Badass Digest is confirming that Captain America and Agent Carter writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have been hired to pen Avengers Infinity War. The pair have been shaping the MCU since The First Avenger along and tearing-down the universe via Winter Soldier and the upcoming Civil War, also spearheading the very awesome Agent Carter mini-series. Obviously, since the writers are pretty much done with Civil War this gives them a good chunk of time to get the two scripts ready for production in 2017.
They’ll be picking-up where Joss Whedon has left off with Age of Ultron, current buzz from yesterday’s early screenings suggests it’s one of the geekiest Marvel films to date. We know that Whedon was getting burned-out and wants to expand creatively with possible original projects, this led to him exiting the Avengers franchise handing over the keys to The Russo Brothers (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War). It was sort of assumed that McFeely and Markus would re-team with the sibling directors but hadn’t been made official until now.
At the moment we have no idea who will survive the events of Age of Ultron, Civil War and Ragnarok to start making predictions what the cast will look like for Infinity War. But, it’s assured that Josh Brolin‘s Thanos will be the big baddie of the flick. We should expect to see some characters from Guardians of The Galaxy. There is also some assumptions that the new Spider-Man could be apart of the film which would setup characters like Venom via Parker’s off-world adventures.
Infinity War Part 1 is coming out May 2018 and Infinity War Part 2 is set for release in May 2019.
