‘Avengers: Infinity War’: Screenwriters Polishing Third Draft
It seems like the writers of the much awaited Marvel’s “Avengers: The Infinity War,” – Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have spilled the beans on how the scripts of the upcoming pair of sequel films are coming along.
Markus and McFeely have shared that they are working simultaneously on both the movies and that they are on the third draft and the second draft of “Avengers: Infinity War,” and the untitled follow-up respectively.
“On any given day, you’re only working on one but that doesn’t mean that next week, you aren’t working on the other one,” the co-writer Markus said in an interview with Yahoo! Movies.
McFeely and Markus also noted that there are constant changes to the scripts as “notes are coming in and all sorts of production stuff is coming in” and that it will continue to be the same way for at least the next few months. The writers also discussed how they, along with the directors Anthony and Joe Russo and a few more executives, keep track of the cast of ever-expanding MCU and the way they deal with any character’s death.
Back in April, director Anthony Russo said in an interview with Den of Geek that the production process will be more intense on “Infinity War,” as they have to tell the stories from a multi-perspective. He added that he along with his brother are likely taking an unusual approach to the production of the upcoming movie titles. “One piece of the process is really important to us: that we watch and cut scenes every 48 hours,” he said.
Anthony also added that it is going to be a “very difficult, long shoot,” as the entire team will “constantly be shooting and assessing and reshooting and assessing.”
“Avengers: Infinity War,” will hit the theaters on May 4, 2018, while the sequel is scheduled to open in theaters on May 3, 2019.
