Expect the line-up of Marvel's Avengers on-screen team to be quite different by the time the two-part "Avengers: Infinity War" saga is all over.

Speaking at the Wizard World New Orleans convention this weekend, the film's directors Joe and Anthony Russo confirm that some previous supporting characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be upgraded to key players. Speaking with ComicBook.com, Joe says:

"I want to see some storytelling from some of the secondary characters. We're focusing on that right now with Infinity War while we're breaking into those movies, is which characters can we pull to the forefront who potentially haven't had their own 'A' story arc to this point. I think you'll see that the supporting Avengers are going to become primary Avengers."

That also means some Avengers might just shuffle off the mortal coil in the battle against Thanos. Joe Russo continues:

"Everything is finite, right? Nothing can last forever… It's cyclical. Some new Avengers in [future movies] are going to become prominent and then maybe some Avengers might not be around anymore..."

Expect a whole lot of heroes though at the start. Joe says:

"People will not be disappointed in the amount of characters in the movie. The concept of Infinity War is that the Marvel universe unites to battle the greatest threat to the world and universe that you've ever seen, and we're going to honor that concept... We have so many characters we're dealing with... we have a board with 67 characters on it. "

He also spoke about the film's more fantastical nature in the wake of his and his brother's two very grounded "Captain America" films. He says they plan to keep the psychological realism intact, even as the two-part saga stretches out into more daring territory:

"We're just going to approach the cosmic side with the same fervor that we did the earthbound work we've been doing. We also are going to work really hard to bring a psychological realism. We obviously can't bring a naturalism to it because it doesn't really exist outside of science fiction, but we can bring that psychological realism to it, to the characters, and that's going to be our focus…

Also, it's going to be our focus to explore the cosmic side, applying the same rules that we like to apply to the last two films that we've done. It ends up being the rules of physics always apply or apply as much as we can get them to apply based on what we're doing."

Indeed the plan is for their four Marvel films (both "Captain America" sequels and the "Infinity War" films) all have serious stakes with heavy emotional weight:

"For us, we really are firm believers in stakes. We like movies with high highs and low lows and we just feel like you get a more well-rounded experience in that type of film. Now that we're engaged in serialized storytelling, it starts with Winter Soldier and ends with the Infinity War movies. We feel it's very important that those four films, Civil War, and both Infinity War movies, have a very profound effect on the audience.

I think a lot of shocking things are going to happen, which is really interesting because you haven't had this kind of... maybe other than Harry Potter, I guess you can count the Bond series... but the kind of investment over a period of time with this many characters behaving in a universe. I think our job is to send you on a very profound experience between now and 2019 and it starts with Civil War. I don't know if people will be prepared for what this movie is going to include."

"Avengers: Infinity War Part 1" is scheduled for a May 4th 2018 release.

An unexpected change this year has been how Marvel Studios has shifted its upcoming “Avengers: Infinity War” saga from being a two-part film to two separate films which they now claim are only loosely linked, despite both going into production together and then releasing a year apart.

Talking up the imminent release of “Doctor Strange,” Marvel President Kevin Feige spoke with IGN about how the two upcoming “Avengers” movies differ from each other:

“There’s a reason we have publicly called the first one ‘Infinity War’ and the second one ‘Untitled,’ because the movies we were developing were not – certainly there’s a connection, there are with all our movies – but it’s not a first part and a second part. It’s a whole movie and a whole story, and then a whole movie and a whole story. That’s about all I can say. It’s certainly inspired by everything that has come before and everything that is hinted at before.

We will be intercutting a lot of stories in that movie in a lot of different locales, as it sort of is in the Avengers movies as well; who is facing off against who. In this movie, it’s going to be fun to mix that up. One of the things that’s great about the Infinity Gauntlet is everybody tried to go up against Thanos whether they were god-like powers or not, because that’s what Avengers do. The fun about those two movies that we’re doing essentially at the same time is everybody’s there.”

Feige was then pointedly asked if ‘everybody’ included Defenders characters like Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist? Feige only responded with: “Spoilers!”.

Avengers: Infinity War is set to become the most expensive movie ever made, according to a report from The Atlanta Business Chronicle.

