If you thought that Marvel would scale down the scope of Avengers: Infinity War, then you would be greatly mistaken. Infinity War is the cherry on top for Marvel’s big plan. It is the reason for all the world building up to this point, and it is an event that will encompass all its universe. Thanos (Josh Brolin) is the big, bad villain in this film, and he is no stranger to attempting to completely annihilate the universe.
In a recent interview with Production Designer Charles Wood, Comicbook.com asked him what is so exciting about Infinity War:
“Any time you turn that page on this script, you’re kind of staggered, blown away, terrified by what’s in front of you. I think rather like Doctor Strange, you’ll find this film, it’s not regurgatative, yeah? What I’m trying to say, is, there are many, many, many new worlds to see in this film.”
According to Wood, these environments must feel real, and they now have to feel real beyond Earth. This film is big, and will not only encompass all the Earth-bound Marvel heroes, but the Cosmic heroes as well (see Guardians of the Galaxy). Little is known whether the film will follow the comic book run of the same name, but most of that battle takes place in space on an asteroid. The Infinity Gauntlet is over-powered as hell, so there would be no surprise to see the heroes take the fight into space, far away from any innocent bystanders.
This statement opens up a world of possibilities for the heroes of the MCU. This means that we could once again see Thor fight in a land outside of Asgard and Earth. His fighting is a lot more adaptive outside of these two realms. Will we see a glimpse of Doctor Stephen Strange’s multiverse? will the fight go into the micro verse at all (as seen in Ant-Man)?
There are still four Marvel films set to hit theaters before the release of Avengers: Infinity War. It seems like it will be an exciting year for Marvel fans, and comic book fans.
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4, 2018.
