Avengers: Infinity War and its untitled sequel started filming on January 23, 2017. We won’t see the finished films until May 18, 2018 and May 3, 2019, respectively, but Marvel Studios released a new promotional video about the start of production. The behind-the-scenes teaser features Robert Downey Jr., Tom Holland, Chris Pratt, Kevin Feige, the Russo brothers, and others, each hinting at what’s in store for the entire MCU.
Enough of my jibber jabbeer. Here’s the video.
In terms of marketing, it makes sense that Downey, Pratt, and Holland are the three actors showcased. Their three characters represent the pillars of the MCU. There’s Iron Man who birthed the Avengers and the MCU, there’s Star Lord who brought the MCU into space, and there’s Spider-Man who was a carefully acquired intellectual property that will help Disney achieve total world and intergalactic domination.
I just hope they punch the hell out of things in space.
The production art of Rocket Racoon and Thor being battle BFFs is in the gallery. Are you excited for this big old super team-up? Will Chris Evans finally say “Avengers assemble”? Will Thanos kill the hell out of everything or just sort of sit around and be purple like he’s done for a decade? Let us know in the comments section.[via Marvel Studios on Twitter]