“We now have on the lot down there now the largest film production ever with a $1 billion budget,” said Chick-fil-A CEO and Pinewood Atlanta Studios co-owner Dan Cathy. Though he could not name the production, Cathy is almost certainly talking about Avengers: Infinity War, which is filming at Pinewood. At $1 billion, that’s more than any other movie ever. In fact, it’s more than many movies, including rival superhero blockbuster Superman v. Batman, have grossed worldwide.

A Wikipedia list of the most expensive movies ever puts Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides at number one with a $378 million budget, followed by Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End at $300 million, and Avengers: Age of Ultron with $280 million. Of course, it’s possible that the $1 billion budget is for both Avengers: Infinity War and its untiled sequel, which are reportedly filming back to back. If that’s the case, $500 million is still easily the most expensive movie of all time, and the back-to-back filming budget of $1 billion would still top the entire Hobbit trilogy, which also filmed back to back and cost $623 million to make.

Even at that high price, Marvel is still likely to make a nice profit. The first Avengers film topped $1.5 billion in worldwide gross, and Infinity War promises even more star power, with the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy joining the rest of Marvel’s superheroes in the film. Age of Ultron grossed $1.4 billion worldwide, and Captain America: Civil War, which was essentially an unofficial Avengers series film, still made $1.15 billion.

“Avengers: Infinity War” will soon be wrapping up with those involved jumping right into work on the fourth “Avengers” film immediately after.

Talking “Spider-Man: Homecoming” with some press this week, Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige has teased that not all of Marvel’s heroes will live to see the fourth film or beyond. Asked by JoBlo if there will be any MCU heroes killed off in “Avengers: Infinity War” he says:

“Yes… We have another two years of hard work to even finish these movies, and they [the actors] have a lot of hard work to do, so that’s all we’re thinking about, is completing those and delivering on the promise of those. Where it goes beyond that, we’ll see.”

The crowd at D23 were reportedly brought to their feet in the wake of the first screening of footage from “Avengers: Infinity War” at the D23 convention in Anaheim this morning.

Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Don Cheadle, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, co-director Joe Russo and Marvel’s Kevin Feige were all on hand to introduce the footage which was exclusive for attendees and won’t go online.

The clip begins with the ‘Guardians’ travelling through a creepy section of space filled with debris when an unconscious Thor in his ‘Ragnarok’ garb hits the spaceship’s windshield. Mantis wakes him up, Thor looks around and sees Star-Lord (Pratt) and asks: “Who the hell are you guys?”

The main thrust of the footage sees a giant ship seemingly headed towards Earth on a collision course. Loki presents the Tesseract to someone, Peter Parker on a school bus sees his arm hair rising, and Gamora in The Collector’s shattered museum.

Dialogue includes Mantis saying: “Death follows him like a shadow,” Iron Man says: “We have one advantage… he’s coming to us” and Thanos says: “Fun really isn’t something one considers while balancing the universe… But this puts a smile on my face”. Thanos then steps out of a dark vortex – he’s arrived on Earth.

Cut to Star-Lord jumping around on platforms made by Strange, Captain America sporting a beard, Spider-Man with a new suit akin to the one glimpsed briefly in ‘Homecoming’, a shot of Vision in a cell, a Wakandan army with the Winter Soldier amongst them, Black Widow with blonde hair, someone in Hulkbuster armor.

There’s also a shot of an injured Peter Parker saying: “Tony, I’m sorry. I’m sorry” as Stark cradles his head, Thanos grabs Thor’s head and twists, Iron Man gets punched hard and the mad Titan says: “I know what it’s like to lose. To feel so desperately that you’re right. But you’ll fail all the same… Run from it, but destiny still arrives.”

Cut to the money shot as Thanos uses the Infinity Gauntlet to pull down part of a moon and turns it into a giant wave of meteors raining towards the planet everyone is standing on.

“Avengers: Infinity War” opens May 4th 2018.

Avengers Infinity War

The Avengers and their allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. Personally, I wouldn't change a thing from the film. It delivers the goods on every levels. It follows the comics but adapt it to the MCU, bringing in some great surprises.

Directors: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
Running time: 149 minutes
Released: 2018
