Production kicked off on a fourth film in the “Avengers” franchise last month and it was expected shooting would continue until the end of the year.
Now though, it seems filming may go on a bit longer as a new report indicates production is eyeing a shoot in Glasgow and Edinburgh in Scotland next summer. An insider for The Daily Record says:
“A second Avengers film is penciled in for filming in Scotland in 2018. People have been put on standby for another movie next year. It won’t be until July because the Infinity War premiere is around May and all the cast will be tied up doing promo for that for a month. It’s exciting news that people behind something as big as Avengers want to come back to shoot another film here. This is a fantastic boost for the Scottish film industry.”
That suggests Scotland will be the site of some scheduled additional photography, or simply a sequence that requires being done at a later date to the main shoot. Parts of “Avengers: Infinity War” were filmed earlier this year in Edinburgh which is playing itself. Glasgow, on the other hand, is expected to stand in for a major U.S. metropolis.
Marvel still hasn’t revealed the official title for a fourth “Avengers” and isn’t expected to do so until after “Avengers: Infinity War” is released on May 4th next year.
