Charles Wood isn’t a household name to fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but his work on Thor: The Dark World, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Doctor Strange has helped give some very distinctive scenes their flavor. With Avengers: Infinity War about to go into production, Wood has spent the last 6 months or so designing the set pieces that will bring one of Marvel’s most epic stories to life and it seems that we are in for an entirely new feel to the next two Avengers films.
Wood, whose design helped bring Stephen Strange’s multiversal joyride to the big screen, promises that these next two films will provide fans with more new thrills saying, “I think rather like Doctor Strange, you’ll find this film, it’s not regurgatative, yeah? What I’m trying to say, is, there are many, many, many new worlds to see in this film.“
As for what those new worlds will be, it’s safe to say that, given the scope of the film and the fact that Thanos will be out to kill as many of our heroes as possible, they won’t be full of unicorns and rainbows. Wood added, “Any time you turn that page on this script, you’re kind of staggered, blown away, terrified by what’s in front of you.” Bringing those feelings of terror to the big screen should excite audiences, especially fans of Jim Starlin’s Infinity Saga. If Marvel Studios is as true to the source material for Avengers: Infinity War as they were to Doctor Strange, we could see some of George Perez and Ron Lim’s imaginative penciling brought to life and if they are as grim as they were in the comics, we will see just what Wood found so terrifying.
