It was something that was predicted months ago but now Marvel has confirmed the news. Joe And Anthony Russo are set to direct the upcoming sequels, Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2. Joss Whedon has stated many times before that although he has loved helming both Avengers movies, the experience has left him exhausted and he wants to explore other projects of his own.
No word yet on who will write the scripts for the next installments which will premiere on April 27, 2018 and April 26, 2019. Before that, the Russos will shoot Captain America: Civil War which will arrive on cinemas on April 29 next year.
Whedon, on the other hand, has also confirmed that there won’t be a post-credits scene in Ultron:
“There is nothing at the very end. And that’s not a fake-out. We want people to know so they don’t sit there for 10 minutes and then go: ‘Son of a bitch! I’ll kill them!’
The director explained the reasons behind this decision:
“It didn’t seem to lend itself in the same way, and we wanted to be true to what felt right. The first rule of making a sequel is take the best moments and do something else. Don’t do the Indiana Jones gun trick again differently. Just go somewhere else. Don’t try to hit the same highs, because people will sense it.”
Are you looking forward to future Avengers movies?
