Trivia about Avengers: Infinity War.

  • Tom Holland was not allowed to read the script for this film since he revealed too many secrets for Spider-Man: Homecoming.
  • The Wakandan war cry "Yibambe" is Xhosa for "hold strong."
  • Security for the filming at Durham Cathedral was so tight that not even the Cathedral wardens were allowed access inside.
  • Just as they paid homage to their television show Community in the second and third "Captain America" films, the Russo Brothers paid homage to their other well-known show, Arrested Development, in this movie. In the series, the character Tobias Fünke (David Cross) paints himself blue to resemble the members in the Blue Man Group. In this film, blue Toby Fünke can be seen as one of the Collector's items - he can be seen behind and to the left of Gamora in one shot.
  • Hugh Jackman expressed interest to appear in an Avengers film, but he said he would only reprise his character, Wolverine, if he appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In December 2017, however, Jackman officially stated he would not be reprising the role and he would love to see someone else play the character. Logan was Jackman's last film as Wolverine.
  • The Russo brothers originally confirmed that Captain Marvel would be in this movie. However, Joe Russo later declared that the character would not, and she would instead make her debut in her own movie.
  • According to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, the Avengers are expected to have a "shakeup" in their team lineup between Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame. In other words, the roster is different from the prior two Avengers films.
  • The film takes place four years after Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Both films took place in the same year.
  • Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) had a new look for this film. At the end of Captain America: Civil War, Steve Rogers quit as Captain America, something which occurred several times in the comic book. For the first time, he assumed the identity of "Nomad." Rogers' costume in this film captured basic elements of the Nomad character, in that it is primarily blue and features yellow, disk-like objects attached at the collar. For the second time Steve Rogers quit, he was featured to have grown scraggly with a beard, and he would eventually shave the beard and create a new identity as "The Captain." Consequently, the physical appearance and costume for Steve Rogers is a combination of the two most popular times he quit being Captain America.
  • Robert Downey Jr. had a separate deal from his Marvel Cinematic Universe co-stars when he signed on to reprise his role as Tony Stark/Iron Man in subsequent Avengers films, after The Avengers. However, his appearances in Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming were not tied to this deal. These negotiations occurred separately, after he completed his contract to do the Iron Man trilogy.

Captain America: Civil War was the first Marvel Cinematic Universe film to incorporate the new cameras, but only for its airport sequence. This made Avengers: Infinity War the first non-documentary film to be shot entirely with IMAX cameras, although it did not use the traditional IMAX aspect ratio of 1.43:1 but rather the digital IMAX ratio of 1.90:1, which closely matches the 1.85:1 aspect ratio of The Avengers and Ant-Man.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed the movies as the culmination of the entire series from its beginning, with the first Iron Man movie. Feige also confirmed that the Avengers were broken into two sects in Captain America: Civil War, in order to set up Avengers: Infinity War. Feige described Thanos as, "The biggest, best and baddest villain that Marvel has ever had," and stated that Thanos would reveal his reasons for hunting down the Infinity Stones. Concept art was also shown depicting Rocket Raccoon fighting alongside Thor, it was recently revealed how the Guardians will meet the Avengers.
  • The filming at Durham Cathedral involved moving most, if not all, of the pews to make room for the film sets.

