"Way, before I was in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, before I dreamt that I ever would be, is that their characters are you know, in epic proportion...

The 34-year-old actor also said the fans will be immensely satisfied with the upcoming "Avengers: Infinity War", which is slated to hit the theatres on April 27. "Their friendships, their love stories, their loss. I think those are the things that really tug on your heart and make you compel to really follow characters on their journeys.
