Is Avengers 4 Going To Be The Part Two Of Avengers: Infinity War?
Needless to say, there are going to be spoilers in the following article, so turn back now if you want to head into Avengers: Infinity War knowing nothing at all.
There are a number of unsolved mysteries lingering around Avengers: Infinity War, the largest being how the movie will end. Do we think that Joe and Anthony Russo will conclude Avengers: Infinity War on a cliffhanger? Will this movie serve as Part One of a two-part story? When CinemaBlend visited the set of Infinity War in Atlanta, we asked them this directly, and got a very interesting reply. Co-director Joe Russo explained:
This stems from the event that Marvel President Kevin Feige held several years ago, where he mapped out the entire Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in one fell swoop. The culmination of that announcement was the reveal that the studio was going to make Avengers: Infinity War -- Part 1 and Part 2. Now, however, the tide has turned, and Avengers 4 is an untitled standalone film, yet one that still continues the story that will be established in Infinity War.
When we met with Joe and Anthony Russo on the Avengers: Infinity War set, they were shooting both films at the same time, and not fully considering where they would split. Or, perhaps, they knew, and just wouldn't share! That's more likely. We don't even know for certain whether Thanos (Josh Brolin) will be part of Avengers 4, or if he'll do something in Avengers: Infinity War that so drastically alters the fabric of the existing MCU that there's no turning back, making Avengers 4 a clean-up movie
We'll know more once Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on April 27. More set visit content is on its way. In the meantime, bookmark our Upcoming Marvel Movies guide to stay up to date on all of the relevant happenings in the MCU.
