It's no secret that Avengers: Infinity War was a massive film, bringing characters from all facets of the MCU into an exciting world-saving adventure. The 2018 blockbuster delivered numerous memorable moments , ranging from Thanos' game-changing snap all the way to Thor's mind-blowing entrance in Wakanda.

That said, it's fair to say that Infinity War is part of any MCU fan's top 3 when ranking the Infinity Saga. Clearly, the Avengers sequel left a mark in the eyes of the viewing public, and this is still apparent even today .

While it has been three years ever since the film's debut, Infinity War is still being celebrated by fans and even cast members . Last year, the Russo Brothers even joined a virtual watch party for the film , with the directing duo sharing interesting tidbits about Easter eggs and several behind-the-scenes stories.

Now, a new batch of photos has emerged from the set of the billion-dollar MCU film.


In celebration of Josh Brolin's birthday, Iron Man actor Robert Downey Jr. posted an image of him and Brolin on the set of Avengers: Infinity War . This moment was taken from the pair's intense confrontation in Titan.

Infinity War served as a perfect moment for the MCU stars to connect and catch up, and these new set photos are prime examples of that.

In the years leading up to Infinity War , the meeting of Tony Stark and Thanos was one of the most-anticipated, and the film no doubt delivered on that end. Now, this latest behind-the-scenes peak provides an added glimpse towards that impressive moment, showcasing the two stars as they execute the scene to perfection.

While the battle between the Hulk and Thanos was short-lived in Infinity War , it's still fascinating to see the friendship between Ruffalo and Brolin off-screen. It's a given that the rematch between the two powerhouses will not happen anytime soon, but fans should be aware by now that anything is possible in the MCU.

Overall, these photos serve as a fitting reminder of the triumph of Infinity War while also showing the bond between the actors that made the movie iconic in many ways.
