Avengers: Infinity War Featurette

"I feel like I'm on top of the world, because this is just mind-blowing." Marvel has released a new behind-the-scenes production featurette for Avengers: Infinity War, the next big superhero crossover movie hitting theaters in the summer of 2018. The video is more of an announcement of the start of production - filming began on January 23rd, 2017, under the working title Mary Lou, at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Georgia. Filming is expected to last until October/November 2017 - which is an extremely long shoot, but they're shooting the next two back-to-back. The Russo Brothers are directing, and instead of being split into two parts, it will be one big movie. This video features Kevin Feige, with appearances by Chris Pratt (Star Lord), Tom Holland (Spider-Man) and Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man) as well as a few others. Fire it up.

Here's the first production featurette for the Russo Bros' Avengers: Infinity War, on Marvel's YouTube:

Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War is a continuation of the Avengers series from Marvel Studios, bringing all of the superheroes together in one epic battle. No plot details have been revealed yet, but it is apparently based on the Infinity War six-issue comic book series published by Marvel Comics in 1992, involving Thanos finally getting ahold of the Infinity Gauntlet made up of six Soul Gems. Infinity War was originally announced as Part 1 and Part 2, but has since been condensed to just one movie. Kevin Feige promises Thanos will show us why he is the biggest, the badest, the best and most frightening villain the Avengers have ever faced. The movie is being directed by the Russo Brothers (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Civil War). Disney will release Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War in theaters starting May 4th, 2018 next summer. Stay tuned.

    Looking forward to seeing how they meet up with the Guardians.
  • I won't lie. I'm excited for this one. Russos know their job.
  • DanShaw
    No. They're shooting Avengers 3 and 4 concurrently. #3 is Infinity War, #4 has a new unannounced title. They're two different movies, not one cut in half like the original plan, but they're still basically a two-parted and both being shot at the same time. Hence the long shoot.
    • Ah that makes sense. Thanks for clarifying.
      • Dominic
        tho , Alex , maybe you should find out WHY the braintrust decided such . ...it doesn't bode well for movie 3 , as maybe the story is now compressed too much . #4 being a "different " movie but still following 3 in some fashion , must mean the original plan was seen as making a weaker 4th movie, in need of some juice ...will that mean a tighter #3 comes out better ? I doubt it . Comics are always better when the story spans more than 1 issue , and the endings SEEM undefined ....

    Here's the huge, glaring difference between Marvel and DC movies: all the fans and even casual moviegoers see this featurette and we're totally excited and onboard with seeing this....a movie that's not even Marvel's NEXT movie- but at least FOUR movies away. Look at DC, whose Justice League comes out this year and all you hear are crickets chirping, or people squirming nervously because we could get another dud. Justice League should be one of the most anticipated movies ever, but nobody cares about half the characters because their solo movies are coming out AFTER the fact. Huge mistake by DC. As Feige said, the characters are all fleshed out and substantive, so we actually care about them, even when there are 50 superheroes on screen. But I don't give a shit about Cyborg or the Flash because I know nothing about the characters (in the DCU).
    • grimjob
      Exactly. The JL movie should be a big deal, but I don't care at all because I have no investment in who these characters are.
      • RAW_D
        It's a DAMN shame Justice League is something to be dreaded rather than to look forward to. I'll just go watch the Justice League animated series again...
    • RAW_D
      It amazes me to no end how people try to rag on the Marvel "formula" and say DC is different and that it's approach needs to be different. Well, it's glaringly obvious what's working and what is not working.
  • Akirakorn
    Anybody else noticed they showed the Mind Stone twice? The yellow stone on Vision's forehead was originally inside Loki's scepter. I know they needed "6 stones" to show in the trailer... but still.
    • bumboclot
      Well they only had 5 stones in the movies so far. They have no footage of the 6th one yet.
  • DAVIDPD
    Pumped. Beyond pumped for INFINITY WAR.
  • RAW_D
    Winter Soldier was awesome, Civil War pissed me off. HEAR ME RUSSO BROS! TONE DOWN THE GD SHAKEY-CAM! IT'S LAZY AND SLOPPY FILM MAKING! DON'T DO IT! I WANT TO SEE SUPERHERO'S CLOBBERING EACH OTHER WITH A NICE STEADY CAM SHOT! ...rant end.
    • I think civil war suffered from the same issue that plagued Avengers: too much superheroes. Winter soldier was told from a more intimate point of view. Friendship was the driving force.
