With ‘Avengers 4‘ initially being set to be a direct sequel to ‘Avengers: Infinity War‘, many have wondered why the films are no longer being shot back to back. Now, Kevin Feige is revealing the answer to this question. The fourth Avengers film was initially set to be titled ‘The Avengers: Infinity War Part 2‘ though lost the title almost a year ago with just a tentative placeholder taking it over.
Why aren’t the films no longer being shot back to back?
“We’re doing them one right after another… It became too complicated to cross-board them like that, and we found ourselves—again, something would always pay the price. We wanted to be able to focus and shoot one movie and then focus and shoot another movie.”
It still sounds as if the films are going to be strongly related to one another if having them shoot at the same time could have worked, though what that means exactly is clearly a mystery. One which will take years to answer as Marvel Studios slowly brings us the next two Avengers films.
Are you looking forward to ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and ‘Avengers 4’? Do you feel that the two films will still be a two-part experience or will they just be related due to the Infinity Gauntlet, Thanos, or another key piece of the story? Share your thoughts below True Believers!
