The Avengers: Infinity War trailer has turned into a viral rage and generated tremendous excitement for what is the biggest movie of all time. Marvel has been super secretive about everything and anything to do with Avengers: Infinity War and just giving out glimpses of what they want us to know. This is not just for the public but even the stars in the movie weren’t allowed to read the entire script. It is said that the directors, Russo brothers, handed each of them one page of their script at one time.

“This gave way for the duo to maintain their secrecy about the plot which is exactly what even Marvel Studios wanted. However, one of the stars managed to crack the barriers and get his hand on the complete script, meaning that Dr Strange aka Benedict Cumberbatch is one of the few people who knows exactly what happens in the film. 

During a recent interview the 41-year-old British actor revealed, “I’m not supposed to have read the script, but I have. It’s just mind-blowingly epic. What I thought is, this just doesn’t stop. Once it starts, it does...not...stop!”

He also revealed that the film is ‘utterly relentless’ while painting a picture of the themes at its heart. “It’s just this horrible, brilliant, terrifying, at times funny, at times very moving, relentless action,” he explained. “It’s like everyone’s constantly in crisis, and catching up with themselves, and it’s really breathless to read a script like that. This isn’t a slow burn. You’re really thrown in helter-skelter. It’s got a lot of facets to it, but I think the main one for me was just how utterly relentless the events and action were.”

The film also stars Robert Downey Jr, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and others. It’s set to release on April 27 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
