With Avengers: Infinity War set to go into production early in the New Year, a casting call has arrived online which claims to offer up details of the main cast for the Marvel superhero epic.
Now, it should be noted that this is not official from Marvel, and casting calls are often inaccurate; this could just be a case of the agency taking a guess based on who they expect to appear in the film – so any Spider-Man or Falcon fans out there, don’t start panicking just yet!

Chris Pratt as Star-Lord
Sebastian Stan as The Winter Soldier

Disney has confirmed that it will make only one Avengers: Infinity movie rather than the two it had announced previously.
Disney said on Friday that it still plans to release Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War as planned on May 4, 2018. But what was slated to be the second part in that story, Avengers: Infinity War Part II, has now been renamed as an Untitled Avengers project while retaining the May 3, 2019 release date.
The two “Infinity War” movies were announced together in October, 2014, with both directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. Two months ago, the Russo brothers told the Uproxx site that the third and fourth Avengers were being retitled in part to clarify that the films would be two separate films rather than one large film split in half.
Production of “Avengers: Infinity War” is expected to begin later this year. The Russos are directing from a script by the writing team of Christopher Marcus and Stephen McFeely with a back story based on immensely powerful Infinity Gems described in various Marvel stories.

Marvel Studios officially announced today that Robert Downey Jr. is returning as Tony Stark/Iron Man in both The Avengers 2 and The Avengers 3. However, the agreement was just a two-picture deal, which means that Iron Man 3 will likely be the last of his stand-alone movies.
The deal falls in line with a story from last month, that revealed the actor was in early talks to come back for The Avengers 2 and The Avengers 3, but had no interest in a potential Iron Man 4. Iron Man 3 was the last movie under Robert Downey Jr.’s Marvel deal. We also reported in April that the actor wants to “retire” as Tony Stark/Iron Man, but he didn’t say when that might happen.
Joss Whedon is writing the screenplay and directing The Avengers 2, which will include the cast from Marvel’s The Avengers, along with characters never before seen in Marvel movies, such as Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Production is slated to begin in March 2014, so stay tuned for more updates from this Marvel Phase Two ensemble.
The Avengers 2 comes to theaters May 1st, 2015 and stars Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Mark Ruffalo. The film is directed by Joss Whedon.
The Avengers 3 comes to theaters in 2019 and stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson. (Source)
