If Avengers: Infinity War is even half as entertaining as star Anthony Mackie's recollection of a scene with 40 superheroes on set, then Marvel Studios may have a blockbuster for the ages on its hands.
Appearing over the weekend at ACE Comic Con in Glendale, Arizona, alongside Sebastian Stan and Chris Evans, the Falcon actor recalled just one day on set, and continued his good-natured feud with Tom Holland in the process.
“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," Mackie said, "[...] and you know, all of us are on set and it’s like 40 superheroes. I look to my right and I see Tom Holland and Dave Bautista. 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 Bautista jumps up and does a kick-punch move and I was like ‘Yo, you’re about to kill him!’”
He explained there were so many moments when it was difficult not to observe some kind of amazing interaction between cast members. Hopefully there will be plenty of talk about what it was like on set now that filming has ended.
Avengers: Infinity War will arrive in theaters on May 28. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, the film stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Anthony Mackie as the Falcon, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Tom Holland as Spider-Man, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Chris Pratt as Star Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Vin Diesel as Groot, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, and Josh Brolin as Thanos.
