Two-part Avengers: Infinity Wars films to be shot using IMAX camerasBy Robin-Leigh Chetty 8 May 2015 | Categories: news
After we first watched Avengers: Age of Ultron (review), the scope of the action not only left us out of breath, but it also made us wonder how Marvel could possibly bring together even more superheroes for the Infinity Wars film slated for 2018/2019. According to reports by Variety, a bigger screen might just do the trick, as the two-part film will be shot entirely using IMAX cameras.
A similar tact was used for DC's The Dark Knight, which certainly upped the level of drama and scope for that film, and the franchise in general. The film will be helmed by the Russo brothers (Anthony and Joe), both of whom shared directorial duties on Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The pair will also be directing the third Cap film, Civil War, ensuring that the same style is kept throughout all Marvel's big superhero mashups over the next few years.
The Russo brothers also confirmed that they will be taking up to 18 months prepping for the Infinity Wars films, as they plan the complex filming that will indoubtedly be required.
As far as other films go, IMAX renewed its partnership with Walt Disney up until 2017, which could see such movie properties as Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Doctor Strange and The Jungle Book reboot be filmed using IMAX cameras as well.
