Behind-The-Scenes Of ‘Infinity War’ Without Visual Effects –

1

Executive producer Victoria Alonso says there are about 3,000 shots in ‘Infinity War’ and about 2,900 of them are visual effects shots. But, it’s not all blue and green screens; ‘Infinity War’ has more practical sets than you may have expected.

2

Thanos seems a lot less scary when you know it’s just Josh Brolin by himself in a motion capture suit.

3

Sometimes, Brolin’s costume included wearing a cardboard cut-out of Thanos’ head in order to give the other actors a point of reference while acting opposite him.

4

While you saw the Avengers fighting off a group of aliens, it was really approximately 70 extras and stunt people that were expanded to about 500 people digitally.

5

The Guardians of the Galaxy’s space ship is real, but maybe smaller than you would have imagined, with a blue screen as space.

6

When Doctor Strange gets tortured, the needles may not have been real, but Cumberbatch really was suspended midair.

7

The scene with Thanos adopting a young Gamora wasn’t purely CG. Many were in full costumes and makeup on set.

8

Peter Dinklage filmed alongside mini cutouts of his co-stars to appear as if he was towering over them.

9

Robert Downey Jr. only wore a piece of his Iron Man costume in some scenes.

10

When the group heads to the train station, that filming really took place at the Waverley station in Edinburgh, Scotland. Production also built several items, including a coffee shop there at the train station.

11

Cull Obsidian was really just a man – Terry Notary – in a motion-capture suit. Notary also did the movements for Teen Groot.

12

The giant battle in Wakanda was filmed outside in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia.

13

When Vision, Scarlet Witch, and members of the Black Order fight on top of a cathedral, it’s really the St. Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh.

14

This is what Corvus Glaive really looked like in his motion-action suit on the rooftop.

15

When Thanos blasts Star-Lord, Drax, and Nebula with the power stone, they were actually falling on set.

16

Thor really carried around an axe on set of “Infinity War,” but it didn’t light up.

17

When the actors were going up against Thanos, they were fighting a double on a platform.

18

Josh Brolin was really wearing a version of the Infinity Gauntlet when he delivered that life-altering snap at the film’s end.
