Avengers 3 & 4 Will Have 'Intense' Stakes, Reveals Co-Director Joe Russo

Both films would have a significant impact on the characters we know and love.


With a plan put in motion way back in The Avengers coming to fruition in Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos will make his move to possess the Infinity Stones, cosmically powered, concentrated ingots forged out of the birth of the universe itself. With almost all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s heroes uniting to oppose Thanos, Joe Russo, who directs Avengers: Infinity War alongside brother Anthony, warns fans to prepare for an “intense” experience:

“You know, with Winter Soldier and with Civil War, my brother and I like stakes. We believe in stakes for these movies, we fight for stakes on these films, and I think people should be prepared for a very intense experience in both Avengers 3 and Avengers 4. And they should be prepared for some pretty big surprises.”

The directors made headlines last year during an event to promote Captain America: Civil War, when they revealed that Infinity War will have 67 characters, although they later clarified that isn't the exact count. Still, the directors have said in the past that Infinity War will bring together the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, although it still remains to be seen if any of the TV characters from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or the Marvel Netflix shows such as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist will be joining the fight as well. Regardless, the first movie has wrapped, and we found out that the second movie will be starting production quite soon.

Avengers 3 & 4 were originally supposed to film as one massive production cut into two chapters, but the logistics of that were seemingly too complicated both in front of and behind the cameras, so it was decided to do two films, with two separate productions.

Avengers: Infinity War will be in theaters on May 4, 2018 ; Avengers 4 will follow on May 3, 2019.
