While years will have passed between ‘Captain America: Civil War‘ and ‘Avengers: Infinity War‘ it looks as if the status quo will have remained the same. While the comics are showing that Captain America‘s team has been active, it doesn’t sound as if any super villains have been showing up and our heroes have been trying to just keep the world a safer place from the shadows.
According to Joe Russo:
“It’s a direct corollary to the end of Civil War. You’re coming into this film with the ramifications of that film at the forefront of this movie.”
That means the rift between Steve and Tony will be front and center as well as the ramifications of the Sokovia Accords. While the timeline hasn’t been set in stone for audiences quite yet, Joe says that “We always do everything based on when the last movie came out” which would put the movie at some point in April of 2018.
Of course, Anthony Russo chimed in here that it was “gonna be roughly two years” for a timeframe between the films so that the Avengers roster will be “the same group that was with him at the end of Civil War.”
However, we’ve seen hints that Hawkeye will be retired and Ant-Man might be under house arrest in his next movie so there is no indication if either of these two will be active in the fight right off the bat. With Thanos needing to take up such a massive amount of the film, you have to wonder how much they’ll cover of what has been going on with both groups of Avengers while the cameras haven’t been rolling. A quick set of clippings or montage could be fun to see to at least hint at their activities.
Are you happy that the flash forward in time won’t have changed that our heroes are still at odds or were you hoping that fences would have been mended off-screen? Share your thoughts below, True Believers!
