>JOE RUSSO: "Everything is finite, right? Nothing can last forever. It's cyclical. Some New Avengers in Phase 4 are going to become prominent and then maybe some Avengers might not be around anymore. So, we'll see how all this plays out but you have to treat every character with respect. I think it's interesting that if you've seen four or five movies with the lead character having an arc, 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, asking 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."
Which lines up with previous rumors the first movie would focus on a ragtag team led by Doctor Strange.
>this will lead to casuals bitching about 'not muh Avengers'
It would be nice for some of the other characters to get the spotlight after years of Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor pretty much taking up most of the MCU spotlight, I think a ragtag team lead by Strange would be kickass
This and add Scarlet Witch too.
I for one welcome our new Avengers overlords. Cap is my favorite character, but I want to see others get the spotlight too. Also, I'm tired of Iron Man and Thor hasn't impressed me yet. Black Widow and Hawkeye already overstayed their welcome.
>steve will get his shit fucked up in cw
>no more fightan for me son
>gives shield to winged nigger
>ANAL Avengers cumfirmed!
Dr. Strange might feature the Darkforce in some fashion as well. This is from a recent cbr article:
>When asked if Isodyne Energy is connected to the Darkforce, Fazekas answered affirmatively. "Basically, Isodyne is a company that we invented based in part on real life companies like Radiodyne or General Atomic or the beginnings of the Jet Propulsion Lab -- all of which were in L.A. in the '40s, and were developing the space program and were developing nukes," explained Fazekas. "That's what Isodyne is, and what you'll learn is they were involved in the nuclear testing out in the desert when they were testing the, at the time they were calling it the atom bomb -- and one of these tests didn't go as expected. You'll learn more about that in Season 2, but they stumble upon what people in the Marvel Universe will know as Darkforce, but because they've never seen it before they just name it Zero Matter. That's our tie-in to the 'Doctor Strange' universe, and also to 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' because you've seen it in 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' as well."
Steve will die at the end of CW, Bucky and Falcon'll split the CA mantle for everything up to and including IW Part 1.
Come part 1s end someone'll magic Steve back to life and we'll have Steve with Mjolnir and Tony with the Infinity Gauntlet fighting Thanos by the end of Part 2.
Nah, both Scarjo and Renner seem to be done with their parts. They'll leave along with the others.
Even now people make fun of them for being useless, imagine how they'll be with heavy hitters like Doctor Strange, Scarlet Witch, Captain Marvel. They have no place on the team anymore.
Some more stuff about Infinity War.
>“The stakes of both Civil War and the Avengers: Infinity War movies are gonna be very high, and there will be a price to pay for the characters,” Joe Russo said. “And that’s the whole point of cumulative storytelling. We’re going to go on emotional journeys with these characters. We’ve got a lot invested in the emotion. We have a responsibility to be mindful of how these people feel about the characters and, at the same time, we also have a responsibility to carry through on the storytelling. As filmmakers, we believe in stakes. You can’t have good storytelling without strong stakes. So, there will be a price to pay, there will be a price to pay in Civil War. There will be characters who suffer in that movie, and he will come out of that movie and never be the same. And in Infinity War the stakes will be raised to a whole new level. People should expect to be shocked when they see those movies.”
So Thanos BTFO's the jobbers and then the "real" avengers save the day in part 2.
It should be the end of the Tony dicksucking considering IW seems to be the ending point for most of the Phase 1 actors/characters. Which means you just know something like thats going to happen
We never got the pic related line up in the first place
So it never was.
The other franchises are reaching the third movie so they need to start making movies for other characters, Infinity War will help establish the other characters to the public so they can make their solo movies after that
Strange looks like its going to be disaster Harry potter fantastic beast tier shit.
Knowing they will dial the magic down in favor of a bond tier gov/military espionage film
Which is what this entire franchise is all about.
>Tony combines Nova Corp tech with Gauntlet/gems to create Infinity Armor
>think you'll see that the supporting Avengers are going to become primary Avengers.
Doesn't mean we won't get the current 'primary avengers'. Team will obviously change with all these new characters we are about to get.
>Captain Marvel (when she joins)
>Captain America (Bucky?)
So, 67 characters huh?
I tried listing characters that might appear. I got exactly 67 by coincidence, but some of these are probably not going to appear (like Betty Ross, Dave and Kurt, etc.). And a few more from the upcoming movies will probably appear. So what will be the full list?
>Doctor Strange villain
>Peter Quill’s father
They have 67 characters to choose from, they're not using 67 characters. Plus 67 characters is a random made-up number anyway.
This is almost as bad as that time /co/ didn't get a simple joke and insisted the Punisher was in TWS.
I think they straight up said they want Strange to be their new Iron Man since RDJ is leaving.
Which makes sense since they got Cucumber to play him and his hoard of teenage girls will follow him anywhere.
>Nearing the end of Infinity War part 2
>Heroes have stolen the gauntlet with the gems and need to get it to the reactor of Thanos' ship or something, toss it in and destroy it
>Steve is the only one that can wear it but it is boarderline killing/possessing him. Anyone else would have already been consumed with power.
>Steve collapses with the reactor less than a hundred meters out, as the entire ship is falling apart
>Bucky grabs him
I can't carry the gauntlet Steve, BUT I CAN CARRY YOU
So the rumor that Cap dies, Tony retires, Thor and Hulk are stuck off planet after Civil War is true. That would put them out of action for the first one, the team gets their ass kicked by Thanos, original team comes back to save the day.
Tony either dies or retires
Cap dies or is sent back in time to be with Bucky forever
Hulk and Widow fuck off
Thor fucks off
Hawkeye might stick around just to save face
Captain Marvel is the leader
Black Panther is the money man
Spider-Man is the bruiser
Ant-Man is the comedien
Wasp is the girl
Falcon gets the shield and is new Captain
Doctor Strange is the weirdo who comes when needed
Id watch it senpai
maybe like the comic that already did it and laid a blueprint to follow since this isn't an original baseless story? Fucking movie casuals, I swear. most characters dont even speak, its not difficult to just have a main cast and have other established people appearing.
I really have a feeling it is. Personally I think its a bad idea to try and shoehorn the remaining gems in the movies between now and then. I mean, can't Thanos already have one or two? I refuse to believe he's let Loki borrow one if it was the only one he had.
As long as Infinity War Part 2 is a clusterfuck of every hero ever coming out to fight Thanos then I don't care what happens before that. I want to see Daredevil throwing sticks at him and everything.
>As long as Infinity War Part 2 is a clusterfuck of every hero ever coming out to fight Thanos
This so much. This is literally the only thing I want from the movies. The entire MCU in the same place at the same time battling the bad guys.
>they do that scene in Avengers where they are in a circle and the camera pass through all of them but now with the entire MCU
My dick would explode in the cinema.
Imagine SDCC for the IW and JL movies
>The Seven + whoever (like BC and I assume GA) all on stage for WB
>The clusterfuck of people on Marvel's side
I assume we'll get a Carol announcement then if not before July.
If Wanda actually does magic CQC in Civil War since she's been training with Steve, I'm going to be so hype. I'm really hoping that when she leaves in CW, she goes straight to Strange.
