Marvel Studios is assembling a star-studded cast for Avengers: Infinity War and the latest image from set brings Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) together. Even though Spider-Man: Homecoming comes out in less than a month and both Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther will hit theaters next, many fans are already keeping an eye on Infinity War. Thanos' tease from The Avengers will finally be realized on the big screen and his power will require an all-hands-on-deck approach for the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
This will bring almost every character into the fold throughout the former two-part event that concludes with the fourth Avengers movie. That will be the case for the stars of Ragnarok and Black Panther, and the latest selfie from the set brings together two of the biggest stars.
Boseman just recently reported to set on Infinity War following the production on his solo film and teased his work with Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) and Chris Evans (Captain America) in doing so. However, his latest Twitter update does not feature either of these stars and instead brings Black Panther and Hulk together.

Unless Ruffalo is randomly visiting the set of a movie he is also starring in, this should confirm he is also taking part in the scenes being shot currently. What exactly they entail is unknown, but they are exterior shots and the surroundings look closer to Wakanda than anything else. While this could mean that Hulk will help defend Wakanda at some point, that is not what is being filmed now as Ruffalo looks to just have some regular Bruce Banner attire on. Considering Boseman is sporting more of a regal look himself, and not his vibranium suit, this could be the calm before the storm or the Avengers regrouping.
Fans just recently got a look at Black Panther's world with the first Black Panther teaser trailer, and Wakanda continues to appear as though it will have a big role to play in Infinity War. Shuri (Letitia Wright) and M'Baku (Winston Duke) are both reportedly set to appear, with stand-in roles alluding to the Dora Milaje appearing as well. Plus, further confirmation of the Black Order's presence could bring an attack to the African country, especially if it winds up housing the Soul Stone. Either way, we will have to wait and see if Boseman continues to give sneak peeks at his experience and reveals other characters Black Panther will encounter.
