Marvel Studios and IMAX have released a new featurette showing how Avengers: Infinity War fully takes advantage of the format and why it’s meant to be experienced in such a massive theater.
In the featurette, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige explained why filming the entire movie in IMAX was deemed a necessary decision:
“One of the early decisions we made on Infinity War…. We knew we wanted to big! The storyline of Infinity War is big! The cast roster and character roster of Infinity War is big! The visual effects, the worlds we visit are big! The movie had to seem big, and [directors Joe and Anthony Russo] said ‘Let’s shoot in IMAX.’ And the question up to that point was ‘Okay, well, which sequences?’ And they said ‘No — the entire movie should be shot in IMAX.'”

Here’s the official synopsis:
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
The currently-untitled Avengers 4 features a cast made up of many of the key players in Infinity War — alongside newcomers like Brie Larson and Evangeline Lilly — and is scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2019.

10 Characters That Need To Be Avengers In Marvel’s Phase Four
Avengers: Infinity War arrives this year, and will be followed by a currently untitled fourth Avengers film that will close off Phase 3 and will mark a new chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In Phase 4 it is safe to say audiences will meet a new roster of the Avengers.
Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America have been the pillars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since its inception, as their individual films have guided lead audiences into each Avengers film. But with the next two Avengers film it is safe to say the curtain will set for those three. That means the Avengers as audiences know them will change dramatically. This means the team will need some new members, ones that will make a big impression to fill the shoes of their predecessors.
While the status of other founding members like the Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye and more up in the air right now, part of the fun in the Avengers comics is the ever-changing roster. The latest roster for the Avengers needs to make a statement. This isn’t the same old Avengers, this is the beginning of a new chapter. Some characters should be upgraded, others will take center stage as the new tentpole franchises, and the Avengers will be new.
Here are the ten characters that should make up the roster for Marvel’s New Avengers. Click Next to get started!
