Although we are still several months away from 2015's Avengers 2, rumors about Avengers 3 have surfaced
claiming that the threequel will be so huge that it will need to be split into two separate movies released back-to-back a year apart, similar to what Lionsgate is doing with the final Hunger Games
Assuming these rumors are true, it might not necessarily be as good as it sounds. Both Chris Evans and Robert Downey's contracts last only until Avengers 3 and thanks to the Salkind Clause--a clause in standard actor contracts named after Illya Salkind, producer of Superman: The Movie
, which prevents studios from using extra footage from one movie to make another movie without first paying the actors who were in that footage--we may not see a two-part Avengers 3 unless Marvel renegotiates Evans and Downey's contracts.
Granted, this could happen, but it seems very unlikely
, as Downey made $50 million off the original Avengers
and Evans would likely demand similar pay. Whether Marvel would be willing to pay Evans that much--and more--is what makes this rumor seem highly unlikely to be true.
Only time will tell whether this rumor has any basis in fact.
