In case you didn’t know (and really, how could you not?), production is now well underway on Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers: Infinity War. Though a few set pics made their way onto the web when things got rolling, it was really the new video that Marvel dropped last week which sent the internet into a frenzy.
Though it didn’t give us anything in the way of footage from the film itself, the clip took us behind the scenes for some interviews with the cast and crew and also revealed a few pieces of intriguing concept art. All in all, it was an exciting first look at Infinity War and just a small taste of what’s to come. And what’s to come will, apparently, be “unlike anything we’ve ever seen.”
While it will likely be some time before we get anything else from the project, given that Marvel has their hands full what with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2., Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther, to name but a few, filming on the next Avengers movie continues on full steam ahead and that means more and more goodies from the set are making their way online.
Today, we’ve got a brand new production logo to share with you. Seen below, this latest photo comes to us courtesy of Reddit (of course it does) and further fuels the rumors of the movie getting a title change. For weeks now, we’ve heard that Marvel may drop the prefix and simply go with just Infinity War, which is a lot cleaner. The studio hasn’t confirmed it yet, but the image below certainly suggests as much.
Of course, this is just a production logo and isn’t necessarily the same one that will be used when marketing the film. It’s entirely possible that the Russo’s movie will land in theaters with the Avengers prefix still in tact. At this point, it’s hard to say, but if Marvel does end up dropping it, we wouldn’t object. After all, they really don’t need the prefix anymore. Everyone and their grandmother knows that this is an Avengers film. No need to muddy up the title by adding the name of the team at the start, right?
Regardless, with production on Avengers: Infinity War now in full swing, we expect to see a lot more from the set begin to emerge in the coming weeks. Again, it may be a while before we get anything in the way of official promotional material (which means we may not find out about the title change until much later), but at least we can look forward to more photos like this one trickling onto the web in the near future.
Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers: Infinity War will hit theaters on May 4th, 2018. Before then, however, the studio’s got James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 coming up next. Look for that one to land later this year, on May 5th.
