Post the roaring success of The Avengers and Age of Ultron, Marvel Cinematic Universe is prepping up for its highly anticipated third roll out of the series – The Avengers: Infinity War. Scheduled to kick-start shooting in February, the superhero franchise is projected to cost an estimated $400 million, thus making it the most expensive movie ever made. While there is no confirmation on the proposed budget, considering Marvel’s knack for producing pricey comic – book films, this could certainly hold up to be true. Currently, this title is upheld by Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides for its $378 million budget.
Anticipated to entail as many as 67 characters including Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, as well as the Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange and Spider-Man, the overbearing cost outlays seem like a fair deal. Further, the film offers audiences their first encounter with Brie Larson as Captain Marvel. The enticing superhero sequel is planned to be shot in various locations across Scotland, including Glasgow, Edinburgh and the Highlands, thus factoring in onto the film’s massive budget.
The Avengers franchise has earned an infamous ding for rolling out “top -of – world” costly movies. The Avengers ($225 million budget) and its sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron ($250 million), have collected over a billion dollars each, with the latter also ranking as the third most expensive movie of all time. The much awaited Infinity War will be released in May, 2018. Here’s hoping turns out to be a smasher, quite like its roof-shattering budget.
