Trivia: Despite its namesake, this film is based more on Marvel's "Infinity Gauntlet" storyline than it is "Infinity War." The latter storyline actually featured many of Marvel's heroes teaming up with Thanos to defeat a villain called the Magus.

Trivia: Directors Joe and Anthony Russo like to put in nods to their previous works in their MCU films. In this movie, a man closely resembling Tobias Funke in his "Blue Man Group" makeup (from the series "Arrested Development") is briefly visible inside of one of the Collector's cages behind Gamora for a brief instant. It's hard to spot, but he's there.
