Marvel Studios, over the weekend, has officially announced the start of production of "Avengers: Infinity War" via a featurette that shows Robert Downey Jr., Tom Holland and Chris Pratt pumped up on getting the film rolling. It definitely put a smile on our faces too. Watch the featurette below:
Prior to the release of the featurette, Robert Downey Jr. also hosted a Facebook Live feed in which he answered fan questions. Here’s everything we learned from the live chat and featurette so far:
2. “Avengers: Infinity War” kicks off with tension as Captain America is still on Iron Man’s “S-List”
3. Reflecting on his appearance in the first “Iron Man” to “Avengers: Infinity War,” Downey says “[Tony Stark] has matured a bit. What has changed is the universe around him.”
4. Stark’s universe now involves Peter Parker, the Guardians of the Galaxy and even Doctor Strange.
5. Joe and Anthony Russo have never fought on set.
6. The three Avengers the Russo brothers would go on a family vacation with would be Tony Stark, Peter Park, and Vision.
7. Production officially began last month in Pinewood Atlanta.
8. Thanos will be “the most frightening villain the Avengers have ever faced;” he’ll show us all why he’s “the biggest, the best, the baddest villain that we’ve ever had.”
9. The Avengers are completely unprepared to face Thanos as a result of the events of “Captain America: Civil War” leaving the Avengers a team name with no team members.
10. Get ready for the Guardians of the Galaxy / Avengers team-up as we see Thor fighting alongside Rocket Raccoon
11. The Russo brothers confirm two films will be deeply connected – “these next two Avengers films will be an event like no one has ever seen on film before”
12. Downey drives that point home as we’ve come to learn the next two Avengers will be filmed back-to-back for a “year of fun-filled lensing”
