Everything You Need To Know Before Watching Avengers: Infinity War


Avengers: Infinity War is almost here. The studio’s biggest and most ambitious film to date, it marks the beginning of the end of the first three Phases of the franchise and will act as a celebration of how far the MCU has come since it all started with Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man back in 2008. As such, it will feature every hero still rolling around the shared universe coming together against the awesome might of Thanos.

But seeing as there are so many Avengers at this point, it’s hard for even the most ardent fans to keep track of them all. For instance, you have the original six founding members, then the second generation of the team that debuted in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Plus, there’s also a handful of extra allies for both Team Iron Man and Team Cap that signed up in Captain America: Civil War, not to mention those loose cannons that operate on their own side. Oh, and let’s not forget the Guardians of the Galaxy up in space.

So, how are you meant to remember which characters are going to appear in Avengers: Infinity War and where the heroes will start out at the beginning of the movie? Well, luckily for you, we’ve got you covered, as what you’ll find here is a complete guide to every superhero taking part in the upcoming film, which finally arrives in cinemas in just a few short weeks on April 27th.

Let’s dive in, shall we?
