Marvel fans have a lot to look forward to over the next couple of years, with the 2017 release of Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2, Spiderman: Homecoming, and Thor: Ragnarok, the latter featuring the Bruce Banner’s Hulk, telling the story of where Thor and Hulk were during the events of Captain America: Civil War. 2018 will see Black Panther, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Avengers: Infinity War released.

Last June it was announced that Infinity War was to be scaled back to one film, after originally it was conceived to be one story across two films.

Marvel teases fans

Since the first Iron Man film back in 2008, Marvel have been working in phases to create an ever-evolving and dynamic cinematic universe, which has been hugely successful thus far. Production on Infinity War begun on January 23rd and they have now released a teaser video marking the beginning of production on, what is set to be the biggest Marvel movie of the universe.

This was particularly exciting because during the teaser there were interviews with stars Robert Downey Jnr, Tom Holland and Chris Pratt. Along with producer Kevin Feige, writers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus and directors Anthony and Joe Russo. This is exciting news as the films this year build up to the event that will be Avengers: Infinity War, but that news alone is not the reason for Marvel fans to get excited.

Peter Dinklage was reported to be wanted for a ‘key role’ and they are reportedly in early talks about bringing him in. Plus, a second untitled sequel is to be shot back to back with production due to end in October.

What we know

The films villain is Thanos, who is the strongest foe that the Avengers would have faced and it sees them also meet the Guardians.

This will be exciting for Marvel fans, as it would see the first interaction between Downey Jnr and Pratt’s characters, Tony Stark AKA Iron-Man, and Peter Quill AKA Star-Lord. Plus, with early release viewings of Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2, it is already being touted as the best Marvel film yet, and this means Avengers: Infinity War will have a lot to live up to.
