Even though today marked the very first day of shooting for the approaching Captain America: Civil War, Marvel Studios already has their sights set on the future beyond it with Avengers: Infinity War. Discussing with Esquire, Steve Rogers himself, Chris Evans, talked about just how long he'll be filming "Civil War" and when he expects to star the two-component Avengers epic.
"We start [Captain America: Civil War] in a few weeks, and then that shoots until August or something such as that. August or September. Afterward I Have got some free time and I can do with it as I please. I don't understand if I need to take time off or go pursue another directing job or find a picture to act in or, you know, do whatever I am creatively inclined to pursue or wait, relax, love my life. And then we begin the Infinity War, I think, any time in the 3rd quarter. Autumn or winter of 2016. That is going to be like nine months to shoot both movies back to back."
Captain America: The Winter Soldier and "Civil War" managers Anthony and Joe Russo are ready to helm the two-parter, that will feature a script by Marvel favorites Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn previously chimed in on the notion of the Guardians meeting up with the Avengers in saying: "When I am asked about the Guardians and their future, and whether they will meet up with the Avengers I really don't have all that much to say, because some of it isn't determined yet, and I do not want to give away what is decided."
Although the whole cast is unconfirmed, Avengers: Infinity War Part I will find release on May 4, 2018, with Part II set to follow one year later on May 3, 2019.
