The Marvel Cinematic Universe is 10 years old now, which is plenty of time for the cast, new and old, to become like a giant family. And the MCU family is the highlight of the new Infinity War behind-the-scenes featurette that Marvel Studios released today. The promotional campaign for the highly anticipated movie has mostly had a dark undertone to everything, even though there have been some humorous clips released. The new Infinity War behind-the-scenes featurette focuses on the fun that was had making the movie while reuniting with family and meeting new members for the first time.

Marvel Studios' Infinity War behind-the-scenes featurette begins with a previously released scene where Thor is on board the Milano on a table unconscious while the Guardians of the Galaxy are looking him over. Dave Bautista's Drax the Destroyer is definitely intrigued, noting his muscles and going on about how he's a real man. Just then, the scene stops as the cast starts laughing at Chris Pratt's response, panning over to reveal the Russo Brothers laughing as well. The featurette does an excellent job showing off just how well everybody in the cast of Infinity War gets along.

The family vibe is also explained by Gwyneth Paltrow when she talks about working with Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Favreau for the last 10 years. Elsewhere, Okoye actress Danai Gurira speaks about how much fun she had working with Elizabeth Olsen while Benedict Cumberbatch pokes fun at Chris Pratt. The video ends where it all began with Downey Jr. talking about his luck of being able to take part in the MCU and the upcoming Infinity War, admitting that it gets him a little misty-eyed to think about.

The new Infinity War behind-the-scenes featurette shows off a few little snippets of footage that has never been seen before, but nothing substantial. However, a new TV spot was released this morning as well that features Doctor Strange talking to Tony Stark about traveling into the future to figure out the odds of winning against the villainous Thanos. The odds don't seem to be in the Avengers' favor, especially when the spot begins with Thanos explaining that he could easily wipe everyone out with the snap of his fingers.

Infinity War is only a few weeks from hitting theaters and some lucky fans from around the world have been treated to the opening 30 minutes of the movie during mini screenings that have been hosted by the cast and the Russo Brothers. So far, the response has been overwhelmingly positive, which isn't entirely surprising, but it's still a good sign. It's been a heck of a ride for the cast of the MCU, and for some the ride is coming to an end, while for others, it's just getting started. You can watch the new Infinity War behind-the-scenes featurette below, provided by Marvel Entertainment's YouTube channel.
