Hmm, There’s a Slight Title Change for the Next Avengers Movies
Part One and Part Two are no more.
Remember when we thought there were going to be two parts to Avengers: Infinity War? It was over a year ago–which feels like an… infinity. (Okay, okay, no points for that dumb pun.) However, the scuttlebutt from Disney now is that Marvel Studios has officially changed the titles for the upcoming two Avengers films, though the release dates are still staying the same.
The film formerly known as Avengers: Infinity War Part I has been shortened to Avengers: Infinity War. (It’ll be released in theaters on May 4, 2018.) What does that mean for Part II? Well, as of now, the follow-up Avengers movie, which will premiere nearly a year later on May 3, 2019, remains untitled.
According to Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo, the name change has been a plan in the works for a while now. Back in May, the two spoke with Uproxx about the planned switch, saying that labeling them as a two-parter was “misleading” because the films are “two very different movies.” (So, essentially, this ain’t going to be like Deathly Hallows Parts One and Two, and at least we won’t have to wait a year for the second part.) With this announcement from Disney as of yesterday, the name change is official.
