Recently we have learned the final title for one of the most anticipated comic book movies; the first part of the third Avengers installment to the MCU is going to be titled Avengers: Infinity War while the second part will not include the Infinity War portion. This has been said to have been done because each part is very different from the other.
Further back we learned that the two films will be shot simultaneously and it seems like that same thought process is being carried over to the script writing. In an interview with Yahoo, screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen Mcfeely confirmed that they are writing the two scripts at the same time. They also had this to say when they were asked about how they decided who/ how many characters to include in the films:
McFeely: “Our deal was, when we lock ourselves in a room with the Russo brothers, and a couple of execs from Marvel, one wall was movie one cards and one wall was movie two, and one wall was little baseball cards with every character still alive in the Marvel universe.”
Markus: “Down to Darcy’s boyfriend from Thor 2. Like just anyone who did not die and has been established as alive, and then went- [pretends to move cards around on a board].”
Sounds like they have a lot of sorting to do if they being that tedious with the characters. Perhaps we will see the return of smaller roles from the MCU’s past. The internet went insane when the rumor was floating around about the inclusion of a literal 67 appearances, but I’m willing to bet that number isn’t too far off (perhaps split between the two movies). Depending on just how different each movie is we could see an almost totally new cast for the second one as opposed to the first one. This is all speculation at this point and we’ll just have to wait for updates, so stay tuned!
What do you guys think? How do you think the movies will differ? Is there anyone who you know/think is still alive from past films that you want to appear again? Let us know in the comments as well as on our Twitter and Instagram!
