Russo Brothers share first set photo of Avengers: Infinity War
Practically the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has been building up to Avengers: Infinity War since the first Avengers film (2012) and it’s now one of the most highly anticipated upcoming superhero movies. Slated for release in 2018 after the upcoming instalments Doctor Strange (2016), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), Thor: Ragnarok (2017) and Black Panther (2018), most fans weren’t expecting to see anything from Avengers: Infinity War this year until directors Anthony and Joe Russo surprised us all by sharing a set photo last month on their Facebook Page with only one word in the caption: “Rehearsal”.
In the photo which was presumably taken from a production studio during the “rehearsal”, we see Josh Brolin in the far right dressed in a motion capture suit while talking to the Russo brothers, who also directed Captain America: Civil War (2016). We all know Thanos, the supervillain who Brolin is portraying, has always been CGI mo-capped and voices by Brolin but till now, the character hasn’t really moved much in his brief appearances in the MCU films. He sat on his floating chair, he turns and grins at the camera, he walks slowly to his gauntlet and wears it… that’s about it. With this little photo teaser that Russo brothers shared, it does seem like a hint that it’s going to be epic with Brolin doing at least some real action as the superheroes’ biggest threat they’ve yet to know about. The film’s actual production is said to begin in November. Can’t wait to see the film! Hope it’ll live up to the epicness that the MCU is still building on.
Besides pre-production of the film itself, I’m quite sure a few Avengers: Infinity War video games are also currently being planned out although there’s no news about it yet. While waiting for that, you could try the Avengers online slot games for fun or real money. Or play the existing Avenger games like Lego Marvel’s Avengers which has received pretty good reviews since its release earlier this year. Well you all know I’ve been wanting to get a Playstation 4 and when I do, this is probably one of the first few games I’ll be playing.
