While True Believers are currently focused on ‘Captain America: Civil War’ debuting this weekend, Joe and Anthony Russo already have their sights set on their next major Marvel Cinematic Universe project. Following their second foray with the Sentinel of Liberty, they’re tasked with assembling Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the two-part Phase Three finale ‘Avengers: Infinity War‘. Although, despite becoming the standard for a film series’ finale like with ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ or ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn’, this two-parter won’t really be a conclusion. Yes, Phase Three will be ending, but the MCU will continue on. So what will the Russos do to reflect that with the fourth and fifth Avengers movies? They’ll change the titles.
According to a recent interview with Uproxx to promote ‘Civil War’, the directing duo discussed how misleading the titles of their upcoming Marvel Studios projects are. Though they are connected, Joe Russo made it clear that each stands alone and they have plans in place to make that more well known:
“The movies are two very different movies. 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.”
There are currently no indication as to what the new titles will be or when we will find out, but presumably, one of them will retain the ‘Infinity War’ moniker. Although, if I had to make an educated guess, my money would be that the second movie would keep that title. There’s something poetic about starting Phase Three with a war and ending with a war.
What do you think about the Russos changing the titles of the two-part ‘Avengers: Infinity War’? Do you have any ideas about what they should be named instead? Let us know in the comments below.
