The other day we reported that Ryan Coogler’s much anticipated Black Panther would be going before cameras on January 15th of next year. In that piece we mentioned that Avengers: Infinity War was expected to follow suit soon after and now we know when. The two-part culmination to the first 3 phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that will see all hands on deck against Thanos will begin filming on January 23rd.
The film, which has been in pre-production for a while under the care of the Russo brothers, is expected to film in Atlanta, London and around the world in as yet unrevealed locations. Previously the Russos have said that Avengers: Infinity War will be shot concurrently with the still untitled 4th Avengers film, as opposed to back-to-back, meaning that they will be working back and forth between the two pictures until July. Certainly some of that will be to accommodate the incredibly large cast, including Chadwick Boseman who will be busy working on his own solo film.
With filming just over a month away, we might expect Marvel to have some announcement for additional cast before the holiday break begins this weekend. Alternately, Marvel could elect to keep us in the dark and simply list the additional cast members in their traditional commencement of production announcement. Either way, it’s almost here everyone!
