When the main actors making up The Avengers signed the Marvel Studios contracts, it was for a total of six films, with the majority exiting the MCU following Avengers: Infinity War.
However, when the Russo Bros. project was extended into two movies, many deals ad to be re-negotiated. Chris Evans, who plays Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, was recently asked by The Telegraph why he decided to do another movie, to which he responded:
“I had six films in my Marvel contract, so I could have said after the third Avengers I was done, but they wanted to make the third and fourth Avengers films as a two-parter. They said they had so many other characters to fit in – Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Ant Man – and couldn’t get them all into one movie. [I agreed] because it made sense. It’s going to wrap everything up.”
Joe and Anthony Russo are directing the next two Avengers movies, which are currently in production. The films are said to shake up the status quo of the Marvel Cinematic Universe - but we'll have to wait until 2018 to find out just how much things will change.
Are you ready for what's coming, Marvelites?
