At the end of “Captain America: Civil War,” the Avengers were split into two separate teams: Iron Man’s United Nations-approved group and Captain America’s underground team. Since the two never fully reconciled, many fans have wondered how that will impact the next “Avengers” film, “Infinity War”: will there be two teams going in? Will one part focus on one team, and the second on another?
“Civil War” screenwriters Chris Markus and Steve McFeely — who will also pen “Avengers: Infinity War” — addressed this concern. According to them, “Infinity War” will juggle its characters in much the same way as “Civil War.”
“When outlining [Infinity War], we certainly had those conversations,” shared McFeely. “In the same way that in ‘Civil War’ not everyone has the same amount of scenes or lines, I think that you can assume that — with so many characters — we’ll have to be as rigorous. We’ll say, well, these people will have larger stories and these people will have smaller stories and hopefully they can flip in some cases. I know of a few right off the top of my head that have a small part here and a bigger part there.”
“The people in the background in one might come to the foreground in the second one,” Markus added. “There will be 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 is very good about hiring good actors.”
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan and more, “Captain America: Civil War” — the next installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — is now in theaters.
