Chris Evans has revealed that Avengers: Infinity War will see him and his co-stars work on the film for nine months.
The third Avengers outing has been split into two parts, with the first installment coming in 2018 with the second part coming the following year, and Evans – who plays Captain America in the Marvel series – has opened up to Esquire about the exhaustive shooting schedule he has lined up.
“You know, you plan around the Marvel responsibilities. You have to. We start [Civil War] in a couple weeks, and then that shoots until August or something like that. August or September.
“Then I’ve got some downtime and I can do with it as I please. I don’t know if I want to take time off or go pursue another directing job or find a movie to act in or, you know, do whatever I’m creatively inclined to pursue or wait, relax, enjoy my life. And then we start the Infinity War, I think, some time in the third quarter. Fall or winter of 2016. That’s going to be like nine months to shoot both movies back-to-back.”
Infinity War is expected to feature the current Avengers stars, as well as the main cast from Guardians of the Galaxy and possibly characters from new franchise The Inhumans. Previous Captain America helmers Joe and Anthony Russo will direct.
