‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Puts Forth 1960s Casting Call

One can easily expect Avengers: Infinity War to reach almost every single corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Descriptions of the only convention exclusive footage already confirm New York, Wakanda, and unidentified locations in space to be key settings. With Thor: Ragnarok being the MCU film released just before Infinity War- it would not be surprising if Asgard would be featured as well. The whole universe has been expanding and setting up this grand scale of a film for almost a decade now. How far this scale could reach still remains disclosed. Fans have been recently picturing this event film based off footage descriptions, but now a very specific casting call has risen to give more clues.

Thanks to Central Casting Georgia, fans now know that Infinity War will be heading back to the 1960s! Some may overlook this casting call because the production is under the name of Mary Lou. This has of course been confirmed to be the cryptic production name for the film. The casting call reads as follows:

Secretaries: Looking for women who appear to be Caucasian, 20s-50s, to portray 1960s secretaries/clerks. Hair must be period-appropriate: no longer than shoulder length, no dye, no modern colors or cuts. Must be dress size 0-8.

Female Engineers: Looking for women who appear to be Caucasian, 20s-50s, to portray 1960s engineers in this VERY small scene. Hair must be period-appropriate: short hair, no longer than shoulder length, no dye, no modern colors or cuts. Must be dress size 0-8.

The call does describe the scenes as being “very small”. This leads to a few specific speculations. This call can lead to very quick flashbacks or scenes that that feature characters jumping through time. The latter seems somewhat plausible considering that the time stone will be in play. The former has a slight advantage when considering how important flashbacks have been to some recent MCU films. Civil War, Ant-Man, GotG Vol. 2, and Spider-Man: Homecoming all begin will flashbacks crucial to the story.  The call also highlights women in particular. Peggy Carter is probably the first character that comes to mind when a fan thinks about women in 1960s MCU. Could she be featured in these scenes? If this were to be the case, one could imagine that these scenes would somehow tie back to Steve Rogers. Out of all the time periods to choose from, why the 60s? Only time can tell how these scenes could fit into the grand cosmic scale that is Infinity War.

Avengers: Infinity War  is set to be released on May 4, 2018
