Marvel released a behind-the-scenes video on Avengers: Infinity War earlier today. Filming apparently has been going on since January 23rd. The video has Robert Downey Jr., Chris Pratt, Tom Holland, Kevin Feige, the Russo brothers and more in it.
They say they’ll be filming for a year, so I’m assuming they’ll be filming Avengers 3 and 4 back to back, which makes sense because they are released exactly a year apart.
Kevin Feige talked about how the film will be a culmination of the entirety of the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far.
“Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe as started in May of 2008 with the release of Iron Man 1, and it really is an unprecedented culmination of a series of films interlinked together, which at the time had never been done before. And for us the important thing is making it all come together. We know they’re gonna face Thanos; we’ve been setting that up since Avengers 1. How do you do that in a way that is unexpected, that pits the Avengers against somebody who is more powerful than anyone they’ve faced, and yet make them completely unprepared to face them? Well, tear them apart, which is why we did Civil War before Infinity War… Thanos shows us why he’s the biggest, the best, the baddest villain that we’ve ever had, and the most frightening villain that the Avengers have ever faced.”
He also went on to confirm that the Avengers would meet the Guardians of the Galaxy.
I like the approach thy have on this film. I believe that this will mark the end of this “era” of Marvel films, it’ll probably be Downey Jr.’s last along with some of the other Avengers. The Russo brothers directing is even more promising because of their work in Winter Soldier and Civil War.
I really hope this movie is as epic as they say it will be. With all these characters and talent I really want a great film.
