This is it! This is what Marvel have been building up to ever since the release of the first Iron Man way back in 2008: Avengers: Infinity War. The first trailer has finally been shared with the whole world, after Marvel gave fans at the D23 Expo and San Diego Comic-Con an exclusive first peak of the footage four months ago.
It’s easily the most anticipated movie of 2018, nay, it’s the most anticipated movie of the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe! Every single superhero we’ve come to know and love over the last nine years seems to be present in the trailer (except Hawkeye, who is conspicuously absent…) and all of them are in battle-mode: ready to save the universe one more time. This time they are facing the biggest threat so far: Thanos. We’ve had a few glimpses of him in previous films, and while he did seem sinister, he didn’t really do much except sit in a chair floating in space. But now, the Mad Titan is here, and he is on a quest to collect the Infinity Stones, complete the Infinity Gauntlet, and take over the galaxy.
From the look of the trailer, it’s going to be epic! Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch and many, many more, Avengers: Infinity War is slated for release on May 4, 2018.
