Avengers: Infinity War is set to hit theaters in May and while that’s a while away, we’re still getting a few goodies from the cast. Anthony Mackie was at ACE Comic-Con in Phoenix with his Infinity War co stars and they sure did talk a lot about the Avengers sequel. Mackie described a scene where 40 Avengers were on set and even shared a Spider-Man and Drax story that will make you laugh.
“There was one day we were on set and were doing this scene that’s in the trailer where we’re all running to battle, you know, all of us are on set and it’s like forty superheroes. I look to my right and I see Tom Holland and Dave Batista. I see them in the corner and Tom is literally the size of Dave’s leg, I don’t know what they’re talking about but Batista jumps up and does a kick-punch move and I was like ‘Yo, you’re about to kill him!’”
Mackie’s Captain America co-star Chris Evans shared the same sentiments about the epic Avengers: Infinity War scene.
“That day was really fun, I know the day you’re talking about, that day was [snickers]…you’ll see. It was a great day with a lot of great people.”
For those of you that were wondering if Falcon would everything wear his costume from the comics, it seems that Mackie is certainly trying to make it happen.
I’m pushing for it, I’m pushing for it, I’ve been pushing for spandex for eight years, they won’t give it to me.”
Following Captain America: Civil War, The Avengers were dealt a severe blow. Captain America rebellion against the Sovokia Accords put some of the Avengers in a situation where they’re fugitives in hiding. Mackie was asked where all of the Avengers were at the time of Infinity War and he said this:
Coming off such a huge battle that these characters are coming off of, everybody’s trying to find their footing again, everybody’s trying to figure out where they are and how they’ll be accepted and looked upon, not only by the rest of the world but by the other heroes since we’ve been separated. So that’s kind the overall idea of where we’re coming from and how do we get out of that to save the world.
