Today marks the first day of shooting on the highly anticipated “Captain America: Civil War” with that project to continue shooting for the next few months. Of course Marvel Studios is already looking ahead towards its two-film “Avengers: Infinity War” saga and many have wondered when shooting on that project will begin.
Though conducted a few weeks ago, actor Chris Evans’ interview with Esquire magazine has just gone online and he talks about the time table of his Marvel filming commitments:
“We start [Captain America: 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.”
Anthony and Joe Russo are set to helm the two-part “Avengers: Infinity War” films which Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are penning. The films hit cinemas in May 2018 and May 2019.
