The next Avengers movie is promising to be Marvel Studios biggest project to date. Everyone involved with Avengers: Infinity War and its untitled sequel say it’s the culmination of 10 years worth of movies, with nearly every hero thus far appearing in the film.
A lot of characters will be teaming up and meeting, creating interesting dynamics that we’ve yet to see on screen. Co-director Joe Russo revealed the pairing of Spider-Man and Doctor Strange will be very interesting for fans due to their interactions.
“There’s a really great chemistry there,” Russo said to Good Morning America at Disney’s D23 Expo. “They both have a proximity to each other, if that’s a hint that I can give. But anybody who’s a Marvel fan will know that they both reside in the same city. I think Tom [Holland] and Benedict [Cumberbatch] have a really wonderful chemistry and we wanted to exploit that.”
That’s a surprising pairing but given the interviews Holland and Cumberbatch have given at the event it’s not surprising. They're both charming actors and embody the traits of their characters, despite existing on complete opposite ends of the spectrum for science and magic in the Marvel Universe.
We’re excited to see how those worlds collide and how they work with each other when Avengers: Infinity War premieres in theaters on May 4, 2018.

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment - the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
