Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther Put Out Calls For Extras

With two Marvel Studios filming simultaneously in the Atlanta area, the search is under way for extras for "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Black Panther."

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the "Avengers" sequel is looking for men and women of any ethnicity who look between the ages of 18 and 50-something for "fun" background roles. However, the film is especially looking for men with long hair and beards. If that's not enough to ignite fan speculation -- now taking bets on an Asgard scene! -- the newspaper adds, "You’ll need to be comfortable with fake blood and with wearing special effects makeup." (Emails to the casting agency should include "VIKING" in the subject line, so, yeah, Asgard.)

The call for "Black Panther" extras is more straightforward, suggesting a casino or gala scene, with Asian men and women from ages 25 to 85 needed to portray upscale guests, a bartender, card dealers and a hostess "at a very nice event."

Both scenes will be filmed at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayetteville, Georgia, previously used for "Ant-Man," "Captain America: Civil War," "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" and "Spider-Man: Homecoming." The "Avengers" scenes are tentatively scheduled to shoot for six days, from March 31 to April 7, while "Black Panther" is broken into two three-day sessions: Feb. 7-9 and Feb. 13-15.

Directed by Ryan Coogler ("Fruitvale Station," "Creed"), "Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan,Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis. The film opens Feb. 16, 2018.

“Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T’Challa’s mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.

Directed Joe and Anthony Russo (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Captain America: Civil War”), “Avengers: Infinity War” boasts a sprawling ensemble cast that's so far confirmed to include such actors as Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Chris Pratt, Jeremy Renner, Benedict Cumberbatch, Brie Larson, Josh Brolin, Karen Gillan, Zoe Saldana and Pom Klementieff. However, they’re only for starters, as the film draws in most of the key players from all corners of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The film arrives May 4, 2018, followed by an as-yet-untitled sequel on May 3, 2019.
