The Avengers, torn apart after the events of Captain America: Civil War, join forces with the Guardians of the Galaxy to battle Thanos, who is trying to amass the Infinity Stones for a gauntlet that will give him dominion over space, time, and all reality.
The biggest and most anticipated superhero movie of all time started shooting about two months ago. Announcements, spoilers and rumours are all over the internet so as always im this subforum we will open the thread and keep you posted.
What we know so far:
This is the 19th movie in Marvel Cinematic Universe and is intended to be a sequel of The Avengers (2012) and Age of Ultron (2015). The release date is May the 4th, 2018 on IMAX. It's will be filmed in Scotland with shooting starting in Atlanta and will last for about six months. The untitled sequel to this movie will be released in 2019 so the Infinity War will actually be a two part story. Budget is reported to be around 500,000,000 $ though it wasn't confirmed whether it covers both movies or just part 1.
Russo brothers who are masterminds behind critically acclaimed Winter Soldier and Civil War will return as directors for these movies. Kevin Fiege like always will be the main producer.
It was reported that we will see 67 characters in Infinity War.
So far the following people were confirmed for part 1:
Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark) | Chris Evans (Steve Rodgers) | Chris Hemsworth (Thor) | Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner) | Josh Brolin (Thanos) | Tom Hiddleston (Loki) | Chris Pratt (Peter Quill) | Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton) | Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes) | Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff) | Paul Bettany (Vision) | Benedict Cumberbatch (Stephen Strange) | Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) | Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill) | Benedict Wong (Wong) | Zoe Soldana (Gamora) | Karen Gillan (Nebula) | Vin Diesel (Groot) | Dave Bautista (Drax) | Sean Gunn and Bradley Cooper (Rocket) | Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff) | Pom Klememtieff (Mantis) | Benicia Del Toro (The Collector) | Antonie Mackie (Sam Vilson) | Terry Notary (Corvus Glaive ? ) and of course Tom Holland as Marvel's most popular superhero Peter Parker aka Spider-Man.
Corvus Glaive was spotted on set which means Black Order as Thanos's right henchmen are to appear as well. Whether they'll have a major antagonist role in part 1 and then Thanos will be the main antagonist in part 2 or they are simply there to support him is currently unknown.
Movie will be based on comic saga known as Infinity Gauntlet. For the non comic readers spoilers incoming.
"Infinity Gauntlet is a story about mad titan Taton collecting all the Infinity Gems (Stones in MCU) to conquer the Marvel Universe and impress or better say earn the love of physical embodiment of Death."
Now of course the plot will surely deviate from the source material but it's a starting point.
Now in MCU, we have already seen 5 Infinity Stones:
The Space Stone: As seen in Captain America and The Avengers as the Tesseract, it was used to open a portal for the Chitauri into New York, and its energy was harnessed to teleport Thor and Loki back to Asgard at the conclusion of The Avengers. It currently resides in Odin’s vault.
The Mind Stone: This particular gem made appearances in both Avengers movies, first in Loki’s mind-control scepter from the first installment, and most recently embedded in the forehead of The Vision after helping create Ultron.
The Reality Stone: You may know this one as The Aether, as seen in Thor: The Dark World. The Reality Stone deals in dark matter, and came damn close to unmaking the universe thanks to the efforts of the Dark Elves. It currently is in the possession of The Collector, played by Benicio Del Toro in Guardians of the Galaxy.
The Power Stone: This one was the MacGuffin of Guardians of the Galaxy, used by Ronan (played by Lee Pace) and eventually recovered by Starlord and the rest of the Guardians. Currently, the Nova Corps are keeping it safe in their vaults on Xandar.
The Time Stone: Making its first appearance as the Eye of Agamotto in Doctor Strange, we see the time stone utilized by our titular hero for reasons we won’t reveal to you yet (seriously, see the movie, it’s awesome). For now, it’s housed within the halls of Kamar-Taj in Nepal, guarded by Strange and his order of sorcerers.
The whereabouts of Soul Stone are unknown. That Stone is usually connected to Adam Warlock who is one of the center figures in comic's Infinity Saga and whose regerenative cacoon we have seen in Guardians of the Galaxy!
Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist all had their Marvel debut. There are rumors they too will appear in this movie though again nothing confirmed.
Thanks appearance was changed in Guardians of the Galaxy (from what we have seen in the Avengers). And now apparently they will change him again. (not confirmed)
How he is supposed to look in Infinty War:
How he looked in GotG and was supposed to look in IW too.
Are you excited about Infinity War? Will you watch it? Are there some characters from comics you would like to see (Note we will probably not see anyone related to X-Men and FF)? Maybe someone not casted from MCU likE Defenders or maybe Phil Coulson?
Share your thoughts.
That is it for now. There are pictures leaking all over the internet and apparently big news incoming next week so I will update the thread with all the new content and pics.

This is a movie I am really looking forward to, and it's hard not to since this is what Marvel has been building up to, and damn I hope that I will not get disappointed. So because of that I try not to hype the movie to much, but it's hard really hard, since most of the other movies are really good.
Dave Bautista wants Drax to meet Iron Man in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR.
"I think there’s so much humor to be had there with Drax and Tony Stark. With him being such a sarcastic bastard and Drax taking everything so literally. I think there’s tons of humor to be had there. I’m also a huge fan of Robert’s
