Thor and Captain America writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely to script Avengers: Infinity War
Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, writers of Thor: The Dark World and the Chronicles of Narnia movie series, have signed up to write the screenplay for the epic two-part Avengers: Infinity War.
Markus and McFeely, who have recently completed work on the screenplay for Captain America: Civil War, will begin work on the script immediately.
Speaking about the announcement, Kevin Feige, head of Marvel Studios, said: "Chris and Steve have been an integral part of the Marvel family since the early days of Phase One, 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."
The move reunites the pair with Anthony and Joe Russo, who will take over from Joss Whedon as director of Avengers. Part 1 of Avengers: Infinity War will be released into cinemas on Part 1 on May 4th in 2018, with Part 2 following on May 3rd in 2019.
