AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR And AVENGERS 4 Reportedly Have A Massive $1 Billion Budget
It was rumoured to be the case a long time ago, but a new report appears to confirm that the combined budget of the next two Avengers movies will indeed be upwards of $1 billion. Read on for details...
Way back in 2015, Bleeding Cool reported that the next two Avengers movies would have a combined budget of $1 billion. Many scoffed at such a figure, but the site has now spotted a story over at The Atlanta Business Chronicle which seemingly confirms that earlier story. If accurate, this number makes these the most expensive movies ever made so Disney must be expecting two huge hits!
"We now have on the lot down there now the largest film production ever with a $1 billion budget," said Chick-fil-A CEO and Pinewood Atlanta Studios co-owner Dan Cathy, clearly referencing Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel, both of which are set to be released in 2018 and 2019 respectively.
That may seem like a lot of money to spend, but with The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Spider-Man all expected to appear, both making well over $1 billion makes perfect sense and means Disney will more than double their money (before we take merchandising, home video sales, and licensing partners into account). Before this, the movie with the highest budget was Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger with $378 million, so the studio spending $500 million on each isn't a stretch!
Are you excited to see how these two movies turn out? Do you think Disney is spending way too much or is that just the right amount for such massive releases? Let us know your thoughts below.
