Avengers: Infinity War Set to Shoot in Scotland
The Scottish economy will be booming starting next month. And a big chunk of that is thanks to the beginning of filming for Avengers: Infinity War.
The Daily Record revealed that stars of the awaited Marvel Cinematic Universe instalment will be on their way to Scotland to film the Avengers: Infinity War and make use of the £400 million (approx. $487 million) budget of the movie.
According to the source, the secret deal between Disney and Marvel so that the first part of the third Avengers movie can be filmed in Glasgow, Edinburgh, and the Highlands specifically.
This filming project is supposedly the biggest to be made in Scotland. It’s also set to boost the Scottish economy by £10 million. Filming is set to start sometime at the end of February.
More than the finalized filming location, this is good news for Scotland’s economy, seeing as how Avengers: Infinity War is reportedly set to top World War Z, Brad Pitt’s epic zombie movie that had already entailed 1,800 cast and crew members. Marvel’s movie may come in a lot bigger.
“It’s a massive boost for the Scottish film industry. As is normal, Disney have been keeping everything top secret, but executives have been scouting locations across Glasgow, Edinburgh, and the Highlands.”
Avengers: Infinity War will be directed by the Russo brothers, and it’s set to premiere in theaters in May 2018. The cast includes Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlet Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Samuel L. Jackson, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Scotland native Karen Gillan.
