Avengers Infinity War Part One and Part Two Scheduled for 2018 & 2019

Thanos, your time to shine has finally arrived.

No Caption Provided

Today, Marvel Studios revealed what Phase Three has in store for us and it looks like we finally know when Thanos will take on the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe! The Studio is breaking the story into two parts and calling it Infinity War. Part One is set for May 4, 2018 and Part Two will be May 3, 2019.

What's interesting is Infinity War is the title of the Infinity Gauntlet's follow-up. Will Part One focus on the battle with the Mad Titan, and Part Two focus on the aftermath involving Adam Warlock? If so, does this mean we'll see Adam Warlock play a role in Guardians of the Galaxy 2? Director James Gunn confirmed that's his cocoon in the Collector's room, after all. Seeing as this story will conclude Phase Three, it seems reasonable to assume this conflict will not only gather the Avengers (whoever is on the roster at that point), but also the Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain Marvel, and the Inhumans. Thanos has been established as this universe's big bad, so you can bet they're going to need some help dealing with this cosmic powerhouse.

We'll keep you updated as more information is released about Marvel Studios' future.

EDIT

Watch the teaser while you can.

I found the infinity war story to be pretty lame, honestly.

I just hope this isn't the final level of the MCU. There's so much to still be done.

But what's bigger than Infinity Gauntlet? That'll be a tough act to follow.

I think that you are reading too much into the title. I think it means that the different groups of heroes may fight to get the gems safe and Thanos may get them at last.

There was a picture of Thanos with the Infinity Gauntlet at the event. Didn't share because it hasn't been officially released yet. Seeing as they've been teasing Thanos since 2012 and this will be 6 years later, I think it's safe to say they're going to finally have him step forward and pose a threat.

Yeah, Age of Ultron has shown us that Marvel is not above simply using a sweet title from the comics, but not rehashing said story line.

Given that Marvel have invented the best movie universe making formula, I'd say they don't need to copy from second best.

It's posted just above this comment Gregg. You can add it to the article if you want. I think it comes from Comicbookmovies.com.

Well, maybe so, but DC announced the split Justice league films first.

And you have to play up DC's already flawed cinematic universe before anyone else to compensate for Marvel's announcement. Two peas in unlike pods.

With that part I agree. I think that during the first part the teams will chase the gems to see if they can get them before Thanos (each team will fight for the gems). And In the second part Thanos will have the infinite gauntelt. The part that I don´t agree with is the second part that you propose, I don´t think that they will give that much focus to Adam in movie that has Avengers in the title.

@spidey_jackson: Yeah but they could introduce new ones: Baron Zemo, MODOK, Enchantress (if she isn't in Ragnarok), Wonder Man could be introduced. I know they don't top Thanos much but a team of villains against a team of heroes is yet to be done in the MCU

I doubt it will be the end. I think it would be a great idea if they have a year or two year break between Infinity War Part II and the next phase. That would be a good way to give audiences a break after such (what I'm assuming will be) a really epic story but also build up hype.

@meteors: Does Marvel own the Skrull?

And the ENTIRE MCU has been building to Thanos. So i can't imagine someone after that.

It's almost like DC and Marvel are communicating on this. Both BvS and Cap3 have similarities... JL and Avengers 3 are in two parts...

I like the 2 part idea for Infinity War since the movies will only be a year apart and could be connected with a cliffhanger. But how is DC going to have a two parter that's directly connected if they have several films coming out between releases? Is there going to be some big cliffhanger and then the Aquaman and Flash films will just be occurring at a different time frame or something?

I'm excited for all of these but I would prefer both sides do things differently. I don't want to see Marvel and DC relentlessly copying off each other with their "event" films.

I wonder if Bucky will appear as Captain America in this movie, seeing as it's looking to appear as if Cap might die in Civil War?

Somebody mention what could they do after Inifnity gauntlet?

I hope phase 4 is the rise of the Young Heros.

We could see Young avengers, Runaways, Ms. Marvel( inhumans and captain marvel would have established a greater connection) and it could be about the people inspire by these heros perhaps in the heros absence.

Maybe it ends after Phase 3. They don´t seem to have plans after that but they could always surprise with something more.

Beata

I have no clue. That's why I originally thought that Avengers 4 would be Civil War because it wouldn't be more epic, but could increase the stakes on a more personal level between the heroes...

but now that that's pretty much out the window I can't think of much.

I'm always down for a Siege/Dark Reign series though. Though it would require rights to Spidey.

So people had a problem when DC announced that Justice League part 1 and part 2 was one year apart it was labeled to quick but 2018/2019 for Avengers is ok.

I hope they take inspiration from Hickman's Infinity. Anyway it will be awesome finally seeing the Thanos storyline come to fruition in a 2 part Avengers movie. Epic.
