Filming continues this week in Scotland on Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, and we now have an exciting new video from the set to share with you. We recently saw some images of Elizabeth Olsen and her stunt double rehearsing an explosive action scene on the cobbled streets of Edinburgh, but here we get a much better look at what the sequence will entail.
The footage features Olsen in character as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch locked in combat with an actor in a motion-capture suit, and we might just have a very good idea of which fearsome CG character he’s standing in for. Rumor has it that Thanos will be sending out members of The Black Order, AKA The Cull Obsidian, to round up the remaining Infinity Stones, and there’s a decent chance this is one of them engaging Wanda in battle. In fact, considering the fact that he’s wielding a pike-type weapon, it might even turn out to be Thanos’ most trusted and deadly general, Corvus Glaive.
A previous set video also featured Paul Bettany’s Vision, but there’s no sign of him here. Is it possible that Glaive (or whoever this turns out to be) has already managed to retrieve the Infinity Gem that’s set into the forehead of the mega-powerful android? Maybe, but we’ll no doubt have to wait until the Marvel threequel hits theaters to find out for sure.
Avengers: Infinity War is set for release on May 4th, 2018, and with production now underway, you can expect a lot more set photos and videos to continue hitting the web.
