Filming for Avengers: Infinity War has (and will continue) to take place all over the world. With some production already having taken place in Atlanta, part of the cast and crew has been setting up in Edinburgh, Scotland over the past two weeks in preparation for what is expected to be a fairly important scene. We’ve seen bits and pieces of it over the past week, catching glimpses of something crazy going on with Paul Bettany’s Vision and a stunt double for Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff. It looks like it’s time for the stunt double to step aside as Olsen is now in Edinburgh!
Reports out of Old Town Edinburgh have hinted at next week’s set piece being loaded with stars as Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Bendedict Cumberbatch (or at least a stand-in) and Olsen were all expected to film. Bettany’s appearance was a bit of a surprise and it looks like there may be at least one more surprise addition to the scene as Jeremy Renner may be on his way as well!

We have no confirmation that Hawkeye will be in the scene, but the timing seems a bit coincidental for him to be heading to Atlanta. Given the bond that Hawkeye and Wanda have formed, it would hardly be surprising for him to be looking out for her since the pair are fugitives following the events of Captain America: Civil War.
Filming in Edinburgh is expected to pick up over the next couple of weeks, while filming is apparently still taking place in Atlanta and planned for New York City in May. Next to nothing about the plot of the film has leaked, so next week’s shoot in Edinburgh represents our first really good hope at finding out something.
Avengers: Infinity War and its STILL untitled sequel are expected to film through the spring and Infinity War will open in theaters May 5, 2018.
