Avengers 3 Infinity War
The second part of Avengers has once again broke records at box office and has become one of the highest grossing film of all time. While Avengers: Age of Ultron didn’t match up to critics and fans expectations but the craze for Avengers hasn’t gone a bit down among fans worldwide. Marvel released its phase 3 plans in 2014 and we learned that the third part of Avengers will be released in two parts (Just like final Harry Potter film). The title of the third avengers film would be Avengers 3 Infinity War. There is no doubt that Avengers 3 is the most anticipated film that will be released this decade. Here is everything that you need to know about Avengers 3 Infinity War.
Who Will Direct Avengers 3 Infinity War
Since Josh Whedon already announced during the shooting of Age of Ultron that he would retire from avengers film after that, So Marvel were looking for new director. Marvel Studios showed faith in Russos brothers (Anthony Russo and Joseph Russo) who made a brilliant sequel of Captain America (The Winter Soldier). Kevin Fiege was so impressed from their work that not only they were brought back to direct Captain America 3: Civil War but also were assigned for Avengers 3.
Cast of Avengers 3 Infinity War
The biggest question circulating around Avengers 3 Infinity War is that who will reprise their roles and who will be the new avenger member. As of now the biggest rumor is that all the original members or Avengers are expected to reprise their role in the third installment and it does make sense.
Fan Favorite Iron man will return in Avengers 3. However it would be interesting to see that what side he would be fighting for. Robert Downey Jr. signed a six movie deal with Marvel which included three Iron man films and three avengers films. However in 2014, Robert Downey Jr. extended his contract and signed for one more movie Captain America Civil War. Comic book fans know that in Civil War Iron Man plays the role of main villain.
Chris Evans is expected to return as Captain America. But it is still unknown if it would be a cameo or a central role. For those who don’t know, Captain America dies in civil war (in comics) and if the film adaption is to follow the same route that we are surely going to see a tragic death of Cap on screen. There are rumors that he will be brought back to life by one of the infinity stones (in Infinity Wars 2) to fight Thanos.
Similar to Captain America, the future of Thor is also unknown. The third solo film of Thor is titled Thor: Ragnarok. Ragnarok is the term used for Apocalypse in Norse mythology. In the comic book story line of Ragnarok, Thor returns to Asgard to find that a more powerful clone of him is ruling Asgard. Thor dies in this story line. Chris Hemsworth has a six picture deal with Marvel which includes 3 Avengers film so we surely he will return in Avengers 3.
Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk was shown flying to unknown destination by the end of Age of Ultron. This was probably done to explain his missing during the Civil War. As Marvel has stated that they save Hulk for Avengers films so there is no doubt that the green eyed monster would be back in Avengers 3.
Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow are among the original members of Avengers Assemble. There was a big rumor that Hawkeye would die in Avengers 2 but he survived. Jeremy Renner will reprise the role of Hawkeye in Civil war and he is expected to return in Avengers 3. Black Widow on the other hand is the only female superhero of the team so it would make sense to keep her alive for Avengers 3.
The Big Purple Titan God Thanos is like a connecting line in Marvel Cinematic Universe. He was introduced in the the original Avengers Assemble film. Since then he is making a post credit appearance in almost every Marvel film. We came to know a more about him in Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel has already stated that Thanos will be the main villain of Avengers 3 so expect Josh Brolin to once again voice the purple head monster.
Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch joined the new avengers team by the end of Age of Ultron. She might appear in Civil war but it is unknown if she will return in Avengers 3. One thing is for sure that Paul bettany will return as Vision. After all the last infinity stone that Thanos needs is on the head of this red suit superhero. In fact he is the reason Thanos would be attacking earth. To fight Thanos Avengers need all the superheroes on the earth. So Anthony Mackie’s Falcon, Don Cheadle War Machine will also reprise their role. Cobie Smulders Maria Hill and Samuel L Jackson’s Nick Fury might appear in a scene or two in Avengers 3. They will play a major role in Captain America 3.
Marvel signed up actor Chadwick Boseman to play the popular superhero Black Panther. The Black Panther storyline was hinted in Age of Ultron and this superhero is expected to make debut in Civil war. Expect him to join the Avengers in fight against Thanos.
Benedict Cumberbatch got a fancy role just like his name. He will be playing Doctor Strange in MCU. The solo Doctor Strange film will release in 2016. But He will make his debut in Captain America Civil War. He is also expected to join the Avengers in Infinity Wars.
Hank Pym’s Ant-Man has been leader of Avengers in the comics. As MCU has released a solo film of Ant-Man starring Paul Rudd so expect that they have bigger plans for the character. Ant Man and Wasp are expected to reprise their roles in Captain America Civil war and they will continue their role in Avengers 3.
However there are certain Interesting questions revolving around the project. One of the biggest question is – Will there be Spider Man in Avengers 3 Infinity War? After the historic deal between Marvel Studios and Sony pictures, our favorite superhero Spider Man returned home and soon their were rumors about his role in MCU. Marvel stated in 2015, that they are going to show the teenage version of Peter parker’s Spider Man. As of now Asa Butterfield has been signed to become the next spider man. Spiderman is expected to make his debut in MCU in Civil War and he will have a larger role in Avengers 3.
Another Fan Favorite question is – Will Guardians of the Galaxy Join the Avengers team in Avengers Infinity War. Marvel has habit of leaving hints and let fans speculating about the outcomes. Star Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot crossed lines with the mad titan god in the 2014 blockbuster film Guardians of the Galaxy. They are probably going to face the Titan god once again in Avengers 3. So expect them to be there.
Marvel has stated that Thanos will not be the only villain in Avengers 3. So the ensemble cast of Avengers 3 is expected to increase in numbers.
Release Date of Avengers 3
Avengers 3 Infinity Wars Part 1 will be released on May 4 2018 and Avengers 3 Infinity War Part 2 will be released on May 3 2019.
Plot of Avengers 3
As the title suggest the story of Avengers 3 Infinity wars will revolve around the mad God Thanos coming to earth in search of final Infinity stone (which is in the head of Vision). As soon as he gets all control over all the infinity stones he will became as powerful as the creator of the universe. So Avengers will assemble once again to fight Thanos.
