The film was announced in October 2014 as Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1. The Russo brothers came on board to direct in April 2015 and by May, Markus and McFeely had signed on to write the script for the film, which drew inspiration from Jim Starlin‘s 1991 The Infinity Gauntlet comic and Jonathan Hickman‘s 2013 Infinity comic.
