Joe Russo Confirms to Start Filming Avengers 4 in Two Weeks

The production on Avengers 4 is starting sooner than most would have expected.
While recently speaking with ComicBook.com, director Joe Russo revealed that the principal photography on Avengers 4 is set to begin in two weeks, leaving just a little less than a month break in between the filming schedules for the two films:
“It’s crazy man, we just wrapped the first movie a week ago and I start shooting the second one in two weeks. It’s a crazy schedule.”
That means Avengers 4 will enter production a full nine months before Avengers: Infinity War opens in theaters. It’s a logistical necessity if Marvel Studios wants the fourth Avengers movie to open just a year after Avengers: Infinity War, as is currently the plan, but it still says something about the confidence that Marvel has in the Russo brothers as directors.
Here's the official synopsis of Infinity War:
"As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos."
"A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain."
Avengers: Infinity War is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, and stars Robert Downey Jr., JoshBrolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, JeremyRenner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, BenedictCumberbatch, PaulBettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong,Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Benicio delToro, Tom Holland, and Anthony Mackie.
Avengers: Infinity War is scheduled for theaters on May 4, 2018. The sequel will bow the following year, on May 3, 2019.
