AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR – PART I (2018): Film To Undergo Title Change

Josh Brolin Avengers Age Of Ultron

Marvel intends to change the name of Avengers: Infinity War – Part I. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo revealed that the planned Avengers‘ film and it’s sequel will no longer carry the “Part I” and “Part 2” subheadings.

Speaking to Uproxx, the two directors explained that the movies’ current titles are just placeholders and that they plan to give them different names before their release. This is partially because, as they say, the two films are very different from each other, requiring some way of indicating to audiences that they are not necessarily two parts of the same story. They did not reveal the titles they had in mind however, although that information will come out closer to the first film’s release date:

A number of Marvel crossover comics have not only used the “Infinity” namesake but also included the villain Thanos, such as Infinity Gauntlet, Infinity Crusade, Infinity Abyss, and simply Infinity. Any of these could prove to be the title of one of the films, but what those titles will be remain unconfirmed. Check back here for when Marvel officially announces them!

Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely will pen the scripts for the two features which directors Anthony and Joe Russo will film entirely in IMAX. Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 is slated for release in theaters on May 4, 2018; Part 2 will open on May 3, 2019.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
