No one at Marvel Studios wants to talk about Avengers: Infinity War just yet. The film is fourth in line behind Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, and Black Panther on the release schedule. Still, everyone else wants to talk about it.
On the red carpet of the premiere of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was probed for details regarding the massive upcoming Avengers ensemble flick by Variety. While he managed to remain tightlipped about the production, Feige did spill some interesting new details about what sort of dynamic the Marvel heroes will have.
"Not much," Feige said, trying to dodge spoilers before adding, "Spider-Man will be there."
With a few more questions, Feige teased the fun new element of the film.
"We're filming in Atlanta right now," Feige said. "It's going very well. It's going very well and every day there are shots, there are images, there are pairing of characters you've never seen before on-screen that, again, I'm very lucky to do what I do. I'm very thankful to do what I do. I do it because I geek out for these moments. I geek out for a moment like this, debuting a Spider-Man in the MCU for the first time. In Infinity War, every single shot of every single scene is a geek out moment."
If anyone can handle character pairings in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it is the sibling directors Anthony and Joe Russo. The two helmed Captain America: Civil War which divided the massive roster of Marvel characters into teams which saw major pairings for story arcs involving characters on opposite sides. For example, Scarlet Witch and Vision had their own arc, adjacent to Hawkeye and Black Widow's development, all while Tony Stark and Steve Roger's differences remained at the forefront.
