Avengers: Infinity War will have no trouble topping Captain America: Civil War‘s airport fight, according to Anthony Mackie who recently teased an action sequence much grander in scale. Marvel Studios is pushing the boundaries of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Infinity War. In the latest effort to wow audiences, the studio has brought together nearly every single hero in the MCU to try and defeat Thanos.

Based on the footage description for the Infinity War teaser shown at D23 yesterday, it sounds as though Marvel will indeed deliver when it comes to fan expectations. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo are taking what they learned from Civil War and are applying it to much a larger, cosimc scale, which, as far as Mackie is concerned, results in one insanely long, jaw-dropping sequence.

Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan spoke to GMA about Infinity War and were asked about the scale of the upcoming Marvel film. Both actors were part of Civil War‘s incredible airport sequence, but that may pale in comparison to what is in store for Infinity War.

As is always the case with interviews, there is a strong chance that some of these details have been exaggerated. For instance, there are not 100 Avengers, so the cast won’t be quite that big in this battle scene. However, with Thanos’ power and the Black Order on the opposing side, it will take an all-hands-on-deck approach from the MCU heroes to defeat him. If it took 12 heroes roughly 15 minutes to end in a draw, doubling the time and increasing the scope is necessary for these new adversaries.

Unfortunately for the Avengers, it sounds as though they will have a rather difficult time succeeding in Infinity War. However, even if they end up on the wrong side of Thanos’ plans, the battle’s scale will likely leave audiences in awe. Given the heavy tease that several Marvel heroes won’t make it out of the third Avengers movie alive, it could make for a comic book-inspired action sequence that will restructure the MCU for years to come.

As grand as the airport battle was, some still criticized the battle for having relatively low stakes. The epic Avengers: Infinity War skirmish Mackie and Stan are teasing likely won’t have that to worry about, as this time the fate of the entire galaxy will be at stake.
