The Marvel Cinematic Universe has turned into a series of escalating spectacles with each passing year, and that concept will culminate in next year's The Avengers: Infinity War. Bringing every major MCU factor together in one massive event, The Russo Brothers' epic will feature an unprecedented cast, and dial the magnitude of the conflict up to eleven. According to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 actor Chris Pratt, the process of working on the film felt like a dream. The actor recently opened up about the Infinity War production and explained:
It was really incredible. It seemed like a dream, as so much of these past few years has felt, like a weird fever dream where you're waking up and you're not sure if you're hallucinating or not.
We would be lying if we said that Chris Pratt's recent comments to EW about the production of The Avengers: Infinity War surprised us. Everything that we have learned about the film over the course of the last few years has led us to believe that it will be nothing less than a behemoth story, unlike anything that we have ever seen from the Marvel Cinematic Universe before. By bringing together essential players like The Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and Doctor Strange, the Phase 3 climax will ultimately change the landscape of the MCU going into Phase 4. We've been expecting something big from Infinity War, and it sounds like we're going to get it.
Of course, it doesn't hurt that Infinity War is bringing in some serious talent to help the iconic storyline come to life. With Joe and Anthony Russo behind the camera (who proved themselves more than capable with their work on The Winter Soldier and Civil War) as well as Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely working on the film's screenplay, Infinity War's creative process is very clearly in great hands. Add in the fact that beloved actors like Josh Brolin and Peter Dinklage will take center stage alongside current Marvel stars like Robert Downey Jr., Benedict Cumberbatch, and Chris Evans, and it's pretty easy to see why Chris Pratt was so in awe of the film when he got to work on the project.
The Avengers: Infinity War will blast its way into theaters next year on May 4, 2018. Here's everything that we currently know about the upcoming Marvel movie.
