The new Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel will begin filming in November of this year and the Russo brothers sat down recently to tease us about what is to come.
“I can’t get into too much detail about who we’re introducing, but these two movies are intended to be the culmination of everything that has happened in the MCU since the very first ‘Iron Man’ movie,” said Anthony Russo. “In being a culmination, these movies are in some ways going to be an end to certain things, and in some ways, they’re going to be the beginning of certain things.”
“You always have to make sure that your choices feel organic to the storytelling, and really, you have to sort of structure them in the way that they need to be there.”
They don’t give too much away and they still won’t confirm who exactly is going to appear, but we did hear from Vin Diesel this weekend that the Guardians of the Galaxy WILL appear.
Diesel posted a live-stream Facebook video where he said “Next year you’ve got Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 coming and that whole concept started from you all saying ‘when are you gonna be in a Marvel movie?’ And you remember the first picture after that Marvel meeting that I had where I was standing [with] the Avengers thing in the back.”
“What’s gonna be surreal is that picture is going to come to pass because now the Guardians will be included in Avengers: Infinity War and that’s incredibly exciting,” added Diesel. “Incredibly exciting. Incredibly exciting and something that if you were a part of our page you knew before everybody.”
The Russo Brothers have not confirmed this, but it’s not really that big of a surprise that the Guardians would appear. We’re not ruling out anyone from the MCU making an appearance.
