Avengers: Infinity War is a good title, but some people may be wary about the “two-parter”. Two-part films started to become standard for series conclusions with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but now it’s become passé. Some audience members feels like they’re only getting half a story, and then they inevitably feel like what they’ve received is unbalanced and underwhelming. Furthermore, unlike Deathly Hallows or Breaking Dawn, Infinity War isn’t a conclusion. It’s a conclusion of sorts, but it’s not like the MCU will end with these two movies.
Thankfully, directors Joe and Anthony Russo aren’t married to the Infinity War title, or at least not to the Part 1 and Part 2 of that had been previously announced by Marvel. Speaking to Uproxx, the Russos clarified that it really isn’t a two-part story with a cliffhanger, which means what we’re really looking at here is Avengers 3 and Avengers 4 rather than Avengers 3 and Avengers 3.5. “The movies are two very different movies,” said Joe Russo.
“It is misleading,” added Anthony, which means that a title change is on the way.
“The intention is we will change it, we just haven’t come up with the titles yet. But, yes, we will change it. And, yes, that is a scoop: we will retitle them.”
So what will the new titles be and when will we get them? That’s anyone’s guess at this point, and presumably Marvel wants to keep the focus on Civil War right now rather than jump ahead to 2018 and 2019 when these two movies are slated to open.
Presumably, at least one movie will stick with the title Infinity War, or at least I hope it does. What titles do you think the new Avengers movies should have? Are you cool with ditching the Part 1 and Part 2? Sound off in the comments section.
