From the time we saw Thanos in the post credit scenes of Avengers back in 2012, we have been teased of his presence every now and then in the MCU. After witnessing the grandeur of the Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 and Thor Ragnarok this year, the Russo brothers have said it ample of times that Infinity War will change the course the Marvel movies and heroes have been going on since a decade now. After a long wait of 10 years and 17 movies, the Infinity War Trailer just dropped yesterday and is trending on #1 spot on YouTube. Shaping up to be one of Marvel’s biggest movies ever, uniting the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and almost every other Marvel superhero, these heroes are banding together to face off against Thanos, the big bad of MCU.
The Infinity War trailer is packed with immense potential and not to mention so many steal-my-money moments for comic book fans who were expecting this big movie for years now. Captain America is sporting a beard and totally living up to his title of World Sexiest Actor Alive. The newbie Spider-Man is getting that tingling Spidey-sense and is looking kickass in his new Iron Spider Suit. Doctor Strange and Wong are now friends with the Hulk (who is now away from Thor and Loki) and Iron Man. And then there’s an attack on Black Panther’s kingdom of Wakanda which he has to save now. Even though the trailer ends with Thor meeting our favourite Guardians, how he encounters them is still a mystery!
For the people who love strong and bad ass villains, Thanos is not working alone here.He needs his henchmen wherever he goes. If you see the trailer closely, you’ll come across someone who has bluish colour hair and is aiming for Captain America with a spear. Going a bit deep in the comic world of Marvel, this character is called Proxima Midnight and is a part of 2013 crossover event known as Infinity, where Thanos assembles a team called the Black Order and then attacks Earth in order to complete his Infinity Gauntlet with the help of 6 Infinity stones; The Tesseract, Aether , The Orb, Mind Stone, Soul Stone and Time Stone. This big superhero team up is set to be a major, game-changing film for Marvel, that the story will spill over to a second Avengers movie set for release in 2019.
We had got a glimpse of still un-aired Infinity War Trailer back in July at San-Diego Comic Con which was leaked on the Internet, but this one is here is more intense, exciting and is as good as it could have been. As the new trailers for Infinity War are released in the coming months,we as Marvel fans will be able to piece together the puzzle even more and connecting dots after this one just gives goosebumps. For now, Infinity War looks every bit like the massive superhero team-up that Marvel promised it would be and we hope this movie shatters every box office record when it hits the theatres on May 4th, 2018.
