Nine years ago, the Marvel Cinematic Universe kicked off what has now become one of the most popular franchises in modern pop culture. From Iron Man to Captain America, to Guardians of the Galaxy and Doctor Strange, the MCU has evolved and will only get bigger next year with Avengers: Infinity War.
Production has already begun on Infinity War, and despite a few change-ups in the planned timeline for movie releases in the franchise, all engines are still firing full steam ahead. A new behind the scenes video from Marvel shows us Robert Downey Jr, Tom Holland and Chris Pratt on set for day one of the movie.
Since the first Avengers movie in 2012, the story has been building up to the introduction of Thanos, and of course the Infinity Stones. We’ve seen them feature in The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange and more, in a timeline that some may say kind of blends together with lesser and lesser original stories, but as popcorn movies with a tonne of action, you can’t help but appreciate the splendour you’re witnessing on your screen as someone who grew up reading these great stories and watching cartoons before school.
This is going to be massive!
