‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ directors, brothers Joe and Anthony Russo, will direct the two-part ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ in one extended shoot.
With the success of The Winter Soldier, the brothers, are poised to succeed writer/director Joss Whedon, who has made clear that he would like to move on to some of his own, smaller projects for a while.
Whedon directed the first two Avengers films, including the upcoming ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ which opens May 1.
While no writers have been named for A:IW, the Russos will likely reunite with Winter Soldier’s Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. They also collaborated on ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ which the Russos will begin shooting next month.
Civil War, which is considered to be a mini ‘Avengers’ movie due to the large cast of nearly every Marvel hero not locked out by legal agreements with other studios, has a May 6, 2016, release date. Infinity War — Part 1 and Infinity War — Part 2 are planned to be released May 4, 2018, and May 3, 2019, respectively.
Captain America: Civil War confirms synopsis
A brief synopsis has accompanied the casting call, revealing key plot points. According to the synopsis, “Following the events of Age Of Ultron, the collective governments of the world pass an act designed to regulate all superhuman activity. This polarizes opinion amongst the Avengers, causing two factions to side with Iron Man or Captain America, which causes an epic battle between former allies.” Co-starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, and Anthony Mackie, Captain America: Civil War will open in the UK on 29 April 2016 and the US on May 6, 2016.
