10 Things We Learned From The Avengers: Infinity War Super Bowl Spot

By

Peter And Tony’s Strange Team-Up

We’ve gotten used to seeing Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and Tom Holland’s Spider-Man forming a double act, after their mentor/student relationship has been explored in both Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming. Now, though, this TV spot reveals that they’ll have another member added to their dynamic in Infinity War: Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange. Fans have often wanted to see Downey and Cumberbatch, two Sherlock Holmeses, together in the MCU, so this is certainly an exciting moment.

As with many shots we see in this teaser and the previous one, this short snippet shows the three Avengers looking up in awe at something in the sky. Though, hilariously, Peter is for some reason looking in a different direction than Tony and Strange. As for where this comes in the movie, it probably hails from the second act, as Peter is in his Iron Spider get-up in this scene, whereas subsequent shots show Parker on his own and in his classic togs.

A Vision Of Vision

In the last trailer for Infinity War, we glimpsed one intriguing scene. It saw Wanda Maximoff sharing an intimate moment with Vision – but a Vision who appeared human, with Paul Bettany showing up sans make-up for once. How was this happening?

A slightly different clip of this same scene appears in last night’s TV spot and reveals what causes this vision of Vision. Here, we see Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch using her powers on the Mind Infinity Stone in Vision’s head. It seems, then, that Wanda is able to charge the Stone somehow to increase its powers, thereby possibly giving it the ability to show Vision in a different form.

This is a neat scene, as it raises questions about what would happen if Wanda got hold of the Mind Stone, which was previously used by Baron Von Strucker to give her her powers.
