The writing team of Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely is all set to begin work on the screenplay of Marvel's much-anticipated two-part film, “Avengers: Infinity War.” Markus and McFeely have been lending their writing talent to the studio since the inception of Phase 1 films. They have written the screenplays of films such as “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Captain America: Civil War.”
“Avengers: Infinity War” will be set after the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” and producer Kevin Feige is thrilled to have Markus and McFeely on board. “We couldn’t be more excited to have them with us to help guide the Avengers through their biggest story yet,” he said in an official statement, Marvel reports.
Meanwhile, the film will reportedly be shot on Imax cameras -- marking the first time a Hollywood feature film will be shot entirely on the new Imax/Arri 2D digital camera. The decision to shoot the film on Imax was made by directing duo Joe Russo and Anthony Russo.
“We felt that the best way to exploit the scale and scope required to close out the final chapter of these three phases was to be the first films shot entirely on the Imax/Arri Digital camera," the Russo brothers said in a statement, Hollywood Reporter wrote.
Moreover, the Russo brothers are also helming “Captain America: Civil War” and will reportedly try their hands on the Imax camera for the action sequences of the film. “Avenger: Infinity War, Part 1” is scheduled to be released May 4, 2018, whereas “Avengers: Infinity War, Part 2" will hit screens May 3, 2019.
The cast of "Avengers: Infinity War" is yet to be finalized. However, it is expected that many actors from “Captain America: Civil War” will appear in the film. Chris Evans, known for playing Captain America in Marvel films, has also revealed in his recent interview with MTV that “Captain America: Civil War” will be a “jump off” to the “Infinity War” films.
