Filming on Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” has been under way for the past week in Edinburgh, Scotland, and several of the key players, including Jeremy Renner, have already made their way to the set. Leaked photos have shown us Scarlett Johansson and Paul Bettany on location, with later videos showing Bettany’s Vision fighting with another powerful being. At the time, was unknown who Vision’s opponent might be, but the latest batch of set photos point to members of Thanos’ team the Black Order.
A fan managed to get a look at some of the filming in Edinburgh, capturing a photo and video of actors in motion-capture suits. While that may not be particularly interesting at first glimpse, the weapon carried by one of the men would seem to belong to the Marvel Comics character Corvus Glaive, a member of the Black Order.

For comparisons sake, here’s an image of Corvus Glaive.
Another video appears to feature a second actor, whom some theorize might be playing Proxima Midnight, another member of the Black Order. Given that the character is a female in the comics, though, and the actor in the motion-capture suit is clearly male, that one is a bit harder to guess properly.

“Kong: Skull Island” actor Terry Notary revealed earlier this month that he’d joined “Avengers: Infinity War” as Thanos’ “right-hand bad guy.” That, naturally, led to speculation that film will introduce the Black Order, a group of aliens gathered by the Mad Titan in Marvel Comics’ 2013 “Infinity” storyline to help him raze worlds and demand tributes from their inhabitants.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, “Avengers: Infinity War” brings together many of the key players from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to confront the threat posed by Thanos. Opening May 4, 2018, the film’s sprawling ensemble cast includes Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie.
