Deep breaths, everyone…
Holy fricking moly – the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War is finally here.
Marvel have finally dropped a teaser for their biggest (and hopefully best) film yet.
We know you don’t really care what we’re writing about, because all you want to do is see the trailer. So, let’s get that out the way:
Avengers: Infinity War is the 3rd Avengers films (after Avengers Assemble and Age of Ultron), and is coming to UK cinemas in April 2018. It’s the culmination of almost a decade’s worth of movies, of post credit stings, of character crossovers, and will feature the biggest number of supes in one film yet.
What brings them all together? Josh Brolin as Thanos, and his special glove (well, it is getting cold out), which he needs to complete with the Infinity Stones that we’ve seen popping up in various films throughout the cinematic universe.
So what can we learn from the trailer?
Here’s the headlines: Cap’s got a beardy new look, Bucky is free, and there’s almost every Marvel star yet included.
We seem to see the heroes in several groups – first, Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) coming across Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). Then Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) with Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) in Wakanda. And, right at the end, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) meeting the Guardians of the Galaxy (including Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana).
There’s also hint of a romantic moment between Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and a more humanized Vision (Paul Bettany), and we seem to see Loki (Tom Hiddleston) handing over the Tesseract to someone.
Not to mention, Tom Holland‘s arm hairs get a starring moment as Peter Parker spots an alien spaceship above NYC.
There’s a lot going on – so much that you have to wonder how they’re going to manage to juggle all these characters, give them enough screen time to shine AND have an actual engaging, well structured plot. But, after the critical success of Captain America: Civil War, we have to have faith in the Russo brothers to pull it off.
If the sight of all those supers running to camera wasn’t enough to get you excited, Vanity Fair also shared four of their fantastic upcoming covers featuring the whole gang in costume. Take a look below!
We’re don’t think we’ll be able to get rid of this grin until 2018. See you all then…
