With a quoted 67 marvel hero characters tentatively set to have part in the massive upcoming Infinity War double feature film, and the apparent creation of 2 distinctly different marvel Avengers teams after the recent cinematic extravaganza marvel film that was, Captain America: Civil War, many fans are left wondering which team or both or something altogether new will be established…
Speaking to IGN screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely explained that a direct divide wasn’t in the cards. McFeely had this to say:
“When we’re outlining it, we had those conversations. I mean, in the same way that in Civil War not everyone has the same amount of scenes or lines, I think you can assume that with so many characters we’ll have to be as rigorous: These people will have larger stories, while these other people will have smaller stories. Hopefully they can flip – I know a few off the top of my head that have a small part here and a bigger part there.”
Markus followed up his co-writer’s comments by saying:
“Characters in the foreground in one film might be in the background of the next. There will be, you know, moments where every last damn person who’s still alive will be in the same room, and they’re just a nightmare to write because… Marvel being very good about hiring very good actors you have, like… the fifteenth person there has two Oscars.”
The premise (and full character lineup) for the two films is still a closely guarded secret, other than that outer-space villain Thanos and the Infinity Stones are expected to drive the main plot. However, Along with separate teams like Guardians of the Galaxy potentially appearing, it’s more than likely that other potential players like Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man and The Black Panther may not necessarily align with the “main” team.
