Avengers Defenders possible crossover

When it was announced that Marvel would be expanding the MCU on Netflix by airing four series based on heroes of New York City, it was hoped that such an expansion would mean that said heroes would appear in the final two Avengers filmssoon to be retitled. But finding a way to fit 67 characters into the two films would be problematic and highly unlikely to happen.

But having all the characters from the films and television would be a true comic book movie event of epic proportions. Now that Captain America: Civil War has had its hugely successful opening weekend, writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely recently talked about the possibility of the crossover happening in the two upcoming Avengers: Infinity War films once more. Check out what they had to say below.

Captain America Civil War Team Cap

Captain America: Civil War finds our Steve Rogers leading a newly formed Avengers to continue to protect the world from lethal threats. But no good deed goes unpunished, and when a routine mission to apprehend a terrorist goes horribly wrong, the United Nations installs a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. This fractures the team, with Steve running a team who is against government oversight and Tony Stark who makes a surprising decision to fully support the system of checks and balances.

Last week we shared the top ten things we learned Team Iron Man said at the Captain America: Civil War press conference. From character evolutions to the new technological advances to telling a more engrossing story, Marvel Studios’ latest film is already being praised as the best comic book movie ever.

Now we have the top ten things that Team Captain America. Check out what Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Jeremy Renner, and director Joe Russo had to say from their panel at the film’s press conference below.

Thanos

For Marvel Studios, Avengers: Infinity War is so massive it had to be split into two parts. The Russo brothers (Anthony and Joe) will be reteaming with their Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely on the two-part epic.

While the Russos let slip and then backtracked on the idea that there will be 67 characters in the film, Markus and McFeely went on to clarify even further how many characters will be facing The Mad Titan. According to them, there won’t be 67 characters but Thanos will be getting lots of good screen time. More on the story below.

There are no successful superhero film franchises under one roof like the ones over at Marvel Studios. Time and time again the studio has repeated its success, risen to beat expectations, and even found ways to reinvent itself to keep their respective franchises fresh and engaging. These sequels are no longer sequels, they are political thrillers, fantasy adventures, buddy cops comedies, heist capers, space operas, and much more to come.

Now the studio will christen Phase 3 of the MCU with a bold new storytelling direction. Starting off with Captain America: Civil War, where our heroes and their beliefs come into conflict as Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) will engage in an ideological battle that will determine the fate of the Avengers.

Falcon Won’t Become Cap In ‘Captain America 3’

Anthony Mackie The Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Marvel Comics has made a few changes to their characters in the past few weeks. It first started out with revealing that Thor will be a woman. Series writer Jason Aaron emphasized, “This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before.” Then it was announced that The Falcon would become the new Captain America. While these changes show how progressive the comic book giant can be, there was a lot of speculation on how the changes would impact the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially since many of the actors’ contracts will expire after The Avengers 3.

It would make sense to make these changes in the films to coincide with the changes in comics. But, wait just one moment. Like any adaptation, the films don’t always follow their source materials to the letter, and screenwriters and directors are always taking creative liberties with these comic book properties. That’s why Captain America 3 scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely say that we shouldn’t expect to see Falcon become Captain America in the next sequel, but they don’t want fans to give up hope on the idea either. Hit the jump for more.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier doesn’t open in theaters for another two weeks, but that isn’t stopping fans from talking about what looks to be one of the most entertaining films of year. Having already seen it, I can assure you the sequel is one of the best superhero films ever. So to keep this from being spoilery, we will jump ahead to the next sequel, Captain America 3, which in itself is an exciting date if things continue on this path.

That’s because fans can’t even stop about thinking what it would be like to see Captain America go up against Batman Vs. Superman on May 6, 2016.
