Hulk Meets Black Panther In New Avengers: Infinity War Clip


Bruce Banner bows before T’Challa, current wielder of the Black Panther mantle and the rightful king of Wakanda, in this newly-released clip for Avengers: Infinity War.

First aired on Good Morning America, where the likes of Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie swung by to discuss all things Infinity War, the footage above sees a bumbling Bruce arrive in Wakanda alongside Captain America, Black Widow and an amused War Machine, who watches as his fellow Avenger makes a fool out of himself in front of T’Challa and the Dora Milaje.

It’s the same fish-out-of-water humor that defined Thor: Ragnarok, the cosmic threequel in which Mark Ruffalo’s Jade Giant was crowned champion of Sakaar – much to the bemusement of Point Break Thor. And from the looks of things, this particular sequence takes place long after Hulk’s early encounter with Thanos, one which will presumably have massive ramifications for the remainder of Infinity War.

Chances are that prologue results in Loki surrendering the Tesseract (read: Space Stone) to Thanos, though whether this is a means of brokering peace or some deceitful ploy to join the Mad Titan remains to be seen – remember, Tom Hiddleston’s anti-hero is the God of Mischief, so there’s really no telling what’s going on in that twisted mind of his.

Nevertheless, eagle-eyed viewers have already noticed that Thanos winds up gaining two Infinity Stones by the time Avengers 3 nears its conclusion – peer close enough and you’ll notice that, once the Infinity War trailers switch to Titan, the Infinity Gauntlet holds both the Space and Power gems, which only spells all sorts of trouble for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

And we’ll start to see the full effects of Thanos’ grand masterplan once Avengers: Infinity War begins its theatrical rollout on Friday, April 27th.
