I know why you’re here. I’m not going to waste any of your time, I’m just going to go ahead and get out of this thing’s way.
Behold: the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War!
Wow. The only word that comes to mind to succinctly describe this trailer is epic, almost Lord of the Rings-esque. Infinity War looks to be something truly climactic in scale. Which is fitting, considering it’s the first half of the culmination/finale of 10 years worth of films. Damn.
Unsurprisingly, everything in this trailer is absolutely phenomenal. There’s a palpable sense of dread throughout the trailer. The Avengers have never faced a threat on the scale of Thanos before, and this trailer really sells me on the fact that some Avengers will fall. This feels like it’s going to have a more somber tone, comparable to the Russos’ previous Captain America: Civil War and Winter Soldier as opposed to Joss Whedon’s more comedic Avengers: Age of Ultron.
It looks like we’re going to get different teams of Avengers to organize the frankly ludicrous amount of characters in this film. We have Black Panther, Hulk, Bearded Cap and friends leading the charge against an army of aliens in Wakanda. Stark, Strange, Spider-Man are going head to head against Thanos in New York. And Thor looks like he’s going on some sort of cosmic adventure with the freakin’ Guardians of the Galaxy.
Vision looks like he’s in for a bad time.
Noticeably absent are Hawkeye and Ant-Man. It’s been rumored that Ant-Man will play a fairly small (heh) role in Infinity War due to some microverse shenanigans with Wasp, but the lack of Hawkguy does not bode well for his fate in Infinity War. One thing’s clear, someone isn’t making it out of this.
I’m also extremely happy that Marvel remembered they have an iconic musical motif in the Avengers theme. It’s been too long.
Well, we’re a little over five months out from the beginning of the end, folks. Are you guys ready for Avengers: Infinity War?
