‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Writers Tease ‘Guardians’ Crossover
We already know that the soon-to-be-retitled Avengers: Infinity War will unite much of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, boasting the studio’s largest lineup to date. And while James Gunn has no plans to bring other MCU characters over for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have hinted that Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord will appear in Infinity War — but he might not be the only Guardian to make that jump.
‘Civil War’ Filmmakers Reveal Two Scenes That Were Cut
After two phases of superhero films, Marvel’s filmmaking engine has become rather efficient, which is why you shouldn’t expect to see much in the way of deleted scenes when Captain America: Civil War eventually hits DVD and Blu-ray. Still, cuts are inevitable, and according to the directors and screenwriters, there are at least a couple of notable — if somewhat minor — moments that didn’t make the theatrical version.
'Infinity War' Writers Doubt Scheduling in 'The Defenders'
Attention now turning from Civil War to Avengers: Infinity War (or whatever they end up calling it), time and time again Marvel brass have tempered expectations as to whether the climactic MCU event will finally bridge the gulf between movie and TV. Not likely, it seems, as writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely reveal the “nearly impossible” challenge in logistics.
‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Won’t Actually Have 67 Characters
Captain America: Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo previously sent the internet into a slight tizzy when they revealed that their epic two-part Avengers: Infinity War will have something like 67 characters. That would seem like a lot of superheroes, if you took the Russo brothers’ comments literally. And just in case you did, Infinity War scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are here to assure you that’s not actually the case, but there is one character in particular who will be in the film — and he’ll have a much bigger role.
'Agents of SHIELD' Inhumans Won't Feature Into 'Civil War'
It’s well-documented at this point that Marvel movies take no cue from the multiple TV tie-ins, most always the other way around, though Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3's worldwide introduction of Marvel’s Inhumans seemed at least potentially worth a mention. Not so, apparently, as Captain America: Civil War’s writers had no awareness of the TV branch in crafting Cap’s international adventure.
'Avengers: Infinity War' Taps 'Captain America' Writers
Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have been crucial to the MCU, writing screenplays for the Captain America films in addition to Thor: The Dark World. It makes sense that the two would continue their work well into Phase 3. Not only are they re-teaming with Joe and Anthony Russo for Captain America: Civil War, but the pair will now also write both parts of Avengers: Infinity War, making them the rug that ties the room of the MCU together.
‘Captain America: Civil War’ Screenwriters Open Up About the Film
If you think the Marvel Cinematic Universe is dominating your life now, just wait until 2016 when Steve Rogers and Tony Stark go head-to-head in ‘Captain America: Civil War.’ It’s a movie so big that it actually scared ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ away from its original release date. So when you read the latest comments on the film by screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (who also wrote the first two ‘Captain America’ films), just try to imagine the amount of pressure on their shoulders. Lesser screenwriters would be crushed.
