In a post on Facebook this morning, the Russo Brothers confirmed the start of filming in Atlanta for one of 2018’s most anticipated films – Avengers: Infinity War. Slated for release first in the UK, on April 27, 2018, and then in the U.S. on May 4th, 2018, the film will be followed by an untitled Avengers film in the UK on April 26, 2019, and the US on May 3, 2019.
The film is likely based on the comic book series from 1992 (Infinity Gauntlet and Infinity War) and will feature characters from across the Marvel Universe, including Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, the Guardians of the Galaxy and the usual host of Avengers like Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and Captain America.
Plot details are scarce, but we do know that Josh Brolin’s Thanos wants to collect all six Infinity Stones into his Infinity Gauntlet so that he can have complete control of reality. It appears that it will take an army of superheroes to try and stop him. 2018 can’t get here soon enough!
