Anthony Mackie, who plays Falcon in Avengers: Infinity War, recently appeared on Good Morning America. He mentioned how he only got part of the script, which was the final fight that took up 25 pages.The GMA video is shown below and you can go to 1:30 to hear the quote for yourself:

The directors of the upcoming film, Joe and Anthony Russo, have described the final fight in the film as a splash page that folds out into a larger splash page in a comic:

Joe: We have like an equivalent that’s like, you know if you had a comic book and you open it up to your double panel and then you fold it out. And then you folded it out again and again.

Anthony: And you have another comic book laid out next to it.

Joe: So we have the equivalent of that in this movie.

For those that don’t know, a splash page is a type of panel structure in a comicbook where the entire page is one panel. These pages are rare and used to powerfully show a momentous moment, for example in Amazing Spider-Man #50:

A fold-out splash page was used in The Ultimates, a Marvel comic that of the Marvel Ultimate Universe, where the Ultimates served the role of the Avengers:

A scene like this in the film is sure to be momentous and the fact that it took up 25 pages further proves that.
