The movie we have all been waiting for is nearly here and the excitement is mounting. Marvel has thankfully released another trailer to adhere to the impatient fans, and we are loving it. You can watch the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War for yourself here.
Infinity War is the grand finale we have been waiting for, and as expected, it combines nearly all our favorite heroes from the 18-film franchise. With the start of Iron Man in 2008, we have been hooked. For 10 years, we have been cheering on our favorite characters as they battle the baddies and it is all leading up to this year’s epic battle. The cast includes the Avengers, Black Panther, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and other power-endowed heroes. Thanos doesn’t stand a chance, or does he?
We meet Thanos six years ago in the first Avengers, and he makes an appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and of course, the Guardians of the Galaxy. We finally get to really see him in action as he attempts to take all six Infinity stones for himself. Known as the Mad Titan, Thanos doesn’t just want to rule the earth, he wants to rule the entire galaxy. While we don’t know the reason yet, I am sure he will let us know very quickly.
Impending Doom for the Avengers
“The entire time I knew him, he only ever had one goal… to wipe out half the universe. If he gets all the Infinity stones, he can do it with the snap of his fingers. Just like that.” These are the first words we hear in the trailer as the cameras pan over our heroes, looking up at the sky as a portal of some sort has appeared over New York City. We get glimpses of the different superheroes carrying two of the five previously seen stones – Dr. Strange and Vision.
As the team suits up and makes plans, the team comes together from across the globe. Peter Parker is seen slipping on his mask as he swings in instead of going to school like a normal New York teen (we miss Tony’s awesome take on the Spidey suit!) Tony flies in style with his new “Bleeding Edge” suit towards the spinning portal of death. Dr. Strange mentally prepares as the Time Stone glows green within the Eye of Agamotto.
Meanwhile in Wakanda
Across the ocean, Vision and Wanda are hiding out. We see Wanda worriedly looking at Vision’s own Infinity stone. Ever the dashing diplomat, Captain America is accompanied by Black Widow, War Machine, Falcon, and Bruce Banner. He arrives to make plans with the people of Wakanda. T’Challa and Okoye, with their Dora Milaje guards, greets them. Shuri even gets a glimpse in her lab as she examines a hologram of Vision’s head and the Mind Stone.
The camera pans to Peter Quill a.k.a. Star-Lord and Drax as they have their own meeting with Tony Stark and Spider-Man. Peter lets Tony know exactly how he feels in normal Peter fashion when he tells him, “Let’s talk about this plan of yours. I think it’s good, except, it sucks. So let me do the plan, and that way, it’ll be really good.” Later on, we even get to see teen Groot (who is actually Groot’s son which is just confusing).
The Avengers’ New Toys
We get a look at a few really cool new toys in this trailer as well. The Hulkbuster, Thor’s new weapon (we’re still mourning that hammer!), and Iron Man’s new suit of course. They’ll definitely need these new weapons at the advantage as Thanos has come with a team to back him up. This includes our old side-switching friend, Loki, which you can’t even be surprised about.
“The end is near,” Thanos warns us. The only question is – will it truly be the end for one of our favorite characters? With such a large cast, one is bound to be lost in this movie. We will be waiting with bated breaths as what promises to be the movie of the year barrels closer.
