We already know that the cast for [The Avengers: Infinity War](tag:738027) and [Avengers: Infinity War - Part II](tag:2390833) includes what seems like everybody and their grandma. I mean, everyone is going to be in those movies. And these are A-list celebrities, for the most part. They don't come cheap!
Well, did you know that the production budget for the two films could add up to about $1 billion dollars? That's insane. But totally worth it for arguably the most important franchise in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Bleeding Cool reported the following finding as well:
"And of that, the above the line costs, that paid to the screenwriter, director, producers and principal actors will be a cool four hundred million dollars alone. And of the actor budget, Robert Downey Jr gets half."
The films are being directed by Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Civil War) and being written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 arrives in theaters May 4, 2018 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 will arrive May 3, 2019.
