It’s the crossover Marvel fans have been begging for, and in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War – fans will finally get to see The Avengers team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy. Chris Pratt has taken time out of talking about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 to reveal just how big the upcoming Avengers movie really is.
Talking to the Toronto Sun, Chris Pratt revealed that Infinity War will be a bigger spectacle than any of us are anticipating;
“Well, so far, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the biggest spectacle movie of all time — that is all time up until now. Avengers [Infinity War] is going to be a pretty big spectacle. I think you’re talking 40 heroes — that is a huge spectacle. I was using James [Gunn’s] vernacular by calling Vol. 2 the biggest spectacle of all time. I heard him say that and I thought, ‘That sounds right.’ But I have to amend that. I think this sequel transcends the genre in a way. It’s a deep motion picture and something different than just a big spectacle film. There’s a difference between dime-store novels and literature and this is like literature. It’s going to stand the test of time. It’s maybe this decade’s movie, if not a longer period of time.”
With so many stars set to land in the movie, it’s easy to see how Pratt can make these comments.
Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige recently said that the third Avengers movie will see things being done “that have never been attempted in a comic book film.” Considering that it’s serving as the culmination of 18 Marvel films and ten years of build – no pressure at all on the studio.
Are you excited for the upcoming Avengers movie? How on earth can Marvel match expectations with one of the decades biggest movies?
