The Avengers assemble in a new photo shared from the Infinity War set
As production continues today on the massive superhero ensemble that is Avengers: Infinity War, star Robert Downey Jr. has taken to social media to share a shot of he and co-stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Ruffalo and Benedict Wong on their lunch break. There doesn’t appear to be any shawarma this time around, but it’s still a fun tease getting to see some new Avengers assemble. Getting Doctor Strange, Iron Man, Hulk and Wong together is just the beginning, however. Earlier this week, Scarlett Johansson promised a scene featuring 32 different Marvel characters!
Filming officially started on Monday, January 23, 2017 for the Avengers sequel, which sees Earth’s Mightiest Heroes teaming up with the Guardians of the Galaxy to take on Brolin’s Thanos.
Other confirmed cast members for Avengers: Infinity War include Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Chadwick Boseman, Sebastian Stan, Don Cheadle, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Pom Klementieff, Sean Gunn, Tom Holland and Josh Brolin.
Directors Anthony and Joe Russo, who return after Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War, are directing both Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled fourth film, which will be filmed back-to-back in Atlanta and are written by screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Both films will also be shot entirely with IMAX cameras.
Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is slated for a release in theaters on May 4, 2018. Then, the Avengers assemble again for the still-untitled fourth film, set for May 3, 2019.
