Russo Brothers INFINITY WAR – IT’S OFFICIAL GEEKS & FREAKS! The same guys that were behind the massive success of what was Captain America: The Winter Soldier & who are currently working on one of the most popular comics ever written – ‘Captain America: Civil War’, which is also the third film in Cap’s franchise, have taken the AVENGERS helm for 2018 & 2019’s Infinity War Parts 1 & 2!
It is so exciting to be writing about this, especially during this time while Marvel is in the culmination of what is to be the Super Nova in Marvel Universe– INFINITY WAR!
The entire two part Avengers event, which consists of a six (6) issue comic book series (The Infinity War – 1992) revolves around the mad titan, THANOS who in addition to being the most powerful super villain in the universe, is also in love with the embodiment of Death herself. Well… Like most girls, Death plays hard to get, so in order to catch her attention, Thanos will have to not only concoct, but flawlessly execute a super evil mamma jamma scheme that will in turn win him Death’s heart. What better way to wipe out as many lives as possible than to wipe out an entire planet or more than that, an entire galaxy? For those of you who have yet to pick up a comic book, but who love to watch superhero inspired movies – Guardians of the Galaxy – Case & Point, Infinity Stone. Thanos created a golden gauntlet, which houses all six (6) stones. If one stone can destroy an entire planet, six stones would make Thanos a very omnipotent titan.
Infinity War Part I & II will officially close out Phase III of the Marvel cinematic universe, but between directing three Marvel titles, producing the Spiderman reboot, and being ‘Shot Callers’ on Ghostbusters spinoff starring Channing Tatum, how the heck will the brothers prevent a four-tire blowout by the time they get to Infinity War? Will the creative mojo that took Captain America: The Winter Soldier to the top in 2014 still be seen in Infinity War? Unlike Joss Whedon who wrote and directed Avengers I & II, the Russo Bros will only be directing Infinity War Parts I & II. Whedon was pretty vocal of the fact that his three (3) years of mapping out Avengers I & II was extremely challenging, and we’re talking two (2) films in three (3) years. Whoever has been gifted the task of writing these two films will have to bring together everything that occurred in phase II and add it to everything that’s coming to light in phase III in order to successfully execute Infinity War 1 & 2.
