Robert Downey Jr. and Marvel Studios bring fans the first look at Avengers: Infinity War, including news about the plot and team-ups!
Robert Downey Jr. really knows how to kick off the weekend!
Early Friday afternoon, RDJ announced via Twitter that he’d be hosting a Facebook livestream around 7:00pm EST. What should fans expect?
Well, the event occurred closer to 8:30pm, but let me assure you that it was definitely worth it!
RDJ was live from the Atlanta set of Avengers: Infinity War, and he began by answering fan questions announced by a somewhat unknown, but recognizable camera guy. RDJ was excited to be back with the Avengers crowd and promised some awesome surprises. He also shared that Captain America was still on Tony Stark’s “s-list”.
Soon afterwards, RDJ was joined by Anthony and Joe Russo, the co-directors of Infinity War. They came to get RDJ to film a scene that was starting in a few minutes, but before they ended, we learned a few more tidbits.
The camera guy was Tom Holland AKA Spider-Man, who would be part of Avengers: Infinity War. On top of that, Chris Pratt, dressed in his Peter Quill/Star Lord costume also showed up to usher RDJ to the next scene, confirming that the Guardians of the Galaxy would be joining the Avengers too!
Epic film will be EPIC!!!
After the live stream ended, Marvel Studios released a behind-the-scenes featurette confirming all of this, plus more!
It seems that at the beginning of Infinity War, the Avengers are still fractured after the events of Captain America: Civil War. And it’s in this discord, that the biggest, baddest threat we’ve been awaiting makes himself known. Yep, we’re talking about Thanos *SCREAMING*
You can watch both the Facebook Live video and Avengers: Infinity War featurette below for all the details!

“Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe as started in May of 2008 with the release of Iron Man 1.”
WOW WOW WOW! I cannot handle the feelings!
Well, we know that this year, we can expect Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (May 5, 2017), Spider-Man: Homecoming (July 7, 2017), and Thor: Ragnarok (November 3, 2017).
Then next year, Black Panther is out February 16, 2018, right before Avengers: Infinity War in May (May 4, 2018)! *EXCITE*
