Yesterday at the D23 Expo, Marvel not only revealed to us the children of Thanos [The Black Order] but also showed a five minutes clip of the first ever trailer of Avengers Infinity War. The bottom-line of what was shown is Thanos is far more ruthless than we thought.
[Spoiler For Homecoming below]
It took Ten Years to lead us to this final moment, the beginning of the end of phase 3 of the MCU. After the release of Spider-man homecoming, fans were let wondering if Spidey still has his spidey senses as there was no sign of it in the movie. This new Infinity War clip answers all of that. There’s a chance this is the trailer Marvel will release to the public in October but till then, here is a brief description of what happened in the clip shown.
The footage starts with the Guardians of the Galaxy, now with Mantis, fresh off their victory against Star-Lord’s dad Ego. Peter tells the crew to put their “mean” faces on when they come across a great disturbance in the galaxy. Then, and this is a Thor: Ragnarok spoiler, a beaten Thor (Hemsworth) crash-lands on the Guardians’s window shield.
The Guardians lay Thor on a table, and Mantis awakens him. Thor jumps up and says, “Who the hell are you guys?”
Thor and the Guardians land on an unknown planet, destruction all around them. Something is terribly wrong.
The trailer cuts down to Earth as Mantis explains how Loki is a threat: we hear her say “death follows him like a shadow.”
The next scene then cuts to Loki (Tom Hiddleston), who is holding the Tesseract [Cosmic Cube] and presenting it to someone taller than him, most likely Thanos
Cut to Queens, we get a close-up shot of the hair on Peter Parker’s arm rising, then pulling back to show him looking up at something in the sky. Peter’s hair rising is a first look at his Spidey senses in the MCU. Ooh, he also got a new amazing suit, the one we saw at the end of Homecoming which he declined.
A ship is seen flying toward a planet that’s probably Earth. “We have one advantage,” Tony Stark (Downey Jr.) says. “He’s coming to us.” He being Thanos I guess.
Seems like Iron Man, Star-Lord and Spidey are in another realm at one point.
“Fun really isn’t something one considers when balancing the universe,” a voice says. Gamora looks on in total horror. “But this puts a smile on my face.” Star-Lord manages to get out an “oh no” before Mad Titan Thanos emerges from a blackhole.
There’s a lot of fighting afterwards, Starlord and Doctor Strange are seen helping each other out and fighting together. We get to see Spidey jumpimg around in his new suit. A shot of vision in jail.
A shot of Bucky fighting alongside the Wakanda army and black panther. Captain America has a full beard. Black Widow is now blonde. Iron Man is shown with his new Armour.
Peter Parker is on the ground very hurt. “I’m sorry Tony”, he says behind tears with Iron Man holding his head. Thanos grabs Thor’s head and squeezes. Then Thanos, in the heat of the battle with the Infinity Gaunlet on his hand, uses the power of the two stones he has ( The purple and blue stones) to grab a moon or some sort of celestial being and starts dragging it towards the planet everyone is on.
With the debris flying about, the title card shows. Avengers Infinity War.
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters May 4, 2018.
