Robert Downey Jr tweeted a behind-the-scenes photo from Avengers: Infinity War - featuring a few of his superhero friends Benedict Cumberbatch (left), Mark Ruffalo (second from right) and Benedict Wong (right) all posing together in costume during a break from filming.

"Interestingly enough, I'll start out by saying Thanos, even though he's not a character that had a huge preexisting story in the Marvel universe".

Russo also mentions that Thor has "a really interesting arc" and a very significant role to play in the events of the movie.

"My favorite shot in the movie has already been seen, and it's when Thor, who's just totally gnarled up, turns and goes, 'Who the hell are you guys?' and you cut to the Guardians [of the Galaxy]".

Avengers 4: Captain Marvel Is On A Completely Different Power Scale

The co-director added that Thor will have a lot of screen time in "Infinity War". As it stands, the only superhero film that has ever taken in more money is the first "Avengers" movie (2012), but that film's $623 million haul is well within striking distance in the next week or two. After all, it's hard to see how Thor could withstand Thanos (Josh Brolin) seeming twisting his neck like that (then again, we're not totally clear on Asgardian physiology).

Whether or not we'll see this suit as exclusively art for the park remains to be seen but I'm sure that if he gets this new suit for the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, we'll see it introduced in Avengers: Infinity War somewhere. Those are moments Marvel fans have been wanting to see on the big screen for years, if not decades, and they're finally happening.

Reading between the oh-so-obvious lines, that's our biggest hint yet that relatively newer heroes - your Stranges and your Spideys - are going to be safe (for now) but the old guard, Thor, Cap, Hulk, and Black Widow to name but a few, might just be on borrowed time. Given it features almost every Marvel superhero introduced since 2008's Iron Man - except maybe Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) - that makes sense.
