Avengers – ASSEMBLE (in Edinburgh)

Avengers
The Avengers has been a global smash

Fresh from being a magnificent backdrop in Danny Boyle’s T2: Trainspotting Edinburgh has opened her beautiful city gates to the cast and crew of mega American franchise, Avengers.

A six week filming schedule for the new Avengers: Infinity War movie is estimated to generate more than £10m for Edinburgh.

It is the largest and most complex shoot ever to film in historic Old Town and other locations in the capital’s city centre. More than 400 crew have been working on the project, which started in the city on Wednesday.

The production’s first schedule with cast in the city will be in mid-April.
Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Paul Bettany. Keep your eyes peeled – there’s a prize for the best selfie!

Avengers is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo. Mr Russo said: “When Edinburgh came up as a location option we jumped at the chance. The city is such a unique and iconic location, but one never seen as the backdrop for a big action film, which is incredibly exciting.

“We appreciate the entire city’s help and are excited to have such a beautiful and historic city in the film.”
