Marvel super-directors, Joe and Anthony Russo (Captain America: Winter Soldier), are currently enjoying the success of their newest film, Captain America: Civil War, which just broke $700 million worldwide. Their next endeavors, Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 in 2018 and Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2 in 2019, will be the biggest projects they've tackled yet.
However, while talking with Uproxx, the Russo Bothers revealed that the two films will be entirely different entities, as opposed to a two-part story as most assumed. “The movies are two very different movies,” said Joe.
They were, then, asked if it’s misleading having them labeled as Part 1 and Part 2. "It is misleading,” agreed Anthony.
Joe added, “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.”
This makes a lot of sense because it’s pretty obvious the Russos don’t particularly like the idea of people thinking they are only getting half a movie and are adamant what we will see in those two upcoming Avengers movies are very different stories. Not to mention: audiences haven’t been too keen on this sort of thing when The Hunger Games: Mockingjay did that and now with what we’re seeing with the Divergent series. If, like the Russos say, these are two separate stories – then, yes, it makes sense they want each movie to have its own title. And I’m sure we will hear from Marvel just what those titles will be once they get it all figured out.
