Chris Evans is currently juggling the press tour for Avengers: Age of Ultron with pre-production on Marvel’s Phase Three launching Captain America: Civil War, and during an interview with Esquire (via Collider), the star has been speaking about his upcoming Marvel commitments, including the two-part Avengers: Infinity War.
After stating that production on Civil War will run through until “August or September,” Evans revealed Marvel’s plan for Avengers:Infinity War, stating that production will begin in the fall or winter of next year: “That’s going to be like nine months to shoot both [Infinity War] movies back to back.”
Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 is set for release on May 2nd 2018, followed by Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2 on May 3rd, 2019. The films will reunite Evans with Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War directors Anthony and Joe russo, as well as screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.

The two Avengers: Infinity War movies will shoot back to back, starting in 2016, confirms Chris Evans.
With Avengers: Age Of Ultron already over the $200m mark at the global box office, ahead of its Us release later this week, the financial state of the Marvel cinematic universe is very much secure. Furthermore, it would be fair to say that the appetite for Avengers films remains really rather sizeable.
It's a good job Marvel has a couple more of them lined up, then.
Avengers: Infinity War is being split across two films as you probably know. The first will arrive in May 2018, and the second in May 2019. Both are being directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, who will presumably jump straight onto the project after they're done with Captain America: Civil War (which they're about to start filming any day now).
Chris Evans, chatting to Esquire, has confirmed that he'll be »
Today marks the first day of shooting on the highly anticipated "Captain America: Civil War" with that project to continue shooting for the next few months. Of course Marvel Studios is already looking ahead towards its two-film "Avengers: Infinity War" saga and many have wondered when shooting on that project will begin.
Though conducted a few weeks ago, actor Chris Evans' interview with Esquire magazine has just gone online and he talks about the time table of his Marvel filming commitments:
"We start [Captain America: Civil War] in a couple weeks, and then that shoots until August or something like that. August or September. Then I've got some downtime and I can do with it as I please.
I don't know if I want to take time off or go pursue another directing job or find a movie to act in or, you know, do whatever I'm creatively inclined to pursue or wait, »

It's hard to believe it now, but a decade ago the Marvel Cinematic Universe was merely a twinkle in Kevin Feige's eye. Today, McU offerings are blockbuster staples, with the likes of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and more providing film fans with thundering entertainment and a connected universe culminating in the Avengers movies.
With Age of Ultron on the horizon, we've gone back through the 10 Marvel films to-date to rank them all from worst to best. Read on to find out our verdict, then join the discussion in the comments below.
10. Iron Man 2 (2010)
If Iron Man was a savvy exercise in kick-starting a shared cinematic universe, then its sequel brought everything crashing back down with a sharp, painful thud. Overstuffed with new characters, multiple plot strands and far-too-much in the way of Avengers set-up, Iron Man 2 is a step down from its predecessor in practically every way. »
If you were wondering if and when The Defenders might be making the jump to the big screen side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, then Bleeding Cool may just have the answer for you.
According to the site, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist will link up with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2, which is set to hit cinemas in May 2019. Of course, this could be little more than speculation at this point, especially as directors Anthony and Joe Russo and screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have only just signed on to the two-part superhero epic, so this should probably be taken with a healthy pinch of salt for the time being…
Daredevil is currently available on Netflix now, with A.K.A. Jessica Jones set to arrive later this year, followed by Luke Cage in 2016 and Iron Fist and The Defenders at an as-yet-unrevealed date. »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to get much bigger next year with Captain America: Civil War, the first of Marvel's nine Phase Three movies which culminates with the two-part epic adventure Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 in 2018 and 2019. At the same time, another corner of the Marvel universe is being explored with the Netflix TV shows Marvel's Daredevil, which is currently streaming, Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Marvel's Luke Cage and Marvel's Iron Fist. These shows, which have already been confirmed to be a part of the McU, will all converge with the miniseries The Defenders, although it isn't known when that will air. Today we have a new rumor from Bleeding Cool that reveals all of The Defenders will be present for Avengers: Infinity War Part 2.
No specific details were given as to how they may fit into the story, but it's certainly possible that »
Thanos has been lurking in the shadows of the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever since the end-credits tag in The Avengers, and he’s expected to wreak havoc on the entire galaxy when both Avengers: Infinity War installments hit theaters in 2018 and 2019, respectively. However, according to Joss Whedon, the Mad Titan may not be the only one going up against Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and the Guardians of the Galaxy when the time comes to finally step off of his throne.
While the Avengers and Age of Ultron helmer won’t be writing or directing either Infinity War film (that duty belongs to Captain America: The Winter Soldier scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and directors Anthony and Joe Russo), Whedon seems confident that Marvel wouldn’t have split the Infinity War storyline into two films if Thanos was the only antagonist.
The director recently spoke with Vulture writer Kyle Buchanan, »

