While we await the release of the first trailer for next year’s Marvel extravaganza, Avengers: Infinity War, one fan has decided to create their own effort. The twist is that this trailer teases the upcoming movie in the style of Justice League‘s promotional campaign. In particular, it apes what we saw with the final preview for DC’s team-up film, including the use of the cover of David Bowie’s “Heroes,” – which, as you can imagine, works equally as well for the Avengers as it does the League.
The trailer draws some fun comparisons between the shared universes, too. A nice touch is swapping the Justice League trailer opening at the Kent farm for Clint Barton’s rustic family home from Age of Ultron. Likewise, it reminds us that the main plots of The Avengers and Justice League are basically the same. As Tony Stark says, both revolve around “an alien army charging through a hole in space.” Plus, there’s the genius, non-powered billionaire on the team who feels guilty for putting the world at risk for something he had a hand in (Ultron’s creation/Superman’s death).
What the fans are coming up with is all well and good, but when are we going to get our first official look at Infinity War? Well, we know that it’s due to arrive in December, possibly as early as either the 3rd or the 4th. However, thanks to some leaked footage, we recently got an exciting glimpse at the movie (at least, until the clips were taken down) and from what we can gather, the trailer will feature a prominent role for the Guardians of the Galaxy, Steve Rogers and his band of outlaws and also unveil Thanos himself.
Avengers: Infinity War will be with us on May 4th, 2018, which means we can expect that first bit of footage any day now. Stay tuned for more.
