The Russo brothers have been chatting a lot about their upcoming Marvel projects at the Wizard World New Orleans Comic Convention and in particular opened up about Avengers: Civil War. The film will complete Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and gives the brothers an opportunity to switch around with the members of the Avengers.
“Everything is finite, right? Nothing can last forever,” Joe Russo began to explain. “It’s cyclical. Some New Avengers in phase 4 are going to become prominent and then maybe some Avengers might not be around anymore. So, we’ll see how all this plays out but you have to treat every character with respect. I think it’s interesting that if you’ve seen four or five movies with the lead character having an arc, I want to see some story telling from some of the secondary characters. We’re focusing on that right now with Infinity War while we’re breaking into those movies, is which characters can we pull to the forefront who potentially haven’t had their own ‘A’ story arc to this point. I think you’ll see that the supporting Avengers are going to become primary Avengers.”
In the ending of Avengers: Age of Ultron there’s a new team of Avengers comprising of; Captain America, Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, Vision, The Falcon and War Machine. The Russo brothers haven’t confirmed yet which characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be teaming up for Avengers: Infinity War, but in a recent interview with ComicBook.com they all-but-confirmed the Guardians of the Galaxy would join the Avengers!
Infinity War Parts I and II are set to land in cinemas in May of 2018 and 2019.
