Since the fateful day Nick Fury broke into Tony Stark’s mansion and introduced moviegoers to the very concept of the Avengers Initiative, the now massive Marvel Cinematic Universe has been careening toward a war the likes of which the silver screen has never witnessed before.
Now, with the highly anticipated Captain America: Civil War in finally in theaters, the next big event to shake up the MCU is set to undergo a few minor alterations.
When Marvel Studios announced “Phase 3” its ambitious lineup included a two-part cinematic event starring Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Well now, according to the masterful Russo Brothers’ Avengers: Infinity War Part I and Part II are no more… in a matter of speaking.
While the Avengers will definitely be assembling once again, this time with the added bonus of a few extra heroes, to take on the Mad Titan, Thanos, in what is technically will still be two separate movies, the directors behind the recent event that tore Marvel’s Mightiest apart have officially announced that they will be retitling the Infinity War.
During a recent interview with Uproxx, one-half of Marvel’s wonder-team, Joe Russo, said that the two films that were set to make up parts one and two of Infinity War will apparently be “two very different movies.”
“The intention is we will change it, we just haven’t come up with the titles yet. But, yes, we will change it. And, yes, that is a scoop: we will retitle them.”
Anthony Russo added that they felt the Part I and Part II titles were “misleading.”
While there has not yet been any word just yet on what the films new titles will be, fans can rest assured that whatever the Russos are planning to do with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will probably be fantastic.
You can catch the Avengers in action in Captain America: Civil War in theaters now.
