Marvel Studios revealed its tenth anniversary photo shoot today, and the characters and stars of Avengers: Infinity War were front and center for in the glorious photo spread! Marvel Cinematic Universe fans were understandably thrilled about all the official first character looks we got for Infinity War - but how about the actual people in the photos, wearing the costumes?
Here's how the stars of the MCU are feeling about their new photo shoot spread:
I had a pretty surreal photo shoot while filming #avengers #infinitywar We took this photo (which will appear on the cover of some issues of @vanityfair) We also shot a “Marvel 10th Anniversary Class Photo” which included just about anyone that’s ever been in the 22 Marvel movies made in that time! That was really something. I kept looking around, flabbergasted. So many big stars. So many awesome actors. It was a real “pinch me,” moment. So naturally I pinched Benedict Cumberbatch and he was so in character he literally opened up a portal to the astral plane! I was like “whoa!” And then he pushed me in! At first it was cool. But now I’m starting to get concerned. I’ve been here for hundreds of years. As you know from seeing Dr. Strange time is kinda tricky in the Astral plane. I’m hoping he’ll contact me soon to let me out? I don’t know if he has Instagram. Someone tell him? I know @tomholland2013 follows me. Can you tell him Tom? Hope he didn’t forget about me. I love being in Marvel movies. I’d hate to miss the premiere of #infinitywar next summer.
Chris Pratt, as usual, is a mix a sentiment and jokes; Elizabeth Olsen is by now an Avengers-promoting Jedi; And young breakout Spider-Man star Tom Holland is still just just trying to comprehend his new reality. It's pretty much the evolutionary cycle of being a Marvel Cinematic Universe star, captured in three Instagram posts.
Meanwhile, poor Mark Ruffalo had to do the penance post, as the guy welcoming everyone to the surprise part - that he already spoiled!
