“There was an idea to bring together a group of remarkable people. To see if we could become something more. So when they needed us, we could fight the battles that they never could.”

That was the great line Nick Fury spoke in that first Avengers film back in 2012, and they’ve since been milking that line in the marketing of Avengers: Infinity War ever since. And it’s quite fitting. Why not bring it all back around to the film that became Marvel Studios’ ambitious mission statement personified? In the new TV spot for the upcoming film, they do just that.

In this 30-second spot, they start off with a long shot of Thanos alongside his Black Order before cutting around to the dozens of Avengers that now populate the MCU. And I don’t just mean in the movie. This spot is called “Legacy” for a reason, and as such, it jumps around from a good portion of the films in the MCU, starting off with the likes of Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America: The First Avengers.

I get chills just watching this thing, and think back to 2008. I was in college at the time, and couldn’t be more excited for the upcoming Iron Man movie, and the rumors of it kickstarting a shared universe. If you had shown that version of me this 30-second spot, I would have completely lost my mind.

My press screening for Avengers: Infinity War has been secured, and I couldn’t be more excited to see how this all culminates.
