Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely believe that they cannot finish the script of the “Avengers 3” movie. Is the project shelved?
The answer is no. Marvel fans can breathe freely! The “Avengers 3” movie is not cancelled. However, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are not sure about how things will pan out in the movie. Things will be clear only after all the other phase three Marvel movies are finalised.
“And you know, we write it, we assume when we write it and rewrite it and rewrite it, as more information comes in, we will be adjusting,” explained Markus. “When we’re turning in the first draft, it’s absolutely that, a first draft, and we’ll go through a lot before we get to November,” he added.
Movie Web states that the phase three consists of “Doctor Strange” releasing on November 4, followed by “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” in May 2017, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” on July 7, 2017, “Thor: Ragnarok” in November next year, and “Black Panther” in 2018.
“The Avengers: Infinity War Part I” hits the theatres in May 2018. This will be followed by “Ant-Man and The Wasp” and “Captain Marvel.” Consequently, “Avengers: Infinity War Part II” will take on the screens in May 2019 after “Captain Marvel.”
Cinema Blend explains that the screenwriters have completed the second draft of “The Avengers: Infinity War.” However, with movies scheduled up to the release of Part I, the duo needs to have regular updates and important conversations with their filmmaker colleagues.
“Some of it is informed guesswork. Some of it is constantly pestering people who are making those [other] movies to tell us what they’re doing,” said McFeely. “And sometimes it is us going, ‘It would be massively beneficial if this person could be in this place at the end of your movie. I don’t care what he does in your movie, but by the end of it …” he trailed off.
