With Avengers: Infinity War set to release next month and the Russo brothers on board to also direct the Avengers 4 coming next summer, it has been on our mind how these two movies will fit together. Marvel Studios confirmed plans months before Avengers: Age of Ultron by Josh Whedon, was released, that there would be a two-part film as of May of 2018 and summer of 2019.
That being said, both Avengers: Infinity War and the now untitled Avengers 4 were filmed back to back in 2017 which is a first for Marvel Studios, although the Russo brothers say the films names just don’t work with part 1 and part 2 in them. Screen Rant was on the set of Infinity Wars and was able to discuss the back-to-back filming even with both films being so unique. Joe Russo, the co-director of the films, had no issue speaking on the approach they had in hand.
“Our approach has always been … we look at the process, as with Marcus and McFeely, it’s simply the same thing in the way that The Winter Soldier relates to Civil War, and the way that Civil War relates to Infinity War. These two movies will also relate. There’s a narrative thread that is connecting these films, but at the same time, there’s an independence in terms of what the experience is or where the story goes. It isn’t a true two-parter, and I think the two-parter concept came back when Marvel decided they were going to culminate the MCU, it was going to be a two-movie deal. But as we developed the movie, in execution, it ended up being more of two singular expressions. And I think that just what happened.”
This has fans curious on how the two films will connect through the narrative and as this happens we can watch the Marvel Cinematic Universe story come to its brilliant and creative end. Infinity War’s narrative is mostly about Thanos and his Infinity Gems so with Avengers 4 we could be whiteness to a much more serious battle or end of the world war. These movies seem to have almost every character in them which leads us to believe that a huge all out brawl is in the works; just what film will host it!
Regardless the difference of the two films, we see fans sitting at the edge of their seats to be whiteness to the biggest event in MCU history starting April 27th with Infinity Wars release date, and the unknown release of the MCU marathon put on by AMC Theatres.
What hopes do you have for similarities in these films? Are you excited for both movies to be their own unique stories rather than Part 1 and Part 2? Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments!
