Day One of "Avengers: Infinity War" Reveals Some Spoilers

Infinity War
The "Avengers: Infinity War" is something that will be big as it was set-up ever since the first movie. And only Robert Downey Jr. appears to be the crucial character that can assemble a bigger team than the Avengers.

After Downey answered some Facebook Live questions from "Avengers: Infinity War" headquarters (AKA the Atlanta) set, Marvel Studios released a behind-the-scenes featurette (watch below) touting it upcoming mega-teamup, and it confirmed a few rumors and will surely provide fodder for a few more.

Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord) and Downey (Tony Stark) lead off the set footage, which is from day one of shooting last month, with Downey calling it the start of "a year of fun-filled lensing."

The featurette confirms the Guardians of the Galaxy will be meeting the Avengers and that Spidey will be swinging into the film.

There were also a few plot tidbits.
  • The Avengers will be totally unprepared to face Thanos, thanks to the events of Captain America: Civil War, says studio head Kevin Feige.
  • Tony and Captain America still aren't talking, and "the Avengers are basically a name with nobody in it," according to screenwriter Christopher Markus.
  • "Tony senses this greater threat approaching, so he is doing everything in his power to keep the Earth safe," says co-director Joe Russo.
As for Downey's Facebook Live, there were also a few entertaining nuggets. Asked if Tony and Captain America (Chris Evans) still aren’t getting along, Downey responded, "he’s still on my S-list." There were also a few unexpected guests, with directors the Russo Brothers coming to try to get Downey back to work, while Pratt also dropped by in costume. And the camera man is also a familiar face.

"Avengers: Infinity War" opens 4 May 2018. An untitled Avengers sequel, which is shooting back-to-back with Infinity War, opens 3 May 2019.
