Alright, DC. You’ve had your fun with the release of Justice League. Or maybe not given that it’s set to lose a lot of money for the company. Regardless, Marvel Studios is about to show you how an ensemble superhero movie is done once again. The first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War has dropped.
No matter how you feel about superhero films at this point, Infinity War is the big one. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building to this since for years now. The main villain, Thanos (Josh Brolin), had originally been teased during the end credits of The Avengers and we haven’t seen much of him since. He has appeared a handful of times in various capacities but fans are finally going to get a full dose this time as he’s coming to collect all six Infinity Stones and use them to his will.
The trailer does a good job highlighting the ridiculously huge Avengers cast. Seemingly every character is shown during the two minute and twenty-five second trailer. From Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Spider-Man (Tom Holland), and a bearded Captain America (Chris Evans) all the way to the frickin’ Guardians of the Galaxy, everyone is spotlighted. Say what you will about Marvel and the overabundance of superheroes but they certainly know how to build hype. Though there is one minor complaint. Is anyone else a bit put-off by Thanos’ look? His fleshy tone and phallic appearance? No? Nevermind.
Avengers: Infinity War opens in theaters on May 4th, 2018. Check out the trailer and comment below.
