Like how Westerns once ruled Hollywood, the superhero film is quickly taking over our cinema screens, almost every other film seeming to be based on comic books heroes.
Following the likes of upcoming releases Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and Black Panther, the third and fourth Avengers films will hit cinema screens, the two films previously titled Infinity War Parts 1 and 2.
It has since been confirmed that both films are being retitled accordingly, the first part being called Avengers: Infinity War, while the second remains as an untitled Avengers film.
What this means for the continuing story between the two is unclear, but it remains unlikely any alterations to the story are being made.
Previously, Joe Russo, who directed Captain America: Winter Soldier and Civil War along with his brother Anthony, said: “The two movies are two very different movies.” He went on to say that the titles “Part 1 and Part 2” were “misleading”.
