AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR will shoot from 2016 for nine months

2 min read

Phase 2 is almost behind us. With just Ant-Man left to close off the current line-up of Marvel movies, it’s time to start looking ahead to Phase 3 of the superhero slate, which is going for broke in a series of films that’ll culminate in one massive two-parter.

I am of course talking about the upcoming third and fourth Avengers movies, Infinity War parts one and deux. And it looks like Captain America won’t be getting any rest after the events of Age Of Ultron. Speaking to Esquire via Collider, Cap star Chris Evans explained that shooting would begin soon for the third film in his series, Civil War, which would last until “August or September”.

From there, Evans will need to prep for Infinity War, which Evans described as being a 2016 shoot “that’s going to be like nine months to shoot both movies back to back.” That’s a ton of time to spend on a project, although Evans is handling it like an adult. ”You know, you plan around the Marvel responsibilities,” Evans said. “You have to.”

Infinity War will mark Evan’s sixth and seventh outings as the first Avenger. Which will most likely also be his final performances wielding the shield, as Evans was contracted for seven movies originally.  Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 releases on May 4, 2018, and Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2 opens on May 3, 2019. Winter Soldier and Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo will also direct this massive space epic that sees Earth’s mightiest heroes take on the mad titan Thanos in a war for the all powerful Infinity stones.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