With Captain America: Civil War getting ready to start production in Atlanta later this month, Variety reports that the movie will be the first to use IMAX's new 2D digital cameras. Director Joe Russo confirmed that approximately 15 minutes of the movie will be shot with these IMAX cameras, including one sequence in particular that has, "some incredible scale to it." Here's what the filmmaker had to say below.
"We like being on the cutting edge of technology, and we like to enhance storytelling with technology in a way that pushes the narrative forward creatively. When you're working on a Marvel film, there's a sense of showmanship that goes along with the movies, and no exhibitor exploits that better than IMAX."
Update: As we mentioned below, the Russos’ regular collaborators Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely seemed like the natural go-to for scripting the huge two-parter. And indeed Badass Digest has confirmed that they’ll take on the job. It’s not exactly breaking news, since the team at Badass Digest got word from a rock solid source at the end of last month. But Marvel has made it officially official, announcing that Captain America: The Winter Solider and Captain America: Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo are set to direct both parts of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s biggest film(s) yet with the two-part Avengers: Infinity War.Nothing was mentioned about who might be tackling the scripts for the films, since the Russos don’t tend to pull a Joss Whedon and write themselves, though they play a big part in crafting the story and resulting drafts.

With Marvel having finally confirmed that Anthony Russo and Joe Russo will direct the two-part "Avengers: Infinity War" saga, director Joss Whedon bows out of his involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the near future.
It comes as little surprise - Whedon admitted last month that the soon to open "Avengers: Age of Ultron" was a "nightmare" shoot and he had no interest in handling the "Infinity War" film. He tells EW:
"Every movie I have ever made has been an ensemble piece of increasingly enormous proportions. That many balls in the air, it's only going to get bigger with Infinity War. I'm not going to be able to give it what I would need to. It's a young man's game."

Earlier this week, Marvel confirmed that Anthony Russo and Joe Russo will direct both Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2, taking over the Avengers franchise from director Joss Whedon. The news didn't come as too much of a surprise, since Joss Whedon revealed in January that he didn't want to direct the two-part Infinity War, and he also said last month that his upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron was "a nightmare" to shoot. Entertainment Weekly recently sat down with Joss Whedon, who discussed why he does not want to direct Infinity War. Here's what he had to say below.
"Every movie I have ever made has been an ensemble piece of increasingly enormous proportions. That many balls in the air, it's only going to get bigger with Infinity War. I'm not going to be able to give it what I would need to. It's a young man's game. »
Marvel is sending the creative team behind Captain America and Captain America: The Winter Solider to infinity and beyond. Following the confirmation that Joe and Anthony Russo will take the reigns off Joss Whedon for the superhero sequel, Badass Digest brings word that Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have been tapped to pen the script for both parts of Avengers: Infinity War.
Today’s news only offers up more evidence of the confidence that the studio has in the writing pair. Along with their work on Steve Rogers’ cinematic outings, Markus and McFeely have also worked on Alan Taylor’s Thor: The Dark World, not to mention shepherding Agent Carter – a show that has proven to be an out-and-out success for Marvel – to existence on ABC.
Much has been said about Joss Whedon’s imminent departure from the McU, and though the fan favorite director is likely to remain on board as a producer, »

