A trailer for the start of production. Now that’s modern film marketing at its best if I’ve ever seen it. And yes, I’m as much a sucker for it as anyone. The hype has started for Avengers Infinity War, and Kevin Feige himself has confirmed casting and plot rumors.
In the past decade, the Marvel movies have woven together a pantheon of comic book characters like we’ve never seen before. Comic book plots are dense, convoluted, and downright long. Writers have so much back story to work from, it’s a wonder they can boil down and distill a character at all to a screen version. The films, from Iron Man to Captain America Civil War, have been some of the most anticipated blockbusters of movie history. Heart and humor, wit and action, and a focus on true characterization have complimented the big budget zeal.
Marvel’s Infinity War, the penultimate installment of the Avengers saga began filming a few weeks ago in Atlanta. Marvel head Kevin Fiege took to the camera and unleashed a blip of tantalizing footage from the set.
