Just when you think it’s safe to internet, Marvel Studios go and drop the final trailer for Avengers: Infinity War a little more than a month away from the film being officially released worldwide.
We were all pretty aware of the size and scale and scope of this movie but this new trailer goes to show just how enormous not only this film will be but also how ridiculously gigantic the stakes are. Bringing all of the characters from the MCU together is going to mean cramming a big ensemble onscreen but if anybody can make it work it will be the Russo Brothers (Anthony and Joe) who have already helmed Captain America: Civil War and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
The trailer gives us some interesting insight into Thanos’ (Josh Brolin) plan, and by the looks of it we’ll be getting some flashback sequences for that every important character development and backstory.
We also finally get to see some more interactions between some of our faves like Star Lord/Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) trying to convince (badly) Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) that he should come up with a plan. And Spiderman/Peter Parker (Tom Holland) just being his awkward but lovable self as he tries to be cool around real life master of the mystic arts Doctor Strange/Steven Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch).
For those paying attention, the contracts are pretty much all up for Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth. Which means that their beloved characters could well likely not make it out of this movie. It also has a lot of Marvel fans very nervous and likely needing to bring some boxes of tissues with them. Especially since the Russo’s have already teased that death is inevitable.
Brace yourselves folks, because Thanos is coming to mess some shit up.
Avengers: Infinity War is releasing in Australian cinemas from 25 April 2018 through Marvel Australia & New Zealand and Disney Pictures.
