Marvel's next Avengers movies, Infinity War Part 1 and 2, are getting retitled

Russo brothers say they're not directly connected

When Marvel announced its slate of movies through 2019 back in 2014, the Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1 and Infinity War - Part 2 were two of the films included. Based on the titles and the way the films were announced, it appeared as if Marvel was creating a two-part Avengers event.

In an interview with Uproxx, however, the Russo brothers (who directed Captain America: Civil War and will helm both Avengers features) said both movies would be getting new titles. The main reason, they said, was because although the films will both center on the Avengers, they won't be directly related to each other.

"The movies are two different movies," Joe Russo told Uproxx. "The intention is we will change it, we just haven't come up with the titles yet." His brother, Anthony, echoed the statement and called the current titles very misleading.

There's no word on when the new titles may be revealed, but there's a good chance Marvel will use its time at San Diego Comic-Con in July to make the announcement. Especially considering Disney won't have a D23 conference this year. There are still a few more Marvel movies that will be released before the new Avengers movies, however, including stand-alone movies for Doctor StrangeBlack Panther, and Captain Marvel.

The Russo Brothers' latest film, Civil War, hits theaters May 6. You can read Polygon's review here.
