With Phase Two of Marvel’s masterplan close to wrapping up with Avengers: Age of Ultron and the fast-approaching Ant-Man, we’re perhaps over-excitedly looking far into the future to the culmination of Phase Three with Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2. Speaking to Esquire, Chris Evans who plays Captain America has confirmed that those two films will indeed be shooting back-to-back – over a period of a whopping nine months. Here’s his quote, where he talks about not only Infinity War but Civil War:

‘You know, you plan around the Marvel responsibilities. You have to. We start [Captain America: Civil War] in a couple weeks, and then that shoots until August or something like that. August or September. Then I’ve got some downtime and I can do with it as I please. I don’t know if I want to take time off or go pursue another directing job or find a movie to act in or, you know, do whatever I’m creatively inclined to pursue or wait, relax, enjoy my life. And then we start the Infinity War, I think, some time in the third quarter. Fall or winter of 2016. That’s going to be like nine months to shoot both movies back to back.’

Clearly, this will take up a lot of time for not only Evans, but the other Avengers, too; but could the two Infinity War movies be the end for many of them? Will we finally see Iron Man take a bow, or see Thor return to Asgard for good? It’s difficult to imagine Marvel going any bigger than that storyline, in which big baddie Thanos (who’s cropped up through Marvel’s films as a shady background character) uses the Infinity Gauntlet to take over the Universe. Both parts will also be directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, who directed Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the upcoming Captain America: Civil War.

Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 is released May 4, 2018, and Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2 is released May 3, 2019.
