“Avengers: Age of Ultron” already amassed around USD200 million from their overseas debut, but that certainly didn’t stop Marvel Studios from making plans for the rest of the movies in their cinematic universe.
In a recent interview with Esquire, Chris Evans revealed his plans for the near future, which proved to be packed as he will be shooting for “Captain America: Civil War” and “Avengers: Infinity War“. The star even admitted that he plans his schedule to revolve around his Marvel commitments.
The “Captain America” actor said:
You know, you plan around the Marvel responsibilities. You have to. 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 9 months to shoot both movies back to back.
He stated that they shared some similar qualities, which bonded the 2 of them together.
We were both timid and nervous and didn’t know how it was gonna play out. It’s been nice to kind of share this with him. We each have the standalone films as well, which can be a whole separate element of pressure and anxiety, and he’s just been so helpful to me. Just to have someone else who’s going through the same struggles I am.
Anthony and Joe Russo will be helming Part 1 and Part 2 of “Avenger: Infinity War”, with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely writing the screenplay. Part 1 will hit cinemas on 4th May 2018, followed by Part 2 on 3rd May 2019.
There is currently no official synopsis of the 2-part movie. However, it is widely believed that Thanos, the intergalactic warlord who was shown in the mid-credits scene of “Avengers“, will be the main antagonist of the film.
The filming for “Captain America: Civil War” started today. The movie is slated for release on 6th May 2016.
