It’s finally here, folks! After nearly a decade of well over a dozen films, we get to see all of the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy team up against the big bad Thanos for Avengers: Infinity War. Well, at least in trailer form. After hyping up this latest trailer, Marvel Studios has finally released the brand new official trailer. Check it out above!
Avengers: Infinity War will serve as one of the culminations of the past decade of Marvel Studios films. If we thought that the heroes they brought together in Captain America: Civil War was big, we have no idea.
While that film only Brough together most of the Avengers at the time, this one looks to bring together everyone from Cap to T’Challa, all the way to the Guardians across the galaxy. After being teased since the end of the first Avengers film, we’ll also get to see what Thanos is made of, and considering how long they’ve been hyping him up, he has a lot to live up to.
Admittedly, I was expecting more of a teaser trailer for this one, and this newly-released video functions much more as a trailer (and is indicated as such in the description). Additionally, there’s a lot of heft to this, and by all indications, this will be quite a serious affair for the MCU as a whole (unlike, say, Thor: Ragnarok).
Below is the official synopsis for Avengers: Infinity War:
“An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.
“Anthony and Joe Russo direct the film, which is produced by Kevin Feige. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee are the executive producers. Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely wrote the screenplay.”
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4, 2018.
