Just a few months ago, directors Anthony & Joe Russo were making the publicity rounds for Captain America: Civil War, and conversation turned to the forthcoming two-part sequel that would bring The Avengers back together yet again for another big screen battle. At the time, they indicated that The Avengers: Infinity War – Part I and The Avengers: Infinity War – Part II would each have different titles because, “The movies are two very different movies. It’s misleading.”
At the time, Anthony & Joe Russo confirmed that they would give a new title to each of the sequels, but there was no indication as to what they would be called. That changes today as Disney has confirmed the official title for The Avengers sequel arriving in 2018. Find out The Avengers Infinity War title after the jump. Read More »

Captain America: Civil War may not technically have been an Avengers movie, but it did bring together nearly every hero in the Marvel universe to date, with few exceptions. Thor and Hulk being gone makes sense, considering the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron — and besides, we know the really reason they sat this one out was so they could go on a buddy road trip next year. But what about Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury, the man who originally brought all these superpowered beings together? Where was he in all of this?
In a recent interview, Captain America: Civil War screenwriters Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus addressed Fury’s absence, and revealed whether the former director of S.H.I.E.L.D. might return for the next big Marvel team-up, the two-part Avengers: Infinity War. Read More »

Captain America: Civil War does a pretty great job of getting audiences pumped for the coming onslaught of Marvel Phase Three movies, capped off by Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 and Part 2 in 2018 and 2019. But prepare to adjust your expectations ever so slightly. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo say the films will probably change their titles, to reflect the fact that they’re two completely different movies and not a single movie broken into two parts.

We don’t know much about the plot of Marvel’s Phase Three, but we know how it’s going to end. Ever since the end of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers, we knew the mad titan Thanos was going to become a factor. The most powerful villain in the Marvel Universe was on the hunt for the Infinity Stones he so famously acquired in the classic comic story, Infinity Gauntlet. Putting all of the gems together would give Thanos all the power in the universe, which isn’t a good thing for the universe.
So through a bunch of Marvel movies we saw these gems and their terrible destructive powers. Then in this year’s Guardians of the Galaxy, we finally heard from Thanos himself. He’s played by Josh Brolin and will play a big factor going ahead. Unfortunately, as of this moment, Thanos has a grand total of zero Infinity gems, but that’s going to change by the time Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 hits theaters May 2018. The title alone suggests Thanos will finally have what he desires and, in a new interview, Brolin all but confirmed that. Read the new Josh Brolin Thanos quotes below. Read More »
UPDATE: This original story ran on October 13. Now Deadline has heard the same thing, making it even more likely. Original story follows with minor updates.
The massive news that Robert Downey Jr. will play Tony Stark in Captain America: Civil War answered a bunch of burning questions about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It gave us our overall storyline for Phase 3: Civil War. It tells us when Marvel will bring Iron Man back again: not Iron Man 4, but in Cap 3. And it tells us the directors of Captain America 3, Joe and Anthony Russo, are very well liked and trusted at Marvel Studios.
Which is why, along with the Downey Jr. news, rumors began to swirl that the Russo Brothers are in line to direct Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and maybe even Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 if Joss Whedon decides not to return. Below, read more about the Avengers 3 director news and how Phase 3 and 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are shaping up, Read More »
We don’t know when The Avengers 3 is going to be released. We don’t know who’s going to write it, who’s going to direct it, but we always thought we know who’d star. Now, even that may be up in the air.
A new rumor says that whatever Marvel Studios has planned for the eventual third Avengers film isn’t what we think at all. It may not even feature many of the big stars of Phase 1 and 2. Stars like Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor or Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow. According to the rumor, Marvel might be packing Avengers 3 with the new stars of their universe. Characters like the Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man and Doctor Strange setting up some kind of even bigger event after that. Read more about this Avengers 3 rumor below. Read More »

Most people couldn’t dream of stealing scenes away from colorful characters like Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon, but Drax the Destroyer isn’t most people. The hilariously literal warrior won us over in this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy, with his dry delivery, tragic sob story, and badass moves. Now it seems Marvel’s hoping he’ll do the same in Avengers 3.
Rumor has it Dave Bautista is being set up for a major role in the upcoming threequel, which is expected to close out Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hit the jump for all the details.
