In a new interview with Esquire, Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America) confirmed that Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 & Part 2 will shoot back to back, for a period of approximately nine months, beginning in late 2016.
His life is planned through 2019: True
“You know, you plan around the Marvel responsibilities. You have to. We start [Captain America: Civil War] in a couple weeks, and then that shoots until August or something like that. August or September. Then I’ve got some downtime and I can do with it as I please. I don’t know if I want to take time off or go pursue another directing job or find a movie to act in or, you know, do whatever I’m creatively inclined to pursue or wait, relax, enjoy my life. And then we start the Infinity War, I think, some time in the third quarter. Fall or winter of 2016. That’s going to be like nine months to shoot both movies back to back.”
This should’t come as too much of a surprise, as the trades speculated that the film would shoot back to back sometime next year once Marvel officially announced the Russo brothers as the directors for Infinity War. Still, it’s nice to see some sort of confirmation come about.
Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 will hit movie theaters on May 4, 2018 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 will hit movie theaters on May 3, 2019. Both films will be directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, and will more than likely be written by Captain America writers, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
