Fans of the Avengers and everything Marvel will be pleased to know that Avengers: Infinity War has started production.
Not only that, it was reported from the Sundance Film Festival last week that Avengers 4 has also started production.
But Avengers: Infinity War is one of the most highly anticipated Marvel films as it has been reported that it will feature 67 (possibly more) characters with a huge storyline.
A storyline so big that the project is being split into two films, hitting theatres between May 2018 and 2019.
The Russo brothers, Anthony and Joe, took to their social media to confirm that the filming has begun by posting a photo from the set itself.
It’s very exciting as it looks to be the first of many photos that will surely surface from this project.
The photo showcases quite a few trailers but not any of the stars so the Russo brothers aren’t ready to spill the secrets.
Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled Avengers 4 are shooting on a reported budget of $500 million and will be shooting back-to-back for at least six months.
There haven’t been any details regarding the storyline at the moment, but there has been some confirmation about who will be getting involved.
All of the Avengers themselves will be included as well as their allies, such as; Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Chris Evans (Captain America/Steve Rogers), Robert Downey Jr (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk/Bruce Banner), Paul Bettany (Vision), Chadwick Boseman (T’Challa/Black Panther), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Sebastian Stan (Bucky/Winter Soldier).
The Guardians of Galaxy stars will also be heading into the action.
Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Dave Bautista (Drax the Destroyer), Vin Diesel (Groot), Bradley Cooper (Rocket Raccoon) as well as Karen Gillan (Nebula) are currently set to come back in their own sequel later this year.
But they are set to join Avengers: Infinity War and it’ll be very interesting to see how they interlink with the Avengers.
Other already established Marvel characters such as Josh Brolin (Thanos), Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), Benedict Wong (Wong), and Paul Rudd (Scott Lang/Ant-Man) are also set to make an appearance.
The young Tom Holland, who is set to play Spiderman again in his upcoming solo movie after his stint in Avengers: Civil War , is also rumoured to be appearing.
Wow! That’s a long list so far! It sounds like some heavy stuff is about to go down.
We cannot wait already. Is it 2018 yet?
