In terms of the massive undertaking to put every actor who ever starred in a Marvel movie into “Infinity War,” Brolin said, “This is a one-time deal. To put this many successful actors together is such a pain in the ass, but it’s been worth it.”

“We’re doing two movies. One back-to-back, and this is it for us. Then we’ll go off in another direction, but this is a very, very, very ambitious project that I think is going to pay off in a big way.”

“Avengers: Infinity War” opens May 4, 2018.
