Avengers: Infinity War Will Shoot Back-to-Back Starting in Late 2016
Avengers: Age of Ultron hasn't even come out yet, but thanks to the aggressive marketing campaign, everyone is already a little fatigued with it and is looking towards the future (I wonder how fatigued we'll be for Infinity War when the time comes?). Chris Evans sounds a little tired as well, as he describes to Esquire how his entire life is Marvel, Marvel, and more Marvel through 2019:

"You know, you plan around the Marvel responsibilities. You have to. We start [Captain America: Civil War] in a couple weeks, and then that shoots until August or something like that. August or September... And then we start the Infinity War, I think, some time in the third quarter. Fall or winter of 2016. That's going to be like nine months to shoot both movies back to back [sic]."

Evans also waxed poetic about Marvel buddy Chris Hemsworth, whom he calls one of his "best friends": "Oh yeah, [Chris Hemsworth] is like a brother at this point. We've had a very similar trajectory in, at least, being welcomed into this world. We both took these [Marvel hero] roles. We were both timid and nervous and didn't know how it was gonna play out. It's been nice to kind of share this with him. We each have the standalone films as well, which can be a whole separate element of pressure and anxiety, and he's just been so helpful to me. Just to have someone else who's going through the same struggles I am." Aw.

And speaking of those anxieties, he said that he still gets nervous making a solo film, since unlike Avengers: Age of Ultron, he gets all the blame if it doesn't succeed. "Marvel's got such a track record for making quality work, you don't want to be a dud. But even their worst movies are better than what any other studio could hope to be making. It can only get so bad at Marvel."

Avengers: Infinity War pt 1 is set to come out in theaters on May 2, 2018, while Infinity War pt 2 is slated for a May 3, 2019 release.
