The Avengers film franchise has become one of the best film franchises in history because of how it blended several other superhero films together to form epic film adventures. The Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, and Captain American films have been very popular and successful in their own right. So imagine how big of a film it is to blend all those characters together in one film. Anyway, both Avengers films have broken box office records and we’re only halfway through in the series. There are two more upcoming films and both will be halves of the Avengers: Infinity War. The first half was reported to release in at least two years. In the meantime, what do we know about it?

  • The Enemy

First of all, what we know is that the enemy will be Thanos, who is said to be one of the most powerful beings in the universe if not the most powerful. Thanos, the Mad Titan, is said to be in possession of several infinity stones one of which is his iconic Infinity Gauntlet. Even without the stones, Thanos is already powerful in his own right and could be physically stronger than even the Hulk himself. For all intents and purposes, he is a ‘god’ in the Marvel universe especially with the infinity stones in his possession.

With all that, we now know that the Avengers will have to pull-off all of the stops in order to at least stand a chance against the Mad Titan. They will get more allies in future stand-alone films so at the very least they won’t lack the numbers to face Thanos.

 

  • No More Captain

There have been speculations that the death of Captain America is inevitable in the upcoming Civil War film. Steve Rogers, as he is also known, will probably be dead by the time the Avengers go toe-to-toe with Thanos but the mantle of Captain America is set to be passed on to Steve’s bestfriend Bucky Barnes. Adding up to the speculations is the fact that Chris Evans’ (Steve Rogers’ actor) contract is only up until Civil War.

  • The Infinity Stones Will All Make an Appearance

From the title itself, it won’t take a genius to figure out that the infinity stones will play the biggest role in the upcoming Avengers film. The thing we can take out is that all of them will probably be together in the two-part film unlike in previous Marvel films where only one infinity stone appears.

 

  • New Heroes

As we know from the previous Avengers film, some of the heroes may not return for the final films (particularly Iron Man and Hulk). But Avengers won’t be short of new heroes either because Marvel is set to unveil a new generation of characters for Phase Three of the Avengers franchise. The Guardians of the Galaxy already have history with the Mad Titan from their first film. So they might ally themselves with earth’s mightiest heroes. The Ant-Man film has already been released and he might also join the roster. Among others who are set to be the new faces of the Avengers are Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Dr. Strange, and the Inhumans.
