Paul Bettany’s career is heating up this year, as he is appearing as Vision in Avengers: Infinity War, and an unknown role in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Bettany managed to reveal (Total Film via ScreenGeek) some info regarding the secrecy and scale of the production of the highly-anticipated Avengers sequel, despite being sworn to secrecy by Marvel.
Bettany talked about his fellow stars he was working with on the production, and was in awe by the amount of talent:
“It was insane. There were like major movie stars on that film, and they were referred to as like “number 36’. It’s crazy.”
Disney apparently put an insane amount of resources into the film, making it the biggest MCU movie to date:
“Then there’s the fact that I woke up, and I knew we were shooting in the middle of nowhere .We were shooting an outdoors scene, and we started to descend down into this valley. There’s this f**king town, and I was like “Where the f**k is this?” I got my phone out and there was nothing there, and that’s when I realized there were no buildings, it was all trailers. I’ve been making movies for 20 years and I’ve never seen anything that big or bonkers in my life…”
Directors of the film, Joe and Anthony Russo., went to great lengths to try and avoid details of the project leaking out into the public:
“When I read the script there were fake scenes in it. I got the directors on the phone and they walked me through what were the fake scenes. They’d had three leaks already, so they’d written a script with lots of fake scenes. There were three Hero iPads that had the only real script on them.”
Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.
Avengers: Infinity War will hit theaters on May 4th, while Solo: A Star Wars Story will be released on May 25th.