Earlier this week Marvel Studios made it official that Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War directors Anthony and Joe Russo are to succeed Joss Whedon on the Avengers franchise by directing the two-part superhero epic Avengers: Infinity War.
Now, BadAssDigest is reporting that – as expected – the Russos will be joined on the project by screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who have apparently signed officially on the dotted line to pen the screenplays. The deal will extend Markus and McFeely’s association with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, having penned all three Captain America movies, as well as contributing to Thor: The Dark World and creating Agent Carter.
Are you happy with this creative team for Avengers: Infinity War, or would you rather have seen Joss Whedon remain involved?
Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 is set for release on May 2nd 2018, followed by Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2 on May 3rd, »

The writers of Captain America: The Winter Soldier are set to write Avengers: Infinity War parts 1 and 2...
Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are now even more important architects of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The pair, who penned Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, are about to take on the writing duties of the two-part Avengers: Infinity War films. That's Avengers 3 and Avengers 4, in case you're keeping count.
Joe and Anthony Russo (directors of the Captain America movies with Markus/McFeely involvement) are officially on board as directors. This is quite a reunion, and it's a sign of how important the Cap franchise has become to Marvel's movie plans. It feels appropriate. Badass Digest first reported Markus and McFeely's involvement.
Just two days after Marvel confirmed that Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo are directing Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2, a new report reveals who will pen this two-part adventure. Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have signed on to write both Infinity War movies. This shouldn't come as too big a surprise, since they wrote 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger, last year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the upcoming Captain America: Civil War.
Badass Digest reports that the writers' deals are done, and expect it to be confirmed very soon. Aside from their work on all of the Captain America movies, the writing duo also penned Thor: The Dark World and created the ABC series Marvel's Agent Carter. The site also speculates that Captain America: Civil War, the first of nine Marvel Phase Three movies, »
And the Cbm news just keeps coming! Before Marvel officially announced that Joe and Anthony Russo would replace Joss Whedon on the next two Avengers movies, Badass Digest got the jump on the news by a good week or so. Well now they're at it again, confirming that the brothers will re-team with Captain America: The Winter Soldier scribes Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely on the Infinity War flicks. These guys are veterans of the McU writing game at this stage (having also worked on Captain America: The First Avenger, Thor: The Dark World and Agent Carter) and have proven that with the Russo Bros. they are a force to be reckoned with. They'll first re-team for Captain America: Civil War on May 6, 2016, and then Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 on May 4, 2018, followed by Part 2 on May 3, 2019. »
The team is assembling for Marvel’s two-part Avengers: Infinity War saga, and it’s mighty familiar. Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo recently closed their deal to direct both of the Phase Three-capping films, and now it appears that they’re bringing The Winter Soldier screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely along with them. When initially reporting that the Russo Brothers would definitely helm Infinity War, Badass Digest noted that Markus and McFeely were in talks to pen the script. Now Badass Digest is reporting that the duo have closed their deal to pen the screenplay for Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2. [caption id="attachment_416996" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Marvel[/caption] Markus and McFeely are kind of Marvel veterans at this point. The two penned the scripts for Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor: The Dark World in addition to The Winter Soldier, and created »

With excitement levels for the upcoming Avengers: Age Of Ultron reaching new-found highs, Marvel have today officially announced Joe and Anthony Russo as directors for the film’s sequels, Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2.
Although rumours of their involvement had been circulating since the end of last month, it’s great to finally have confirmation of the Russos attachment to the two films; the pair having already guided Marvel to box office success with Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Whilst there’s no news as to whether Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely will again be penning the scripts, having already rejoined the brothers on their follow-up Captain America: Civil War, a return would seem likely.
With a host of Marvel films scheduled before the release of Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 (not least the Russo brothers’ aforementioned Civil War next year), the landscape of Marvel films is »

Update: Marvel confirms that Joe and Anthony Russo are on board to direct Avengers: Infinity War - Parts 1 and 2. The original story from March 23 follows. Joe and Anthony Russo, the directing brothers behind Captain America: Winter Soldier and the upcoming Captain America: Civil War will take over the reins on the Avenger films now. THR has confirmed a report earlier in the day from Badass Digest that they will be directing Avengers: Infinity War - Parts 1 and 2. Though no writers are attached to the project yet both sources suggest that Captain America regulars Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely will work with the Russos again. What's more, I keep getting told that Civil War is instrumental in setting up Infinity War, so it's great that...
