Are you ready to be blown away?
Marvel Studios released the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War today, and to say it’s astounding is no hype. All of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s heroes come together for this 2 minute and 24 second trailer, giving a peek into what the last several Marvel films have been leading up to — the invasion of Thanos.
Check it out here:
For those unfamiliar with the Mad Titan Thanos, he’s a cosmic supervillain who yearns to collect all six reality-bending Infinity Gems in order to reshape the universe. Most of the gems have been seen in one form or another in earlier Marvel movies, going all the way back to the Tesseract seen in Captain America: The First Avenger. For a full list of the Infinity Gems seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and in which movies, go here.
With so many characters to juggle — including Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, and the full rosters of The Avengers and The Guardians of the Galaxy — don’t be surprised if Avengers: Infinity War has a hefty run time in excess of two and a half hours. And judging by the glee in Spider-Man actor Tom Holland’s face during his totally accidental leak of the first official teaser poster yesterday, the folks who made the film are just as excited as the rest of us.
For now, we’ll just have to keep waiting. Avengers: Infinity War comes to a theater near you on May 4, 2018.
