The video update offers a sneak peak into the studio set, supposed to resemble space. The squad takes a break from the first day of shooting to comment about their experience throughout the films and their feelings on the big production.

The film’s producer, Kevin Feige, and movie directors Anthony and Joe Russo also appeared in the video talking about why the Avengers-Guardians of the Galaxy crossover is worth the wait.

The promising film follows the superhero league as they have to overcome a rough patch to fight their “biggest, the best, the baddest villain we’ve ever had, the most frightening villain that the Avengers have ever faced,” Feige pointed out in the announcement. The villain Thanos is going to be personified by Josh Brolin, as reported by MTV News.

The directors are really excited to see well-developed characters team up for this over-the-top adventure. They talked about how they used other films of the franchise and related them to each other to be able to set the plot, and the mood, leading up to this production which is the “culmination of Marvel cinematic universe.”

Others characters involved in the Marvel comic movies are also expected to make a comeback in this new take, including Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange; Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk; Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow; Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye; and Karen Gillan as Nebula, as detailed by the Daily Mail.

Filming is scheduled to start by the end of February and take about six months to complete. An insider revealed that executives had been scouting locations in Glasgow, Edinburgh and the Highlands to use for filming in what could be “massive boost for the Scotish film industry” and exciting information for expecting star-spotters. He added that Disney is still keeping these details a secret, according to the Daily Mail.
