It Calls Back To The Original Avengers
The original Avengers film was an unprecedented move in film history. It took four existing franchises and mashed them up together in one big film. In that film, Nick Fury said the following memorable quote that relayed the impact of this idea:
“There was an idea, Stark knows this, called the Avengers Initiative. The idea was to bring together a group of remarkable people, see if they could become something more. See if they could work together when we needed them to to fight the battles we never could.”
In the trailer, we get a callback to this quote, this time spoken by members of the Avengers themselves. This is not only a great quote to come back to given the circumstances Earth finds itself in (with Thanos and all), but it does the double-duty of playing on our (the audience’s) inherent sentimentality of looking back at how far we’ve come.
It’s an effective approach, and helps to sell this trailer to huge fans.
It Reintroduces The Guardians of the Galaxy
Geeks like us knew these guys were coming. Ever since this gang was introduced a few years back, we knew it was only a matter of time before they came into the fold. However, mainstream audiences may not be so savvy to that idea, and as far as they know, that group may be relegated to its own side of the universe for the foreseeable future.
In showing these guys at the very end, it really drives the point home that Avengers: Infinity War will be (to use the Justice League marketing tagline) “all in.”
It really helps to separate this movie from the other Avengers films. We won’t just be dealing with the main gang of Avengers who know each other, but we’ll be seeing those from across the galaxy join in to take down this universal threat.