  • During the post-credits scene of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thanos grabs a Gem-less Infinity Gauntlet and says, "Fine, I'll do it myself." An Infinity Gauntlet has been seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe before, as it can be seen being held in the weapons vault on Asgard in Thor. In a recent interview with Kevin Feige, he was asked if the post-credits scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron was made to fix the continuity error of the Gauntlet being spotted in Thor. He stated "no", as there is in fact more than one Infinity Gauntlet in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The infinity gauntlet in Asgard was called a fake by Hela in Thor: Ragnarok.
  • Entertainment Weekly confirmed that Bucky Barnes the Winter Soldier will go by the code name of White Wolf in Avengers: Infinity War as he was called by the children of Wakanda in a post-credits scene of Black Panther. White Wolf in the comics was T'Challa's adopted brother Hunter who was the leader of Wakanda's secret police: The Hatut Zeraze.
  • As of the release of Thor: Ragnarok, five of the six Infinity Stones have surfaced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Space Stone (also known as the Tesseract) was first revealed in Captain America: The First Avenger, and now resides with Loki. The Mind Stone, which was housed in Loki's staff until Avengers: Age of Ultron, and now is in the possession of Vision. The Power Stone, first seen in Guardians of the Galaxy, is under control of the Nova Corps. The Reality Stone (also known as the Aether) was first seen in Thor: The Dark World, and was placed in the care of the Collector. With the destruction of the Collector's Vault in Guardians of the Galaxy, its whereabouts are unclear. The fifth and final known stone, the Time Stone (also known as the Eye of Agamotto), was revealed in Doctor Strange, and is under his protection in Kamar-Taj. The whereabouts of the sixth stone, the Soul Stone, is revealed by Gamora to Thanos in Infinity War on the planet Vormir.
  • Steve Rogers wields a new shield in this film, made from Wakandan vibranium, that splits apart into two armguards. This is based on two different shields Rogers wielded in the comics: one shield was provided by the Black Panther, and the other split apart into two guards.
  • Thor having lost his hammer Mjolnir in Thor: Ragnarok, he constructs a new hammer in this film, known as Stormbreaker. Stormbreaker is named for the Asgardian hammer given to the Thor's comrade Beta Ray Bill. It is a war hammer-axe, based on the Marvel Ultimate Mjolnir.
  • It has been confirmed by the Russo brothers that what happened in Captain America: Civil War will still continue in this movie, where the teams will still be divided until the time has come where they must stop Thanos.
  • This film is inspired by the following Marvel Comics storylines: The Infinity Gauntlet (Thanos forms the Infinity Gauntlet and becomes all-powerful), The Thanos Imperative (the Guardians of the Galaxy take on Thanos), and Infinity (the Avengers and Inhumans team up to battle Thanos). The Marvel Comics storyline of the same name, however, involved a battle between superheroes for the Infinity Gauntlet, and has nothing to do with this story. This battle happened after the events of The Infinity Gauntlet and Infinity Crusade, where in the Infinity Gauntlet, Adam Warlock and his Infinity Watch formed by Gamora, Moondragon, Drax the Destructor, and Pip the Troll, allied forces with Thanos in order to defeat Magus, Warlock's evil side, who was looking to reunite the Infinity Gauntlet to be all-powerful and in the Infinity Crusade, Adam Warlock, the Avengers, Thanos, X-Men, the Fantastic Four, and Silver Surfer unite to defeat the Goddess, Warlock's good side, who was looking to convert the entire universe to worship her and control everyone.
  • The official trailer for Avengers: Infinity War shows Spider-Man exhibiting his spider-sense ability, which was not clearly displayed in Spider-Man: Homecoming though it was seen quickly in Captain America: Civil War.
  • In the teaser trailer for this movie, shown at a San Diego Comic-Con, the shot seen before transitioning to the title card shows Thanos with a fully assembled Infinity Gauntlet. In Avengers: Age of Ultron, we get another look at the Gauntlet in the form of an ethereal image with four Infinity Stones set in their respective positions. With the red, blue, yellow, and purple Infinity Stones revealed and identified as Reality, Space, Mind, and Power, it is safe to assume that the orange gem set in the center of the Gauntlet and the green gem positioned atop one of the knuckles, are the Infinity Stones of Soul and Time respectively.
  • The Infinity Gauntlet shown in Thor has since been said to be a fake because in Thor: Ragnarok when Hela is walking through the vault she says about the Tesseract that it's not bad, she says that The Eternal Flame is "true power" and she pushes over the Infinity Gauntlet and yells "Fake!" at Skurge.
  • In Doctor Strange, it was confirmed that the Time Infinity Stone is green, and it's in the Eye of Agamotto.
