‘Infinity War’ Screenwriter Says ‘Nobody Knows’ What ‘Avengers 4’ Is

Avengers Infinity War Spider-Man Black PantherScreenwriter Stephen McFeely explains that the most exciting thing to him about Avengers 4 is that nobody knows what the Avengers: Infinity War sequel is going to be about. He does say, however, that both films will be unique cinematic experiences.

Speaking to the French publication Premiere, McFeely explained that the secrecy of Avengers 4 plays to that movie’s benefit and that it will be more than just Avengers: Infinity War — Part 2. His remarks roughly translate to the following:

“We know pretty much what’s going on in Avengers 3. You’ve been told who’s the bad guy and what he wants for several movies and it’s not going to change: that’s what’s going to happen. you run it in the best possible way with twists along the way, but you have no idea what Avengers 4 is. Nobody knows, and that’s what makes me particularly excited. I look all the time on the internet: people have no idea! …4 resolves the intrigue of Infinity War; [the movies are] clearly linked, but they almost seem to belong to two different genres. We did not want to cut a film in half and say, ‘Pay now and come back in a year for the rest!’ These are two very different stories, on a tonal and structural level.”

That they’re not going with the two-part structure is a relief to hear, as many attempts to stretch out a single adaptation into two or more movies is a practice that hasn’t been able to replicate the success that the two movies based on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows captured. Given that the promotional campaign for Avengers 4 is likely to start as soon as Infinity War hits the big screen, however, it seems as though they won’t be able to keep many things secret about the fourth film for very long.

Avengers: Infinity War will be released on April 27, 2018, with a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautisa, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Rudd, Benedict Wong, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Tom Hiddleston, Tessa Thompson, Benicio Del Toro, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor and Josh Brolin. Here’s the official synopsis:

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.

The currently-untitled Avengers 4 features a cast made up of many of the key players in Infinity War — alongside newcomers like Brie Larson and Evangeline Lilly — and is scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2019.

    This will put the “two parter kills box office” to the test but it’s kinda weird they’re so afraid to label this a two parter.

    • Brad Leone

      The thing is, the very fact that they originally labelled it as Part II to begin with suggests they weren’t afraid of that at all. All reports I’ve read say that the name change simply came from the plot diverging to the point that it’s simply not a continuation of the same storyline.

  • I dont see anything wrong with a 2 or even 3 parters. Movies used to be the equiv of TV with cliff hangers every week. It was great. People loved it. They should do more.
