Marvel Breaks ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Into Two Parts for 2018, 2019

Marvel is breaking the third installment of its powerhouse Avengers franchise into two parts, studio president Kevin Feige announced at the Marvel fan event on Tuesday.

Part one, dubbed “Avengers: Infinity War,” will debut on May 4, 2018, with part two to follow on May 3, 2019.

The “Avengers” news was only one of several major announcements Marvel dropped on the public at the event at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theater, which revealed Marvel’s nine-movie Phase 3. This will start with “Captain America: Civil War,” which bows May 6, 2016.

The second “Avengers” installment, “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” is set to hit theaters on May 1, 2015, starring Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson and Mark Ruffalo.

The first “Avengers” grossed a whopping $1.5 billion at the worldwide box office after it was released in May 2012, becoming the third-highest grossing pic of all time, as well as the year’s top grossing movie.

    The superhero is more a fad of the Bush administration era. We need to shake it off now. America needs to look forward and grow culturally, not to mention intellectually.

    Let’s get back to movie stars and A-list directors who know how to tell smart stories.

      I agree with you somewhat. Dont get me wrong, I enjoy most of these superhero films but I feel that we are reaching overexposure if we havent already. My hope is that after Infinty Wars the craze slows down a bit if not goes away for a while.

      Shut the fuck up! Always a moron complaining about damn movies and acting like movies are the problem in America. Get the hell out, these movies are the best thing to happen by far and Marvel keeps making better ones they’re specially great for comic fans which there’s millions of those including me. Nobody is forcing you to watch them, let other people enjoy and fuck off.

    I, and I know others, are beginning to dislike the studios doing this to films. Its a rare film that would need 2 parts. “Mockingjay” certainly didn’t need to be and based on other Marvel films, its doubtful that this film needs 2 parts. Claim its necessary in order to fully tell the story. But, I don’t buy it, and I know others feel the same. Its a money grab. The studio also faces the risk of viewer fatigue. Too many “superhero” films may lead to a few bombs.

      It is a massive story that took volumes of comics to tell and that they have been setting up in 50% of their films so far and to do it justice. (?guy takes over the entire universe and possibly kills 50% f the people in the Universe) you need two films. You don’t want Lord of The Rings told in one 150 min film, so why should this be any different.

    • ItsMichaelReid says:

      Its most likely 2 parts because so every character can have their due and to truly show that Thanos is the Ultimate bad guy..The extra money is just a bonus ;)
