Marvel‘s Avengers: Infinity War is meant to be a cosmic and epic film, where each corner of the MCU unites to defeat Thanos, whether that be on Earth or in space. That means that we’ll be seeing a wide array of planets in the film, including Earth. We saw in the trailer that premiered at D23 that some of the Avengers will be on a different planet at some point, but we’re not sure if all of them will leave Earth.
During the Marvel Press Line at San Diego Comic-Con, Cinema Blend got the chance to ask director Joe Russo how much of the film takes place on Earth:
“A good amount. It’s a lot of different narratives driving towards each other. A lot of different characters, so you have to tell a lot of story. And it’s a good mix between space and Earth.”
Knowing that Infinity War is the largest movie in the MCU to date, it makes sense that the film will focus on multiple narratives that take place in their own respective locations. It’ll be interesting to see which characters get to leave Earth and which stay, as it’ll definitely impact their character arc.
