The ongoing filming for Avengers: Infinity War is nearing its end. Production for the Marvel film, initially planned as the first chapter in a two-part epic, has been going on for roughly six months now in Atlanta, Georgia beginning in January with frequent breaks for scheduling and location changes. The film will pit all of Marvel Cinematic Universe’s heroes, thus far, against Mad Titan Thanos (Josh Brolin) who endeavors to collect all Infinity Gems.
In the last couple of weeks, various photos teasing fans from the set of the film have hit the internet. From Science Bros selfies with Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo who plays Iron Man/ Tony Stark and Bruce Banner/Hulk to The Russo Brothers (Joe and Anthony) spending some time in Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum and a wrecked New York cab prop, fans are always on the lookout on what other teases what we can get from the closed-off set. And if the tip holds true, we may have to wait a couple more weeks before we are treated for another photo sneak-peak again.
The nugget of information comes from Atlanta Filming – the Twitter account that tracks production developments and star citing in the city where a lot of movies and TV shows are shooting. According to them, principal photography for Infinity War is almost done with just a handful of actors left in the area to finish their respective parts. Production is expected to officially wrap up on July 14th with its direct sequel, the yet-to-be-titled Avengers 4 set to start work on the 27th.
Pretty much everyone is wrapped for Avengers until part 2 starts July 27 th.

With cumulative film boasting a massive cast, it is interesting to know who among the reported over 60 stars are still in Atlanta shooting. We know that Tom Holland, who plays Peter Parker aka Spider-Man, and RDJ are currently not in the area since the two are busy promoting Spider-Man: Homecoming in new York. Last week after he debuted the trailer for his upcoming film, Marshall, Chadwick Boseman, who takes on the role of Black Panther, revealed that he is scheduled to be back in the city to continue filming.
Interestingly, we have not really spotted any of Steve Rogers/Captain America’s (Chris Evans) crew in the set of Infinity War. No social media selfies and or any other indication that Evans and the rest of his squad from Captain America: Civil War although it has been confirmed that most, if not all of them, are going to be a part of Avengers 3. To be fair, however, there were just a handful of actor photos that came out of social media despite the fact that the Russos posted a photo of a vacant lot full of trailers – presumably owned by the film’s actors, a couple of weeks ago.
Originally, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 would be shot simultaneously. Eventually, that was changed to the movies going to be filmed back-to-back instead. On top of the main base camp for the project in Atlanta, location shoots were also held in Edinburgh, Glasgow and the Scottish Highlands, as well as in Durham Cathedral in England. A scheduled New York shoot is also expected to take place sometime in the summer.
