Marvel Studios has released some new posters for “Avengers: Infinity War” today, this one splitting up the team into five different one-sheets with each representing the color of one of the Infinity Stones that have been found so far.
Once again though, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye is missing from the new one-sheets, though so is the film’s main character Thanos. Are both being saved for a soul stone colored poster coming later? Check out the posters in the gallery at the bottom of the article which also includes textless versions of those recent six Empire magazine covers.
That’s not all though from the film today. The movie’s screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have confirmed the cameo appearance by Thanos at the end of “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” in which he takes the Infinity Gauntlet and says “I’ll do it myself,” is essentially being ignored. They tell Slashfilm: “Not our movie… We’ve all sat there and went, ‘What the hell is he talking about? Where was he when he did that?'”.
The pair also say Marvel fans have no real clue as to what’s coming in the fourth film. McFeely tells ComicBook:
“We know pretty much what’s going on in Avengers 3. You’ve been told who’s the bad guy and what he wants for several movies and it’s not going to change: that’s what’s going to happen. You run it in the best possible way with twists along the way, but you have no idea what Avengers 4 is. Nobody knows, and that’s what makes me particularly excited. I look all the time on the internet: people have no idea. (Avengers) 4 resolves the intrigue of Infinity War; (the movies are) clearly linked, but they almost seem to belong to two different genres. We did not want to cut a film in half and say, ‘Pay now and come back in a year for the rest!’ These are two very different stories, on a tonal and structural level.”
“Avengers: Infinity War” opens everywhere on April 27th.
