‘The Avengers’: Next two movies will be retitled as they are ‘very different’

The next two instalments are due in cinemas in 2018 and 2019

Directors Joe and Anthony Russo have revealed that the next two Avengers films are to be retitled.

The films are currently being referred to as Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2, but the directors have confirmed that this will change as it gives the “misleading” impression that they are closely connected.

“The movies are two very different movies,” Joe Russo told Uproxx.

“It is misleading,” Anthony Russo added, before Joe explained: “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.”

The film currently known as Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 is set for release in 2018, with the film currently known as Part 2 to follow in 2019.

Joe and Anthony Russo have also directed the latest Marvel movie, Captain America: Civil War, which opens in the US tomorrow (May 5) having hit UK cinema screens on April 29. The sibling directing duo made their Marvel debut with 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
