AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Screenwriters On Whether The Films Will Be Split Between Two AVENGERS Teams

Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely discuss how they'll structure the two-part Avengers film which will finally see Thanos (Josh Brolin) step to the forefront. [Spoiler Warning]

At the end of Captain America: Civil War it seems as if the MCU will  have two Avengers teams moving forward - one led by Tony Stark, which acts under direction from the United Nations; and a "secret" Avengers team led by Steve Rogers, which operates out of Wakanda.  Are these two teams the narrative tool Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely will use to split Avengers: Infinity War into two parts?  That is to say, will one film focus on Iron Man's team while the other focuses on Cap's squad?   




"When outlining [Infinity War], we certainly had those conversations. In the same way that in Civil War, not everyone has the same amount of scenes or lines. I think that you can assume that with so many characters [in Infinity War], we'll have to be as rigorous. Certain characters will have larger stories and others will have smaller stories and hopefully they can flip in some cases - I know a few right off the top of my head, that have a small part [in one movie] and a bigger part [in the other movie].  The people in the background in one, might come to the foreground in the other. There are moments where every damn person who's still alive will be in the same room and [those scenes] are just a nightmare to write because Marvel is very good about hiring good actors.  It's like the 15th person in the scene has two Oscars. So, yeah, it's crazy."

Avengers: Infinity War will be directed by Joe and Anthony Russo from a script written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Part 1 is scheduled to be released on May 4, 2018, and Part 2 is scheduled to be released on May 3, 2019. The films are expected to be shot back-to-back (and entirely using IMAX cameras), beginning in November 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia.
