Marvel Studios simultaneously started the respective productions for Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther late last month. It was expected that requirements of extras for both movies will be announced together as well. Here are the things that we know so far.
Atlanta Journal Constitution reported that Marvel studios are looking for extras for Avengers: Infinity War. Both genders from “any ethnicity” can apply for the role. The producers are looking for extras aged 15-50, but it was also specified that they are searching for “men with long hair and beards.” The extras must also be “comfortable with fake blood” and are willing to wear “special effects makeup.”
Avengers: Infinity War Casting for Viking Character Extras
It is highly likely that the extras will be playing as Asgardians based on the requirement that applicants should indicate the word “VIKING” in their application’s subject line The filming will take place from March 31 to April 7 at Fayetteville, a city located in North Carolina.
On the other hand, it looks like the extras casting for Black Panther will be subtle unlike in Avengers: Infinity War. Only “Asian men and women” from 25-85 years old can apply. The actors will be playing as “bartenders, card/game dealers, a beautiful female hostess and event guests” in the movie.
Filming for Extras of Black Panther Goes on Till Mid-Feb
The filming for Black Panther will take place earlier than Avengers: Infinity War. The production is set to take place from Feb. 7-9 or Feb. 13-15. Furthermore, extras will be paid $68 for eight hours, the same rate for Avengers: Infinity War sequel.
Avengers: Infinity War is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo. The movie will feature the biggest Marvel superhero team up, as they go up against a villain named Thanos. Characters from Guardians of the Galaxy have already been confirmed and more cast members will likely be revealed soon.
Avengers: Infinity War will hit theaters on May 4 next year. On the other hand, Black Panther will be released on Feb. 16, 2018. The movie is expected to be grittier and different compared to earlier MCU movies.
Chadwick Boseman will reprise his role as T’Challa in Black Panther. The character is also the current king of Wakanda due to the unfortunate death of his father in Captain America: Civil War. Michael B. Jordan plays as Erik Killmonger, the main villain in Black Panther. It was also confirmed that Sterlin K. Brown will play N’Jobu in the MCU movie.
