In the wake of Captain America: Civil War, many have wondered whether the end of the film indicated that there was going to be separate Avengers teams. Moreso, with Infinity War having two parts, they’re also wondering if each film will focus on certain characters. Infinity War writers Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely talked with IGN and discussed the challenge they are having in keeping all the characters no only in the same film, but balanced in terms of scenes and dialogue.
“When outlining it we certainly had those conversations. I mean in the same way, that in Civil War not everyone has the same amount of scenes or lines, I think you can assume that with so many characters we’ll have to be as rigorous right? Where we say well these people will have sort of larger stories and these people will have smaller stories, and hopefully, they can flip in some cases. I know a few right off the top of my head that have a small part here and bigger part here.”
Markus built on that, saying: “Yeah, the people in the background in one will come to the foreground in the second one. You know there will be moments where every last damn person who is still alive will be in the same room, and those are just a nightmare to write because Marvel, being very good about hiring very good actors who like, the 15th person there has two Oscars, and it’s like oh my god. So yeah, it’s crazy.”
