'The Avenger: Infinity War' Release Date, News & Update: Robert Downey Jr. & Chris Evans Set To Make More Marvel Films; No Crossover With 'The Avengers' And 'X-Men'?
Marvel Studios, President Kevin Feige has confirmed that the "Avengers: Infinity War" film will begin its production in January 2017. However, Feige also announced that they are now looking for new actors in the untitled Avenger sequel since some of their actor's contract is coming to an end.
The "Avengers: Infinity War" fans don't have anything to worry about because Iron Man" actor Robert Downey Jr. and "Captain America" actor Chris Evans is set to appear in future Avenger's films. "There are a lot of movies that everyone is signed on for, and we get to enjoy them for a long time," said Kevin Feige in an interview with Variety.
The Marvel President also stated that he "can't envision anyone else" playing "Iron Man" but Robert Downey Jr. only as well as Chris Evans as "Captain America" in the "Avenger: Infinity War" sequel. Which only means that Robert Downey Jr. will still be around for "Iron Man 4" and while Chris Evans said he'll be focusing as a director, it seems that he'll stick to acting for a bit more.
Kevin Feige was also asked about possibilities of an "Avengers" crossover with "X-Men" or 'Fantastic 4" films but he instantly cancels out the idea. "It's an impossibility at this juncture. We certainly have enough films to keep us busy for a number of lifetimes," the producer said.
The "Avenger: Infinity War" fans also noticed that the Avengers team's villains have been generally weak. The fans think that the Avenger's extraordinary power needs to have stronger villains in order for the Avenger teams to shine.
The "Avengers: Infinity War" will be released on May 4, 2018 while its untitled sequel will be released a year later on May 3, 2019. The "Avengers: Infinity War" will also feature Benedict Cumberbatch as "Doctor Strange" and some of the cast from "The Guardians of the Galaxy" Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel and Zoe Saldana.
