With more characters than you can shake an Infinity Gauntlet at and one of the scariest cinematic baddies in years, Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is a film of truly epic proportions
With any big blockbuster, there’s an inevitable amount of hype that leads to an anxious period of fraught anticipation. After ten years of build up, it’s hard to blame fans for being so excited about Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War. Plus, with frequent, fleeting teases of the Avengers’ arch-nemesis Thanos in both Guardians Of The Galaxy and the post-credits scene in Age Of Ultron, Marvel ensured that legions of fans were boarding the hype train left, right and centre.
As is often the case with a blockbuster of this size, there are some eye-wateringly huge (and, at times, eyebrow-raisingly small) numbers that go into creating something quite this epic in scale. So strap yourself in and check out the video below for some fascinating facts…
The infinite numbers of Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War
Thrillingly, co-directors Antony and Joe Russo and the writing team of Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely definitely delivered an incredible movie. Tying an abundance of characters, plotlines, themes, set pieces, planets and galaxies into one, cohesive and thoroughly entertaining narrative was no mean feat. In (somehow) managing to combine all these elements together, they’ve produced one of, if not the best superhero films of all time. Now we just have to wait until 2019 for the sequel!
