AVENGERS 4: It's The Beginning Of The End As Marvel's Phase 3 Finale Officially Kicks Off Production

Well, it looks like the endgame has officially begun as the Russo Brothers have taken to social media to announce the start of production for their highly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War sequel.

While Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled Avengers 4 were initially expected to film simultaneously, Marvel Studios made the wise decision back in April to split up the massive productions with Infinity War, which began filming back in late January, blocking off the first half of the year while the sequel booked the back half.

The highly anticipated third Avengers film wrapped right ahead of San Diego Comic-Con last month, and now, the sequel has officially commenced production. The Russo Brothers made the announcement themselves by releasing a new photo of a gloved hand (possibly Cap?) raising four fingers to commemorate the first day of filming.

Check out their post below:


Beginning the end.

A post shared by The Russo Brothers (@therussobrothers) on

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment - the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.

@JoeMomma29 -

Perlmutter Infinity Glove confirmed!
JonC - 8/10/2017, 1:20 PM
Its the only Infinity Gauntlet they could afford for part 4 considering they blew the budget on part 3. Perlmutter was dragged back from TV to reign them in.
RocknRolla - 8/10/2017, 1:23 PM
@JoeMomma29 - Great! Can we get the damn trailer now?
Deonox - 8/10/2017, 2:16 PM
@RocknRolla - Easy there, the trailer's already leaked. Only 3 more months until we get an official HD one. I want to see this trailer when the vfx have been touched up

@JoeMomma29 - ..this is awesome and sad at the same time...

@JonC - What are you on about? Do you have a source for what you are referencing? Last I heard the two films (Infinity War & Avengers 4) had a combined budget of $1B, approx $500M per film. I haven't heard anything about them needing to be reigned in...

If you are referencing Captain America: Civil War, you are misinformed. They got the budget they wanted ($250M), it's just that Perlmutter and the "creative committee" didn't want it that high....that caused the internal restructure that freed Feige from Perlmutter.

@Talontd - I'm pretty sure he's just joking.
Argetlam22 - 8/10/2017, 8:37 PM
