The Marvel Cinematic Universe is keeping it in the family on the next installment in the Avengers franchise.
After much speculation, the studio has confirmed that Captain America: The Winter Soldier scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely will be re-teaming up with the Russo brothers and writing both of the Infinity War films. The duo has been with Marvel since 2011′s Captain America: The First Avenger and are currently working on next year’s Captain America: Civil War. If that’s not enough to get you hyped, they’re also the masterminds behind Agent Carter, which was just renewed for a second season by ABC.
Producer Kevin Feige released a statement saying:
Chris and Steve have been an integral part of the Marvel family since the early days of Phase 1, and their work speaks for itself. We couldn’t be more excited to have them with us to help guide the Avengers through their biggest story yet.
In addition to the above, Markus and McFeely co-wrote all three of the Chronicles of Narnia big screen adaptations and 2013′s Thor: The Dark World.
The Avengers: Infinity War marks the epic conclusion of Marvel’s Phase 3. Part 1 will hit theaters May 4, 2018, and Part 2 will follow on May 3, 2019. Both movies will be shot entirely in IMAX, making them the first in Hollywood’s history to exclusively use the format.
