‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Part 1 And 2 To Get Brand New Title
“Avengers: Infinity War,” the upcoming two-part sequel to ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ is getting a rebranding. The film’s directors believe the original title is misleading and plan to give each movie a new title.Advertisement
According to Comicbook, directors Joe and Anthony Russo believe that simply using the name of the films’ plot source would be misleading to moviegoers. Each film of the upcoming 2-part sequel will instead feature new titles to show how different the movies are from each other.
Joe Russo stated that the sequels are two different movies although they are both adaptations of the Infinity War storyline. The directors are yet to come up with a title for each movie but confirm that they will change it.
The films are set to be filmed back-to-back with the first films set for release on 2018. The plot has already been built up from previous films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It was previously reported that ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ will allegedly feature 67 characters, which got fans all excited. It was later revealed that 67 was more or less the number of characters already introduced in previous films.
According to IGN another development involves the appearance of Star-Lord in the sequels. Chris Pratt will be reprising the role although it is unclear if he will appear in the first or second film.
Thanos is also set to be in the upcoming film. After being making short appearances in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,” he will finally take the stage as the main antagonist.
“Avengers: Infinity War,” as it is currently known, will begin filming in November this year. It will be shot entirely in IMAX, which is the first movie to do so. The currently untitled Part 1 is set for release on May 4, 2018, with Part 2 set a year later on May 3, 2019.
