So big it has to be two parts!

How big of a threat does Thanos pose, you ask? Big enough to span two epic films, beginning with Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War Part 1” on May 4, 2018, and concluding in Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War Part 2” on May 3, 2019 for one massive cinematic event.

I think they will push the running time limit to two and a half hour hours each. The After Credits scene in one will more than likely be a preview to part two. I figured in order to tell the full story this either had to be two parts or a like a six hour film.

That Thanos with the Infinity Gauntlet pic... I... I think I need a second to regain my composure :eek:.

But glad it's confirmed that we're finally getting the Infinity Gauntlet storyline in Avengers 3 parts one and two, and that we won't have to wait too long to see the Thanos storyline concluded :).

Though this does make me wonder how the Stone collection will progress for Phase 3 up until the Infinity War movie...

Totally made the right call splitting this into two movies. There are a metric ton of characters to include and I can't imagine an even remotely satisfactory resolution in only two hours.

It feels like the climax of the entire MCU up until this point. Can't wait, this should be incredibly epic, and I'm glad we're not dragging Thanos into Phase Four or beyond.

Two movies that seem to be finales back to back like the Hunger Games, Divergent, or Twilight! Those movies did the same thing, back to back finales. Avengers rocks!

So today's big news is that Joe and Anthony Russo are directing the next two Avengers flicks. They were fine on Cap 2, and I don't think Whedon will be missed (too much) with these guys at the helm. Given how much Marvel is giving them to do, they'll certainly be leaving their mark on the MCU in the years to come...

It must be weird filming scenes in 2016 for a film that won't come out until 2019 (well, part 2 anyway).
The Wachowski's and Peter Jackson did so with their films. You basically film all at once, and seeing how most films are shot out of order, they can manipulate for spoiler threat. Even for the cast.

Btw, doesn't this news belong here:

6/23: Spoiler TV is reporting that the Magus will be one of the villains of the movie.

9/30: So Feige seems to indicate there will be an ending of sorts for certain parts of the MCU and that this may be the last time we see certain Avengers.

Well, I think it definitely is an end to some version of the team that we've come to know as The Avengers. Who knows exactly what's going to happen yet in that film, but I think this version of that team -- and I think we started to hint at it at the end of "Age of Ultron," that the team will be evolving. And one of the things we love in the comics is that the roster is always changing. That new people are coming on to the team, and that you could pick up an Avengers book ten years later and you don't recognize people on the cover. But the ideas and the ideals and things that make the Avengersthe Avengers, still exist, and I think that's part of what this culmination will be. We're seeing this version of the team doing this thing to save the universe, the galaxy, however you want to put it, and we'll kind of see where that goes. It's not the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but I think it is the end of part of it, for sure. We're still trying to sort out which parts.

I expected Infinity War would be the big culmination of all the characters and concepts built-up from the beginning of Phase 1, so not surprised that seems to be the case.

As far as who we might see the last of...I think it would probably be the perfect opportunity for RDJ to finally step down as Iron Man, especially since that's seemed to be in the cards for a while, and it might be the perfect chance to "hand off the reins" as it were in the final movie, all the more fitting considering he kicked it all off :).

Evans seems like he's still down with continuing as Cap, though I'm not sure if that'll mean more Cap movies or just a continued presence in Avengers movies. Maybe a chance to direct a movie himself might factor into things :cool:.

I want to say Hemsworth would stay on as Thor, since there's still probably tons they can do with Asgard and the mythology of the Nine Realms beyond Ragnarok, but they might not necessarily need Thor to do it. I doubt there would be much issue keeping him around though ;).

I don't know about Hulk...they seem happy with Ruffalo, and he enjoys the role, but there's only so much they can do with him when he just appears in Avengers movies o_O.

I doubt we'd see the last of Widow, if only because people would then continue to complain about the lack of a Black Widow movie :p.

I think any of the New Avengers probably have more staying power compared to the original six, even if some of them debuted in early Phase 1/2, because of their "newness."

I was just about to say "Where's Gridman?" on that Crunchyroll streaming thread.
DISH had recent upgrades on the 61.5 orbital slot this early morning. My signal strengths got increased and transponders were moved to another.

How Cartoon Network and TBS moved to other transponders. :P
What I love from the commercial studio Psyop, is the Cricket Wireless critters (known as the Cricketters) in different shapes and colored in Green, Yellow and Blue. So imaginative and cute! :)
Most Europeans here don't know about the old Grinch Christmas special. Even in Portugal.
When Is the Nickelodeon Highlights usually up for December? I Was just wondering...
