Anyone else ready for the production of more Marvel flicks to get rolling?
In a recent interview with Esquire, Chris Evans a.k.a Steve Rogers chatted about the length of filming for Captain America: Civil War as well as when he plans to begin shooting the two-part Avengers epic – Avengers: Infinity War.
“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.”
Captain America: The Winter Soldier and “Civil War” directors Anthony and Joe Russo are set to helm the two-parter, which will feature a script by Marvel favorites Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn previously chimed in on the idea of the Guardians meeting the Avengers in saying: “When I’m asked about the Guardians and their future, and whether they’ll meet up with the Avengers I really don’t have all that much to say, because some of it isn’t decided yet, and I don’t want to give away what is decided.”
Though the full cast is unconfirmed, Avengers: Infinity War Part I will see release on May 4, 2018, with Part II set to follow one year later on May 3, 2019.
