Avengers: Infinity War to shoot back to back in 2016
Chris Evans has revealed that both parts of Avengers: Infinity War will be shot back to back in 2016.
Speaking to Esquire, Evans said that he plans his other acting gigs around Marvel commitments and revealed that he is to begin filming Captain America: Civil War in the coming weeks, after that finishes he will then have a short break before beginning the epic nine-month shoot for Infinity War.
He said: "You plan around the Marvel responsibilities; you have to. We start [Captain America: Civil War] in a couple of weeks, and then that shoots until August or something like that. August or September. Then I've got some downtime and I can do with it as I please. I don't know if I want to take time off or go pursue another directing job or find a movie to act in or, you know, do whatever I'm creatively inclined to pursue or wait, relax, enjoy my life."
He continued: "And then we start the Infinity War, I think, some time in the third quarter. Fall or winter of 2016. That's going to be like nine months to shoot both movies back to back."
Avengers: Infinity War will be directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, with the first part due for release in May 2018 and the second in May 2019.
Avengers: Age Of Ultron is in UK cinemas now.
