Today was a big day (of sorts) for fans of comic books and movies based on them. After much speculation (and of footage everyone knew existed because of Comic-Con but that was never released publicly), Marvel finally released a first trailer for next May’s Avengers: Infinity War. Check it out.
The trailer hits all of the high notes, really: moments with the Vision, Spider-Man, Loki, a de-shielded Captain America, and (of course), Thanos. The last shot was necessary to, with Thor meeting the Guardians of the Galaxy (with humor intact). Obviously a big fight in Wakanda. And there’s a lot, I imagine, that we aren’t privy to. Everyone has a theory about what happens as the credits roll at the end of A:IW. Word is that Avengers 4 will be the end of the era. They’ve got a number of actors that have been around for a long while. How they handle a transition away from there will be key. If Marvel can do that well, it will have accomplished something cinematically great.
