With production ramping up on Avengers: Infinity War, fans are beginning to more updates on the film's production. The blockbuster has been busy filming abroad as it made rounds in Scotland, but the feature has since had a change of scenery. Now, thanks to directors Joe and Anthony Russo, fans have a new look at where the Avengers film is - and it will remind you of a certain country.
Over on Instagram, the Russo Brothers posed for a photo update which sent fans reeling. The image sees the two directors driving a terrain vehicle loaded with camera equipment. Surrounding by trees, the duo are seen sitting amongst a grassy field, and the picture came with the following caption: "Tootsie Roll and Winter Fresh, deep in the Serengeti."
No Avengers actually appear in the behind-the-scenes snap, but the caption does have fans buzzing. The nod to the Serengeti alludes to Africa as the continent hosts that ecosystem in its northern countries. The reference compounded with Chadwick Boseman's recent filming has got fans thinking Avengers: Infinity War will partially take place in Wakanda.
So far, there is plenty of circumstantial evidence pointing to the country's return. Casting calls for the feature have sought out extras who could portray Wakandans. Also, Black Panther will see supporting characters like Shuri, M'Baku, and Man Ape appear in the impending film. Boseman first had fans speculating about Wakanda when he posted a picture of his set chair for the film on Twitter, and the seat was partially hidden by a traditional drum.
And, now, it looks like the Russo Brothers have all but confirmed the shooting speculation with their own social media update.
You can check out the first synopsis for Avengers: Infinity War below:
"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."
Avengers: Infinity War is described by Marvel Studios as the culmination of everything in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since Iron Man in 2008. The movie is filming now under directors Anthony and Joe Russo, from a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
