. But, yes, we will change it. And, yes, that is a scoop: we will retitle them.”
A number of Marvel crossover comics have not only used the “Infinity” namesake but also included the villain Thanos, such as Infinity Gauntlet, Infinity Crusade, Infinity Abyss, and simply Infinity. Any of these could prove to be the title of one of the films, but what those titles will be remain unconfirmed. Check back here for when Marvel officially announces them!
Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely will pen the scripts for the two features which directors Anthony and Joe Russo will film entirely in IMAX. Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 is slated for release in theaters on May 4, 2018; Part 2 will open on May 3, 2019.
