Captain America: Civil War co-director Joe Russo recently weighed in on the ongoing rumour about The Avengers teaming up with the Guardians of the Galaxy, to take down supervillain Thanos in Avengers 3. The best part is: He doesn't deny it.
"That is another one that we would have to reserve as a surprise," Russo told ComicBook, regarding the rumoured team-up. "But we will say this: People will not be disappointed in the amount of characters in the movie. The concept of Avengers: Infinity War is that the Marvel universe unites to battle the greatest threat to the world and universe that you've ever seen, and we're going to honor that concept."
So far, Thanos and the Infinity Stones have been the common thread between The Avengers and The Guardians so It's a very strong possibility that the two-part Avengers 3 - Infinity War will bring heroes from all the realms within the cosmos, together. Apart from that, who would not want to see Tony Stark's reaction when he meets Rocket!
Russo was also asked if he and his brother, Anthony, have thought about the cosmic nature of Avengers: Infinity War, and how it will differentiate from the very "Earthy" Captain America movies that they've directed so far. "We're just going to approach the cosmic side with the same fervor that we did the earthbound work we've been doing," stated the director.
Avengers: Infinity War will be directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, and is set to commence filming in October 2016 with Part 1 opening on 4 May 2018, and Part 2 on 3 May 2019.
