When all is done, the Infinity War films may only take 6 hours to watch, but it looks like they are going to take at least 9 months to film.
This is going to put the biggest strain on Chris Evans. Right now, he’s finished with Avengers: Age of Ultron, and busy promoting the film. Soon, he’ll start shooting Captain America: Civil War and then he’ll be back for the next two Avengers films before the end of next year.
It’s no real surprise that Infinity War will take so long to shoot. The Lord of the Rings films took around 18 months to shoot and this is only one less movie.
Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 will be released on May 4, 2018, and Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2 will open on May 3, 2019.
