Take this, shawarma scene!
Marvel's "Avengers: Infinity War" is now filming down in the Atlanta area, starring everyone under the sun, so you had to know some ... likely or unlikely? ... MCU connections were going to be made on set. Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) recently confirmed there are about 62 Marvel characters in the whole thing, including around 32 just for one particular scene. It's massive. And it's Hotlanta, so you know the guys are going to be heading out for drinks to relax and cool down.
Robert Downey Jr., aka Tony Stark/Iron Man, just shared a bonding photo with his good pal Bruce Banner/The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), along with the two Benedict newbies from "Doctor Strange," Dr. Stephen Strange himself (Benedict Cumberbatch, in full goatie) and Wong (Benedict Wong).

Commenting fans are really digging all of the facial hair.
Cumberbatch's Dr. Strange will next be seen in "Thor: Ragnarok" -- which co-stars Ruffalo's Hulk -- jumping off from one of the end-credit scenes of "Doctor Strange." That comes out this November. Downey's Tony Stark will co-star in "Spider-Man: Homecoming," which opens in just a few weeks on July 7. And then they'll all be together for "Infinity War," which opens May 4, 2018. It remains to be seen who'll be around for "Avengers 4," which follows this in May 2019.
