Did the Actor Shoot it in the Philippines?

According to the movie-making company Indochina Productions, who took part in the production of the film, they shot in the Philippines’ Banaue Rice Terraces.

ABS-CBN News also cited that the Philippines’ famous tourist spot can be seen towards the end of the movie when the villain Thanos walks out of a nipa hut in the ridged rice paddies. The scene came out from the comic series “Infinity Gauntlet” where the villain retreats to a farmland.

However, the actor who portrayed Thanos, Josh Brolin, revealed that he did not go to the Philippines to shoot the film. Instead, video footages were taken by Indochina Productions and visual effects were applied.
