Now, with the world of cinematic superheroes growing more and more full by the day, it's perhaps no real surprise that we're collectively starting to care far more about the beginning of film's productions than we ever have before. After all, where once we could simply worry about the day that a movie would arrive in theaters, the current convoluted release calendar forces us to worry about such arcane details as synced-up production schedules, SFX lead-times and the likelihood of future release date-tweaking. In other words, we're all armchair studio heads now, and that means that the day that a major #superhero movie — like, say, the ever-more upcoming #AvengersInfinityWar — begins filming really and truly matters (at least in our heads).
As such, it's pretty big news that...
We Finally Know When 'Avengers: Infinity War' Will Start Filming, It Seems
That, at least, is the latest word from the murky, mysterious web of whispers that we commonly call "the internet." Omega Underground is now reporting that Avengers: Infinity War is set to begin production — or, rather, the part of production that we would recognize as such, i.e. the bit where all the actors are on set, running around on camera — on January 23, 2017. Which, with the film still being lined up for a May 2018 release date, would seem to give its directors, #TheRussoBrothers, plenty of time to get the movie ready for public consumption.
As it turns out, though...
There's One Detail That's Particularly Intriguing
Specifically, the (reportedly) confirmed shooting locations. Y'see, it seems that Infinity War is set to shoot both in Atlanta, GA, and the UK, something that makes a whole lot of sense for what is surely set to be #MarvelStudios' biggest hunk of cinematic spectacle yet.
That in turn, though, means that Infinity War will not only be filming at roughly the same time as #Marvel's equally upcoming #BlackPanther movie, but that at least part of its production may well be going on right next door to the Panther's first solo adventure. Whether that ultimately suggests a prominent role for T'Challa and co. in Avengers: Infinity War, however — or simply represents an increasingly confident executive production team over at Marvel — very much remains to be seen.
While we wait, though, we can at least take comfort in the fact that — from the sounds of it — Avengers: Infinity War will be well on its way soon enough...
