Marvel has every reason to hype up next year's Avengers: Infinity War, which is being billed as a culmination of the entire MCU since Iron Man in 2008. And now that filming is underway, they've released this behind-the-scenes video of a mysterious, destroyed-looking set with a bunch of actors that Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy fans might possibly recognize.

Introducing the footage is Robert Downey Jr., Tom Holland and Chris Pratt, officially confirming that Spider-Man and Star-Lord will appear after endless speculation. Pratt's already in costume, and it's worth watching alone to see Holland geek out about how much he loved The Avengers movies before ever knowing he'd be cast in one:

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and directors Anthony and Joe Russo also explain a bit about how the film was set up: with several cosmic Infinity Stones scattered throughout half the MCU films, and the recent Civil War (also directed by the Russo brothers) dividing up the Avengers before the mad titan Thanos descends on them. The sort of problems that only a major summer blockbuster can solve.

Along with the actual cast members, we get some assurance that the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy will indeed be teaming up here, not that most people hadn't already guessed. But the concept art of Thor and Rocket Raccoon fighting back to back is pretty intense, and it's a cool surprise to see. Other concept art of Thanos, Tony Stark and plenty more are littered throughout the video.

Although the Spider-Man/Star-Lord reveal actually came a bit earlier than that, with a five minute Facebook Live from Downey Jr. on set and answering some questions about the movie. Pratt appears at the very end feeling left out of the Q&A, and for some odd reason, lots of questions were about both Spider-Man and the mysterious camera man behind the phone:
