Avengers: Infinity War could be the most expensive movie ever

Avengers: Infinity WarWhat do you get when you take the Avengers, add in the Guardians of the Galaxy, thrown in Doctor Strange, a bit of Spider-Man, Ant-Man, and Black Panther? Well, the most expensive movie of all time, according to The Daily Record.

Although Marvel’s highly-anticipated Avengers: Infinity War does not begin filming until February, the third installment of the superhero franchise is projected to cost an estimated $400 million, which would soar well past the budget of previous title-holder, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides ($378 million).

Infinity War is rumored to be filming in many different locations around Scotland, including Glasgow, Edinburgh and the Highlands, which surely factors into the film’s high cost.

While this whopping figure is yet to be confirmed, given the Marvel’s Cinematic Universe track record for costly comic-book films, it could likely hold up. Their most recent release, Doctor Strange, had a production budget of $165 million, and earned $657,655,294 worldwide. The Avengers franchise’s first two films are also a good indication of another hefty price tag.

The Avengers ($225 million budget) and its sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron ($250 million), have raked in over a billion dollars each, the latter of the two also placing the third for most expensive movie of all time.

There is still much unknown about the film concerning plot details and exactly which superheroes audiences can expect to see. However, what we do know is that Avengers: Infinity War will definitely be a (Hulk) smash hit when it soars into theaters May 4, 2018. After all, third time’s the charm! ~Ashleen Grange

    I worry it’ll be over saturated with superheros but I will still be first in line to see it! Then I fear there is nowhere to go from there. The super hero bubble will burst. 🙁

    Outrageous! I don’t understand why a film like this gets funding. Why don’t the filmmakers try telling a story that matters? Give this money to indie projects that actually mean something.

    CDubya don’t think of Avengers: Infinity War being over saturated with superhero’s because with the most powerful villain their facing they need all the help they need to face Thanos

    It’s all in the writing, the visual POW, and the money they pull in. Those numbers are crazy, but if they heavily favour the profit side, that means people want to see them. These visual extravaganzas are magnificent entertainment, especially on the big screen. I like good “small” films, too, but “big” wins at cinemas most of the time.
