According to The Daily Record, Disney and Marvel have set on a location and a date for the third installment of their biggest franchise. Avengers: Infinity War is due to start shooting by February 28 at different locations around Scotland including Glasgow, Edinburgh and the Highlands for over 6 months.
The movie, which reportedly has a budget of 1 Billion dollars, is expected to be a great boost for the Scottish economy by at least £10 million (approximately 12 million dollars), effectively making it the biggest film shot in Scotland, followed by World War Z which generated around £3.33 million in 17 days of filming (4.05 million dollars).
Lewis Macdonald Scottish Labour culture spokesman said:
‘The fact such a successful franchise will be filmed in Scotland will excite the fans but also provide a welcome boost to the economy.’ He continued ‘I hope the producers take advantage of the skills people in Scotland have to offer, so as many local people as possible can find work and Scotland’s fantastic creative community can go from strength to strength.’
With such an improvise cast, and it being the biggest of any Marvel movies yet, it is easy to figure out why the movie will cost so much and it’s great to see that the investment will also produce opportunities for smaller business.
Remember to be on the lookout for set photos starting March.
