Avengers: Infinity War came, we saw and it conquered the global box office. The movie is now the highest grossing superhero film ever with over $2 Billion in aggregate box office collections worldwide. It also became the fastest movie title to reach $1 Billion marks in record time i.e 8 days.
The hype surrounding the movie was real and it created mass hysteria in the comic-book fan community. It was the ultimate comic-book extravaganza with a great story, amazing direction, stunning cinematography and best MCU villain ever. It was the most anticipated movie of not just 2018 but the whole decade as 18 Marvel movies preceding Infinity War led us to this epic clash between Mad Titan Thanos and Avengers Assemble.
The ending of the movie left us scarred and wanting for more as half of our beloved superheroes turned into dust after Thanos snapped his fingers which exterminated half of all life in the galaxy. It felt like GOT level cliffhanger which can only be resolved in Avengers 4.
Soon, the digital editions, DVD/Blu ray editions will be released with a lot of bonus features. The Russos claims that there are a lot of deleted scenes and extra material in the Blu ray disc. Here’s what they said:
“We were very tight with the scripts on Winter Soldier and Civil War, so there weren’t a lot of extras. This is a very big movie with a lot of characters in it, and we played around with a lot of improvisation, because we had new chemistry that we were defining between characters. It was the first time ever that all these characters were on screen together, so we played around with quite a bit of footage, and I think there will be some good stuff for the DVD.”
