Avengers: Infinity War might be part of Marvel's upcoming two-part Avengers movie but it looks like the film and its sequel don't really act as a "true two-parter."
Screen Rant and a few other outlets just recently visited the set of Avengers:Infinity War and got to speak with various members of the film's cast and crew. Sitting down to talk with directors Joe and Anthony Russo, the publication was told that the original two-part direction of the film changed as production went along.
"It isn't a true two-parter," Joe said. "I think the two-parter concept came back when Marvel decided they were going to culminate the MCU, it was going to be a two-movie deal. But as we developed the movie, in execution, it ended up being more of two singular expressions."
Though the two movies will still be connected, the filmmakers say that the link between Infinity War and Avengers 4 will be more like the one between The Winter Soldier and Civil War.
"[The films relate to each other] in the way that The Winter Soldier relates to Civil War, and the way that Civil War relates to Infinity War," Joe went on. "These two movies will also relate. There's a narrative thread that is connecting these films, but at the same time, there's an independence in terms of what the experience is or where the story goes."
We guess that the experience is going to be different between the two, Infinity War being the opener and Avengers 4 being the closer. The only question now is what exactly makes the two independent of each other, and what kind of surprises might each movie bring.
Avengers: Infinity War premieres April 27. Avengers 4 makes its big debut May 3, 2019.
