The dust has barely settled on Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War opening weekend and it's no surprise that their mega superhero mashup collected a titanic $641 million in global box office cash.
To elicit more enthusiasm for the bigscreen battle royale, Titan Publishing in London is releasing a premium tie-in coffee table book tomorrow, titled Avengers: Infinity War - The Official Movie Special.
Their in-depth, 96-page collection is crammed with concept art, insightful new interviews with cast and crew, behind-the-scenes stills, and illuminating facts about the Russo Brothers' monumental Marvel production. It's available in both softcover and hardcover editions on May 1, and should settle your cravings for more superheroic spectacle in the aftermath of the crazy comic book beatdown.
Check out our gallery below of alternate covers and exclusive interview pages featuring brand new conversations with Mark Ruffalo and Tom Holland about their experiences working on the film.
In Holland's lighthearted chat, he discusses the merits of growing up watching Marvel movies, Spider-Man's sweet new high-tech suit, and an amusing detail on exactly which of his fellow cast member's costumes he coveted the most. Hint: It isn't Mantis!
For Ruffalo's revealing dissection of the man/beast dynamics, we're afforded a penetrating look at the complex character of Marvel's Jade Giant and its rage-laced relationship with Bruce Banner following Thor: Ragnarok. Ruffalo explains more about the separation of anger he's experiencing as Infinity War progresses, and how this allows for a liberating resurrection for the brilliant-but-tormented scientist.
"Coming out of Thor: Ragnarok, Banner is no longer really linked to the Hulk through anger," Ruffalo said. "It’s always been that Banner was struggling with excitability because he was afraid to bring out the Hulk. So he always felt like he was sitting on his emotions."
