The premiere of Avengers: Infinity War is finally less than two weeks away and we’re more nervous, but also excited, than ever before. The film is going to make a huge impact on fans of the MCU and the comic book film genre in general.
It’s setting a standard while blending together some of the best superhero stories of all time and doing so with an all-star cast. We already know that we’ll laugh and we’ll cry and we’ll see it an embarrassing number of times in theaters.
We also know that Avengers 4 is following Avengers: Infinity War. Hitting theaters in 2019, the movie is the follow up to Infinity War, but we won’t know much about it anytime soon. In fact, even knowing the title isn’t something fans should count on soon.
When asked, Joe Russo said it’ll be some time before people see the title for Avengers 4.
‘It’s going to be quite a long while before people see that title. We need people to see this movie, digest this movie, and then we can tell them what the next story is they’re going to see.’
At first, the film was simply going to be titled Avengers: Infinity War Part Two but the movie is its own entity. It’s going to be a much different film.
‘It’s a complete story. It’s got a beginning, middle and an end and the next movie has a beginning, middle and an end, in the same way, that Civil War handed off to Infinity War and Infinity War will hand off to the next movie.
If you were worried that Infinity War may end with a cliffhanger, fear not. The Russo brothers both discussed how they don’t enjoy that in a cinematic experience themselves. Anthony began by saying that the films are connected, but not the same.
‘It’s serialized storytelling without question so there is going to be a correlation, narratively, but we really wanted to make two distinct movies. We weren’t interested in making one long film and getting out the scissors and cutting the scissors and cutting it in half.
Joe added the following.
‘We don’t find that a satisfying cinematic experience so this is a complete story, that’s a complete story, and they’re very different movies.”
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on April 27th.
