We just heard from Joe and Anthony Russo in regards to Spider-Man in the Captain America: Civil, now check out what the directors have to say about The Avengers: Infinity War. Speaking with Forbes, the Russo's menton Thanos, new characters and Spider-Man.
On whether Disney/Marvel requires certain characters for Avengers: Infinity War:
JR: Maybe thereâ€™s a character requirement but with things likeÂ Avengers: Infinity WarÂ thatâ€™s obvious because itâ€™s a culmination of all the films in the phase that have preceded it. You know that Thanos is going to be in there and the majority of the Marvel Universe is going to appear in the movies. Those are givens, but after that we can construct any narrative we want around it and what we think is the best execution of the story.
On new characters appearing in Avengers: Infinity War:
AR: There are certain characters that you donâ€™t know.
JR: New characters that are going to appear inÂ Avengers: Infinity War. Itâ€™s a big sprawling ambitious movie, itâ€™s about as ambitious as movies get and it should be, and the title alone indicates that there will be an incredible scape and scope to it.
On where they are at in regards to Avengers: Infinity War:
AR: It is intended to be the entire culmination of the Marvel cinematic universe and, in many ways, the end to that part of it. But we donâ€™t even have the first draft in on that script yet; weâ€™re still in the outline phase. Itâ€™s hard not to talk about it too specifically now only because of spoilers but also because weâ€™re still figuring it out.
AR: We have an idea but letâ€™s see if that evolves over the next couple of months.
Will Spider-Man appear in Avengers: Infinity War:
JR: To be determined. Weâ€™ll see.
"The Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1" has a May 4, 2018 release, with Part 2 on May 3, 2019.
