The Avengers: Infinity War opens next week, and Marvel fans are in for a real treat!
According to Anthony Mackie, when he was sent his version of the Infinity War script, it featured the final fight scene at a whopping 25 pages long!
Screenplays basically feature a page as being a minute of the movie, so that means the final battle would be 25 minutes in length!
Mackie was surprised to say the least when he read it, and fired off some e-mails back to Marvel about it!
"I got 25 pages, which was the final fight sequence. And I sent a long email, like, 'this movie is going to be awful, how does this work, there's no story, this is gonna be the longest fight sequence ever,'" Mackie said.
The good news is that the 25 minute fight scene is only a small part of the movie.
"And they're like 'no, there are 250 other pages,'" Mackie said. "Oh, oh. Alright. Alright. It doesn't get much better."
