Some new information for Avengers: Infinity War is coming to light thanks to a set visit that Marvel Studios held during the production of the movie. Several outlets were there during a scene being shot that included Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Rhodie (Don Cheadle), Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and Vision (Paul Bettany) as they landed a Quinjet in Wakanda looking for some help from Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman).
Several outlets have posted this scene description, but the most detailed that I've seen comes from io9. The description begins as the Avengers team exits the Quinjet to meet T'Challa and members of the Dora Milaje which includes Okoye, who is played by Danai Gurira.
If you don't want to know any more information beyond that, don't read any further.
As King T’Challa walk up the platform to greet the heroes there are other members of the Wakandan army who walk onto the Quinjet to help a wounded Vision and Scarlet Witch off.
As it was previously revealed, Captain America and his team bring Vision to Wakanda for protection. Thanos and his goons are after the Mind Stone in his forehead, which is what gives him life.
Here is how the scene plays out:
The set for this one scene alone includes half a Quinjet, a massive platform with about 20-foot-high fencing on one side, and about 180 degrees of green screen that stands in for Wakanda.
“How big an assault?” T’Challa asks after the initial greeting.
“Quite an assault, sir,” Cap replies.
“Well, I have my King’s Guard. The Dora Milaje—” T’Challa says, but is interrupted off-screen.
“And a semi-stable 100-year-old man,” adds Bucky.
Bucky (Sebastian Stan) and Steve Rogers reunite with a hug. “How you doing, Buck?” Cap asks.
“Not bad. So… little green men?”
“Not little. Not green,” says Widow.
Falcon expresses some doubts about Bucky’s mental state. “I just want to make sure you aren’t going to snap when someone says ‘baloney sandwich,’” he jokes.
“Not baloney,” says Bucky.
“Eggplant? Rancho Cucamonga?” Falcon retorts, spouting off a few more improvised words in the process. Then he ends with...“I still hate you.”
This is just a fun little scene. Of course, the Avengers can all thank Bruce Banner for the heads up on the big Thanos threat, since he managed to somehow escape and get to Earth. The big question is, will it really give them an advantage? Will Earth's Mightiest Heroes actually be able to stop Thanos? I guess we'll have to wait and see!
Avengers: Infinity War opens on April 27th.
