It looks like the Avengers: Infinity War premiere will take place in Edinburgh


The Russo Brothers, directors of Avengers: Infinity War have told fans to ‘get ready’ for an Edinburgh premiere of the film that was shot in the city over seven weeks last year.

Responding to an online campaign petitioning for the premiere to happen in Edinburgh, directors Anthony and Joe Russo, used twitter to tell fans ‘we’re on it’.

The film is expected to be one of the year’s biggest blockbusters and is due to be released on 27 April.

Joe Russo, Director Avengers: Infinity War said during filming last year; ‘When Edinburgh came up as a location option we jumped at the chance…The city is such a unique and iconic location, but one never seen as the backdrop for a big action film…’

Actors Dave Bautista and Karen Gillan, shared the link to a petition by Stirling based fan, Mae Trumata, resulting in the response from the official Russo Brothers account ‘Let’s do it, Dave. We’re on it. Get ready Edinburgh.’

Rosie Ellison, manager of the Film Edinburgh commission, who supported Disney and Marvel in the run up to and during filming in the city last year said: ‘We were very proud to host the T2 Trainspotting world premiere last year and were equally proud to be chosen as the only location in the world outside of the studio for Avengers: Infinity War. We’d be delighted to welcome the filmmakers back to Edinburgh to launch the film here, in the city of superheroes.’
