The actor was speaking in a TV interview when he hinted that he will have a very small presence in the new movie.
Although it’s clear that he’s joking when it comes to precisely how small his involvement is, it’s still something of a confirmation that the screentime between 60+ Marvel heroes will be a little thin.
“No wonder I only have, like, four lines in the whole movie,” he told Entertainment Tonight.
“It’s like the first day of school when you all come back,” Anthony Mackie added.
“Then by the end of the shoot you want to kill everybody!”
Scarlett Johansson added of the making of the ensemble blockbuster: “A lot of us have kids now – when we all started out we were young and unafraid…”
Avengers: Infinity War will also star Josh Brolin as Thanos, and he was recently quoted as saying that he’s seen half an hour of the finished product.
“I’ve seen 30 minutes of Infinity War – I thought it was amazing,” he told Flickering Myth.
Of Deadpool 2, in which he also appears, he added: “Deadpool, I know it’s going to be very fun and funny and fresh because it’s very different to the first film.
“I really enjoyed them both. I didn’t think I would, but I did.”
Avengers: Infinity War is out on April 26 in the UK.
