‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Will No Longer Be Released In Two Parts

It was announced last year that Avengers: Infinity War would be released in two parts, exactly a year apart – now however Marvel Studios has scrapped that idea and will instead release the film as a single entity that will likely span almost 3 hours.

The May 2019 spot that was previously held by Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2 will still see an Avengers film released, though it will no longer be a direct continuation and will instead bring us something completely different.

Considering these films mark the pinnacle of Marvel‘s colossal Cinematic Universe, bringing together all the characters featured since the introduction of Iron Man back in 2008, this announcement is a major reshuffle for the franchise.

It’s worth noting though that back in April this year Joe and Anthony Russo, who’ve taken over the directors seat from Joss Whedon, spoke of their unusual production approach for Avengers: Infinity War;

“One piece of the process is really important to us: that we watch and cut scenes every 48 hours,” he told Den of Geek. “So that we’re constantly assessing how the ideas are working. And if they are working, how can we make them work even better? And if they’re not working, then how do we fix them? I think it’ll be a very difficult, long shoot, because we’ll constantly be shooting and assessing and reshooting and assessing.”Joe Russo

As we spoke about earlier, Avengers: Infinity War will see a whole host of Marvel superheroes join together for the first time to take on the universes biggest villain, Thanos. The likes of Chris Pratt, Paul Rudd, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland and Brie Larson are all rumoured for parts in the blockbuster.

Avengers: Infinity War is slated for release worldwide on 4 May 2018.
